Apple Rumored To Unveil Next iPhone On September 10th

ios7-635

Apple fans take note, the ever knowledgeable AllThingsD has noted that Apple will launch the next-gen iPhone on Tuesday, September 10th. Citing anonymous sources, the site is generally one of the most reliable sources for Apple-related events.

“Apple is expected to unveil its next iPhone at a special event on Sept. 10, sources told AllThingsD. The launch comes at an important time for Apple, which continues to make a lot of money from the iPhone but has seen its global market share dip amid a growing wave of lower-cost Android devices as well as an intense battle with archrival Samsung.”

The report does match rumors that Apple would unveil their next-gen iPhone and a possible low-cost model entry. The launch is one of the most important for Apple in recent memory as it faces increasing competition from the Android community.

Apple has favored Tuesday launches in the past which makes this rumor all the more likely. As for the event itself, actual reports on what to expect in the next iPhone model are pretty scarce, though it’s safe to assume a new/faster processor, improved camera and a possible fingerprint sensor and of course the formal introduction of iOS 7. Plenty of reports have surfaced in recent months that Apple will introduce a low-cost competitor and given T-Mobile’s penchant for mid-range devices, it’s worth considering that T-Mobile could carry both iPhone models if rumors pan out.

Why the sudden interest in the next-gen iPhone launch? Well, T-Mobile’s recent quarterly statement indicated the company sold around 900,000 iPhone models though company execs won’t attribute any particular smartphone with the company’s first subscriber growth in years. Let’s hope T-Mobile picks up any new iPhone models right from the get go and give customers both current and potential all the possible options they could want.

    If T-Mobile doesn’t get the new iPhone at the same time as everyone else that’s a missed opportunity.

    • http://twitter.com/SParKlngCyaNide SparklingCyanide

      Of course T-Mobile will carry it at the same launch time, why wouldn’t they? Every time there’s an iPhone launch, it’s launched on all carriers who’ve had it in the past at the same time.

      • JBLmobileG1

        All the other carriers were also willing to sell the farm to carry it too. Hopefully T-Mobile doesn’t let Apple rape them for everything they have because I’d rather have a full 4G/HSPA+ network than a spotted incomplete one only so we can carry a phone. After all… what’s good about having a nice phone if you don’t have a good reliable network to use it on?

        • JBLmobileG1

          On an added note. Look at Sprint…. I bet they are still paying off Apple for their iPhone. Giving Apple every last drop of cash they have while their network rotts away. I know people who currently have and jihad Sprint for awhile and they actually told me that their service has become worse. Probably because they don’t have the money for its up keeping.

        • Luis Espinal

          I think it’s pretty ridiculous that Sprint is even in the running for anything. Everyone I know that has Sprint tells me the same thing, the network is getting worse! Before, those who were on Sprint used to tell me that even though the data speeds were crap the voice was excellent, now even that is gone. So, what is the point of being Sprint!!

        • Dakota

          I never understand then why they have more customers than Tmobile. Their network must be working in some places

        • http://dualshockers.com Joel Taveras

          Customers pay for the phone (hence simple choice plans). Not T-Mo. Shouldn’t be an issue getting one at launch without selling the farm.

  • Dial Prasad

    Hope Tim Cook dont present to the world

    • JBLmobileG1

      Maybe they can just bring in Ashton Kutcher as the presenter…. after all…. he does play as Steve Jobs in movie.

  • are_you_kidding_me99

    I guess this day is as good of a guess as any other day. Hey David, I guess rumors is all you have.

  • Katie

    I won’t be paying for a new phone. The one I have is good enough. If my IPhone does break, so I am forced to pay for a new phone, I’m going to consider all phone makers and most likely I’ll go with Samsung.

    • Whiskers

      That’s the same kind of decision I made last month when I finally had to upgrade after leaving my phone out in the rain by the pool , lol.. I went with the HTC ONE and it’s the best phone I have owned so far and i’m really not a big Android user.
      Half my family uses Iphones like the bible and I can honestly say my HTC ONE out performs their phones with ease and the screen is so much nicer to view.

