A couple of weeks back we reported that Apple was rumoured to hold an event on September 10th where they would announce the next iPhone (s). Now this event has been confirmed by Apple as invitations to the event taking place at Apple’s Campus in Cupertino has been sent out to invited media.
While the message on the invitation is cryptic as always, saying; “This should brighten everyone’s day”, anything other than the announcement of two new iPhone’s would be a massive shock. We expect to see Apple take the stage to present both the new iPhone 5S and the budget model iPhone 5C, where the C is likely to stand for color, referring to the message on the invitation.
The consensus in the rumour market seems to be that the flagship iPhone 5S will retain largely the same form factor as the current iPhone 5, but with internal improvements, such as a chip, possible fingerprint sensor, a 12-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, and become available in an exclusive gold finish as well. The iPhone 5C however is rumoured to be going back to a plastic back cover available in a range of colours, not dissimilar to the latest iPod Touch 5th generation.
Besides the new iPhone announcement, expect to hear more about iOS 7 and its imminent launch. Plus, you never know if Apple has another secret or two up their sleeve. We will be back with more information on the day as Apple makes the official announcements.
