Apple’s ‘iPhone 5S’ Event Rumoured to Take Place on September 10 [u]

According to a report by AllThingsD, Apple to set to kick off its highly anticipated iPhone event on September 10:

Apple is expected to unveil its next iPhone at a special event on Sept. 10, sources told AllThingsD.

Previous rumours have pegged the company to debut the iPhone 5S and also a lower-cost polycarbonate model dubbed the ‘iPhone 5C’.

AllThingsD also goes on to say OS X Mavericks will be released “in the coming weeks”, but will not be unveiled at the September 10 event. Apple stated at WWDC 2013 Mavericks and iOS 7 would be coming this fall:

Apple is also expected to formally launch the next version of Mac OS X, known as Mavericks, in the coming weeks, though that is not expected at the Sept. 10 event.

AllThingsD has a solid track record when it comes to sources related to the timing of Apple events. Stay tuned as other publications confirm or deny the date (i.e. a “yep” or “nope” from The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple).

Last year’s iPhone 5 media event took place on September 12, with invites being sent out a week prior. If history repeats itself invites should be sent out to members of the media on September 3.

Earlier today, purported mockups were published by Tinhte (via 9to5Mac) of the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S compared to the iPhone 5:


Update: According to Rene Ritchie from iMore, who has shown to be very well connected to Apple sources in the past, describes the cited date above as “And that sounds exactly right.” The slug for his post even says “yes-its-true-iphone-5s-event-is-september-10”. Nicely played.

Looks like we really should be circling September 10 on our calendars now.
