Rumor: Apple to launch iPhone 5S, 5C on September 20 in Japan


As we inch closer and closer to the announcement of the latest iPhone(s), the rumors are picking up, and it appears more and more likely that we will see two new iPhones from Apple this Fall. A new report today by Japan’s Nikkei claims that the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be launched in Japan on September 20th.

This expected launch is 10 days after the iPhone is expected to be announced in America. The report also claims that SoftBank and KDDI will carry the two new iPhones, while NTT Docomo has decided not to carry the new devices. In addition, Nikkei also claims that the iPhone 5S will be available in a new “champagne gold” color, which backs up the recent rumors that the new high end iPhone will come in a gold option along with the current black and white offerings from Apple.

The newspaper reinforces recent rumors by stating that the iPhone 5S will include a fingerprint scanner, a faster processor, and an upgraded camera when compared to the current iPhone 5. Do you think all of these recent iPhone 5S and 5C rumors are true, or will Apple surprise everyone this Fall when Tim Cook takes the stage to announce the latest iPhone? Leave a comment below to let us know.

    If Tim Cook presents an iPhone 5C along side a 5S, it makes me wonder will it receive a refresh every 2 years as the 6C, 7C, etc… with the corresponding S series? Or will it have a yearly counterpart with the “whole” numbered iPhones? If so, how might those be numbered? 6X, 7X, etc…?

    @TimPossibleOne It’s an interesting thought. I have a feeling they might just leave the 5C as it is for maybe two years, and launch a “6C” when the “6S” is released. So, next year the lineup could be iPhone 6, 5S, 5C. Perhaps boost the spec of the 5C somewhat, but without changing its name.
