In this episode, we will bypass the speculation nonsense, other than making sure you know about the Tuesday, September 14 Apple Keynote. It’s at 10 am PDT streaming live, and will be available later. We are expecting to see several new models of the iPhone, an AppleWatch and other hardware and software announcements.