  • Marco Braggion

    I’m really looking forward to the iPhone 5S or 6. And I’m very curious to see what it will look like. Also I’m very curious to see what they introduce in the low cost section. I will be of course picking my iPhone 5S up on the first day it comes to T-Mobile

    • MacRat

      I’m still using an iPhone 4 on T-Mobile.

      The 7Mbs HSPA is quite acceptable for now. :-)

    • g2a5b0e

      No guarantees in this world, but judging from past trends, the iPhone 5S will probably be identical to the iPhone 5. I doubt there will be any surprises there.

    • Dakota

      Youll have to wait next year for the 6. I think most media are more interested in the iPhone 5C or whatever the lower cost colored version will be called…and what features it will have

  • OldManPar

    Where is the next-gen full-sized iPad, Apple?

  • taron19119

    What’s the the price of the phone on tmobile going to be 99 down or 199 down

    • ChitChatCat

      Well, no one really knows yet. Although if it sticks with current pricing, it will be $146.99 down.

    • Dakota

      Theyd be smart to launch it at a lower upfront price and get attention from the media. Customers will see 99 vs the other carriers 199 and at least come into Tmobile and that gives the company a chance to sell them on their plans and show them that they will save money vs the other carriers…That is something that can be hard to explain and they havent been able to do it at all in their commercials

    • Brian T.

      If that rumored low-cost iPhone is true, I’m really hoping for $0 down and $399 spread over two years on T-Mo. If the rumors of a cheaper polycarbonate casing and somewhat older iPhone 4S or 5 components inside are true, they might be able to do it for $399. Customers would see it as a brand new iPhone for free, and it would sell like crazy. Hopefully the 5S/6 flagship will be $99 down, but I bet it’ll be the same as what we have now.

  • KingCobra

    I’m interested to see who is able to sell the most iPhones between Sprint and T-Mobile since this time they will both be getting the newest model at the same time. I think T-Mobile has a good chance of selling more of them than Sprint.

    • Luis Espinal

      I agree. everyone I know who bought an iPhone on Sprint, is so upset that they couldn’t find the phone on AT&T or Verizon.even though they knew that Sprint was a horrible network, they were still willing to go into that network just to be able to have the iPhone 5.its so funny because even my boss is sick of Sprint even though she has the iPhone 5, now all she talks about is switching over to T Mobile, because there is no way in hell that shes going to pay the prices for the other two.

    • gentleman559

      I seriously don’t even understand how Sprint has customers. Its THE worst network on the planet and yet somehow people still stay onboard. Ugh.

      • Dakota

        Ive spoken to a lot of sprint customers and they are fine with their coverage. Like any network, it depends on where you live. There are many foks who would say the same thing about TMobile

      • kalel33

        They have a much bigger network than T-mobile and when they roam they roam on all Verizon towers. T-mobile doesn’t roam on all AT&T towers, just some.

      • Oliver Jackson

        I say the same thing to this day.Had them back in 2012 earlier and after some CS issues and poor network esp their WiMax4g,I walked away and went to TMobile and couldn’t be happier.I even convinced a few of my co workers to switch and a few makes excuses to stay i.e. Oh I can still get a signal but it’s slow, but don’t see the bigger picture in the UN carrier NO CONTRACT scheme of things.I show them the speed on mines and LTE and their eyes pop out in amazement. And now look at TMobile,they even overtook Verizon as the carrier of choice for smartphones.

  • TmoSamsungMan

    Ahh I can’t wait to see all the stupid iPhone sheep lining up to get the same phone as last year. I’ll the first one to heckle them.

    • Eric

      Dude, honestly, if you hate Apple so much, stop reading articles about them, this is for people who like Apple or the iPhone in general.

      • TmoSamsungMan

        Ouch! You ok there buddy? I hope your rectum is alright! Btw I’m a free minded and free spirited individual and I’ll do anything or say anything I want as long as it’s not mentally or physically harming someone. What are you the nsa? Learn to be tolerant!

