Get ready because it’s that time of year again. No, not the end of summer or returning of school, but time for a new iPhone. Over the past few years Apple has held events in September to announce their newest iPhone. In 2011 it was for the 4S and last year it was for the 5. If these latest reports from All Things D are true (and they have been in the past) then mark down September 10th as that will apparently be the day that Apple reveals their next iPhone, the iPhone 5S/6.
Now what exactly will be in the next iPhone is anyone’s guess at this point. Most expect the next iPhone to be faster and have a better camera than the iPhone 5, but beyond that the rumors are really all over the place– from a fingerprint sensor, to a bigger screen to more colors beyond black and white. And of course there are a lot of rumors on if the name of this next iPhone will be the iPhone 5S or if it will have a big enough upgrade to go straight to iPhone 6.
The rumored, more colorful, iPhone 5C
On top of all that there is also a lot of talk about Apple coming out with a new plastic, cheaper and more colorful iPhone called the “iPhone 5C” in addition to the new iPhone 5S/6. The iPhone 5C is said to have an 8-megapixel camera, 4-inch Retina Display and cost $300-$400 without a contract (by comparison the 16 GB iPhone 5 starts at $650 without a contract, which would mean that this new iPhone would most likely be free or at the most $100 with a new 2-year contract). We’re sure that the rumors on both of these iPhones will only get crazier as we get closer to September 10th and we’ll make sure to keep you updated. One thing we do expect any new iPhone to have however is iOS 7, the next, redesigned version of iOS.
So get ready. The countdown to the next iPhone begins now.
