Looks like in September the guys from Cupertino will show us only the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus as well as the iPad mini 4. Just like new iPhones, Apple’s iPad Pro will support the Force Touch technology currently used in the Apple Watch and several MacBooks from the 2015 lineup.
According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, Apple won’t release the iPad Air 3 this year.

The next-generation iPad mini will have iOS 9 on board and support all the features of the new mobile operating system. Apple suppliers have reportedly started the production of the components for the upcoming device, which may be officially announced alongside new iPhones on September 9th.
Two other videos showing a leaked part for the upcoming Apple gadget have recently appeared on the Internet.
