Apple has to pull off the show. Tim Cook, Phil Schiller, Craig Federighi, Eddy Cue, and whomever else takes the stage have to take the stage and own it, show off their new iPhone lineup and wow us, stick the landing and fully kick their biggest business once again out the door.

What are you most looking forward to at the event? Is it the new iPhone 5s, perhaps in gold? The iPhone 5c in one of a half-dozen bright plastic shells? Is it iOS 7? Something more specific, like the fingerprint scanner or iTunes Radio? Or are you holding out hope for new iPods? Vote in the poll up top and give me the details in the comments below!
On September 10, at 10am Pacific Time, Apple will hold their first major product event since October of 2012, and only their second event of 2013, following the developer-centric WWDC Keynote. That's compared to countless Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, Motorola, Nokia, BlackBerry, and Facebook events. It's also in stark contrast to previous years, where Apple had the Macworld keynote, and later had the spring iPad event to keep the flow of new products more evenly spaced. That doesn't mean we'll get everything this month, however. Far from it. The "This should brighten everyone's day" event is being held in Apple's small Town Hall venue in Cupertino, and looks to be incredibly focused. For the first time ever, Apple seems poised to not only introduces the new flagship iPhone 5s, but a second, less-expensive iPhone 5c as well. iOS 7. Could there be anything else? Could there be iPods or iPads or Macs... or one more thing? We'll be doing complete coverage on our amazing new iPhone event page, but here's a quick roundup of what we expect - and don't expect - to see!

Apple has just sent out invitations to their next iPhone event, officially scheduled for September 10, 2013. On the agenda should be the widely anticipated iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, perhaps with some iPods thrown in for good measure. iPads won't be on the agenda. Jim Dalrymple of The Loop:
