Germany has just become the focus of Apple fans all the world as two of their top carriers have tipped off a possible launch date for the next iPhone. According to German Apple news site Macerkopf, carriers are expecting the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus to be available starting Friday, September 18.

Earlier reports have indicated Apple would be announcing its new iPhones on September 9, so having availability for its new devices nine days later makes definite sense. The iPhone 6, for example, was introduced on Tuesday, September 9, with pre-orders starting that Friday, September 12. It then launched on Friday, September 19 of last year. It appears the iPhone 6s will follow a very similar launch timeline.

As for iOS 9, Apple typically releases its new OS a few days before the phones are available, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see it go live around the 15th or 16th of next month.

Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are expected to receive big upgrades internally. Rumors point to each getting 2GB of RAM, Force Touch technology on its display, a better camera upgrade, and more.
