iPhone Media Event All But Confirmed for September 10
Over the weekend, AllThingsD reported that Apple will hold an iPhone-focused media event on September 10, introducing its next-generation iPhone 5S and perhaps a lower-cost "iPhone 5C".
AllThingsD has an excellent track record with such reports, suggesting that the event will indeed take place on that date, but in case there was any doubt, The Loop's Jim Dalrymple is now confirming the report with a simple "Yep" post.
Dalrymple is well connected at Apple and has on many occasions either confirmed or refuted other reports and rumors in simple one-word posts with 100% accuracy. Such reports are generally taken as coming directly from Apple but delivered through an unofficial channel.
Official media invitations for the introduction should appear roughly a week before the event.

I kinda wish my iPhone 5 would magically break so I would have a reason to get the 5S; I'm jonesing for the better camera & speed boost.
Still don't get why I can't save a Word File from an email on my iPhone without some third-party app.

Im calling it here:
It will have a pointless processor upgrade. The phone is already fast enough.
Dual LED - for those who care (could be ok)
12 MP Camera
Some proprietary hardware sensor that only the 5S will have (Finger print?)
Same screen, but they will boast that is has a higher contrast ratio "more colors".
Thats about it. Slight upgrade from the 5 realistically, and next year will be a larger phone.

I'm really looking forward to this. I'm ready for the iPhone 5S to replace the 4S.
I'll stick with white, I don't care for the "gold" at all.

Yep. That's what I wanted to hear.
I guess this is a direct response from Apple to the rumor regarding Apple board's concerns with regard to the pace of innovations. Expect big surprises at the event.
