CNET's Apple Sept. 10 event live blog

Join CNET for live coverage of Apple's event on September 10, to be held at its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. We're expecting new iPhones, and maybe more.

    "That's the first of our breakthrough technologies in the iPhone 5S." What next?
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:47:08 PM
    Why, camera next. "People love taking photos with their iPhones and its iSight camera."

    The M7 is very intriguing. Wonder if that re-emerges in an iWatch.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:47:41 PM
    "It used to be the way you took better pictures was you learned to take better pictures." He's showing all the gear you'd have to buy and training you'd need. "For the people who want to do this, that's great. But for most of us, we just want to take a better picture."
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:52:21 PM
    There's a burst mode too, 10fps for as long as you hold your finger on the shutter. (This, presumably, is what it's doing in the background all the time.)
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:52:23 PM
    Burst mode will help me get a picture of Al Gore next time.

    So, what do you all think so far?
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:52:56 PM
    "Now, if every time you did this you'd have to go to your camera roll and sort through your photos, the fun would be lost." But, of course, Apple has your back. The Camera Roll will present its favorite, and you can look at the rest if you like.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:53:05 PM
    (we haven't even gotten to that Home Button yet)
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:53:06 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:53:10 PM
    And, if it's an action sequence, it'll choose a few favorites for you to look at. All automatically done.

    There's a 120fps slow-motion camera too. We're looking at someone do a rather impressive backflip belly flop into a pool in slow-mo.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:53:52 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:54:10 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:54:11 PM
    The faster video-recording framerate offering slo-mo: good for pool dives, tricks
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:54:14 PM
    "All of these great features and technologies are simply in service of taking a beautiful picture."
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:54:22 PM
    Showing video and pics.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:54:31 PM
    We're looking at a bunch of examples now, all raw photos from the 5S. Typical macro flower shot, some chilis from the garden.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:54:38 PM
    Might we see a hot air balloon, like usual?
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:54:43 PM
    Very nice looking fruit and jellyfish and flowers.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:54:48 PM
    Here's a jellyfish at an acquarium.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:54:52 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:54:53 PM
    The jellyfish: that's a challenging shot.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:55:11 PM
    And another picture of the famous squirrel from the last presentation. The California Ground Squirrel, apparently.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:55:16 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:55:16 PM
    I would never get that close to a ground squirrel.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:55:18 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:55:24 PM
    And, yes, it takes great pictures of kids, too.
