It's that time of year again, Apple will be holding a special event on September 1 in San Francisco. But to keep with Apple's tradition, nothing was mentioned on what the audience can expect to see.

There has been a number of things floating around the Internet that consumers hope to see Apple finally unveil at there event next week. One of the many things we hope to hear Apple talk about is the new iTV. The next big update to iTV has been rumored to support brand new hardware, similar to the iPhone 4 - using an A4 processor - which will connect via HDMI to your HDTV, allowing you to wireless stream content or rent TV shows for as little as $0.99.

Next on the list is the 4th generation of the iPod touch. Apple has already released a new iPod touch every year, surprisingly in September, months after the new iPhone model launches in the June / July time frame. The last two generations of the iPod touch have been released on September 9; Apple normally releases new products within a week or two of the announcement.

Hopefully there will be an announcement about iOS 4.1 for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

The event will start at 10AM PST / 1PM EST.

I hope a iTunes for windows that doesn't suck.

LOL. Not likely. Apple doesn't know how to code for Windows properly. Or at least they choose to do a crappy job.

there, fixed

if that were the case, why cant you come out with a way to install non apple store apps on the iphone without having to jail break the phone... they must be doing something right...

If they were doing it right, then there would be no jailbreak at all.

Ever heard about the Playstation 3?

Works fine for me. There's room for improvement, but it's not broken.

I just brought a iPod Touch 3G 64GB. (well, 4 months ago)
My guess:
Redesign, Possibly. - Like the iPhone 4.
128GB Version - Pretty Sure.
Same HiDef screen as on iPhone - Definitely.
Wi-Fi N, as on iPhone 4. - Definitely.
And Built in Camera. - Most Likely
And, something new and surprising... - Maybe

Wombatt said,
Front facing camera, with Facetime - Highly Likely!

Yes, and that would be a nice way to ease the barrier of entry for FaceTime.

I think it's going to be the main focus on its new feature set.

Plug in my HUGE LONG 1970 CB antenna to my iphone and what do you know....NO MORE DROPS. lol

Can I have one pls......I still get dropped calls on my 3G. :-(

Hope Steve throws in a bit in the end and tells us when the rest of the world is getting that iPad or the second gen, wouldn't mind that

Hopefully ios 4 for the iPad. Long overdue.

We have known since before the release of iOS4 that the iPad will get it this fall so I wouldnt call it overdue, would me nice to get a date though... Even though I would be more interested in a Swedish release date for the iPad, or the second gen iPad maybe

Not for consumers. Devs haven't even gotten a beta for it yet. But I think a dev preview might be announced at the event.

shakey said,

They did, i bought it a loooong time ago.

you must be holding it wrong because it clearly isnt working as everyone sees you on every apple related post.

blockcipher said,
I hope they release the iDontCare

That's the product where you press a button and it generates snappy email responses for Jobs to use when denying a customer's issue, right?

the picture of the guitar obviously means the event is related to music and ofcourse that would mean the new line up of ipod and ipod touch.

September is pretty much reserved for the iPod line. It likely will be the iPod Touch v4. I don't see anything being released for the iPhone4. The antenna issue has been solved (or not).

The Apple iTV is not going to happen, at least not at $99. What's next a $299 Mac Mini?

The original Apple TV was announced in the september event, and itunes tv/film renting etc. It's their media/music event so if there is going to be a new Apple TV it will be announced at this event.

Maybe they'll announce a hardware refresh of iPhone4, now with working Antenna.

No need works just fine, i was quite worried to have some real problems with that specially at home where my reception is only 1-2 bars... but no, never had a single problem, that is I can produce it if i want to but i have never had a problem in daily usage

So you just admitted that it is a problem you can reproduce, yet you say it works just fine?

Seriously?

OK, reading comprehension check.

"never had a single problem"
"I can produce it if i want to"
"i have never had a problem in daily usage"

Let's see, if these three points are taken together -- where do we end up?

I can picture a user who can reproduce a problem if he holds the phone in a way that causes it, but he never has a single problem and have never had it in daily usage, since he doesn't hold the phone that way. I don't think I'm leaving some logic holes open here.

If the problem is happening, you are holding it wrong according to apple fans boys who use the device.
If the problem is not happening, you are holding it wrong according to everyone else who doesnt use the device.

Should be interesting. I always love drinking a cup of coffee and watching these Apple events on my media center PC in my living room
