New iPhone coming September 10?

If you’ve been wondering when the next iPhone will be announced, there’s a new report out suggesting it may be revealed in early September.

AllThingsD is reporting that the next iPhone will be unveiled during an event on September 10.

Citing unnamed sources, the site says that’s the day Apple will pull the wraps off a new phone. Or possibly two?

Several rumours have been circulating since the last Apple iPhone came out – the iPhone 5.

Among the rumours is that Apple won’t just announce a new flagship phone, but a new low-cost budget version of the iPhone.

Rather than selling older models at discount prices, Apple is under pressure to offer a “new” model that can compete with inexpensive Android handsets.

There are also indications that the new, inexpensive iPhones could be colourful, just as you can get iPods in different, fun colours from blue to pink.

Photos have emerged online, showing “iPhone 5C” printed on plastic bits, adding a hint of credibility to the rumour.

But back to the main iPhone – which could possibly be called the iPhone 5S – rumours suggest it could feature a bigger screen and possibly a new colour: gold. 

Rumours aside, it’s what Apple will need to do as it seeks to stay competitive with big-screen phones from rivals such as Samsung and HTC.

The Samsung Galaxy S4’s screen measures in at a whopping 5 inches. Looking at an iPhone 5’s screen after using the Samsung Android phone is like riding a bike after driving a car. The visual experience is just not the same.

What feature would you like to see on the new Apple iPhone?
