Not likely. We'll get an iOS 7 and OSX reveal today, and probably some MacBook updates, and that seems to be it. If an iPhone were going to be released today the news would have leaked by now.

Back in 2009 the 3GS arrived in June.

Maybe today will bring the 5S?
No. Mountain of reasons why not but just off the top of my head:

  • Why move from a September launch so it's the big new thing for Christmas?
  • If they did launch today they'd either need to stick with a June/July window for iPhone 6 or have a 15 month gap between phones, hardly ideal.
  • Several factors would make it far more likely for an A7 to be ready in September
  • iOS7 will need several months of testing before launch and Apple have historically released iPhone's with a new OS version.
  • If Apple are launching major changes to iOS and OS X today there's already a lot on the agenda. A new iPhone would get lost in the shuffle.

Of course there's always a chance it could come out but it's really unlikely from what we know right now.

Probably not, 5s and ios7 probably won't be available until this fall. To be honest, I'm not sure why they announce ios7 in June if they don't release it until the new iPhone conference months later.

I don't see it happening. The iPhone release date has shifted to the Autumn now.
Everyone forgets the only reason they shifted to a Fall release in 2011 was the because of the tsunami in Japan. They were forced to delay release. I see a pattern that they are trying to shift back to a summer release date. Not saying that it will be at WWDC. Just throwing it out there.

To give people something to look forward to. To give developers a chance to beta test and update their apps.
