Apple Day is almost here, and it's sure to come with a batch of tech presents. Wee've even got a pretty good idea of what they'll be. New iPhones, new colours, iOS 7 updates. Here's everything you can expect to see tomorrow.
Sure, year two of an iPhone design cycle typically means an incrementally improved upon device, but it could be a bigger launch than anticipated. Here's what we expect to see out of Apple's new flagship.
On September 10th, we'll know if Cupertino's next big thing really is the long-fabled "budget iPhone". For the moment, it's still anyone's guess, but here's everything we think we know about the elusive iPhone 5c.
Full disclosure: We've been seeing the gold iPhone rumours for weeks now, but have largely been brushing them aside. Fake Apple rumours are as easy to come by as tangled EarPod cords this close to a new product launch, and this one in particular seemed too outlandish too... tacky. But gold iPhone reports have reached that saturation point — even AllThingsD is confirming — where they can't be ignored anymore. Especially considering how much sense it all makes.
While it seems pretty certain that the next iPhone will come with a fingerprint scanner, what it will look like remains an open question. A "silver ring" around the home button (see below) is the prevailing theory; our friend Martin Hajek has taken a closer look at what that might mean in practice.
The maker of Apple's Siri tech claims iOS 7 is now said to be launching early next month alongside the updated iPhones. Here's everything you need to know about the new-look OS.