        • Eric

          IT’S JUST A PHONE.

        • TmoSamsungMan
        • Dakota

          Youre only joking and tell people to be tolerant and yet youre calling them names like a kindergartner

        • TmoSamsungMan

          Yes sir that is correct! I’m an expert at getting into people’s heads. Just like a real fan boy should do!

    • http://tmonews.com David

      I’ll be the first one to laugh at you for being upset about people buying a phone.

      • TmoSamsungMan

        Oh no come on Dave I meant it in a joking manner you should know better. Besides you really think I have time for that.

        • Eric

          Yeah, your name states otherwise.

        • TmoSamsungMan

          Dude let it go. And I was the angry one lol.

    • KingCobra

      Relax man it’s only a phone.

    • macman37

      And the rest of us will be the ones to laugh at you when you face difficulty upgrading your Samsung Galaxy S device from Android to Tizen – the OS mostly made by Samsung & Intel. Samsung & Intel are more of hardware companies (processors and other parts) than they are of a software development companies.

      • g2a5b0e

        You realize Tizen isn’t Samsung’s first attempt at a mobile OS, right? Ever heard of Bada? Yeah, most folks haven’t either. Tizen will never see any serious market penetration & even if it does, it will take many, many years. In other words, Samsung isn’t leaving its cash cow, Android any time soon. The scenario you presented will more than likely never happen.

        • macman37

          And Bada hardly lasted for 1 season in terms of popularity; although Tizen is backed and co-developed with a flavor of Linux, the projected marketshare of Tizen looks like most other flavors of the desktop version Linux’s marketshare – that’s hardly any. Their most well known flavors is Android and Chrome OS; and they’re facing patent suits like crazy.

        • g2a5b0e

          It sounds like you agree with me then.

        • TmoSamsungMan

          Hey thanks for coming to my aid there man, but you know some fan boy are  always right so therefore why even bother explaining although your right. Koreans and Asians in general are like the smartest people in the planet. I mean just look at how China is doing compared to us. Samsung executives aren’t stupid to drop something that there making a killing out of.

      • Dakota

        or when they start complaining that theyre stuck on an OS version from 2 years ago because they cant get an update and are forced to buy a new device. There are advantages and disadvantages to both

    • Dakota

      Most of them are on 2 year contracts so the 2 year upgrade cycle makes sense for them. Apple even said when they announced iOs7 that it will make people feel lke they have a new device without having to buy one. It does no good for ANdroid users to call Apple users names; APple users do the same. I dont know why you have to degrade people that dont share your choices. Its just like the polarization of our politics. You love your device. Great. Competition is good for everyone. And I dont know a single iPHone user who is unhappy with their experience.

    • Eric

      It’s funny cuz the Samsung Galaxy S4 is just a revamp of the S3………….no different than what Apple does.

  • http://www.uragon.com/ Bogart

    The first day the new iPhone comes out I’m switching from Android…

    NOT!

    • Dakota

      A lot of people will disagree with you

      • http://www.uragon.com/ Bogart

        I, for one, strongly agrees with you.

      • cheeto0

        Last quarter 80% of the phones shipped were android. and 14% were ios. Its kind of over already, Iphone/ios has gone the way of the Mac. A small percentage of people will pay up to have the apple logo. But most people won’t use it.

  • steveb944

    I’m hoping we get it on the same release date so we get a bunch of new customers. I don’t want Apple to treat us as a second rate carrier as before DT got us the deal.

    • TechHog

      Yeah, I’m really afraid that Apple will treat T-Mobile like a prepaid or regional carrier. I don’t think they will though.

      • Brian T.

        Yeah, they definitely send mixed signals about T-Mo’s status sometimes. In some areas of Apple’s website, they show all four major carrier logos. But in other areas, most notably the price (“From $199″), T-Mo isn’t in the mix. The T-Mo logo is featured prominently on the iPhone tab of the online Apple Store along with the other big three’s though, so my money’s definitely on same-day release and I’d be pretty surprised if that’s not the case. (Apple has everything to gain from favoring a company with the best upgrading ability too!)

