This has not even been publicly announced yet, but as readers of Home Brew Audio, you and I get special pre-announcement notice. How cool is that?
So what are these new items?
Zynaptiq UNCHIRP Plug-in Electronic Download – (Codec Artifact Removal & Transient Retrieval)
I can’t wait to try this! You know that weird swirly sound you sometimes get after running a noise-reduction effect on audio? If you’ve done much noise reduction/removal, then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Other terms for this unpleasant side-effect of noise reduction are: “that under-water sound,” “warbling,” or “the tweeties.” Well this new product – now available to you before the general public (it’s August 28th, 2014 today) – suppresses those after-effect high-frequency sounds, as well as several other things like reducing musical noise, fix transient smearing, and restoring lost high frequencies, all of which can happen during “lossy” audio conversion that reduces sound quality to make it more convenient to stream on services like Spotify and Pandora.

Zoom iQ6 Stereo X/Y Microphone for iOS Devices with Lightning Connector
This is a stereo microphone that plugs into devices that have Lightning Connectors, namely iOS devices like the iPhone (5 and 5S) and iPad (anything newer than the iPad 2, such as the iPad Mini or the iPad 4th generation). These mics are the same ones used on the Zoom H4N handheld digital audio recorder.

UPDATE: The Zoom iQ6 is available now!
