    I'm a little surprised that the Lightning connector didn't herald faster USB 3 / Thunderbolt connectivity. Next year, I guess, maybe?
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:45:01 PM
    Little did our photographer James, who has done a killer job by the way, know he would be doing concert photography this morning...
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:45:44 PM
    Yes, James, thank you!
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:46:21 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:46:58 PM
    That song wraps, we're hearing another.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:47:20 PM
    I'm starting to settle into concert mode.

    "One of the great things about being here is beging able to meet all the people, the great people that are shaping our future," Grohl says. "And just like when you get to meet someone like Little Richard, or Tom Petty, or Jimmy Page, you realize these are just people who took it upon themselves to do something different and change our world. ... they're just flesh and bone, they're just people, and it's totally inspiring."

  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:48:59 PM
    As Grohl & co. launch into "There Goes My Hero" another one of the band's hits.

    By the way, looks like Apple's home page has updated with some of the new gear. Though it's loading poorly for me here.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:52:02 PM
    And the Foo Fighters wrap up their second song. Looks like we're getting three.

  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:52:57 PM
    "This song's about starting over" Grohl says. We're hearing Walk, which the Internet tells me is the second single off their 7th studio album.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:53:31 PM
    "Learning how to talk again," is one of the lyrics. I see what you did there Grohl.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:54:30 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:55:37 PM
    Someone is, of course, taking concert pics on an iPad in front of me.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:56:00 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:57:07 PM
    The concert just wrapped.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:57:17 PM
    Tim Cook back on stage, applauding them.
  • Joshua Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:57:29 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:57:30 PM
    "You guys were awesome," Cook tells Grohl.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:57:46 PM
    Cook says we've got a hands-on area. We'll have first look videos and photos coming up in a jiff.

  • Darnell 9/12/2012 7:19:19 PM
    So who will be the best carrier for the iPhone 5?
  • David Hamilton 9/12/2012 7:19:40 PM
    @Calineil On behalf of everyone who was doing the actual work here, thank you.
  • Steve Grosz 9/12/2012 7:19:53 PM
    @David Hamilton I think it would have been nice if Apple would have let us watch the video live online :)
  • rcola45 9/12/2012 7:20:05 PM

  • Rich Brown 9/12/2012 7:20:12 PM
    Agreed, thank you.
  • c. heath 9/12/2012 7:20:18 PM
    No iPad?
  • Neil 9/12/2012 7:20:29 PM
    This was disappointing to say the least
  • Tom Burke 9/12/2012 7:20:35 PM
    I want to thank you for a great morning and discussion about iPhone 5 and the other new Apple items. I am a current Android Motorola Photon 4g from Sprint and want to upgrade to iPhone, would the iPhone 4s be worth it or should I wait for Sprint to get the iPhone 5? Tom
  • Georges 9/12/2012 7:20:52 PM
    By the way, On the iOS
    6 Page for Siri says: Siri is available in Beta only on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad (3rd generation), and iPod touch (5th generation) and requires Internet access.
  • Sterling Jordan 9/12/2012 7:21:09 PM
    Do you think there will be problems with the first gen iPhone 5's that come out?
  • Berthman 9/12/2012 7:21:26 PM
    From Comparison on Apple site:

    SIM Card
    Nano-SIM
    iPhone 5 is not compatible with existing micro-SIM cards.
  • djsamsoul 9/12/2012 7:21:28 PM
    Wait, there was no Ipad Mini. So that was wrong. Also, what about iTunes needs to be simplified
  • JStrickland 9/12/2012 7:21:44 PM
    The iPod Nano is for people like I used to be. They have teen daughters who wouldn't be caught dead with something as big and "boyish" as an iPod touch.
  • Ceida Nevarez 9/12/2012 7:21:52 PM
    will the new phone be able to have facetime without being on wifi?
