The big rumor today is that Apple is set to launch the iPhone 5S in August, with a new 5th generation iPad and 2nd generation iPad mini appearing in April. Rene Ritchie at iMore has received reports that Apple is seriously considering the launch of the next iPads next month, including a redesigned iPad, and an iPad mini that may possibly see a Retina display. Meanwhile, the iPhone 5S will carry the same outer design that the iPhone 5 sports, but with a faster A7 processor, and improved camera (we're hearing 13 megapixels.) One rumor also says that the iPhone 5S may also coming in multiple colors, similar to the iPod touch. For now, iPhone 5 users need to rely on services like AnoStyle to get custom colors on their smartphones.

After iMore broke the news that sources indicated that Apple would announce the next iPhone on September 12 with the launch of the device happening nine days later on the 21st, more outlets have independently confirmed the scoop. Publications that have chimed in include The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, All Things D, and even Jim Dalrymple at The Loop (he's likely the most trustworthy of the bunch.) This means that interested iPhone buyers have just six weeks to wait until Apple announces its next flagship product, and one more week on top of that to get their hands on it.

The design of the next iPhone has likely leaked multiple times, and is expected to feature a taller 4-inch display, two-toned rear casing, built-in NFC, and other improvements, including a new, smaller dock connector.
It's the time of year where Apple fans wait with bated breath for the next iPhone release, and iMore has rumors of when we can expect to see the iPhone 5 (or whatever Apple ends up calling it) make its debut.
According to the site, Apple will hold the press conference keynote on Wednesday, September 12. The new iPhone will be shown off in all its glory to the press on that day, and should then go on sale nine days later on Friday, September 21.
