Apple’s iPhone Event!

Apple’s iPhone event starts in about 27 minutes (at the time of writing this article). I will be trying to update the blog with all the latest news as it comes out. Not exactly live, but it’ll be pretty close. I will be tweeting everything I hear/see about so be sure to follow me @william_vab for all the latest updates on the event.

For now we only have expectations and speculation as to what the event will unveil. We have no idea as to what will be announced but according to rumor there may be an iPhone 5C and 5S being announce.

Now, the 5C is supposed to be an intermediate model between the 5 and the 5S. It will supposedly come in many colors and contain the same hardware internally as the previous iPhone 5 model, but in a plastic and glass enclosure, in contrast to the existing glass and metal combination. This model should be more affordable to more people as it will be a cheaper model made of cheaper components. That’s not to say it won’t be the same quality that we are used to seeing with Apple, with out a doubt it will be still be an impressive device.

The 5S is supposedly bring to the table some really big features and components. Are we going to see a new A6+ processor? I sure hope so, but as usual with Apple the jump from the numeric device to its ‘S’ brethren is never great. It’s more meant for people who are coming from a much older device like the 4 or the 4S. It is supposed to have a new feature that we have never seen before, a fingerprint scanner. The home button is being redesigned to house this innovation. As you can see here from this leaked photo,

That metal ring you see around the Home Button is supposedly going to be used to aid the conductance required for the function of the fingerprint scanner. This would be a cool feature to implement, and it would provide a higher level of security for the owners. Other than the apparent home button design change there is supposed to be a change that will appeal to the camera buffs out there. They may be implementing a dual LED flash system to the back panel of the device. The device may also come in a color that the corporate giant, Apple has never done before, gold.

To have an iPhone 5S in gold would definitely differetiate the device from the others, just how the white shelled iPhone 3GS did from the 3G’s black shell.

This image shows the alleged iPhone 5S back glass pane with a large cutout for the Dual LED flash system. This could be useful in low light situations where you need an immense amount of light to take a photo, maybe while camping or something like that.

These physical changes could be a good selling point for most iPhone 4 or 4S users but for those who own an iPhone 5, it could be useless and frivolous upgrade. I would say wait until the launch of the iPhone 6 (if that is what it is called). There is no confirmation for these rumors and for all we know they could be completely wrong, the only way we can know for sure is to wait until the event begins. Stay tuned with us here at TheiRepo.com as we release the latest news from the event!
