    Lets lower your very high expectations so that we won't be disappointed if the keynote is a downer (Which I personally think it won't).

    iPhone:

    - They will release one iPhone 6 with a 4.7"
    - It will have the same battery life as the iPhone 5s
    - It will have a very protruding camera lens almost a 1/4"!
    - The thick lines on the back are actually thicker and are only their for design.
    - It will cost $300 now instead of $200 and $750 off contract for only 16gb.
    - No sapphire.
    - No NFC
    - Same resolution as the iPhone 5s.


    iWatch

    - It will not appear.
    - If it does, it will only show you notifications that you can not interact with.
    - Does not look as good as the Moto 360.
    - Cost $400.
    - Has one day battery life.
    - Only works with the iPhone 6.
    - Launches in 2015.


    That is all. I hope when the keynote is here, all of these will be wrong! But just in case of feeling bummed, I am personally lowering all my very high expectations so when I watch the keynote I will be blown away, or satisfied since thats what I expected.

    My expectations aren't high at all.
    Reading this forum basically told me everything that is going to be unveil at the keynote.

    No tears will be shed.

    I do believe in an iWatch announcement, what better time to announce an iPhone accessory than during the new iPhone keynote?

    LOL. I really don't have any expectations. Component leaks are fun but we really don't know all the details of the product.

    Yep. It would be cool to be surprised, but I'm heavily doubting anything mindblowing. Honestly with leaks all around, it's hard to be surprised with phones at all.

    That's true.
    I have never been mindblown because I never paid attention to releases. I found out about the iPhone 5 like after I bought my 4 in 2012.
    Now I'm never going to be mindblown because I joined this forum.

    okay.

    iPhone 5ss:

    4.1 inch plastic screen, making all cases incompatible
    512 mb ram because iOS 8 is "more efficient"
    8 MP camera because of new iOS 8 improvements
    4/8/16gb sizes
    no LTE
    requires 2 AAA batteries
    PenTile display
    800x400 resolution
    the GPU from the first iPhone

    Could care less about the iWatch. I do expect Aplle to step up with the 6, they have little choice.

    Will everyone be happy, heck no. In fact we will have the same poor battery post, yellow screen, miscolored backlight, nicks and scrapes as we did when the last new iPhones were introduced.

    Also expect the wild comments like one person who complained about how the iPhone smelled when they opened the box. Hold on everyone, it will be a crazy ride no matter what your expectations. This place will provide great entertainment for the coming months. :p

    Just think 1GB of ram, then if it does come with 2GB then ya all can bounce around like pups at feeding time. :)

    My expectations for 9/9: new iPhone shown off with a launch date, with new hidden iOS 8 features. Maybe a preview of an iWatch like device, but not expecting.

    The only expectation that I have for each iPhone is that it is better than the last.

    I'm sure nothing will be mind blowing or revolutionary. Maybe they will "revolutionize" something that android had 3 years ago but that's about it. And they will go on to say how great the new iOS is with the new colored icons and such.
