Apple to unveil new iPhone on September 10th, report says

ios7-iphone
It’s inevitable that Apple will release a new iPhone. The company has been quiet on details, but we’ll potentially see an evolution from the iPhone 5 to the ’5S’ with improved specs and a similar design. Apple is rumoured to launch an entry-level device, perhaps called the 5C, with an all plastic design.

According to AllThingsD, “Apple is expected to unveil its next iPhone at a special event on Sept. 10.” This date is 1-month from now and is also when we can expect a firm release date for iOS 7.

    Just get an Android. Much better OS and affordable.

    • Sterling Stewart

      Agreed….

    • sid32

      But the new iPhone will have a coloured back!

    • Nathaniel James

      So will the Moto X. Your point is invalid. :)

    • sid32

      I have to explain a Simpsons joke on the internet? What is the world coming too?

    • Bri

      much better os? how? I’m an android user but when people make stupid comments like that it’s hard to just pass by.

    • Zomby2D

      More open, more flexible and customizable. Able to adapt to a wide variety of devices. Not the stale UI iOS have had for the last 5 years with little to no change. Not dependent on a crappy desktop software like iTunes. The list goes on…

    • Bri

      I know android has its advantages and same with iOS. The two OS’s are at a stage where one is not better than the other. It’s about preferences.

  • Guest

    Just get an Android. Much better OS and more affordable.

  • JB

    Just buy an android or a BB10 phone….they’re far superior then this apple crap. IOS is so stale, dont let the marketing fool you people.

    • southerndinner

      Haha android sure but BB10 is trash

    • Jesse Pentecost

      hahah BB10 sure but android is bloated garbage

    • Nathaniel James

      You’re no longer allowed to comment.

    • jnavon

      BB10 ? Are you kidding me ?

    • spammenotdisqus

      iOS is a toilet.

  • whateverman

    lol ipoop

    • Sterling Stewart

      ipoooooooooooooooopppppppppppppppp

  • └̠[Ỹầşħ]┐̄

    id love to see this glitz and glamour of how people get fooled by their marketing. Nexus 4 is the best bang for buck. Outright…Any network you want!

  • rocky

    There is nothing wrong with Apple or their phones or OS ! Its just what you prefer, and having used all extensively I can say I much prefer the ipone as a phone along with the OS that goes with it ! If you Havn’t tried all you really Cannot comment otherwise! Period!!!!!!!

    • Reagan Podelec

      Had both. Apple is still crap.

    • Matt

      To you it’s crap. To me Android is crap. Oh, and before you ask, yes, I owned the unlocked Nexus S for months before realizing that I didn’t care for the design of the phone or the OS.

    • Reagan Podelec

      To most of the natural born world it is crap. Nexus S is almost four years old. So the phone was never cutting edge, and I also thought it was crap. IPhone and apple will always be closed minded and crappy. Considering over 60 percent of the market share is android now, I’m sure there are reasons people are realizing apple is crap. Boring and not time with what users really desire from as Mobile os.

    • Bri

      iphone 4 was announced around the same time and I think many people would prefer iphone4 over nexus s.. even ask yourself.

    • Reagan Podelec

      Wouldn’t have bought either. Went the HTC route first, then Samsung and iPhone 4 s. Samsung has so far has delivered. Tried a nexus 4, for about three months, then bought an iPhone 5 which didn’t live up to anything that the 4 s couldn’t deliver , then finally settled with a factory build s3, and a galaxy s2x with cyanogen mod.

    • Matt

      No, 60% of the market is Android because the OS is on everything from $150 phones for third world countries to $700 phones for the North American and European markets. When you’ve got so many companies manufacturing hundreds of different Android phones they’re bound to get into more hands than the a premium-priced phone offered by one company.

    • Reagan Podelec

      Well maybe apple, should diversifying itself rather than being a closed ecosystem with limited options and features. The are other alternative os systems available, manufactures choose to use android because of its customizable interface, and openness to be manipulated freely (amazon Kindle series). Also it offers a secure product for stability.

      Is there something wrong with third world cultures using 150 dollar powered android phones. You mention it like it’s a disgrace? Not everyone can afford Samsung r&d overpriced apple iPhone.

    • Matt

      They should diversify because you think they should? Well don’t you think highly of yourself?

      By the way you’re the one who used the word “disgrace,” not me.

    • Reagan Podelec

      I don’t think highly of myself, what are you on? That’s funny! It would be good for their business to out source hardware other than their already outsourced hardware, think of the irony there.

