Right, everyone, start your engines and do some deep analysis of the invite ;)

I reckon the slide for 'one more thing........' will be a video of Steve saying it.

Followed by the long awaited introduction of the PowerBook G5.

I think the invite is maybe pointing to the fact there will be another event, we won't be able to get it all done at this one.

Also interestingly they are building their own structure at the site, so wonder why they need that? Apple build massive side stage for iPhone 6 event (http://www.cultofmac.com/293100/apple-builds-massive-side-stage-iphone-event/)

Yeah, perhaps the iWatch won't be announced until October or November (together with new iPads).

Although why announce at the Flint Center if only the new iPhone will be presented?

Does Apple wish they could say more now? Or do they wish they could say more on September 9?

Well there's no colour in this invite, interestingly as we've had colour in all of the invites lately if I recall correctly. Wonder if it means anything.

The new iPhone will probably be big enough to fit a G5 chip in it ;) ;)

I'm thinking iPhone 4.0 and 4.7 and possibly the iWatch at this event. Perhaps the new Macbook Air gets demoed, and is a while off like the iMac late 2012 (Demoed but took a while to come out). Then the October event sees More Macs, iPads, iPods, Bigger iPhone.

You really want that new 4-inch don't you Oldmacs lol

Ok I am going to throw a wild piece of speculation out there. In the tradition of breaking the wording down, I think there is a key word here 'wish'.

There is a Apple product near everyone wishes for. What? A real Apple TV.

So I am thinking they show one at this event, maybe not for sale for awhile. The building next door is a demo area where the executives from the various media companies Apple has entered licences with, can show of their Apple TV offerings to the media masses.

Now I know no leaks at all to support this. However a TV might not be manufactured in China, which clearly would help with the leaks given what we are seeing with the iPhone.

Anyway it likely is just an iPhone and iWatch event, and the building is for all the third party people on board the wearable for demo's. Still I really like the idea of a real Apple TV.

I'm going to take a stab at guessing what it means: expansions to the Siri API.

kerr
29th August 2014, 12:45 PM
I'm confident that a 4.0" iPhone will be mentioned. Either an iPhone 6, a new iPhone 6C or just the existing iPhone 5C.

29th August 2014, 01:36 PM
Maybe I'm looking too simply at this... but in the sentence "Wish we could say more" the word 'say' jumps out to me because at the end of the day a phone was (is?) about making calls. So perhaps its simply pointing towards a phone?

Oldmacs
29th August 2014, 02:46 PM
I was thinking something along the same lines... But an iWatch may do the same thing - or its Siri and siri is on the iWatch?

Didn't they already advise this was going to happen at WWDC when announcing iOS8?

29th August 2014, 08:27 PM
I would have thought that the "say more" is hinting towards the size of the next iPhone.

In all honesty, I think it has something to do with Apple containing their excitement through the plain and non-suggestive nature of the invite.

Just an observation.

Or, maybe on the day they wont announce the 5.5" version, and thats what they cant say more about.

Or, maybe they just love seeing all the conjecture about hidden meanings that dont really exist.

Could the stage not be for a band or mini-concert? Something to do with the new Beats acquisition?

That could be, though I'd imagine they might want to wait for an iPod refresh/music event for that?

Who says they're not going to do that as well? The iPod event used to be in September/October before the iPhone got moved to post WWDC.

Oldmacs
30th August 2014, 08:52 PM
I'd say iPods will get done at this event. Note sure what will be done though. Can't see what they could do the the nano besides a software refresh to bring it inline with ios 7. The touch obviously needs to be updated to avoid another fiasco like the 4th gen ipod being sold way past it's use by date. The classic who knows and the shuffle I also suppose wouldn't need anything done to it.

I'd just like to see Siri work as well as Google Now, I find that Google Now rarely, if ever, makes a mistake in what I say. Siri on the other hand had difficulty with the Kiwi accent.

