Apple will reportedly unveil its next iPhone on September 10th, according to the often reliable AllThingsD.

One of the key questions is whether Apple adopts a new tactic to address the mid-range of the smartphone market. Historically, Apple has gone after those customers by offering its year-old and two-year-old models for $100 and $200 less than a new iPhone. However, there has been a great deal of talk that the company will debut a new lower-cost iPhone alongside whatever update it has in store for the current iPhone 5. Much of the speculation there has centered on the usual kinds of camera and processor enhancements, as well as the likelihood of a fingerprint sensor. That has been expected ever since Apple acquired Authentec last year.

The site notes that of course the new devices will run iOS 7, Apple's new mobile operating system. You can learn more about the new features in iOS 7 here.

Notably, Apple is also expected to launch Mac OS X Mavericks in the coming weeks but not at the September 10th event.

Earlier today, mockup iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C images surfaced which show the expected design of Apple's new devices. You can check out those photos here.

Apple declined to comment on the report.

Just open the software to developers already. Free the jailbreak team of their security research "Of course," Cook told AllThingsD's Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. "On the general topic of opening up APIs, I think you'll see us open up more in the future, but not to the degree that we put the customer at risk of having a bad experience. So there's always a fine line to walk there, or maybe not so fine." Just a thought for some of you jail-breakers out there: What if iDevices came pre-installed with cydia and an advanced security base IOS. The owner of the device has an option in their settings called "Jailbreak" or something along the lines, it would then explain to the user that beyond this point opens a lot of doors for customization but at the risk of having a bad experience and or a buggy experience. This would allow the user to then have the choice to have a "jailbreak" like experience that could make them love their phone even more and still have the option to switch back to the normal iOS at any given time. If anything was to go wrong on the device, the user has many options for reporting bugs and testing 3rd party tweaks / customization's without actually causing harm to the device because of a more advanced like "Mobile Substrate" and "Safe mode". Think of it as an always Open Beta that all users can try and if they dont enjoy it they can stick to their boring basic iOS experience. Obviously i am not saying this would be easy but would be a lot better for development, innovation, and the increase of sales for apple! I could keep going on with ideas but please just pass this around and hopefully apple and or 'Tim Cook' will come across it and realizw how much this would help iOS development and apple itself. Steve Jobs is gone. Bless his soul. But always remember he was all about making the User feel in control of their device while also having an amazing experience with the device! -Cheers

On a global scale, number for jailbroken devices is actually pretty small. Most users don't even know what jailbreak is. So while I applaud your idea, I find it hardly plausible for Apple to go ahead and do it.
