If you’re like us, and probably the rest of the world, then you’re excited about Apple’s announcement today at 1:00 p.m. E.T. If you haven’t been following all of the Internet rumors, here’s a last minute summary of what you can look for.
Four Things to Expect from the Apple Announcement:
- Revamped design: There’s been a lot of talk about a new, smaller dock connector for the new line of Apple products. The positive about this is that it’s supposed to allow for a better battery life. The negative is that consumers will have to buy all new accessories for the new products.
- New iPods: Let’s not forget about the iPod, which can do pretty much anything an iPhone or iPad can do. Apple is expected to introduce a new line of these as well.
- “iPad mini”: Also in high anticipation is the expected announcement of a smaller, more affordable iPad. A reduction in size and price should make it a fierce competitor in the tablet market.
- The iPhone 5: In our eyes, this is the most exciting announcement of the day. Rumor has it that the design will feature a larger screen and thinner body. The phone should also have 4G LTE capabilities. Pre-orders are likely to start today, with a shipping day schedule for later in September. Yay!
