Apple to reveal next iPhone Sept. 10 - Report

Cupertino technology giant expected to unveil latest iteration of popular smartphone during special event next month.

Sources have told the Wall Street Journal's AllThingsD that Apple is expected to announce the next iPhone during a special event on September 10.

Apple announced the iPhone 5--the latest iteration of the popular smartphone--during a September 2012 event. That phone went on to sell 5 million units in its first weekend on the market.

In addition to an iPhone 5 upgrade, Apple is rumored to be at work on a less expensive iPhone, as well as an iWatch.

Apple was a major partner for Battlefield and Mass Effect publisher Electronic Arts in the latest quarter. For the first time in the company's history, Apple was EA's most significant retail partner measured by overall sales during the April-June period.

And what education qualifies you to say anything?? I happen to be a electrical engineer student about to graduate!! I know way more about the functionality of hardware than the average person.

What's the difference, they all do the same thing.  People will argue back and forth but a smartphone is a smartphone, you've seen one you've seen 'em all.  Oooooh HD screen and better camera.  Faster CPU and more RAM that will make zero difference because any decent phone out doesn't have a problem with input lag or loading web pages.  It's like a sick cycle and I see a lot of people wasting money for more power that they will do the exact same thing with as the last phone they had, which is text and make phone calls.  Yay the UI is so snappy and user friendly.  All the better so you can switch back and forth between screens to see all the apps you downloaded that you don't use.  I'm gonna go get in line right now.

We have had curved screen tech for months. Make the phone a bit curvy. Nuff said. Or even better, make it flip open like a RAZR but with a bendy screen. It's pointless, but cool. (Apples motto I believe)

Stopped liking Apple with the 4S's boring launch the 5's narrow screen and the first year design students iPhone 1st gen iPhone 4 hybrid design. Not to mention iOS 6 IOS 7 and the oversized overpriced ipad mini. Im just waiting for another boring 5S design refresh and that cheap and nasty 5C thing to finish it all off for me.

Too much competition for the Iphone 5 now. the galaxy s4 and htc one and even nexus 4 are killing it. Lol.

as much as i like iPhone, i dont see the point upgrading every year just for a few extra features, usually wait two or three years.

Please my American friends, stop being conformist and skip this generation of IPhone, that'll send a message to Apple to shoot for quality instead of year in year out cash cow tactics.

Predictions: Highly doubt an iWatch Announcement, in fact, I've thought it was a hoax for so long. Less expensive iPhone announcement is probable, considering that Samsung, Apple's main competitor, have phones ranging from cheap to expensive and even further on than that. Next iPhone upgrade is inevitable. Let's face it, they're not going to fall behind now, they need something new for it to be 'magical'.

Waiting on the iphone 6 to upgrade from the 4S...


Lol at these phone wars comments, "isheep" etc...use the phone you like and don't care what other people say, problem solved.

I'm glad to hear apple is making a new phone already shows they are keeping ahead of the others. I'm gonna stick with my I5 it's already way better than anything else out there and I'm sure the new device will not have anything way to describe for everyone who has the I5 already. I'm not sure what is rumored but I hope they do not make a larger screen because the I5 is already big enough. Those phones with large screens break way to easy and don't fit in a pocket. I don't think anything major is coming because no other phones have anything Revolutionary on them. I love how people talk up the S4 look away feature like its really useful ..... Please the time it takes to press pause is soooo small you'd never know the diff.

Seriously Gamespot, no one fucking cares about the fucking iTurd and this article has no business being on Gamespot since the iTurd is just a crappy phone and not a gaming device so unless your going to start posting news relating to Android phones than leave this shit off of Gamespot.

@Joedgabe Its like that with every tablet and phone guys whats the big deal? you dont have to upgrade every year if you dont want to thats ok.

@Trender_man 

And everyone is on the same cycle as you, so they need to only release them when you need one?  ALL the phonemakers release yearly upgrades.  Samsung is going to release FIVE different Galaxy phones this year.

@Gordon_Shock 

damn I skipped 2 generations now ... lol ... i still dont' see the differnce between my iphone 4, the 4s and the 5 (yes it's more powerful) ... but to me only real upgrade I saw was the between the 3 and the 4.  

They need to do more than just change the UI / UX and have those commercials where that guy with the balding hair goes ... "we've maaade this the 'BEST' iphone yet - its AH LU MIN NI UM this and makes you think - I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE"

@Gordon_Shock 

If you bought a 4S and your two year contract is up, the 5S is two generations ahead of your current phone.

ALL the phone makers release annual upgrades.  Are you mad at Toyota because you bought a 2013 car and they will soon release the 2014 model?  You know that TV lines are refreshed yearly, too.  Right?

@Butt_Chunx MIllions of people own iPhones, you know that, right?  Also, the iPhone itself IS a gaming platform, you know that too, right?

@deathstream @Gordon_Shock The difference between the IPhone and the other items you mention is that the former is specifically marketed and targeted to create the need to throw the "old" one out and buy the "new' one. Sad that so many folk fall in the trap cuzz at that price they are REALLY getting gypped.
