CNET's Apple event live blog (Wednesday, September 12)

This event has concluded. Apple has officially announced the iPhone 5.

  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:13:24 PM
    New store page a lot like the ones on iOS with tiles.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:13:36 PM
    Bruce Springsteen. Born to Run. Now playing, in case you were curious.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:13:48 PM
    Just like on iOS you can also hear a preview when you're browsing other parts of the store.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:13:49 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:14:12 PM
    The store feels a little more like Apple TV in terms of movie discovery/browsing.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:14:13 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:14:18 PM
    Robin ends the iTunes demo. Cue back up.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:14:37 PM
    The gist of that: simplified UI, iCloud integration, new mini player.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:14:47 PM
    Available in October, Cue says.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:14:53 PM
    Wonder what the hold up is.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:14:54 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:14:59 PM
    Okay. Nice to see iTunes get some attention.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:15:24 PM
    Apple's Greg Joswiak up to talk about iPods. 350M iPods sold in total.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:15:29 PM
    Greg Jozwiak, now discussing iPod. What's going to happen here? I was wrong again: iPods will emerge today.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:15:38 PM
    We don't do this just for the numbers, Joswiak says. Today changes ahoy
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:15:46 PM
    First up - the nano.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:15:53 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:15:54 PM
    The Nano: showing evolution. Uh-oh...I see a change.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:15:59 PM
    Good-bye, watch?
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:16:02 PM
    Joswiak says the company wanted to reinvent the product.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:16:20 PM
    Big display, new volume rocker.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:16:23 PM
    (Nano needs iTunes store access)
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:16:30 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:16:31 PM
    Lightning connector.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:16:52 PM
    New 7th gen iPod nano. Looks like an iPod Touch meets Nokia Lumia.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:16:57 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:17:07 PM
    Hmm...a return to the big-screen form. Very clean-looking, Fans of the older Nano are rejoicing.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:17:12 PM
    5.4mm thick, 40% thinner than the 6th-gen iPod nano.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:17:12 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:17:30 PM
    Fans of the Nano watch are snatching up older models while they can. Sorry, Nano watchband makers.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:17:30 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:17:38 PM
    The volume rocker on the side also doubles as a way to play and pause the music, as well as scroll through it. Display is 2-inch, multi-touch.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:17:49 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:18:09 PM
    Odd looking home screen with apps -- but not the apps you can get on the app store. 7 colors, and the background wallpaper on the device matches the color of the device itself.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:18:28 PM
    Bright colors. Purple, green, blue, yellow, red, black, silver. Looks like anodized aluminum.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:18:29 PM
    FM tuner built-in with live pause.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:18:31 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:18:43 PM
    More like the apps on the current Nano, on a larger screen.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:18:48 PM
    Can view photos, and widescreen video. Big claps for that later item.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:18:48 PM
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:19:06 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:19:16 PM
    Fitness and pedometer apps built in. Integrates with Nike+ out of the box, Joswiak says. Also Bluetooth.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:19:28 PM
    (...will it have Wi-Fi?) Well, it does have Bluetooth. That's big.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:19:32 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:19:33 PM
    Bluetooth lets you wirelessly stream to external devices like cars, headphones and speakers.
