Apple Issues Invites For September 10 iPhone Event



Following weeks of anticipation, Apple today issued invites for a September 10 press event that will finally see the grand unveiling of its latest iPhones. The Cupertino company is expected to show off both the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C, and announce a public release date for iOS 7.

The iPhone 5S will be Apple’s flagship iPhone for the next 12 months, and we expect it to come with a faster processor, improved cameras, and possibly even a fingerprint scanner embedded within its home button. We’re also likely to see new color options, with champagne/gold and graphite joining the existing black and white versions.

As for the iPhone 5C, we already know exactly what that’s going to look like thanks to all the leaks we’ve enjoyed in recent months. Internally, you can expect it to be a lot like the iPhone 5, with the same 4-inch Retina display, and possibly the same processors and cameras, too. It will be made of plastic rather than aluminum, however, which will keep its price tag down.

Some reports have also claimed that we will see new iPads at the event, but the general consensus is that these are likely to get their own event later on — possibly in October. Apple won’t want to announce too many new devices on the same day, because it’ll mean launching them around the same time as well — and not many people can afford to upgrade both their iPhone and their iPad on the same day.

Apple’s event will be held in Cupertino at the company’s headquarters, where it announced the iPhone 4S in 2011, and it will begin at 10 a.m. PST.

    “This should brighten everyone’s day”

    Too obvious Timmy, clearly this is a blatantly obvious tip to the iPhone 5C or iPhone 5 Color.

    Does anyone else notice an hints to anything else? nothing screams iPad to me unfortunately. I was hopeful until now

    I guess it’s safe to assume that the CoM staff will once again find reason to dismiss, dishonor and defecate on everything Apple reveals at this event.

    After last year’s iPhone event podcast I refused to listen to another one because of the sadistic and sarcastic tone everyone seemed to share when discussing the details of the event. The entire podcast felt depressing and lackluster thanks to a crew of onlookers that felt the event lacked any sizzle or surprise.

    But when you make it your business to uncover every possible Apple secret you can get your hands on, you lose the privilege to critique the event as a non-event. You’ve already reported on 90% of what they intend to show so there’s really nothing left for Apple to reveal that can shock anyone that follows their business developments so closely.

    I love reading about new Apple details as much as the next guy but I do my best to look at the keynote with fresh eyes and ears. Otherwise we become so jaded that we can’t enjoy the moment because we feel so superior for knowing everything ahead of time.
