Hey Kit Eaton here, I'll be here tomorrow to comment on the news as Apple reveals it to us. But for now, here's the low down on what we expect to happen: Apple Rumor Patrol
. In short, we're looking at the new top-range iPhone 5S, a colorful plastic iPhone 5C, iOS 7, and OS X Mavericks -- and, just possibly, some new Macs and maybe more!

By now, we all know the iPhone 5C that will come in different colors. But why does Apple release products in more colors? Steve Jobs was bummed by the original blue iMac, even though it was a huge success.

This recent Apple ad critique by Co.Design's Mark Wilson
is spot-on:As we’re told that products are what matter, we see a series of shots in which people actively turn away from life to engage with their technology.
“This is it. This is what matters. The experience of a product.”
These are the opening words of Apple’s heartstring-tugging "Designed In California" commercial. Read them to yourself a few times. Then wonder why someone inside the company didn’t insist upon this copy edit:
“This is it. This is what matters. The experience of a person.”

Some fresh news adds a touch of authenticity
to the iPhone fingerprint scanner rumors... and the tiny sensor could add some amazing powers to Apple's iOS
. Of course a fingerprint sensor could mean Apple has some of your sensitive biometric data recorded in its archives, though that's not really a cause for panic
--after all, there are great security reasons supporting the idea.
