SAN FRANCISCO (REUTERS) - Apple invited media to a "special event" in its hometown of Cupertino, California, on Sept 9, when the iPhone maker is expected to unveil the latest versions of its best-selling smartphones.

The launch date came as no surprise, as it had been widely reported.

Apple was expected to unveil larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens for iPhones, a move thought to be driven in part by the success of archrival Samsung Electronics with its larger devices.

Tech blog Re/code also reported Apple may introduce its long-awaited smartwatch.

Thursday's typically cryptic invitation read "Wish we could say more" on a simple black-and-white background dominated by Apple's familiar corporate logo.
