    Okay I am officially naming this new colorful iPhone 5c:

    The Candy Crush iPhone

    Because those are the colors and the design. The phone and iOS that remind you of

    Skittles

    True. But given the expected second model, it would allow Apple to release new models twice a year rather than once a year as they have been doing. They could release "new" technology in the flagship model in the Spring and then push that tech to the "C" model in the Fall.

    Should we be reading anything into the fact this is being held at Apple headquarters and not some place bigger?

    The Loop says that "Apple is widely expected to unveil *a* new phone". Of course I'm sure he has to be more cagey than most whether he knows more about this or not.

    But then they'd be going well over a year without a new flagship model. Can Apple really afford to do that? If all we get on Sept 10 is the iPhone 5 with a new color and these low cost phones the stock will tank big time.

    Usually means it won't be a long event. As I mentioned above, the iPhone 5C, iPhone 5 in new colors (Champagne Gold and Graphite), and a release date for iOS 7; Friday, Sept 13th.


     


    Personally, I'm most excited about getting iOS 7!!!

    An super bright display for the iPhone 5S ?


    So bright i and people around me will not see any dimm-y AMOLEDS ?


    So bright that sun will get unreadable (not the display) ?


    So bright it will be visible from the other end of the galaxy (mega Z ultra infinite with a billion inch screen) ?


    So bright that iPhone 5 will look like a... ahm actually iPhone 5 is already one of the brightest smartphones around.. maybe its just about the brightness of the flash :)

    I would say: 16GB iPhone 5C; 32GB iPhone 5; 32, 64 and 128GB iPhone 5S.


     


    8GB it's too little

    I disagree, the market isn't so much interested in a new flagship model as they are a lower cost model. New colors and a new OS will hold over the flagship model for a little while longer. Besides everyone will be too busy talking about the new iPhone model.


     


    I also think with the introduction of the next flagship model, Apple will unveil their take on "wearables" and they currently aren't ready for it.

    My speculation:
    5C 8GB $0 contract, $349 unlocked
    5C 16GB $99 contract, $429 unlocked
    5C 32GB $199 contract, $529 unlocked

    5S 32GB $249 contract
    5S 64GB $349 contract
    5S 128GB $449 contract

    No...  What brightens?  A flashlight!  And didn't Craig Federighi highlight the flashlight option, several times, in the new iOS 7 redesign of the quick access to the pull up settings options pane! image  Refresh your memory.

    But there's nothing really to talk about. Most likely it will be an iPhone 5 in a colored plastic body. The only thing people will be talking about is price (either complaining its too expensive or surprised its cheaper than they thought).

    I believe the circles are cyan, magenta and yellow, and then red, green, blue.  Those are of course the standard primary colors for digital photo and printing purposes.


     


    The one color that is not standard?  The two "gold" circles.


     


    Now what could that possibly mean??

    Nothing about the refreshed MacBook Pros with Haswell?

    No.  It makes no sense to keep making the iPhone 5 if there is a 5c

    I just meant maybe a smaller venue plus Dalrymples "a" new phone might equal just the 5c announced on the 10th. Just trying to read tea leaves I guess. I can't wait for the 5s personally, so maybe I'm just trying to be emotionally prepared if it does come out later :D

    5S 32GB $249 contract
    5S 64GB $349 contract
    5S 128GB $449 contract

    I could see this being the exact lineup except no 8gb version and just 16 @ $0 and 32 @ $99. I wouldn't be surprised to see $249 for 32gb S- but also wouldn't be shocked to see them keep it at $199.

    Can't wait!

    I already hate that "quick access" panel and I haven't even used it yet.  The "flashlight" option in particular is idiotic.

    Sorry I think you're mistaken if you think Apple can wait until next spring for a new flagship phone. And why would anyone coming off a 2 year contract upgrade to the 5 when it would be pretty much guaranteed the 6 is around the corner in the spring. 5 sales would tank and I doubt these colored phones would make up for it.