    • Dakota

      This should also pressure Google to release a new Nexus and Android 5.0 sooner than later. If they wait too long, they may lose a lot of people who already went ahead and bought the new iPhone. Still think the Nexus should have a big push on Tmobile and prepaid carriers where a high end GSM device unlocked and contract free at $400 or under is super attractive. Im still using a Galaxy Nexus; it has Android 4.3 already, and the main reason is that Im paying only $45 a month when most of my friends are at $100 or more
      But as a Mac user who has also gone through a lot of problems and frustrations with Android, Im open to making a switch to iOs and simplifying my life and decisions)

      • kalel33

        Nexus is not a competitor to the Iphone, because Nexus devices are hardly marketed.

      • JointhePredacons

        Anyone that has “problems and frustrations” with Android has issues. Just because the new iPhone might come out before Android 5.0 or whatever version doesnt mean anything. Android has cracked the iPhone user base with phones that put the iPhone to shame. More and more iPhone users are switching to Android, the tide has turned, and its all flowing towards Android. iPhone users are finally realizing Apple releases the same phone each year with a new # and the only “new” things are all stolen from Android. We’re not blind, I was an avid iPhone and Apple user in general, till I picked up an Android phone and was blown away by how fast and easy to use it was, i could clear all the icons off my home screen and just display a picture of me and my wife, it was a revelation…widgets, and everything else. Smartphone users in general are waiting to see what Android does each year now, not Apple. I think Apple needs to do something to generate interest in their products again, which I doubt, not Android. Android is on top, and getting better with each incarnation.

  • Geek Man

    I am hoping Apple will release an exciting fresh iPhone.. or else, the phone competition will die.

    Competition is good for consumers.

    • Dakota

      That would be good but I dont know if it will be exciting to non Apple faithful. It seems they often introduce features they tout as innovative and then Android users say ‘we’ve had that for years’. That happened a lot with iOs7 and things like toggle switches!

      • Eugene

        I think if Apple introduces “new” features that did exist on Android from sometime, they shouldn’t market it as new and innovative. I agree that toggle switches are important and should have been added but they shouldn’t act like they were the first to think/implement it. That’s what really annoyed about some of the last iOS updates. Especially with the huge deal they made when they finally implemented Panorama. As long as they don’t try and claim those ideas as their own, then they should absolutely implement some “fresh for iphone” features. I think the reason it ticked me off is because of their claims on Samsung during all of the trials saying that they should stop copying other people’s ideas and claiming them as their own.

    • cheeto0

      Apple closed system kills competition if it does well. Android is completely open to be modified. Tons of companies make android phones and they modify it in many ways. That openness and diversity fuels competition. Competition, innovation and open systems are good for the consumer. Apple’s way of doing this is bad for the consumer.

      • Brian T.

        I think Android’s openness has led to tons of modifications, yes, but is that good for the consumer? Most of the modifications to the OS are steps backwards, I feel. There is an advantage to some unity when it comes to the OS, and leaving the competition to the OS’s app store.

        • cheeto0

          Its fine if a lot of the modifications are bad. The bad ideas will eventually lose out to the modifications with the better ideas. If you have one unified OS controlled by one company it is very bad for the consumer and the advancement of technology. It leaves no room for ideas and innovation. And if that one company has a bad idea, everyone is forced to live with it.

        • Brian T.

          I agree that the bad ideas eventually lose out (as seen in Sense becoming less stupid, Moto ditching Blur, multiple companies offering “Google Experience” versions of devices). And I also agree that one company controlling what we all use is not so good.

          I think that Apple makes Android better, and vice versa. I mainly worry about, if Apple fades away, Google in turn will be that company everyone is forced to live with and that it won’t have nearly the drive to innovate when it faces effectively zero competition. Why bother, when it has dozens of other innovations to focus on and it would be the only game in town. It certainly would pull resources from its Android team, and we’d be stuck with a similar situation to the PC market in the 90s (Windows 95…98….ME…yawn.)

