What developers are saying about Apple's Sept. 10 launch event

Just like their customers, they're following the rumors. Just like their customers, they're watching and waiting to see what happens on Sept. 10. And just like their customers, developers already have plenty of opinions about what Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) may or may not launch.

While the Internet was buzzing with speculation about the iPhone 5S and 5C, iOS 7 and more, some wondered whether Apple's audience had set their expectations a little too high this time.

Among the many leaks prior to the announcement were pictures that reportedly showed a larger, revamped home button which some likened to the robot HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

For other developers, just the thought of iPhones in a wider range of colors was potential reason to celebrate.

The other hotly anticipated rumor involves a more biometric approach to using an iPhone, but some suspected it may still be a ways off.

And while various people on Twitter speculated about what the "S" or "C" could mean on the potential new iPhones, some developers thought it was time for Apple to rethink naming conventions entirely.

Of course, there's only so much speculation you can do before the real event, which is what most developers are waiting for the most.
