Get those holiday wish lists ready, the new iPhones are here!
It’s no secret by now what Apple is planning to unveil at their event in Cupertino, CA on September 10th, 2013 at 1PM ET/10AM PT. We expect a big emphasis on Apple’s new iOS 7 announced back in June, new updates on OSX Mavericks, and the Macbook Pro & iMac line. However the big ticket is, of course, the new iPhone 5S and the lower priced iPhone5C. This is great news for anyone living off ramen.
The Major Rumors About Apple’s iPhone Event:
- Release Date – iOS 6 was launched to the public 2 days prior to the launch of the iPhone5, so speculation has it the new iPhones will release on September 20th, 2013.
- iWatch – This is more of a hopeful item the tech world has been speculating on, but I am doubtful we will hear anything on this. We don’t even have a leak!
- TouchID - This touch sensor is a recent rumor that may be fact, as some have sourced a press release. This is meant to be a touch-based security feature for unlocking phones.
- 12-13 Megapixel Camera – They need to improve this to compete with the market trends.
The first sighting of the iPhone5S in the wild is brought to you by none other than Kim Kardashian in a selfie.
