Apple iPhone 6 event officially set for Sept. 9

The venue on the De Anza College campus also is a change for Apple. It has tended to hold most device launches at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco or on Apple's campus in Cupertino. But Apple also has some history with the Flint Center. Steve Jobs unveiled the first Mac there in 1984, and he also showed off iMacs at the location in 1998 and 1999. The Flint Center can accommodate a larger crowd than the recent venues Apple has used, indicating the event's importance to the company. Apple already has started making the Flint Center its own. The company has been building a large structure on the college campus, which was earlier spotted by MacRumors. We've contacted Apple and will update the report when we have more information. CNET will bring you full coverage from the event, starting with a live show before Apple's launch begins and a live blog with all the announcements.Updated at 12 p.m. PT with additional details.
