As the technology field grows more crowded, can Apple still create dazzling, must-have products?

The stakes are high for both the iconic company and for CEO Tim Cook at today's Apple conference to unveil the company's new products.

The gathering will showcase Cook's vision for Apple's future.

Cook has been at the helm for three years, since the death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, but the technology landscape has changed profoundly in that time, with some industry observers saying that Apple has lagged behind companies like Samsung and Google in innovation.

Edmund Lee, the managing editor of Recode, joins Here & Now's Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson to discuss what to expect.
