Live blog: Apple's 2013 iPhone announcement (and an Apple TV?)

Join us for live coverage of Apple's announcement.  Will it be just an iPhone?  Will it be a 5S or a 6?  Will there be an Apple TV?  Will the whole thing be a disappointment?

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

And now you can watch the whole keynote video online, @kmingis

RT @gkeizer: Apple dips toe into lower-priced waters with $99 iPhone 5C, but disappoints analysts. #iphone2013 @kmingis

Apple has posted video of today's announcement on its site. @jonnyevans_cw

In case you want to take a look, first hands on with iPhone 5S video I've seen so far @jonnyevans_cw

@MattRosoff yeah confusing tweet, but the price difference isn't wide enough. At present i agree with market. Rare. #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

AAPL shares fall $13. Why? Because iPhone 5C and 5S prices similar ex-US. I don't get it. It makes little sense to me. Anyone? #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Hmm, well they did say it wouldn't be 'cheap', but this is useless: 16GB iPhone5C unlocked costs $529 #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Apple iPhone 5C PR: @jonnyevans_cw

Apple confirms iPhone on NTT DoCoMo -- not china Mobile? @jonnyevans_cw

Press releases are shipping now! @jonnyevans_cw

..and the band is Elvis Costello. His Wise Up Ghost album shipped this week (I think) @jonnyevans_cw

Ah well, that's the end. "We hope you love these new products as much as we've loved creating them" Cook. Cue Band. #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

…and iPhone 4S will be free on 'many carriers' after rebate. When's it ship? Pre orders Sept 13, sale Sept 20, Sept 27 elsewhere #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

PRICE: $199 16GB, $29932GB, $39964GB. #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Pre-orders for the new iPhones start Friday the 13th; available on 9/20. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

THIS IS IMPORTANT: your fingerprint does NOT get stored on Apple servers. So not hackable by miscreants and NSA. #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Prices for the 5S: Same as current phone: 16GB is $199; 32GB is $299; 64GB is $399. #iphone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

No your fingerprint info won't be uploaded to Apple's servers. It's encrypted on the device. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Authentec -- Touch ID..scans finger…in sensor in ring..purchases via iTunes accounts..and it is sapphire lens…#iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

RT @MattRosoff: It's nice that my phone will finally have the same technology used at 24-Hour Fitness to get me in every day. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

1o hrs 3g talk, 10hrslTE browsing, 10 hrs video -- that's why chip is dual core, so you can use it, rather than carry a brick #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

And the 5S' fingerprint scanner button can be used to do iTunes purchases. Move over NFC? #iphone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

As expected, the 5S gets a fingerprint reader home button to unlock the phone. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

add slow motion, 120fps video capture, and you have a flexible camera you have everywhere, again, Leibovitz will like... #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

My other half will love 10fps burst mode for our many pet shots! #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Camera takes multiple shots auto chooses sharpest. (Clever). Two LED flashes (clever). Image stabilisation! Leibowitz smiles. #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

RT @shawkeith: BREAKING: iPhone 5S camera features will let users create better-looking selfies and Instagram pasta photos #iphone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Numerous tweaks built into the Camera app for better white balance, etc. A "true-tone" flash. New 5-element lens. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Motion co-processor: wouldn't happen to be small enough for something like a watch, would it? #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

RT @ryan: Motion co-processor in new iPhones. Bad day to be Fitbit, Nike, and Jawbone.#iphone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Interesting. An M7 motion co-processor in the iPhone 5S for health and fitness apps. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Infinity blade developers claim took just two hours to convert game to 64bit #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

iPhone 5S is A7, 2x faster, 64-bit architecture, 40x faster than iPhone 1, OPenGL 3, #iphone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

RT @shawkeith: I can't wait for grandma to get excited about a 64-bit iPhone. #iphone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Up to twice as fast as the previous iPhone with twice the graphics performance. #iphone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

The iPhone 5S gets the A7 chip, a 64-bit processor. Mobile chip wars! #iphone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

The iPhone 5S will come in silver, gold and black. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Though to be fair the price is equivalent to iPHone 4S before,but is new. Get new not old. I reckon they change price in 6mths. #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Here comes the iPhone 5S. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

"Arsenic and android free". ROFL (maybe just a LOL 00 you decide!) #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

RT @ZAGGdaily: The iPhone 5C Comes In These 5 Colors [PHOTO] - @jonnyevans_cw

I'm a bit blown away on price: ¢99 for 16GB (w contract) or $199 for 32GB. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

I'm curious: 28 mins in and we already had iWork/iLife, iOS, iPhone 5c. Perhaps there's more surprises…#iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

What it has: A6 chip. 4" retina, made of tough plastic, steel reinforced, so durable (unlike some, right?) #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Apple is making cases for these -- presumably to grab a little margin back on the ????price #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

iPhone 5C: Green, red, blu, yellow, white. #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

yet still they tease. graphics show iPhone shapes, but no detail -- but Schiller says iPhone 5C 'colourful and fun'. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Two iPhones and no iPhone 5 #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

This is cool: All iLife and iWork apps are now free on any new iOS device. So thats quite cool for standard use, right? #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

iOS 7 compatible with:iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, iPad mini, iPod touch 5G #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Reminder: iOS 7 works on the iPhone 4 or newer, the iPad 2 or newer and the 5th-gen iPod. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

iOS 7 ships September 18. So Wednesday next week. #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

iOS 7 arrives 9/18 #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

interestingly, all the iOS screenshots are cropped not to show new home button or device shape -- oh they tease us so…. #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Move over Pandora, here comes iTunes radio, which allows you to create your own "station." #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

iTunes Radio: choose stations, create your own, genres, or artist search .. #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Interesting new personal assistant features -- mobile future is computers more intelligent than you are (really) #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

If you're a Siri fan, you'll be happy with improvements in iOS 7, including 2 new voices, better search tools, Federighi says. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

And here;s Craig Federighi to talk iOS7. Interesting how Ive shuns the spotlight #iphone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Now it's Craig Federighi talking up iOS 7, says Apple expects quick uptake once it's released. #iphone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Cook brags that Apple will ship its 700 millionth iOS device next month. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

It begins with an iTunes Festival plug -- live streaming concerts, of where might this go? #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

Apple's event is under way and CEO Tim Cook is already talking up the iTunes Festival in London #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

In case you missed the AppleHolic's cameo appearance in the UK Daily Mail, @kmingis

@jonnyevans_cw Adding to the "not today" prediction list. OS X Mavericks or iPads. Today is all about iOS 7 and phones. #iphone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

Predictions: iPhone(s). Yes. New iOS, Apple TV OS, yes. Apple TV hardware, No, iWatch? Not yet I think they want better battery #iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

The survey says: 2% of Android owners will definitely buy the new iPhone. @jonnyevans_cw

So will the fingerprint sensor be 'Touch ID'? I think there's interesting potential here, @jonnyevans_cw

And, of course, the Apple Store has gone dark….#iPhone2013

Jonny Evans @jonnyevans_cw

We'll be live tweet blogging tonight's iPhone announcements, don't miss it #iPhone2013

Ken Mingis @kmingis

All eyes on the iPhone 5C today @gkeizer #iphone2013 @kmingis

I can't believe people are lining up for new iPhones…. Well, yes I can. #iphone2013
