The WSJ is reporting that Apple has asked Hon Hai to ship both a high-end and low-end iPhone in early September.

The shipping plans suggest that two new iPhone models could be launched as soon as next month, pointing to a strategy shift as Apple attempts to regain its momentum in the smartphone market. The company hasn't previously announced different iPhone models around the same time. Apple's suppliers in Asia started mass-producing components in June for both a standard iPhone featuring a metal casing and a lower-cost version, people who work at those companies said.

While it was widely expected that Apple would unveil both devices on September 10th, the WSJ report provides a bit of confirmation that Apple plans to have both devices available for purchase shortly after their unveiling.

The iPhone 5S is expected to sport a fingerprint scanner, improved camera, 128GB of storage, and a new gold color. The iPhone 5C is expected to be a lower end plastic shell device that comes in a variety of color options.

Ugh look at how I am using beta and to tell you Mr.iFake i Love ios 7, did they say it was the chinese that came up with them, read the products they all say "designed by apple in california" you are too desperate to believe such fake shit! Lamedroid will definently lose ground compared to ios 7 beating lamedroid phone tapping feature no matter what happens to them! They are like justin beibarf, poor lazy and same shit we always hated! ios 7 will see how spamdroid 4.1 deals with it! They are far far from ahead now I can see them going down to the toilet! I actually understand technology now that I think about it! ios 7 is greater than lamedroid 4.1! It all makes sense to me now! Thank you new brain!!
