The now-annual Apple September music event is happening, but the exact date is still to be determined, according to a report by AllThingsD.
On Wednesday AllThingsD said it is hearing from several sources that the traditionally iPod-and-iTunes-focused event will take place "closer to mid-September."
Since the first one in 2005, the event has been held around the second week of September, usually the week following Labor Day. A rumor circulated last week that Apple was planning to completely change things up and. That appears even more unlikely now.
Apple declined to comment on the report.
But beyond when the event is to be held, more interesting is what will Apple talk about? It's going to be hard to top the drama of last year's September event, which featuredto the public eye following his medical leave for liver transplant surgery last year. But there are interesting possibilities when it comes to new products.
We know Apple is working on an iTunes streaming or cloud-based music service, and the music-related event seems like a natural time to roll that out. ThoughApple isn't quite ready yet to do that. It's also the event Apple uses to announce new iPods. It's widely expected Apple is going to and introduce the FaceTime calling feature of the iPhone 4, and even its "retina display."
But what else? Leave your best guesses or wish lists in the comments below.
