There's too much smoke now for the heavily leaked "iPhone 5S" and "iPhone 5C" to not be the new iPhones Apple will unveil on September 10. We've seen blurry factory pics of parts and rear cases, but now we have a high definition video comparison of the bodies of the gold/champagne colored iPhone 5S and the plastic "budget" iPhone 5C.
As you can see in this video, the iPhone 5S and 5C will be exactly as the rumors have suggested. The iPhone 5S will carry the same external design as the iPhone 5, but will have a pill-shaped dual-LED flash for improved photography. Meanwhile, the iPhone 5C will be slightly thicker than the iPhone 5 and 5S, and will have what a durable plastic case.
Apple is expected to show off the iPhone 5C in several colors, and the 5S in the aforementioned gold/champagne hue. Another rumor that sprouted yesterday also reveals Apple could be toning down the "slate" aka black anodized aluminum in favor of a lighter gunmetal gray color. The change could be related to the fact that anodizing aluminum to black is quite difficult in terms of quality control. That, or Apple will add a standalone gunmetal gray to the lineup in addition to the gold model.
The new iPhones will come with the completely flattened and skeuomorphic-free iOS 7, which is rumored to become available for existing iOS devices on September 10, too.
Externally, the iPhone 5S will look identical to the 5S, save for the new color(s) and different LED flash on the rear, but internally, the rumored A7 processor could make everything run 31 percent faster. A fingerprint sensor and separate chip for motion tracking are two other rumored features said to be in the iPhone 5S.
By now, we know just about all there is to know about Apple's new iPhones. Will Tim Cook and company pull a Steve Jobs and reveal a "one more thing" at its unveil event? A new iPad and iPad mini with Retina display, maybe? All rumors suggest upgdated iPads won't make an appearance at the September 10 event, but will be announced at another separate fall event.
So, who's psyched for new iPhones? Switching to Android? Windows Phone? BlackBerry? Do new smartphones even excite people anymore?
