Apple to host music-themed event on September 1st Apple has sent out invites for a music-themed event on September 1st, leading many to speculate that the company will finally announce an updated iPod Touch, likely one with a camera.
Historically, Apple has announced updates for their iPod lineup and for the iTunes media store in September.

Furthermore, many believe Apple will announce a new generation Apple TV, one that uses flash memory instead of a HDD, an ARM processor, and relies more on the "cloud."

Apple is currently negotiating deals with CBS, Fox and Disney that would allow iTunes users to rent TV shows for 99 cents an episode. All appear close to signing off, at least for some of their programming.

While still speculation, it is believed Apple will add at least one camera to the updated iPod Touch, while updating the display to a higher resolution.

Apple declined to comment further on the event.
