What would you like to see announced? ROUND 2!

So we have one press conference confirmed for the 12th, and another already hinted for October. It therefor seems like an appropriate time to ask the community what they hope Apple will unveil. Please don't say "a new iPhone" or "iOS 6 release date", as those are hardly speculative.


As for me personally...
- a fifth-gen iPod touch
- Time Capsule with ability to sync directly with iOS devices and iCloud.

Edit: Event #2 set for October 23rd.

That they will pay their workers in Asian factories a decent wage and ask them to work decent hours - and not just announce but do it.

The latest rumours indicate NFC is out for this iteration. You'll know tomorrow for a fact.

IMO, Apple screwed the pooch on the 5th generation touch. I guess next year it will be as thin as a credit card then the next year it will be as thin as paper! Yuk. They can keep it.

This isn't unprecedented. When the third gen touch released they kept the second gen around for the entry level.

From the list of features I wanted, this is what they've added and not added so far. As more details are revealed, I'll update this list.

I know; still, it sucks for those wanting a decent iPod touch.
