Apple is said to make a big announcement of its next generation iPhone - what most people are calling iPhone 5S for convenience sake on September 10! Moreover, possibly the less expensive iPhone - rumored to be called iPhone 5C is about to come as well. The news reports suggest that the special event date comes from trusted sources.
With the last year’s iPhone 5 announced on Wednesday, September 12 and shipped on Friday, September 21, 2012, and the iPhone 4 back in October 4, 2011 and shipped on Friday, October 14, Apple seems to be holding the same pattern as the last two years. The new devices will be launched the second Friday following the announcement, that'd put the release on Friday, September 20.
Moreover, based on previous patterns, iOS 7 Gold Master is expected to become available on September 10 as well, with Apple usually announcing final developer builds at the major events, with the general release projected for around Wednesday, September 18, to give some time for before the new product arrives.
However there is now single word on new iPads or iPad minis for this event. On the other hand, the last year's iPhone event did include new iPods, however, so we'll have to see on those. We have less than 6 weeks – the countdown is on! What are your expectations? Do not hesitate to voice up in the comments below!
