Apple Special Music Event 2010

Kodawarisan is reporting that Apple will hold it's annual fall event -- traditionally the Special Music Event that focuses on iTunes and iPod -- on September 7, 2011. That's a Wednesday and broadly consistent with Apple having held their annual fall event during the first week of September for the last few years now.

Typically Apple has introduced new versions of iPod touch at the event, along with the rest of the iPod family, and last year introduced the new, iOS-powered Apple TV 2 as well. This year, of course, where WWDC 2011 came and went with nary a new iPhone in sight, we're all waiting to see if Apple uses the fall event to launch iPhone 5, or to at least show it off before an October release.

Apple being Apple, however, we likely won't get official confirmation until invitations for the annual fall event get sent out only a few days before hand, and we won't know if a new iPhone will be announced until Steve Jobs holds it up on stage.

Either way, with up to 5 new iOS devices in the pipeline, it could be an exciting event to say the least.

Until then we'll keep casting the augurs and looking for signs.
