    They say that every... single... year to produce hype in potential customers ($$$).

    We already know everything already:
    • 4.7 inch iPhone
    • 5.5 inch iPhone
    • iWatch
    • iOS 8

    Cool find.

    REALLY hope Apple can live up to the hype they've built, however. Unusual for them to hype this hard.

    A reporter with ABC news labeled it as historic. I don't consider that (in and of itself) noteworthy.

    I've never seen the label ever used by a media company in conjunction with an Apple interview since the iPhone. I'll take it with a grain of salt.

    The video is not working for me. What do they mean by "exclusive"? Surely David Muir will not be the only person in attendance.

    Seriously. I said this in another thread -- they must really have something up their sleeves to be this confident. Maybe another feature to the phone we haven't heard about :eek:

    Edit: Never mind, I guess its just that's he's going to be the only anchor there.

    Best products in 25 years. I guess we're in store for something amazing. I'm crossing my fingers for a technological advance as the day the first iPhone debut.

    It is extremely vague. What is the "exclusive"? Are they trying to make people think they can ONLY find out through ABC whats happens at the event?

    The only anchor? So what? Everyone is going to know about the announcements 7 seconds after it comes out of Tim's mouth.

    Im expecting to be underwhelmed. Whenever musicians make these types of claims they can never live up to the hype. Im suspecting Apple will be no different in this regard.

    I know everyone is going to know. Im just explaining to you why they're saying exclusive. ABC is saying that they are the only news channel there, so they're saying they have the exclusive.

    Exactly....especially after the last 2 years have been nothing but disappointment on the iPhone front.

    Disappointing to who? You perhaps, but don't generalize.

    Not attacking you. Just pointing out the desperate and ludicrous things the media says for views/ratings.

    And I really doubt they are going to be the the only news channel there.

    What do you KNOW about the 5.5 inch one???
    I will tell you - NOTHING, except a leaked battery (and even that is just a wild guess)

    Not true....Amazon and spigen are selling 5.5" iphone 6 cases which makes me think they know something. They wouldn't bulk manufacture & sell cases based on 1 leaked battery photo :
