Today's Apple event is likely to emphasize the power of polish. Patient folks who have waited for the refined updates to Apple's latest hardware are likely to be rewarded. Refined updates of the iPhone, Apple TV, and iPad, each with a bit more power and a handful of novel features, have been rumored to make an appearance.

Read next: The iPhone 6s review.

We should learn about the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. They're likely to look the same as their predecessors, but with faster processors, an improved camera, and Force Touch, the haptic feedback already part of newer MacBook trackpads and the Apple Watch.

We're hesitant to say anything, but this will probably be the year Apple updates the Apple TV. The Apple TV has been rumored for previous Apple events, only to be a no-show, but all signs point to the new Apple TV, now with a Siri integrated remote, showing up on stage. The rumored price tag is somewhere between $149 and $199, a significant bump above the $69 asking price for the current model. Perhaps Apple will show the long-rumored Apple TV video game controller.


Predictions are hazier the deeper we look into the crystal ball. The rumored iPad Pro — possibly larger, more powerful, and stylus-friendly than those currently available — could steal the spotlight. We have to imagine Apple will have something to say about Apple Music, which has been taking a critical thumping in recent weeks. Maybe it's time for new watch bands? And what about a video streaming service? Would Apple launch hardware without a flashy subscription service to justify the investment? We'll have answers soon!