I personally feel that the iPhone 6 is merely going to be playing catch up to where the hardware for Android phones has been for some time now, unless Apple pull something really spectacular out of the bag it won't bring me back to the iPhone.

Pretty much this. It's pretty obvious if you don't read too much into it. Apple give you a date, nothing more...for now. We all know they like to keep their cards to their chest until the event. So they can't say more until then.

Ok late prediction, given all the Fashion people. There might be a iWatch but it will go further and I think include sensors in clothing somehow. Far deeper Intergration into every day life than just a band on the wrist. Not sure how but you don't have all these fashion big wigs there for a watch only,

Nice streaming page, Apple.
Pity it's dropping in and out ALL THE TIME.
And the Mandarin Chinese is just icing on the cake.

Wished I simply slept this morning to download the stream instead.

This stream has been a huge fail.

And I don't care to learn Chinese either.

I've just moved to HK and thought that must have been causing the Chinese overlay (even though it's Mandarin). Apparently not! Fail...

Let's hope the iPhone and future apple products aren't as buggy as their stream. We need Steve back. He would be rolling over in his grave if he saw anything of this standard.

They finally switched it off!! (the Chinese that is).
And the stream seems stable again.

I had issues for a good five to ten minutes just getting a feed and got dropped in for about 35 secs after they announced the 6 and 6+ and got to see the size comparison with the 5S and then it really went to s^($!.
I found it hilarious that after that it reloaded the page and had the normal apple page banner menu and everything below that was plain text.

Roundly disappointed now. i stayed up for this too.

Still two new iPhones, Apple Pay and Apple Watch is a pretty decent list.

expect another keynote next month for Macs and iPad refresh.

Interesting on the watch no talk of battery life (for the Apple Watch), suspect that means they are still trying to get it to a deceent number.

The entry point is US $349, if there are 2 storage sizes, the larger capacity big watch will be damn expensive in AUD

Been sitting on my hands for ages but I really want one. If only so I can offload some songs from my laptop which gets ridiculously full when itunes goes on downloading sprees.

Also, managed to get on the AU store briefly gave me an A$1,249 for a 128GB iPhone 6+ which is not bad

Oldmacs
10th September 2014, 06:54 AM
Most disappointing keynote ever :P iWatch interface looks so ugly, iPhone 6 looks like a me too knee jerk release. No 4 inch A8. Goodbye to normal sized iPhones.

Why the hell is there 1. Still a 8GB 5C?, 2. a 16 GB 6 and 3. no 32 GB iPhone 6?

AfterBurner_1
10th September 2014, 09:28 AM

The 5C is the new entry level iPhone and 8GB has been Apples entry level RAM amount for a while now; basically the 5C has taken the 4S place as Apples pre-paid phone.

No comment about the 16GB 6 :)

As for the iPhone 6 the real question isn't why is there no 32GB version but rather why is there a 16 GB version?

Yeah but surely they would have moved the entry to 16 GB by now.

Stab in the dark for 2015 and 2016:

2014
5C - 8
5S - 16,32
6 - 16,64,128
6+ - 16,64,128

2015 (5S drops from mid to entry, new 6C as mid)
5S - 8
6C - 16, 32
6S - 16,64,128
6S+ - 16,64,128

2016 (6C drops from mid to entry, 6S becomes mid, smallest 7 now 32GB)
6C - 8
6S - 8, 16
7 - 32,64,128
7+ - 32,64,128

Each year, the C model will alternate from mid-level to entry-level, as we have now seen with the 5C.

Geoff3DMN
10th September 2014, 12:13 PM

5C - 16
5S - 32, 64
6 - 32, 64,128
6+ - 32, 64,128

If Apple are trying to keep the entry level production costs down the 8GB will be cheaper than 16GB is all I can assume.

If I was doing Apple's marketing then for maximum market differentiation and avoiding complexity I'd have chosen -:

5C 8GB
5S 16GB & 32GB
6 & 6+ 64GB & 128GB

But I'm not Apple (which is probably a good thing for them... if not for me) :)
