Apple Event Scheduled for Wednesday Sept. 9–Music, NO Tablet
It has happened every September since 2005, and in a few short weeks it will happen once again. Apple (AAPL) is indeed planning a keynote event for the week of Sept. 7, as reported by my colleague, Peter Kafka. And according to sources close to the company, the date is Wednesday, Sept. 9.
The event will be held in San Francisco–most likely at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where it has occurred in years past–and is expected to showcase upgrades to the iPod line and an update to iTunes that may involve some sort of social element. Our sources insist it will not involve any discussion whatsoever of the tablet Apple is reportedly developing.
No word yet on who’s to preside over the event. There’s been speculation that it will mark the first public appearance by CEO Steve Jobs since returning from medical leave earlier this year. Our sources have no information on whether or not that will prove true.
