According to AllThingsD., “Apple is expected to unveil its next iPhone at a special event on Sept. 10.
The company will debut a new lower-cost iPhone alongside whatever update it has in store for the current iPhone 5.”
Analysts have said the ” next iPhone, which some call the iPhone 5S, will look nearly identical to the current iPhone 5. However, it will likely have improved internal components like a faster processor and better camera, and may be Apple embed a fingerprint sensor into the next iPhone’s home button”.
” A few weeks ago, developers discovered code in Apple’s forthcoming update to the iPhone operating system, iOS 7, that referred to a “Biometric Kit.” That’s the biggest bit of evidence we’ve had so far that Apple plans to include a fingerprint sensor in the iPhone 5S. In theory, the fingerprint sensor would allow you to unlock your phone without a regular four-digit passcode’, Yahoo News said.”Finally, there’s still a lot of chatter that Apple will introduce a cheaper iPhone model with a plastic shell. The so-called iPhone 5C will be sold for significantly less than the new iPhone and could help Apple gain more share in the low-end of the smartphone market. Some have said the plastic iPhone will be available in a variety of colors.”
