The big news on Tuesday was Apple's official confirmation of a media event scheduled for September 10, exactly as the rumor mill had predicted. While no one outside of Cupertino knows for sure what's coming, it's a good bet we'll see the latest iPhone (and maybe a candy-colored cheaper version) as well as any other surprises in store with iOS 7.