      I used the word disgrace, because of your childish comment. You could have easily phrased as entry level 150 dollar smartphones.

    • spammenotdisqus

      ‘Extensively’ generally means more than holding it. Obviously you didn’t try to share a photo once you take it directly to 3rd party apps, Google Maps integration, Google Now, the Lumia 1020′s camera, or the joy of swiping away notifications instead of 1) hitting a little ‘X” then 2) having no choice but to clear all notifications from that app at once. WTF is that

  • protaginets

    I used Android and for me it was awful. As soon as I started to customize my phone the battery life went into the toilet and me phone started crashing. I can live with the minor limitations of iOS vs an unstable and unsafe OS like Android.

    • Darth Paton

      I call BS. This is the same argument people have been making about Android since it was in beta. I have yet to experience more than a couple crashes on my Nexus 4 since it first came out. I’m not gonna say the iPhone is a bad choice or a bad phone, but it isn’t right to characterize Android as an unstable POS.

    • Rich

      Ah, the whole “I experienced something this way or that” and therefore that’s how it must be for everyone else.

      There are a lot of crappy and unstable Android devices out there. I blame it more-so on so many variations of hardware than anything though.

    • Darth Paton

      And I don’t mean to say there aren’t handsets like that out there, but I don’t think its fair to characterize the whole OS based on those bad devices you may have had. Otherwise you’re just being hypocrite

    • protaginets

      I am going say that my experience was awful with Android. I will also say the US government has posted warnings about malware for Android. I haven’t seen the same for iOS.

    • PAmos

      Really? The same US govt that certified an Android handset for dept. use BEFORE iOS got its clearance? That US govt? Let’s face facts that if you root your device and d/l apps from un-verifiable sources you can run into issues. This would be no different than someone that jailbreaks their iPhone and then side loads apps.

    • Bri

      I dunno I do think iOS is more stable. I’m also an android user and I think android is more fun to use but iOS is almost bugfree from my experience. Plus my Nexus 4 has very bad connectivity issue.. I got a replacement and still has the issue.

    • Darth Paton

      I have a Nexus 4, iPhone 4, and a Lumia 920. They all have their merits and I enjoy using all of them. It’s stupid to exclude yourself to one OS when there are so many cool features in all of them. Still haven’t tried a BB10 but I hope to soon!

    • Bri

      I’m just not as rich as you I guess…

    • guest

      your iOS was still good after customization? ROFL

    • gtbarry

      “As soon as I started to customize my phone the battery life went into the toilet and me phone started crashing”…..sounds like YOU caused it. Not Android.

    • Matt

      I thought being able to customize the phone and tailor it to your liking is something that Android fans love to remind iOS users of. If the guy can’t install a few widgets and change a few settings without the battery life going to sh*t it’s not his fault. He was only doing what the OS allowed and encouraged him to do…

    • PAmos

      Nice strawman argument. For all you know he could have rooted the phone and then loaded an app to allow him to overclock it beyond what it was capable of. Installing widgets and tweaking settings that Google exposes will not cause it to become unstable.

    • Matt

      And for all you know he didn’t root the phone. Your assumptions are no more right than mine.

    • PAmos

      Actually I didn’t make any assumptions, all I did was call out that your statements weren’t based on facts provided by the OP, but rather nothing more than a wild guess at what they meant by “customize”.

    • gtbarry

      Your sins are not sanitized for you. With freedom comes choice. He made bad choices – that’s on him. I have made customization choices and not had the same problems.You are responsible for your actions.

    • Matt

      Oh, you made customization choices and your phone works fine? Well I’m terribly sorry. Clearly if you’ve done it and it turned out fine on your phone then everyone else who does the same must never have a problem. Thank you so much for clearing that up for me. lol

    • PAmos

      So you admit to “customizing” your phone and THEN it became unstable, yet you claim it must be the OS since it can’t possibly be what YOU did.

  • Matt

    As much as many of the people who post on here prefer Android, there is a LARGE segment of the population that finds Android extremely confusing. While iOS doesn’t provide the customizability of Android, it’s many times easier to use out of the box and has the greatest app support due to it’s user base. Suggesting Android to a first-time smartphone user is not always the best choice. I’d much rather suggest iOS (and to a lesser extent, Windows phone).

    • BB BB

      That’s not true my own mom has an android phone and an iPad and prefers her Nexus phone and Android 4.3 over iOS 6. Android is easier to use, settings are adjusted within the app itself not buried in the control panel, everything on android integrates well with the cloud and is accessible online from Windows or a Mac.