          So I definitely agree with what you’re saying.

        • cheeto0

          You don’t need Apple to make android better, Amazon , Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, Google…etc are all throwing ideas at android and will continue to if apple disappears. They are a competing fevershly Plus No one is forced to live with Google’s decsion if they use android. Its not like windows. Windows is not open the way android is. OEMs were not able to see the source code or modify windows. Plus with apple gone there is room for other open mobile operating systems. There are many of them coming soon. Firefox OS, sailfish, ubuntu…etc.

    • JointhePredacons

      “exciting fresh iPhone” the perfect Oxymoron.

  • simeon tuoyo

    If these rumors are true– and they are really starting to look promising– I think it’s a step in the right direction for Apple. They have always been about high-quality, but that doesn’t necessarily mean their products have to be expensive. It is possible to manufacture products that are still high-quality but don’t cost a fortune, which most people fail to understand.

    If they can start catering to those of lower income, they will rake in more money than ever. It’s all about finding the right balance between the price and components to keep these cheap devices relatively high-end. Once they can get both high-income and low-income populations to come live in their walled garden, they will truly dominate the market.

    Now if only they would start looking into cheaper Mac models…

    http://latesttoptechnews.blogspot.com/2013/08/these-are-biggest-changes-coming-to.html

    • Dakota

      I just wonder if a lower cost iPhone diminishes the brand image prestige. We’ll have to see. Is the iPhone as ‘cool’ with younger people when their parents and grandparents use the device? I always think its interesting to see the media report on Android because pretty much most of them use iPhones (they say it on air) or Blackberrys. It has to skew the coverage a bit and why we get so much more fawning on TV when iPHones are released vs Androids or Nexus. (Even on a tech show like Bloomberg West, the 3 main anchors constantly talk about their iPhones)

      • kalel33

        It won’t diminish it. Look at the Ipad Mini, it’s a slow processor with a lowest resolution of all 7-8″ tablets yet it sells like hot cakes. It’s like Bose speakers, you pay for the name and most people recognize the name as “quality but you can get much better for the price.

        • JointhePredacons

          Sells like “hotcakes” because dumb people buy them.

    • cheeto0

      I think if the rumors are true I think is is dumb not to offer a large size display. The 5, 5c and 5c will all have the same size display. It seems the 5c will come in 6 colors. I think a phone like the moto x makes them look foolish. It’s almost the same size but it has a 4.7″ display, comes in 500 colors and is assembled in the USA.

    • JointhePredacons

      The phone is already a low income phone, in terms of technology. Finally the price will actually match the quality of the phone, which is low.

  • Jessicad

    After owning iPhone s my whole life after having the iPhone 5 for 2 months switched to android for the first time got an xperia Z purple version btw which btw was hell when ordering from tmobile.com they messed up my order twice and charged my credit card twice I was thinking of just cancelling everything and just going back to iPhone because the whole experience of switching my number from the iPhone to the xperia z was very crappy but I stood it out n stayed I couldn’t be more happy wit android never going back to apple again!!

    • JointhePredacons

      Most of us ex iPhone users feel that way too. Had iPhone 1 thru 4, then switched to Android with their super fast software ,big beautiful screens, totally customizable , will never go back to that Apple crap. Besides its the same software released in a new phone every year. Each phone I got from Apple looked and acted the same, i finally got tired of it. Im on my 2nd Android phone, the HTC ONE and each phone has been better than the last. Something Apple cant give me.

      • T. Allen

        Yeah, it looks like I’m going back to Android too. No WiFi calling on the iPhone is the dealbreaker for me. I can deal with the rest of it, but to literally fall into a black hole (phone & texting) when I’m at home just doesn’t work for me. So as much as I like my iPhone, I’m definitely gonna be switching. I’ll wait and see what Apple says and see just by a stroke of miraculous intervention, the feature is added. Otherwise, its the HTC One or GS4 for me.

        • JointhePredacons

          Either one is an awesome choice. My wife has the GS4 and I have the ONE.

