iPhone Media Event All But Confirmed for September 10

iphone_5_black_whiteOver 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.

Let me get the trollish Android lot comments out of the way:
"Meh, the iPhone 5S is the same as the 5"

"The XXXXX phone had this feature 3 years ago"

"That's another thing they have copied from Android"

"Overpriced garbage"

"iSheep go baaa!"

"Where's the SD card slot and removable battery?"

"Lol it hasn't got quad core"

"Safari feels sna..." Oh wait, wrong bunch, sorry ;)

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 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.

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