    • Ryan

      I have an Android tablet (Nexus 7) and Windows Phone (Lumia 520), and was recently given an iPhone 4S to play around with for a week.

      Out of the three I found the iPhone/iOS the more confusing. Android everything was easy to do and setup. Even my WP8 was easier to setup and adjust things on.

      After that week I grew to appreciate Windows Phone more.

    • PAmos

      My kids that are 9 & 7 are more than willing to offer you lessons on using an Android device if you find it so confusing. If you’re an Apple fan, good for you. Enjoy your choice but PLEASE stop posting bs claims based on your obviously biased views. I’ve owned both and Android is no more difficult to use “out of the box” than an iOS device. Now if you want to dive in and “tweak” the device then you should be more than a novice user.

  • Justin

    I have an Android phone… however, I feel iOS is slightly better than Android. Hey.. its just my 2 cents!!

    • spammenotdisqus

      iOS is trash.

  • hoo dat

    Say hello to the new iOS, exactly the same as the old iOS!

    • hoo dat

      In response to my own reply I’ve got to say I have never been less excited about an OS launch/refresh than I have about iOS7. Sorry, but so far the Beta version is so underwhelming.

  • Nadefrenzy

    Hopefully they come out with a new iPad mini then or soon.

      Around these parts, Android is king and Wind Mobile is the best. All their competitors are inferior.

      That’s mobilesyrup for you.

  • Radhakrishnan

    Apple, understand that you have 3 assets: iOS / App Store / Hardware

    Of all these three, the greatest value is App Store and then iOS and then lowest is Hardware.

    You have done great job in all three. However, as you are the sole manufacturer of your hardware, you cannot complete with other hardware vendors. Your current approach doing all three yourself is not sustainable.Your market-share is going down rapidly and will become zero in couple of years. That is your hardware sales becomes zero and with that, you would have effectively killed iOS and App Store which are of great value to you instead of hardware division.

    So, simply give-up hardware division and start licensing iOS to number of OEMs. People get iOS & App Store with almost all form-factors and price points. iOS sales increases drastically. Though, you don’t get back royalties as much as your current margins, but this is sustainable approach and your income from App Store increases. With this approach you don’t worry on hardware design/manufacturing/supply-issues, etc and concentrate on iOS and App Store. At-least iOS and App Store live long. With your current approach, all three will die soon and you will become as next Blackberry as this guy was also trying to do all himself and failed.

    - Profit from hardware will become 0

    - Profit from iOS (royalty) will increase as more form-factors and price-points become available

    - Profit from App Store will increase as more and more people get iOS phones

    The problem is NOT with lack of innovation. You cannot keep innovating forever in a smartphone. Understand that once it reaches a matured stage, you just need to keep it competitive with small, small changes.

    Had Steve Jobs licensed the iOS to number of OEMs and allowed them to produce all kinds of phones running iOS, then iOS would have been in a commanding position now with no traces of other smartphone OSes including Android. Royalties from iOS and sales from App Store would have been in billions.

    Very strange to believe that Steve Jobs failed second time as well…

    • Neil Nimkar

      1.) Apples profits are mostly from hardware, not software (or services)
      2.) Apple sales are going UP. Market share does not equal sales or profits

      This post makes zero sense

    • Sweet

      Growth is in software and services, not in hardware. Samsung said something similar several months ago, which is why they’re looking to create their own ecosystem.

    • Neil Nimkar

      Ummm.. hardware sales ARE growing, just at a slower rate then previously. Also, hardware revenues are so far ahead of software and services that to say Apple should get out of hardware is jusy silly.

      So you have a company with industry leading profits on hardware that are growing, and the op suggested scraping hardware. Sounds crazy to me.

    • Sweet

      I was referring to future growth. Hardware margins and growth in the industry are dropping and your statement “..just at a slower rate than previously.” backs that up as does Samsung’s statement during an earnings report several months ago.

      I realize Apple is making lots of money on their hardware, but their margins on their hardware has come down as has their growth rate. However, that could all change if/when they release a “budget” iPhone (the much-rumoured iPhone 5C).

      I agree that it’s ridiculous to suggest that Apple get out of the hardware biz.

    • IMtehUber1337

      Because they produce the hardware and the software, you’ll never have a device that is too slow for the software. Same way with their computers where you’ll never upgrade to a future install of OSX that doesn’t work will with the computer you have because it will have been built for that machine. I’ve heard tons of people complain about bad android builds because those were built specifically for their phones. Apple will NEVER have that problem and I like that.

