The leaks about the iPhone 6 are everywhere these days, pouring in like there's no tomorrow. But what about when Apple will actually announce its latest smartphone?

Thanks to a few unnamed sources, who claim they were briefed on the Cupertino company's plans, we now have an unveiling time frame to speak of.

And just as you may have expected, it's reportedly bound to happen in September. Nothing is set in stone just yet, but the second and third weeks of that month seem to be the only ones left in the running for the placement of Apple's event. Just a couple of days ago we heard that September 19 would be the big date, and that's in the third week of the month, so it fits.

However, do note that various "manufacturing uncertainties" might alter these plans. Whenever the event does happen, it will introduce the 4.7-inch iPhone to the world. This is said to be a given, along with the company providing the final details about iOS 8 (which has been in beta for weeks).

The 5.5-inch iPhone 6, on the other hand, may not get mentioned at all at this September gathering. A final decision on whether it will debut alongside its smaller sibling hasn't been made yet. That's because the 4.7" phone is currently farther along both in testing as well as manufacturing preparations.

Obviously Apple could in the end decide to out both models at the same time, or the phablet may be presented later - perhaps in October, when a second fall event is scheduled to take place. This is when Apple's entry into the wearable space might finally become reality, and it's also when it will talk more about the latest version of Mac OS X, Yosemite.

New iPads are on the way too (and they've been leaked quite a few times already), but no revolutionary changes are expected. They should get the Touch ID fingerprint scanner, as well as slight hardware upgrades.

As for iOS 8, the fourth beta is currently available for developers, and the fifth and last one should follow on August 4. After this point the golden master version of the OS will be completed either in late August or early September.

Later on, in iOS 8.1 or iOS 9, a split-screen multitasking mode for iPads should be launched, along with new features for Maps.
