Apple announced Thursday that it is hosting a special event in Cupertino, California, on Sept. 9, 2014.
With only the words "Wish we could say more," the email invitation confirms a media event for what is widely expected to be the launch of the iPhone 6.
"This is going to be very little surprise in terms of what they announce," said Brian Blair, analyst at Rosenblatt Securities. The only question is "nobody knows what the watch looks like."
At the very least, Blair believes Apple will release the iPhone 6 and a wearable device touted as the iWatch, since the two are likely meant to work together.
Although Blair released a report in May stating that the wearable will have a round face, he believes production won't begin until late September, which means no one has seen the actual product yet.
Sources have said that Apple will likely unveil larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens for the new iPhones, the first time the firm has introduced different sized models at the same time.
Phone production has not been smooth, as supply chain sources told Reuters the backlight that helps illuminate the screen had to be revised, putting screen assembly on hold for about a month.
Wired Magazine also reported that the new phone will feature a payment feature, likely built upon near field communication technology.

The Cupertino-based firm is also reportedly producing a , although analysts were not sure if the new iPad would come out in September or during a separate event, thought to occur in October.
Apple's push for bigger displays is thought to be an effort to counter the success of archrival Samsung Electronics with its larger devices, especially in Asia.
"We don't know if there will be an iWatch at the event," Forrester analyst J.P. Gownder said. But "Apple has a long history of of taking newish products and turning them into a strong category."
