Apple is widely expected to unveil the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6 Plus S. Typically, the company launches upgraded versions to existing phones under the 'S' range.

Media reports have indicated that Apple is preparing for the largest initial production run for its next iPhones by the end of the year.

The new iPhones are also said to feature Force Touch technology, which can distinguish between a light tap and deep press.

Cross Research analyst Shannon Cross said she was also expecting a faster processor on iPhones.

'We assume that they may come out with a new iPad at the event as well,' Cross added.

When users posed the question in the invitation to Siri on their iPhones, Siri threw back responses such as 'You're cute when you're desperate for information' and 'You'll have to wait until September 9. I bet you were one of those kids who snuck downstairs to open presents early, weren't you?'

The event will be held at 10:00 a.m. PT in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, which can hold about 7,000 people.

Apple did not immediately respond to requests for more details on the event.
