Apple sends out official invites to September 10th event
posted by Michael H. / Sep 03, 2013, 11:29 AM
various color choices that will be available for both the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C.The invites obviously don't specifically say what will be in the announcement for the event, and simply carries the tag line "This should brighten everyone's day." The assumption here is that is a reference to the brighter color scheme found in iOS 7, and possibly also a nod to the
The iPhone 5S has been rumored to feature the A7 processor, which could make the device about 31% faster than the iPhone 5. It has also been rumored to have a fingerprint scanner, and a 12 or 13MP camera with dual-LED flash. The iPhone 5C is expected to replace the iPhone 5 in the new lineup and likely won't offer much different from the iPhone 5 aside from a choice of colors.
The event will be held in San Francisco on the 10th at 10AM PT (1PM EST), and obviously we will bring you all of the news of the day as it happens. We're just one week away from finally having the end of iPhone rumors, and the start of more iPad rumors.

This statement is confusing: "The iPhone 5C is expected to replace the iPhone 5 in the new lineup and likely won't offer much different from the iPhone 5 aside from a choice of colors." ... WTF!

Sorry, meant to link to an old article that explained. The rumor is that rather than releasing the iPhone 5S and keeping the iPhone 5 on the market at a reduced price, the iPhone 5 will no longer be sold at all, and will be replaced with the 5C, which will essentially be an iPhone 5 with a different case.

Targeting the under 3 category with those baby colors. Good potential there, Apple. Good potential.

What 1980s Ronald McDonald ad campaign are you referring to? McDonald's hasn't run a commercial in the U.S. targeting children in many years. My father-in-law and his brothers are owner/operators of over a dozen McDonald's. Our coffee cups at home next to our coffee pot is a sleeve of McDonald's coffee cups. It's all I hear about at family gatherings. I know more about McDonald's than I ever wanted to know. I also know the only McDonald's that is still allowed by corporate to serve the original fried apple pies.

Oh, yes. A new color choice constitutes a major announcement - and I say that about all of the manufacturers.

Well, in addition to there being new color choices, it's assumed that the 5S will be announced as well, which features upgraded specs from last year's flagship. It's also possible we'll see new iPad models announced as well, although the jury's still out on that particular case. At any rate, this announcement includes more than just color choices. Hope this helps, ibap!

Apple started the idea of colors on computers called the iMac G3 in 1998 -- tht was almost 15 years ago. Practically no one complained when Nokia decided to borrow a page from Apple and use color on smartphones. So when Apple go backs to its roots, the haters then decided Apple copied Nokia.
