    When can we expect reviews of the iPhone 5s (and 5c) to start appearing? I assume reviewers have review models at this stage but are under embargo to not publish any reviews before a certain date. Does anyone have an idea what that date is?

    The 5C is the same as the 5 with a plastic case. All you need to do is read the reviews on the 5 because they are the same. The 5s is different and the reviews should be interesting.

    Not really - will need to have full tests of the nw 5C battery, review of the feel of the phone, review of the iOS custom wallpaers, front facing camera, benchmark for both phones (to see if 5S performance is significantly above 5/5C, etc)

    Reviews should appear Wednesday evening

    Thanks. Yep, the 5s is the one I'm really interested in, especially the camera. While waiting for the reviews, I enjoyed reading these:

    Fifty Foot Shadows: Five S

    Great, can hardly wait. :)

    Will that be for both models and —*out of curiosity — why Wednesday evening?

    I think it will be today. Why?

    2012 - iPhone 5

    9/18 at 9pm - embargo lifted and reviews hit.

    9/21 - iPhone 5 launch

    2013 - iPhone 5S

    Sept 17 - embargo lifts, reviews lift.

    Sept 20 - iPhone 5S launch

    This is just a guess, but Apple is very methodical with their announcements usually.
