The next Apple Media Event keynote is upon us tomorrow, Tuesday September 10th, 10:00 Pacific Time (13:00 Eastern Time/18:00 BST/19:00 CEST). 

 

What do you expect to see during the event? 

 

Pretty much a given are iPhone 5S/5C, the general release of iOS 7 for the iPhone, a new version of iTunes. Apple might tell more about new iPads, the release dates of iOS 7 for the iPad and OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

 

Do you think there will be 'one more thing'? Perhaps something entirely unexpected? Discuss below.

I think we will see the iPhone 5c for sure, but I am really thinking we may see the iPhone 6 instead of 5s as earlier predicted.  Multiple reports of Apple apps being updated over the weekend and the decription reads "updated for iPhone 6". They have seen changed the description to iPhone 5. 

 

I do think we will see GM of both Mavericks and iOS7 tomorrow.  I also think we will see a new mini and 5. If not then definitely see them the first of the year like Apple did last year. I think it really depends on how much is "new" with the new iPhone if we see new iPads or not. 

 

On that, do we know if Apple is planning on livestreaming the event?

I get the feeling Jobs (who made the company mega successful twice - so he should be listened to) would have hated two models of the iPhone to be released at the same time (premium and budget models) (simply because it aids customer confusion) just as much as he'd hate an iPhone with a screen over 3.5"-4" (which was used to make the phone easy to use with one hand if needs be).

Due to this, I am hoping the 5C, if real, is for the more emerging markets only and not destined for the Western world.

I expect so, they usually do :)

The last keynotes were streamed, but with a twist: For it to work you had to use Safari on OS X or iOS. Chances are this will be the case again this time.

I think we'll also see a software update to the Apple TV if latest rumours are to be believed. Announcing new partners such as BBC etc...

I always find these sort of polls interesting if only because it's based on what leaks there have been and not what there might be.  For example the iPhone 5 came out which we all knew but was anyone expecting Siri or a Maps change?  I wasn't following leaks as much as I do now.

 

They did show us a great deal of integration between Mavericks and the iPhone so I'd expect some new software features to jump onto that.  I'm on Mavericks Developer Preview 7 and there doesn't seem to be much more hidden in the way of integrated services that wasn't already announced.

 

I could see this keynote being more of a how to and an explanation of how iOS 7 fits in with the new iPhones that are coming out. More of a like a huge briefing and demonstration as it's a massively radical overhaul for iOS so much like with Mavericks it'll be software demo's galore.

They've done that for a few years now. In 2011, you could use a trick to get the stream to work using VLC but I don't believe it worked in 2012.

 

Gits.

Fingerprint sensor? If that isn't leading the sheep to the wolf. Their mouth must be watering thinking about getting that piece of data.

LTE-Advanced!!!

 

Rogers (one of Canada's big three) sent this today at noon (via iPhoneInCanada.ca).

 

That could be cool. :D

You can already save credit card numbers in iOS, so the fingerprint data doesn't make me nervous. I'm sure lots of people with tinfoil hats will be up in arms.

How about a new Thunderbolt Display? No, seriously, I'm in need of a new one.

All I'm interested in is the OSX Mavericks release date, so I'm hoping it'll have that.

Excessive prices.

Steve Jobs has been dead for two years, it's time to move on from thinking about what he would or would not do.

 

And, frankly, I'd say he'd listen to his customers who have clearly demonstrated they do want phones larger than 3.5''. The iPhone 5 reflected this.

 

I'd expect iPhone 5C/5S and firm release dates for both iOS 7 and Mavs.

The Apple online store has just gone down ahead of today's event.
