Apple sets Sept. 9 for iPhone unveiling

Tech Industry
A ton of new iPhone news has just hit. I'm Jeff Bakalar filling filling in for Bridget Carey this week. This is your CNET update. [MUSIC] Invites for an Apple event on September 9th went out today and yes, this is very likely, when we'll see the next iPhone in action. The invitation teases a single sentence. "Hey Siri, give us a hint." So obviously, I asked Siri about that. [NOISE] Hey Siri, give me a hint. Look deep within yourself and you will find the answer, especially on September 9th. So what else will the September 9th event bring us? Rumours have been swirling about the next iteration of Apple TV. That is definitely overdue and maybe a larger iPad. Sure, why not? But back to the iPhone, 2015 is an S year for the mobile device, meaning historically Apple doesn't necessarily refresh the look of the phone as much as they improve a few things under the hood. So here's what we've heard, the next iPhone will massively upgrade it's camera. First the megapixel count will jump from eight to twelve, Also the camera is said to be able to record 4k video meaning it will join a very short list of phones like the Samsung Galaxy S6. The front-facing camera will also get an update including a screen based flash, not an actual LED light We've also heard reports that the phone will get a force touch display for shortcuts in using iOS 9 and an apple watch inspired animated wallpaper. Switching gears towards other forbidden fruit, some new data about the infrared encouragement site Ashley Madison is beginning to take shape. According to a reporter at Gizmodo, the millions of men who were paying for the site to get hooked up with potential female cheating partners were being misled about just how many real life women were actually Using the site. Aside from the numerous claims that Ashley Madison was creating fake female profiles the Gizmodo reporter concluded that there were only around 12,000 women who actively use the site. So who's worst here? The men who use the site expecting to cheat? Or the site itself that fabricated an active female user base, essentially planning to tease people forever. I'm not picking sides, okay? They're both equally terrible. I'm just saying it's a weird sort of thing there. And finally Instagram appears to be loosening its policy on the aspect ratio of submitted photographs Today, you can start uploading content in landscape and portrait orientation. Now all we've got to do is stop vertical videos and we've got ourselves a good internet again. That will do it for me today on update. For the very latest head over to cnet.com. From our studios here in New York I'm Jeff Bacalar.
