Apple holds a music-focused event in the autumn every year, which usually heralds the debut of a new iPod touch, an iTunes refresh and other service-focused announcements. This year, the music angle may be less in evidence, since the autumn launch is expected to see the unveiling of the iPhone 5, and possibly even an iPad 3 too. So when is it happening? The last three were in the early part of September, and one strong rumour on Friday put this year’s event on 7 September. However, it’s already been debunked by another Apple-watching site, The Loop, which says that date is incorrect (but doesn’t provide an alternative – presumably saving that for another traffic-hogging post in a few days’ time). We still think the music aspect is important though: music is less strategically important for Apple than it ever has been, but with iCloud launching soon, the event will show just where music stands in the company’s priorities.
