Apple will be hosting an event Sept. 7 where the company is widely expected to announce the latest version of the iPhone and possibly some other new devices as well.

The company sent out invitations for the event to the press Monday morning. The event is set to be held at San Francisco's Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and will kick off that day at 10 a.m. PDT.

On even years, Apple typically introduces completely redesigned versions of the iPhone complete with new major features, a new look and a new number for the model. But this year, many speculate that Apple will buck the trend. Rather than a new design, many experts anticipate Apple will introduce a new iPhone with the same look and features that are only incrementally improved, saving a major refresh for 2017--the iPhone's 10th anniversary.

So what can you expect from the new iPhone on Sept. 7? It is widely believed the device will feature an improved processor, a larger camera and no headphone jack. That means you will likely have to use Bluetooth if you want to connect a pair of headphones, or else use new ones that can plug in through the Lightning charging port -- although then you won't be able to charge and listen simultaneously.

Aside from a new iPhone, Apple is expected to announce the launch day for its iOS 10 operating system. There is also speculation that Apple may unveil a new version of the Apple Watch. There is also a chance that the company uses the event to announce new versions of its MacBook Pro laptops.
