For every Apple fan out there, the end of August is usually a time where excitement levels tend to grow as anticipation for the Apple event increases on a Worldwide scale.
This year the date is set to September 10th, which if you cast your minds back to 2012, landed on the same day.
The question now, is what will Apple be offering up?
We have already covered the iOS 7 Beta releases, and for those that haven’t had a chance to check out the revamped operating system, then let me tell you, you are in for a treat. Friday 16th August saw iOS 7 Beta 6 released, in which seems to be the final beta launch before we see the official OS rollout in September.
Saying that, there was a rumour circulating on Monday 19th August that we could see a final beta, which would have been iOS 7 Beta 7. However, we are yet to see this come to light.
The new operating system has seen some massive changes, the biggest being the interface, fonts and icons which all take up a new appearance. There are also some technical changes that we covered in our last article on the history of iOS 7 beta releases.
The iPhone 5C
All year there has been talk that Apple are going to launch a cheaper alternative to the pricey iPhone. This new budget phone will most likely be labelled as the iPhone 5C, and will consist of a plastic design, lower-spec, and available in a range of different colours.
This budget phone will certainly give the chance for Apple fans who usually can’t afford the higher-spec iPhone, the opportunity to own an Apple device at a relatively cheaper cost.
The iPhone 5S
The iPhone 5S is the phone we have all been waiting for, the headline act of the Apple event.
Last year we saw the iPhone 5 launched, followed by several teething problems after its release. The iPhone 5S is 2013’s follow on from the iPhone 5, and as competition has put the pressure on Apple they will need to really push the barriers with this new phone.
Do you think Apple have exhausted all their options without Steve Jobs at the helm? Or do you think the move to make Jonathan Ive the Vice President of Design will favour them this year?
