(AP Photo/Richard Drew) (Newser) – The new iPhones are coming, and they could be bringing some friends with them. The Verge reports Apple has scheduled its iPhone launch event for Sept. 9, which isn't a surprise. What is a surprise is the unusually large venue—7,000-seat Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco—booked for the event. According to the Verge, this could mean big news is on the way. In addition to the expected iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus—likely featuring a better camera, pressure-sensitive touch, and better processors—attendees and people streaming the event could get a first look at the new Apple TV and a larger iPad Pro, Gizmodo reports. That's all well and good, but we're holding out for the iPhone 7S Jetpack.
