The next iPhone could be just weeks away - Apple has announced its next special event, sending out press invites for the morning of September 12 (local time). 

Invitees will attend in-person at the Steve Jobs Theater inside Apple Park, the company's headquarters in Cupertino, California, while the general public can watch online from 10am PST (September 13, 5am NZT).

Apple's event invitations are always closely studied for hidden meanings, with this year's featuring a disintegrating, multi-hued Apple logo and the tagline: "Wonderlust."

The company is expected to unveil the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, with rumours that the next generation of the iPhone will bring significant upgrades including new colours, better battery performance, a switch from the Apple's proprietary lightning connector to the USB-C, faster charging and highly improved camera capabilities, according to 9to5Mac, a tech blog that closely follows Apple rumours.

New iterations of the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Ultra are also expected.

The 'Wonderlust' event comes about three months after Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) unveiled updates to multiple hardware and software products, as well as its highly ambitious mixed reality headset, the Apple Vision Pro.
