    A couple things I've read dealing with some analysis of the invite. One - the image seems to symbolize a force touch. A finger as the Apple leaf pushing down on a surface, the apple. So force touch is implied and likely on the new iPhones. Second, the colors and scheme are very similar to what Siri looks like on the Apple Watch. Not sure what this means, but considering the text on the invite image specifically called out Siri, maybe there is more improvement to Siri than we've already been led onto. Exiting stuff.

    One theory is that Siri will be activated by a Force Touch...

    One thing we're not likely to see is the 32 gb base model. It looks as though they're sticking with the 16 gb. If the leaked pic of the box is to be believed. 64 gb here I come.

    A popular tech site is reporting that "trusted sources" claim that Apple is planning to introduce two new iPads at next week's big event: The long-rumored "iPad Pro" and a refreshed version of the iPad mini, dubbed the "iPad mini 4."

    I'm most excited about the AppleTV. lol Roku just sent out an email today saying they will no longer support original Roku hardware, of which I have one, and it's slow as heck. But I also have a newer one that works great. So I'll be looking for a replacement for the old one.

    Move over, iPhone 6s! Move over, new iPad!

    Apple has something else up its sleeve that might just steal all the thunder right from under the new iPhones and iPads.

    New Apple Watch Sport bands in aesthetically pleasing colors.

    +1 on that! I can't wait to see what they'll whip up in terms of leather and silicone options this go around. I need a few new Apple cases. I've grown quite used to the current bunch. It's time to spice it up!

    Apple has been decorating the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium ahead of the "Hey, Siri" event.

    A white Apple logo with rainbow-colored accents against a blue background is shown on one wall of the auditorium, shared by CBS/CNET photographer James Martin:
