Apple is expected to host its next iPhone launch event on September 10, if AllThingsD & # 39; s sources are to be believed. This will be a critical launch for Apple, which has seen its market share at decline in recent quarters with increased competition from Samsung. This time, Apple is expected to launch at least two variants of the iPhone – one a successor to the current iPhone 5, called the iPhone 5S and a less expensive iPhone, which is rumored to be called the iPhone 5C .
The iPhone 5S is said to have an improved camera and processor as usual, while rumors also point to a fingerprint scanner built into the screen and not the home button . Meanwhile, the iPhone 5C is expected to come in a variety of colors with a plastic case . Apple has typically lowered the prices of its older iPhones rather than launching a low-cost variant, which may change this year. The iPhone 5C is speculated to be priced around $ 300 unsubsidized and will target non-carrier subsidy markets like India.
As tradition, Apple will also unveil the final version of iOS 7, which it first showed at its annual WWDC event in June that sports fully updated icons and many UI adjustments . Apple also unveiled a new version of OS X caller Mavericks, but it will host another event aimed at Macs, as this event is usually exclusively dedicated to the iPhone.
This will be the first major launch event for Apple this year, since it has not hosted any iPad event in the time frame of March-April as it has done since the first iPad was launched in 2010. Apple is said to also to work with iWatch, a smartwatch accessory, but the chance that Apple will launch it at this event. However, we will not completely exclude it, as Apple is known to have some surprises hidden in its sleeve and may be CEO Tim Cook's "one more thing" moment.
Apple is not yet announcing the release date for the next iPhone.
