Since I updated my blog last night, more pictures of the iPhone 5C have been leaked online.  A video of the iPhone being used to browse the Internet on iOS 7 was online this morning, but was taken off YouTube shortly after.  The link connects to the website where the video was first posted, but it is no longer watchable.  The website also lists the tech specs.

Every year around this time, Apple hosts a media event where they reveal the successor to the last year’s iPhone and lower the prices on older iPhones.  This year is no different.  We are expecting to see the sixth generation iPhone (called iPhone 5S) and a lower-cost iPhone 5 (called iPhone 5C).  Rumor has it that this year’s event will be scheduled for September 10, as reported by AllThingsD, The Loop, WSJ and others.  The hint-filled invitations should arrive for this event about a week before the event (roughly sometime between September 1 and 3).  Even though Apple has declined to comment on the rumors, we have seen in the past that most rumors are true.
