    Apple will unveil its next iPhone on September 10, reports AllThingsD, citing sources with knowledge of the event. Though the date of the announcement has been revealed, it is unclear whether the event will focus singularly on the upcoming iPhone 5S or if it will include Apple's rumored low-cost iPhone, possibly dubbed the iPhone "5C".

    The iPhone 5C, which is aimed at emerging markets, shares quite a few similarities with the iPhone 5. Prototype photos and leaked parts have depicted a similar shape and size, though the iPhone 5C has rounded edges, a slightly thicker form factor, and a polycarbonate shell that is offered in a range of colors.

    The most recent rumors have suggested a price tag of $490 for the device, which is in line with iPhone 4 pricing when carrier subsidies are taken into account.

    Apple's upcoming iPhone 5S is expected to feature a design that is similar to the iPhone 5, but with a number of improvements. It is rumored to include a fingerprint sensor, an upgraded 12-megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash, and iOS 7. It is likely that iOS 7 will become publicly available after the announcement or when the phone debuts.

    Though OS X Mavericks is also scheduled to be released in the fall, AllThingsD does not expect the software to be debuted at the September 10 iPhone event.

    Update: iMore's Rene Ritchie reports that his sources are also indicating a September 10 media event.

    Please no iPhone C... Not even the 3G with it's plastic shell was low enough. History teaches us some things.

    It's gotta' happen. Like it or not. Apple are losing millions of sales in Asia to Samsung & that number will only increase unless they act now.

    History does teach us something; that lower models get released all the time. iPod classic to iPod mini to iPod shuffle. Nothing new.

    Can't wait!

    I wouldn't get a iPhone 5C but I think it would be a good move for Apple and Apple shareholders :D

    I would upgrade my iPhone 5 to iPhone 5S only if the new phone has a fingerprint sensor.

    Calendar ... marked.

    How are these sources leaking all this info? Either an Apple insider or someone at the centre where it will be unveiled knows all this info…

    Then just bring back the 3G/3GS design. Much simpler and it worked. Oh, and those weren't cheap even though they were a one-piece plastic thing.

    Yes, Apple will charge you high even if plastic, doubt it will be next to sub-$200
