The news comes from All Things D, the Wall Street Journal-affiliated tech blog that has a solid track record for reporting inside Apple information.

Apple is believed to be working on a smartwatch and a TV, but neither of those products are expected to be ready for rollout at next month’s event.

Likely to be called either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 5S, the phone’s release date would fit the schedule Apple has established since the first iPhone was released in 2007.

The company has released a new iPhone model every year, and the release dates have all been in the summer or fall. The iPhone 5 came out in September 2012, the iPhone 4S in October 2011, and the three versions before that in the summer months.

The upcoming Apple event will come at a unique time for the tech giant, which has dominated the smartphone and tablet markets for almost as long as they have existed. Android-based phones like Samsung’s Galaxy S4 have put a dent in iPhone sales, while some critics have said the latest updates to the iPhone and iPad lack significant innovation.
