    Flint Center seats about 2,500. I'd say that's pretty big for a media only event.

    Apple is also building a structure at the location. Probably for a 'hands on' area not found within the center.

    Especially given the larger screen phones we're all anticipating, my sense is that this time around Apple will continue the trend toward a larger, more international list of invitees.

     

    Reaching out to global media mavens may also account for the longer invitation lead time...it's a lot more difficult to schlep from UAE or Beijing to Cupertino than from Boston or New York.

    I honestly don't think there was anything thought through it. I think it's just people grasping onto anything...

    Hopefully the morons have learned their lesson after being banned for the past five years.

    I can support your idea.

    The image looks like a finger pressing a flexible display--and from the tagline, maybe with haptic feedback.

    Nah! It's it's a top-down view of someone's bare backside showing the top of their butt-crack (Viki Dugan?) ... I can't, for the life of me, imagine what that odd-shaped component above the butt-crack is ???

    There, fixed that for you. :-)

     

    Could someone/those familiar with these venues please enlighten us plebs on (the) possible reason/s for a change this year.


     

    Larger venue, closer to Apple HQ, on the same stage where the original Mac debuted 30 years ago. I saw on MacRumors that a large installation is under construction at the Flint Center. Yerba Buena Center has multiple exhibitions going on right now that are open to the public. I doubt that Apple would be able to take over the entire venue for two weeks and do this kind of construction while keeping things under wraps.

     

    Flint Center is on a community college campus, but fall classes don't start until late-September (quarter calendar). So, there won't be nearly as much activity around the venue between now and September 9.

    My guess:

     

    Cut out Apple logo (like we saw in part leaks) for the iPhone represents the raised logo in the invite.



    And the reason for it being cut out, and not aluminium, is because they need to use the Apple logo as an Antenna for NFC.

     

    NFC used exclusively for payments integration with existing contactless systems.

    Can I sign up for automatic shipments of new iOS devices?

    They couldn't just rent one of Google's mysterious barges?

    Or perhaps the new iPhone is too big to squeeze into the Flint Center.

    755 seat Yerba Buena vs 2300 Flint Center, over 3x seating capacity! Absolutely flabbergasted that there hasn't been one leak of this watch. Apple security is tighter than Uncle Sam. Or -- as I've often speculated -- Apple is responsible for spreading the majority of rumors about Apple.

    Seeing capacity at recent Apple events

    Apple campus town hall: 301
    Yerba Buena Center: 757
    San Jose Center for Performing Arts: 1,122

    Seating capacity of Flint Center: 2,405
