It’s time to watch US import data for signs that new Apple products are ready for picking.

The Loop reports that Apple has sent out invitations to an event on September 10 at the company’s Cupertino, Calif., headquarters.

Cue the rumors that a new iPhone is about to be unveiled.

Meanwhile, there is speculation over at the Huffington Post that a new Apple TV is soon to be announced based on three import shipments in August.

Here are the records of those shipments pulled from our US database:

These three were among 969 records of shipments to Apple Inc. between May 28 and August 26. All offer potential clues to what’s next  from Apple.
