It's all happening! CNET reports that Apple has sent invitation to the press for an event on Sept. 10. The tech giant is widely expected to announce its next-generation iPhone and, possibly, a cheaper model.
A brightly-colored invitation with a similar color palette to Apple's new mobile operating system iOS 7, simply states: "This should brighten everyone's day."
Few details are known about the next iPhone, except that it will come with a completely redesigned mobile operating system. Other rumors suggest that Apple will include features like a fingerprint sensor, dual-LED flashlight and upgraded hardware. The new iPhone is also expected to keep the current design and 4-inch display. Some rumors suggest that the new iPhone will come in a variety of colors, including gold.
Rumors about a low-cost iPhone, that is being dubbed the iPhone 5C, suggest that it will be made of plastic and come in a variety of colors.
The event will be held at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. at 9 a.m. PT. CBSNew.com's sister site CNET will report live from the event.
