In less then 30 minutes Apple will be unveiling the next best iPhone and hopefully some other products as well. From the many rumors, we will be expecting to see only two products during today’s announcement which will be live streamed via the Apple Events page at 1:00 PM EDT. We can expect to see the iPhone 5S, a replacement model to the iPhone 5 with a few minor tweaks and very similar form factor. And we can also expect to see the iPhone 5C which is a lower tiered “plastic” type iPhone for those that want the iOS experience but can’t afford to pay the full pop. ( The C is supposed to stand for Color folks, not Cheap)
We also can expect to see a gold/champagne colored iPhone 5S being added to the traditional white/black. And of course, we will see iOS 7 in its final format. We have seen six beta versions and looking for that seventh which will most likely be made available today for developers and we sure hope to see A LOT of changes before going Gold Master.
And here is a list of announcements we would like to see:
- iPad Mini Retina
- iPad 5
- iWatch Smart Watch
- Apple TV (the much anticipated television, not the set top media streamer)
We have found a leaked video teaser about the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C so this should keep you interested while we wait for the official event to start.
Yes, obviously its not a leaked video, but we sure do find it funny, along with almost 3 Million hits they have received thus far.
If you want to watch the event, stay tuned as we will try to get an embed link just as soon as we see one available. Or go to the Apple Events Page and keep your refresh button active. (Please remember you must be using Safari for the live stream)
