Apple MP3 players
The iWatch rumours are heating up as consumers await Apple's next new product. A timepiece seems more likely to be a profit machine than that other rumoured Apple device, the iTV.
Sharing the stage with the iPhone 5 today, Apple's iPod range has received a major update, with a new, taller Nano design and a new-look iPod Touch.
Apple has quietly released a new 16GB version of its iconic device and dropped the rear-facing camera.
Since 2004, Apple's September/October announcements have always included an iPod refresh, and there's no reason to believe that this week's unveiling will break with tradition.
Imagine a world where Apple never revolutionised digital music and it might not be that bad a place. In fact, it could be an improvement.
Those wishing for Apple to bring a camera back to the iPod Nano may have a new glimmer of hope today.
Apple is close to completing deals with the "big four" record companies that will enable it to launch a fully licensed music service in the cloud.
Apple initially hoped to announce 90-second samples in September, but licensing issues pushed the announcement back.
That Apple September music event? It's happening earlier than anyone expected this year.
At Apple's press event, CEO Steve Jobs showed off what is essentially a modest face lift for iTunes 9 with improvements to Genius, music-sharing capabilities and the "LP" format.
