Apple has officially announced that September 10th will be the date it launches its much anticipated new iPhone 5s. The event will take place at 10 a.m. Pacific time at the Apple Campus in Cupertino a week today and according to rumors will see the unveiling not only of new and improved smartphone but also for the low-cost iPhone, dubbed the 5C.
The 5S will reportedly come with a new and improved camera and in different colored options, while the iPhone 5C will feature a plastic backing but remain essentially the same technology-wise as the iPhone 5. The firm sent out invites today to the press featuring the phrase, 'This should brighten everyone's day' along with a graphic depiction of multi-colored dots, which has led some to suggest indicates the new iPhone 5 will come in a variety of colors.
Indeed, the 10th of September is due to be a bumper day for the Cupertino firm, with the announcement of iOS7, the first major overhaul of its mobile OS. And the other highlights of the show will most likely include more details about iTunes Radio, which should launch for U.S. users on September 20th, along with iOS7.
As next week's Apple iPhone event draws nearer, new images of what is rumoured to be the iPhone 5C - boxed up and ready to be shipped - have been leaked online. The photos, released by Chinese site iapps.im, show rows of the phones, with what is thought to be plastic casing, in pastel blue, pale yellow and powder pink. Apple is rumoured to be releasing the iPhone 5C as a cheaper alternative to its upcoming iPhone 5S model at an event on 10 September.
