Apple iPhone 5S casing in graphite and the Apple iPad mini 2 back shell appear on video
As we mentioned on Thursday, you can distinguish the iPhone 5S from the iPhone 5 by looking for the pill shaped dual-flash on the former versus the round single LED flash on the latter. Another way to tell is to stare at the microphone opening next to the camera lens which is oval on the iPhone 5S and pill shaped on the iPhone 5.
This morning's video features a surprise visit from the back cover of the Apple iPad mini 2. Originally thought to be seeing the light of day along with the new iPhones on September 10th, those hopes are now dashed. The plastic on the top of the casing lets us know that this particular back is for a cellular enabled version of Apple's 7.9 inch tablet.
We're sure that many of you just can't wait for September 10th when Apple is expected to unveil the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C. First though, we do have a few Android models to introduce on September 4th including the Samsung Galaxy Note III, the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, and the Sony Xperia Z1. If smartphones and tablets are what puts the spring in your step every morning, the next few weeks are going to be amazing, so keep your eyes right here!

If not everyday, at least three times a week, there's a news regarding the back shell of the new iphone whether 5c or 5s. It's annoying because it tells all the same story. -_-

Wow as an American... It was hard to watch the first 00:50 of this video!
I know it's designed in Cali USA, but it's still hard to watch that Made in China.
Make more iphone at home please Apple, if only for Obama. You know, your pal.

I actually like the Graphite/Black color. Doesn't necessarily mean I'll switch my White i5 for it, but I do like it.

Wiat the extra 6 months and get the iPhone 6. This isnt worth the extra money nor the 2yr contact if you already have an iPhone 4s/5.

The Graphite looks really good. The Gold makes me cringe.

I really like that graphite color, black always seemed way to dark for me
