Apple’s iPhone 5S and 5C event: What to expect

Autore: ExtremeTech

iPhone event 2013

Tomorrow afternoon, Apple is hosting its yearly iPhone event where we’re likely going to see the official unveiling of the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5C, and take another in-depth look at iOS 7. There have also been rumors that Apple could announce a MacBook refresh, as well as some new iPads. What should you expect tomorrow?

iPhone 5S and 5C

For months now, the main Apple rumors have been regarding the upcoming flagship iPhone 5S, and the cheaper, midrange, colorized iPhone 5C model. The 5S is expected to come in a few color options, much in the way of the metallic crayons that come in a standard Crayola box — a graphite (black) option, a silver (the white one), and a champagne (gold). Each color is expected to be classy and muted, without a gaudy gold-brick style shine. The iPhone 5S has also been rumored to contain a fingerprint scanner in the vicinity of the Home button, as well as increased photo capabilities in the form of a dual-LED flash.

The iPhone 5C, aside from the more vivid color options akin to the old iPod Nanos, will sport a plastic body, and be more of a midrange phone than a true budget phone. This is because the overall rumored price has consistently fallen into a range that will still set you back multiple hundreds of dollars, though could hit a nice $ 99 mark on contract. As for the hardware, it’s said to be around the same power of the iPhone 5, so it would be lagging behind the 5S in terms of power.

iOS 7

Technically, there’s no official release date for Apple’s upcoming mobile OS. However, the operating system tends to release around the time the new phones do, so it would be safe to expect iOS 7 to release alongside the iPhone 5S, or at least shortly after. Back in June we got an in-depth look at iOS 7, and while it still maintains its iOS-like simplicity, it will move into the skinny-text, flat-color look of the modern times more like Windows 8′s Metro or Android’s current aesthetic. The skeuomorphism will be gone, replaced by simple lines and shapes.

What we don’t know much about, though, is Apple’s rumored music-streaming service, iTunes Radio. Thankfully, this isn’t Ping 2.0, but is said to be more akin to Pandora or Spotify.

Hardware

There have been iPad 5 and Retina iPad Mini rumblings for a while now, but reports can’t decide whether or not they’ll be included in tomorrow’s event, or make an appearance at a separate event. The same goes for a MacBook Pro refresh; Haswell is out in the wild, but MBPs do not count as part of that wild just yet. A Haswell-powered MBP is a safe bet to exist at some point, but tomorrow might not be that point, as the event appears to be focused on mobile.

We’re likely also to focus on the new chip that powers the iPhone 5S, the A7, especially because it’ll likely be included in the upcoming iPads.

iWatch concept

With the unveiling of the iPhone 5C, it also wouldn’t be surprising if Apple finally buries the iPod, as all but the Nano (thanks to its size) have been superfluous for quite a while anyway. Then again, a new iPod Touch and Nano were released at the same time as the iPhone 5 last year, so perhaps there’s still a market Apple will want to continue beating to death.

Apple could also reveal a smartwatch — since everyone and their grandmothers already did. However, it’s just as likely Apple wouldn’t want to reveal an entirely new product and take the focus away from the iPhones.

Whatever happens tomorrow, those on the S line of iPhones will certainly be happy to finally upgrade to a fifth row of app icons.

  1. Salve, io ho un iPhone 4 nero perché me lo hanno regalato, siccome nero non mi piace e lo vorrei bianco e volevo chiedervi quanto viene a costare in tutto una cover originale davanti e di dietro alla Apple store ?? Perché vorrei passarlo al colore bianco … Grazie !!!

  2. Nel senso io ho un’ipad con un film dentro normale cioè non noleggiato, in quel caso è possibile guardarlo sull’apple tv? Serve una connessione internet o dal momento che hai acquistato il film puoi vederlo in tv senza internet? L’ipad o apple tv devono essere collegati almeno uno di questi a internet o no? Grazie in anticipo scusate per la lunghezza del testo ma vorrei comprare un apple tv e vorrei essere sicuro di non avere comprato una cosa che non mi serve. In più se potete mi direste altre cose sull’apple tv che potrebbero servirmi?

  3. Ieri, dopo una caduta, il tasto home del mio iphone si è rotto. L’ho acquistato in un apple store un anno e mezzo fa. Secondo voi, se lo porto a quell’apple store dove l’ho comprato, riesco a farmi sostituire il tasto home sfruttando la garanzia?

  4. Quello che mi chiedo è io ho riscontrato un problema per quanto riguarda le chiamate,infatti quando effettuo una chiamata la voce dell altro sembra ovattata o addirittura quando mi parlano capisco solo 2 parole di un discorso o addirittura cade la linea come sempre,praticamente per parlare con una persona sono costretto a richiamarla dalle 2 alle 3 volte.Come faccio a dimostrarglielo allo store dell apple ma sopratutto è un motivo valido affinche me lo cambino che poi è quello che voglio?!

  5. Vorrei comprare delle applicazione per l’iphone sull’apple store ma quando la voglio scaricare mi chiede di pagare con il numero della carta di credito. Io che non ho la carta di credito come faccio a pagare le applicazioni che voglio comprare?

  6. Per mettere le immagini nel mio ipod nano apple 8gb devo per forza sempre sincronizzare la cartella o cè un modo di trascinare semplicemente le immagini tipo quelli della playlist musica???Grazie
