Colorful Invites to Apple Press Event Mean...

Apple's event invitation was colorful, with orange, blue, green, etc. Since Apple normally does not send out colorful invitations -- or colorful anything for that matter -- it may tell us something about the new iPhone 5s. Since one of the consistent rumors is that it will come in multiple colors, this invitation seems to support the rumor.
 



Apple has finally sent out official invites for the iPhone unveiling next Tuesday, which has been rumored for the past month. The event will be taking place at 10 a.m. PT and will be held at the Apple campus in Cupertino, Calif.

At the unveiling, we expect to see both an iPhone 5s -- Apple's flagship device -- and a cheaper iPhone 5c. The iPhone 5s may end up being called the iPhone 6, but based on the expected hardware changes -- which are few and far between -- Apple does not seem likely to give the new model the higher version number.

The Invite

Although invites are normally interesting because they let everyone know when a new device will be announced, they generally lack any real information regarding the product. However, Apple's invitation for the iPhone unveil does hint at some of the rumors that have been circulating awhile.

The invitation was colorful, with orange, blue, green, etc. Since Apple normally does not send out colorful invitations -- or colorful anything for that matter -- it may tell us something about the iPhone 5s. Since one of the consistent rumors regarding the new device is that it will come in multiple colors, this invitation seems to suggest the rumor is indeed accurate.

At the same time, basing reports on the colors present on the invitation may not be a smart thing to do. Despite many reputable sources pointing out the colors, Apple also sent a colorful invitation to the first iPad event, which only saw black and white devices.

What to Expect

Perhaps even more interesting than the iPhone 5s itself is that the device will be launching with iOS 7. Unlike previous updates to the iOS ecosystem, this update is set to bring a complete redesign along with cool new features.

Apple will likely include an upgraded camera in the phone as well. The main difference between the iPhone 5 and the 5s may be that the new device would come with dual flash -- among other technical changes -- which will improve the camera's performance in low-light situations.

The rumor that won't die is that Apple will integrate near-field communication technology into the iPhone 5s. Although this is a feature that would benefit some people, it is not incredibly important and has been rumored for years now. Plus, with the inclusion of Passbook in the iPhone 5, it does not make a lot of sense for Apple to integrate NFC into the phone.

Last but not least, the iPhone 5s should be launching with a fingerprint sensor. After Apple acquired sensor manufacturer AuthenTec, rumors began spreading that the company would include the technology in the next iPhone. Since it was an expensive acquisition -- Apple paid $356 million for the company -- and it was unable to include the sensors in the iPhone 5, we may see them included in the iPhone 5s.
