First of all, the release date for both phones is September 20.
We’re now just a few days away from Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. The iPhone 5S will most likely be released towards the end of September, alongside the iPhone 5C. The iPhone 5S, like the 4S, will be an incremental update (but with the addition of champagne- and graphite-colored variants), while the 5C will be a brand-new, plastic-chassis smartphone that comes in a variety of colors. Yes, at long last, it looks like Apple is finally kowtowing to the consumers who have been begging for a cheaper iPhone for years. The rumored iPhone 5S specs, except for the possibility of an integrated fingerprint scanner, aren’t all that exciting, however.
With two new iPhones, and perhaps two new iPads as well, it’s clear that the September 10 event will be massively significant, both for consumers and shareholders. With Samsungtaking control of the smartphone market over the last year, and its dominance of the tablet market being diminished by Google, Amazon, and Samsung, Apple will need to deliver something spectacular on September 10. We’ll be there, of course, and reporting it live.
