Leaked Video Shows Champagne iPhone 5S, Blue iPhone 5C

All the evidence continues to point toward a Sept. 10 event to launch two new iPhones, and we can likely expect Apple to make an official announcement next week. A new video has appeared on the web that gives you a good look at the forthcoming champagne- or gold-colored iPhone 5S as well as a blue iPhone 5C.

The video just shows the casings, but that's enough to show what they'll look like. The first part of the video shows the champagne-colored iPhone side by side with a current black and white iPhone 5s. About halfway through it then adds the blue iPhone 5C. You can see how it's just slightly thicker and has more rounded edges.

It's amazing how the different material (polycarbonate), the slightly different form, and the blue color give the iPhone 5C a different personality. I think consumers will find both phones appealing.

In other news, a big question is when we'll be able to download iOS 7, which will likely come installed on the new phones. A rumor reported by AppleInsider suggests that it'll be available Sept. 10, the same day as Apple's event.
