_The new device will debut in September or October, with the dates most frequently circulated as Sept. 10 or Sept. 20.

_The device will be called the iPhone 5S with a cheaper version called the 5C.

_The cheaper version will be housed in plastic instead of metal and will come in six colors: white, black, green, blue, pink and yellow. Siri also may not be offered with the 5C version.

_The more expensive metal 5S would come in gray/silver, gold, black and white.

_Apple will launch a new trade-in program and is already training stores on how it will work.

_The 5S may have a storage option up to 128 GB, compared with the maximum 64 GB for the iPhone 5

_To improve photos in low-light conditions, the camera will have a larger aperture.
