Apple will announce new Ringtone feature for iPhone users. AlleyInsider claims that their source says, “user will be able to make ringtones out of the songs they’ve already purchased from iTunes and Universal songs won’t be available for this feature. New line of iPods will also be introduced.” Since the iPhone was first announced in January there have been rumors that Apple will sell ringtones through its iTunes Store and iPhone user can add new ringtones. The other rumor which is making rounds is that Apple will add HD content and movie rental service to iTunes. The reason behind this rumor is the fact that Akamai, Apple's Internet content partner, has announced that it is adding HD video to its internet distribution offerings. Few more rumors added to the list of rumors for upcoming Apple event.

Rumor mill has been in full force since news about the Apple’s event went public. Everything has been speculated from iPod nano to Macbook Slim to iPhone nano. The latest rumor is about wireless iTunes store that will allow the music to be downloaded directly to the iPhone or upcoming wireless iPods (rumor). We will definitely see over the air download feature in iTunes but will it be released of September 5th, I am not at all sure about that. The only thing certain about the upcoming Apple’s event is that new iPods will be released.
