Moving on to iPhone. The name of the new device is the iPhone 5, says Apple marketing exec Phil Schiller. The iPhone 5's features include a taller display, LTE, an A6 chip, camera improvements, a new dock connector, and iOS 6.

Schiller says the iPhone 5 is the world's thinnest. It weighs 112 grams -- 20 percent lighter than 4S.

Like the old model, the iPhone 5 features Retina Display with 326 pixels per inch. But the screen on the new iPhone offers a taller, 4-inch display.

Apple gave a few companies early access to the iPhone 5 so they could update their apps. One of those was CNN, Schiller says.

iPhone 5's A6 chip gives it a huge jump in performance, but it's 22 percent smaller than the A5 chip, Schiller says.

Schiller says the iPod 30-pin connector, which launched in 2003, has served the company well for almost a decade. "A lot's changed and it's time for the connector" to evolve. The new one is called Lightning.

"Whenever we have a music event, we like to remind ourselves and our customers of why we do what we do, and there's no better way to do that then to have one of our favorite musical artists to perform," Cook says.

"One of the great things about being here is beging able to meet all the people, the great people that are shaping our future," lead singer David Grohl says. "And just like when you get to meet someone like Little Richard, or Tom Petty, or Jimmy Page, you realize these are just people who took it upon themselves to do something different and change our world. ... they're just flesh and bone, they're just people, and it's totally inspiring."
