5 New Products Apple Likely to Announce

Apple is on deck for an introduction of new music products and services next week. Here's a guess at what's coming.

NEW YORK, (TheStreet) -Apple (AAPL) - Get Report is set to unveil some new products Wednesday at a conference in San Francisco, and if history and the guitar art on the event invitation is any clue, the theme will be music.

Normally, Apple's annual late-summer/early fall hootenanny is a showcase for new versions of the iPod and iTunes, although two previous events included the introduction of Apple TV and its successor.

Like prior Apple events, there's a fair amount of speculation about what's in store. And given the heavy interest among investors, guessing what's up Steve Jobs' sleeve has become a favorite Wall Street pastime.

Here are the top five things you are likely to see from Apple Wednesday.

TST Recommends

No. 5 -- A new Nano

BMO analysts say Apple shrunk the nano iPod so small it may have bumped the diminutive shuffle out of the lineup.

No. 4 -- New, cheaper MacBook Air

Sleek, expensive and stripped of a disk drive, the original Air was a total dud. There's room for improvement.

No. 3 -- An iPad sales update

The last number was 3 million; that was two months and nine countries ago.

No. 2 -- A new iPod Touch with camera

Long overdue, Apple finally puts a camera on the Touch.

No. 1 -- The big one more thing ... A second camera on the iPod Touch

Hello FaceTime video chats on the iPod Touch.
