    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'm really curious to see the differences between the iPhone 5S and the mid-range iPhone.

    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.

    I'm placing all bets that the "C" in 5C stands for Core

    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.

    Sell it while the word has not spread yet on eBay and you could get back most of what you have paid ;)

    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.

    Going by last year. If we expect GM (GoldMaster) on Sept 10 which is the iPhone release date. Give it another 7 days and you got Sept 17 as iOS 7 Public Release.

    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.
