After months of rumours and speculation, Apple looks ready to announce its next iPhone. The company has begun to send out invites for a September 10th event, confirming the date that AllThingsD relayed last month.
What exactly will Apple show off at the event? All signs seem to point to the iPhone 5S, as well as the “budget iPhone”, currently known as the iPhone 5C. The iPhone 5S should be a fairly standard upgrade over the company’s existing model. It’s expected to retain the same design as the iPhone 5, but include a faster processor, improved camera, and possibly even a fingerprint scanner.
The iPhone 5C, meanwhile, has been rumoured to fill out the lower-end of the market. The handset will reportedly feature the same 4-inch Retina Display as the flagship iPhone, but eschew the aluminium unibody for a polycarbonate build to keep costs down. It’s also believed to use slower internal components, and the camera will most likely see a downgrade over current models too.
We’ll find out exactly what Apple has in store for the world on September 10th, and we’ll cover all the news from the event as it happens.
