The iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C should be official on September 10, at least that’s what the rumors (which are always right about Apple announcement dates) say so far.

The company is set to announce the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C, and we will probably get a release date as well. For the US, it will likely be a week or two (tops) after the event. Apple is good at announcing delivering immediately after.

The handset will arrive later in China. Here’s a portion of the report explaining it:

“…two months after the rumored global launch. The reason: the next-gen iPhone has not completed the verification process required by the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the report said.”

We are sure it will come soon enough, but two separate sources in China are reporting that same date independently. Seems like a good bet.
