GADGET DESIGNER Apple has confirmed what we've all known for weeks, that it will launch its next generation iPhone(s) in San Francisco on 10 September.
Apple is giving little away with this year's invitations, which say simply, "This will brighten everyone's day" on a background filled with colourful bubbles. However, this is a likely reference to the multiple colour versions of the rumoured iPhone 5C, while the invitation's design also echoes the design changes of iOS 7.
While the Cupertino company is giving little away, we already know quite a lot about Apple's next generation smartphones, thanks to months worth of rumours and speculation and a number of leaks.
The more premium of the two handsets, which is likely to launch as the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6, reportedly will retain the same design as the present iPhone 5 while being made available in a new champagne colour. It reportedly will also feature an improved camera, a new processor, improved battery life and Apple's new iOS 7 operating system.
The iPhone 5C, which is set to launch as Apple's answer to the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, likely will have less impressive specifications, with the phone set to cost around £200. While we don't know much about its specifications, we do know that the handset will be available in multiple colours including blue, pink and lime green.
Following Apple's 10 September unveiling, the firm's new iPhones are expected to arrive on shelves on 20 September. We'll be covering Apple's announcement next week, so check back then for all the latest.
