Today is the day of yet another big announcement from Apple, and rumors are running wild: a new version of the iPhone? New iPad? Smart-watch? Reanimated corpse of Steve Jobs trashing his recent biopic?

Only two things are certain: Anything is possible, and you won't be able to afford any of it for at least a year. Luckily, Apple's existing products -- like the one in your back pocket -- get minor upgrades all the time -- each time a new and useful app hits the market. And in Miami, some are more suited to the locals than the rest.

From fighting traffic to dodging a DUI, here are the top ten phone apps for Miamians. Download, open, enjoy.

10. HelpBridge
In times of disaster -- like say, oh, a hurricane blasting through South Florida -- HelpBridge is here to, well, help. With hurricane season peaking through September, HelpBridge is an easy-to-use application connecting you to your loved ones after crisis. It allows you to alert for help or donate help.

You can sign in using your Microsoft, Facebook, or Twitter account; afterward, HelpBridge lets you choose emergency contacts straight from your phone. Your mom, girlfriend, or abuelita will be on call in case you find yourself stranded. You also have the option to donate via PayPal or register to donate goods or your volunteer assistance through the app. With plenty of opportunities to help or call for help, HelpBridge might be just what Miami needs. That is, if all the freaked-out meteorologists are right.

9. Copa Bridgestone
Football season just begun, but in Miami, the sport of fĂștbol is every bit as compelling. Miami-based software creator Rokk3r Labs built Copa Bridgestone Liberatadores for the 2013 Latin-American Cup. Users can receive push notifications for news updates, alerts, and view results for each team.

From Liga de Quito to overall champ Boca Juniors, support your favorites and share the madness directly from the app to your Facebook or Twitter for some good old-fashioned trash-talking. Until next season, amigos! GOAAAL!

What about the public transportation app -- that's an absolute must if you use Metrorail.