        • T. Allen

          I keep hearing rave reviews about the ONE, so it looks like I’m leaning that way.

        • JointhePredacons

          The Front Facing speakers are amazing, try your favorite song, or a YouTube video and crank up the volume. The ONE lives up to the hype.

    • Jenn

      Punctuation marks, use them.

  • kaw

    It’s the battle for the iPhone to stay relevant

  • Dakota

    So makes that much more sense that Tmobile took away the 0 down on the iPhone 5 when youd want to incentivize customers to buy the older device months before the new one is released. Expect carriers or 3rd party retailers to start small discounts soon. Tmobile isnt as UN as they want you to think. Im sure they’ll have another promotion in the Fall and exclude the iPhone again

    • TechHog

      I love how so many people think that “uncarrier” should mean that they make bad business decisions and sacrifice profit to make people happy.

      Seriously man, relax.

    • MNBug

      I hope you realize that when they do the “0 down” they are just increasing your monthly phone payments to make up the difference.

    • Napster87

      you’re hella dumb. what’s this have to do with being the UNcarrier? I’m almost 100% sure that the decision to change the down payment was Apple’s request.

    • Nearmsp

      T-mobile had made it very clear that the additional discount on the T-mobile iPhone 5 is an introductory offer only. You probably did not realize and delayed buying and now having missed it are angry at T-mobile. You got to be an informed customer to get the best deals.

  • T. Allen

    I’m hoping WiFi calling comes with it. Can’t get service when I am inside my apartment. Wifi calling would be huge for me.

  • David Lebron

    Any word at all on the Honami??

  • Alex Zapata

    As long as T-Mobile gets it right at, or right near the official launch it can only mean good things for magenta.

    • 1Fae

      You can get apps such as MagicJack for free internet calling.

      • Nearmsp

        what is the subscription to Magic Jack?

      • sincarafan247

        You can get free Wi-Fi calling on tmobile so why would you need magic jack?

  • Pornstache

    You will never separate me from my Samsung Galaxy S3, never I say! Love this phone.

    • Nearmsp

      Good for you. My SGS2 has become old. I will try out the iPhone 5S. The sound quality on the iPhone 5 is far superior to my SGS2.

  • Jesus Villafranca

    Maybe this is way too early to ask for this but does anyone have any information if the new iphone will be like the current tmobile iphone 5 version in terms of frequency compatibility? For example, the current, official Iphone5 can access both ATT bands on tmobile on refarm areas as well as the tmobile owned 3G bands (I forgot the exact name of the bands lol , I don’t know if it uses both bands for data download simultaneous or switches among the stronger one however it is nice to know the iphone can detect both bands) . Will the future iphone support the same feature?

  • This guy

    Been waiting for this, still stuck with the vibrant hehe, if it has wifi calling I will go with the iphone if not, looks like the htc one will be my new phone :) btw is there any lag with the htc one ? anyone ?

    • Stefan

      Nope , no lag , your best bet will be getting the HTC One instead of the Iphone.

    • macman37

      It looks like the WiFi calling feature will be the non-video FaceTime calling feature. This way that each carrier has it, and not just only T-Mobile.

      • macman37

        Excuse me for not recalling the name of the iPhone’s feature, but I just remembered it’s called FaceTime Audio.

  • Warsun

    Here’s the problem Apple faces. Initially they led and were able to offer the same phone one year later with incremental changes. At first people would say that new feature is what I need and I’ll buy that phone with a little better camera real fast. Well here comes one android phone( go g1), then 3, rough around the edges but all there. Suddenly Apple faces 50 phones with thousands of developers saying lets make these apps almost for free, just because it’s fun. Now Apple is screwed because the way Android is built , there is no way they can keep up with hundreds of phones trying to out due each other and millions of developers at every creative level going crazy. Anything Apple has thought of someone has already done or will copy it within days. They can’t win. Samsung will start facing a similar problem soon, but for now they keep surprising us. I skipped the s4 and will wait one more cycle. As long as they keep an sd card and swappable battery they beat HTC too.
