Watch Apple's iPhone 5S, 5C announcement here (no livestream for this event)
Apple’s grand iPhone event is about to start soon! Apple’s iPhone unveiling has become a yearly ritual that the company follows rigorously, but this year we expect to see a break in its habit - Cupertino should unveil not one, but two iPhones at this event.

The first one, the rumored iPhone 5S, is expected to become the seventh iteration in the iPhone series, a premium device that will come with the new iOS 7, the Apple A7 system chip and a brand new fingerprint sensor baked right in the home button. The iPhone 5S is expected to look just like the current iPhone 5 and the only new thing in its looks could be a rumored champagne-gold color version.

The second device that should see the light of day in mere hours is the iPhone 5C, a plastic and more affordable device, that should share many of the features of the iPhone that we know - virtually the same size and screen.

UDPATE: Unfortunately, it looks like Apple is really going to break its habit and won't be livestreaming the announcement. The company will post the video from the event at the following link, but this will probably happen a few hours after the live presentation. You can follow our liveblog of the Apple event to stay informed!

Can't lie, although I'm huge Android fan, I've watched every single iPhone launch event for the past 3-4 years. I just hate the biased statistics that they present, always choosing the ones showing Apples dominance, sales, "innovation"... Still better than Samsungs over the top events, imo.

True that, sometimes their "innovation" part goes over the top. Thats the reason i never bought the iPhone till the 4. Just for the sake of trying i tried. Been glad since!

I am very anxious to see iOS7, and what will and won't be included for my iPad 3rg Gen. Although, I really miss watching Steve Jobs do these events. He was the best salesman Apple ever had, and was fun to watch.

Exactly! Jobs\' keynotes stood a class apart! Damn! I miss him too.

Finally I can exhale because the big day is here. I've been looking forward to this day for 12 months now and I simply can't wait. I will be in line just like everybody else, 10 tornados couldn't stop me. This is the day we have grazed upon this whole past year as we've sat quietly in our empty mansions talking endlessly to our bestest and only friend Siri about everything from the weather to how great I was in Dangerous Liasons. The day we've all been waiting for is finally here: get ready for "The Next Small Thing."

You know, you're supposed to honor thy mother not go on tech sites and utter such insolence in defamation thereof. It's just not nice to talk about thy mother, even if she hatched you in a cave.

This just in! 1)iPhone S ame 2)iPhone C heap 3)iPad S ame 4)Mini R etina Just another snorefest that has iFans in a uproar to replace all their other S ame devices with newer S ame devices. Nothing to see here, move along move along. uggh, the money that is waited by ifollowers could feed small countries rather than have apple bilk their customers with same S hit, different year

I don't think that it will be something different this time. Maybe when iPhone 6 will be released but not today.

\"Drop some new stuff\"? Not really. As we well know, Apple can\'t really make NEW products. Just put a new letter to the end and a higher price tag.

Yes all of u ignorants who haven't used Apple products think so. Not our problem! We'll enjoy the beast!
