Just because a technology exists doesn't mean it's widespread. Before the iMac, PCs had USB ports but it was extremely hard to find USB keyboards, USB printers and USB scanners. By releasing the iMac, companies were forced to upgrade their peripherals or they were losing part of the market.

IIRC, event invites usually go out no more than a week ahead of time. Interesting that this one is coming out sooner.

As for the tagline - perhaps it has something to do with Siri? On a wearable? Hmmmm....

Analysis!
The top of the Apple logo casts a shadow, as if it is higher than the surface. This indicates the similarities to the protruding lens on the iPhone 6, as it'll tower over the flat iPhone surface and cast a shadow.

Also the date is 9.9, turn those around and you get 6.6 = Resulting in two iPhone 6 models. The 4.7'' and 5.5'' model.

No we don't know anything. Rumors do not equal fact.

That shadow means a clock pointer.

I wish that shadow in the top of the apple, secretly means a clock point for the iWatch.

Well the style of the the date is obviously like a digital clock. No idea about the grey pattern behind though.

Wish we could say more... Carrier limits on phone minutes per month? Is Apple about to roll out some sort of 'pure' VOIP network so that we can "say more", so that we can somehow ditch cell minutes? Just a thought.

Feel free to flame, or to say that someone else pointed this out, or to give me Lana Del Rey's phone number.
Lol highly unlikely but that was funny, the lana del rey part

WOW! This is such a surprise that this is the day of the announcement. Didn't expect that. Wish I saw some leaks about this date.

Solar powered iWatch with Sapphire screen

Invite image looks like the sun shining down on Apple. Solar powered iWatch with Sapphire screen? That would be a great feature!

The gray pattern in the background is actually a closeup of the Apple logo. There's a darker gray shade to the SE side of the leave on top of the apple.
