While this one didn’t exactly require that we tap a worm hole to check with Nostrodamus, it would appear as if Apple is planning a media event this Fall, just as the company has done for the last several years. Kara Swisher of AllThingsD (and a little rag called The Wall Street Journal) reported Wednesday that “several” unnamed sources have told her that Apple will be doing it again this year, “possibly in mid-September.”
Apple has used media events in the Fall to unveil new iPods, new versions of iTunes, and other consumer-oriented product announcements for many years. At last year’s event, the company announced iTunes LP, iPhone OS 3.1, iTunes 9, 32GB and 64GB iPod touch models, a new iPod nano, and updated versions of the iPod classic and shuffle.
This year, Apple is expected to rev the iPod touch, possibly adding a camera and adding in FaceTime support for the device. Ms. Swisher noted that Apple declined her request to brief her on the unannounced event or to forward her the slides that will be used.