    • somedoobsandbeer

      Dude, get a clue. You need one. Where did you get this info from? The inquirer or just some drugs you’re on?

  • Pantone

    Apple has the best app support and the ease of itunes is great. Blackberry 10 actually has the best all around OS and android typically has the best hardware to price ratio. I sell all of these phones and have used them extensively.

    For the record I own the S3 and my wife owns the 4S…..I really love the Q10, but it is highly overpriced.

    • Zomby2D

      Did you seriously just put “ease” and “iTunes” in the same sentence? The nightmare that is iTunes is the one thing that kept me away from iProducts even before there were competitive alternative. I much preferred the limitations of my Windows Mobile phone (pre-iPhone model) than having to deal with that bloated POS.

    • southerndinner

      lol BB10 isn’t even in the top 3 for operating systems let alone being the best

    • pnikki9

      IOS 7 became popular because of its simplistic operation. Dumby proof if you will. Ios7 will change all that as familiar operations become different to the masses. Couple that with a outdated style and it makes that phone unattractive. Best move I made is going android and when all the viruses start, than going to bb10. Apple to huge to die. But I’d sell stock if I had any

    • MXH070

      Once again a EMPTY statement with ZERO facts to back the dimwitted statement. I’m curious do you live to comment negatively about BlackBerry in every and any posts even if it has nothing to do with BlackBerry. I’m guessing that you are you a paid SHILL to bash BlackBerry which is more than likely the case as a normal person has better things to do than troll tech sites to bash product they have never used or never intend to purchase.

      Now for ios7 I curious to see what revolutionary additions apple added or is it just ios6 refreshed with a new skin?. Guess we’ll have to wait and see if cook continues to drive apple in to the ground or has come up with a new sold product that jobs would have given his stamp of approval.

    • Sweet

      They’ll most-likely introduce fingerprint authentication. But that’s about it.

      BTW, Apple’s board of directors has allegedly gotten on Cook’s case recently, telling him to increase the rate of innovation. Hopefully he’ll listen.

    • pnikki9

      They added an amazing new feature to ios 7 …the number 7 …. That alone has that ability to rip people off with the same crap….lmfao….

    • pnikki9

      Bb10 is the most secure platform around… Takes a bit of getting used to though. I own a s4 and love it. Just waiting till the hacks infiltrate it to move on. Lol. Apple designed and marketed the iPhone as american as apple pie, and people buy the same phone year after year… Strange but good job apple!

    • gtbarry

      “ease of itunes” LOL

  • Sak Hus

    iphone home forever

  • tushar

    BB10 total money waste better buy Nokia ASAHA

  • bill

    I can’t believe how many young people who work for minimum wage keep wanting to buy the latest apple phone. They need their job just to pay for their phone bill.

    The best phone in my opinion is a cheaper older model android. When you accidently drop it into the toilet, just buy another one…

    • Matt

      What are you, 80?

  • Lukeiphone

    I have an S4 and iPhone 5. I really like my S4, but occasional errors and glitches are there. Infact, graphic intensive games are still laggy on my S4 (quadcore 1.9Ghz) but ALL the apps, I repeat all the apps run perfectly fine with NO LAGS on iPhone 5.
    I updated the iPhone to Beta 4 iOS 7 and battery life is amazing! I can last all day without juice packs on normal – heavy use.
    So, that being said, I am sticking to iPhone instead of android. Yes, I do want a bigger screen, but apart from that I want more stability and quality apps.

    • Lukeiphone

      Also, to add – I want my data to be secure. iPhone automatically backs everything on iCloud. Third party backup applications on my S4 are not doing that job so well. Overall, I am finding iPhone to be more secure.

  • samic2046

    iOS7? You call that “training wheels for Android” iOS7?

  • Thomas

    Funny how fandroids spend their time trashing Apple while “iSheep” don’t even bother doing the same on Android announcements. If anything, its other fandroids trashing competing manufacturers because their phones are too “plasticky” or “don’t have a removable battery, 6GB of RAM and 3 micro SD slots”.

    • Matt

      You can’t win with them. lol

  • Sweet

    He got the S3. It’s his wife who got the iPhone.

  • spammenotdisqus

    LOL mad that iOS sucks? Sorry I can’t help you… you’ll have to go out and buy a new phone yourself.
