Apple is hosting a special event today in San Francisco. Folks in the know are expecting the Cupertino-based company to debut its latest versions of the iPad and iPad mini.

In September, the tech giant launched the iPhone 5S and 5C -- spiffier and cheaper versions of the smartphone, respectively. Innovation is a lot about improving on pre-existing designs and technologies. In the last couple years, though, the only truly new products out of Apple have been just iterations of the same old thing. 

Has Apple lost its touch as the industry leader? Is the company being plagued by a crisis of innovation, which some people predicted after the passing of founder and guru Steve Jobs? What’s happening with the iWatch or Apple TV -- two brand new ideas that the company has been working on?
