Apple’s fall product announcement begins at 10am PST; 1pm EST.
Definitely: Next-gen iPhone 5S, iOS 7, OS X Mavericks, iTunes 11 (with iTunes Radio), updated MacBook Pro.
Maybe: New iPads (though I’d bet on spring instead), lower unsubsidized-cost iPhone for other (non-American) countries, updated iMac, updated Thunderbolt 2 display (with USB 3.0)
Not a chance: An HDTV, a wrist-watch, a pull-string-to-talk Steve Jobs doll.
How’d I do?
How good were my predictions? Well, this event was a little shorter than I was expecting and they only covered iPhone-related stuff.
- Next-gen iPhone 5S. Check.
- iOS 7. Check.
- iTunes Radio. Sort-of. It got coverage on the website, but not the event.
- Lower unsubsidized-cost iPhone for other (non-American) countries. I’m going to say I was wrong. Instead, Apple changed their strategy and created a slightly-modified iPhone 5 called the 5c.
- New MacBook Pro. I was also wrong here.
