In just a day or so, Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL) is going to unveil their new range of products that the company hopes will keep them up and running. Press event scheduled for September 10 is rumored to be about the next iPhone(s), though the polka dot-filled invitation keeps it simple as always – ?This should brighten everyone?s day.? Question is ? will it brighten Apple?s day? Shares are down to $500 ($700 last year), and expectations set by both media and analysts are incredibly high.

Without going into much detail on the 5C/5S saga as virtually anything from Apple is possible at this point, it is worth saying that some hardware specifications have finally leaked on the Chinese CTechnology. Closely following the development line of previous iPhone units, the iPhone 5S should pack the new A7 SoC while keeping the overall appearance of the device similar (aside from the presence of the dual-LED flash on the back and possible fingerprint sensor on the home button) to the current unit.
Curiously enough, iPhone 5S will keep the 8-megapixel shooter on the back with company apparently skipping the ?megapixel war? again. However, optics seem to be better with leaked material claiming that main lens is an f/2.0 (current f/2.4), and software should enable 1080p video recording at 120fps. Another interesting piece of info on the next iPhone is the claim that battery will hold about 250 hours on standby. Again, everything here is to be taken with a pinch of salt ? until it is official.
Many have noted that Apple is trying to fix their ties with Android-dominated China market, with the most recent one try being a China Mobile deal. CM has around 745 million subscribers, almost three times as much as the whole U.S. Some even went as far as to claim that the colorful iPhone 5C is going to be for that market only, but as noted earlier ? at this point, anything is possible with Apple.
