Apple’s new iPhone on September 10th

Predictions by analysts and tech pundits will be paid heed to and heard by several as fans camp and line up and camp outside is soon to be spectated. The Cupertino Tech giant, Apple Inc. has announced September 10 as the official date for the launch of the newest iteration of its immensely anticipated gadget, the iPhone 5S.

Aside from the flurry of hot rumours, the developers are waiting with abated breath for the official release of the device’s operating system, the hotly awaited iOS 7. The iOS 7 is said to have the long expected major overhaul, both in terms of visuals and functionality. Developers have had been tinkering with the beta version of the OS for quite a while and now eagerly anticipate the release of its official version which is to happen on the same day as the device.

Leading app development companies like Apps Developers Australia (SDI) have already initiated development for adapting to the fresh functionality features of the device. The OS now consists of both a pull down events notifier and a pull up quick settings toggle. Having developed for premium clients such as PepsiCo and Stanford University, only the finest of applications can be expected by such established development companies.

The software has a lot to be talked about, even when it comes to design of the icons, which now have on board the most talked about hardware designer, Jonathan Ive. What is ought to leave us in awe will be the product of the day itself, the iPhone 5S. Like every year, the gadget has an unbelievably long list of rumors. Some of the most prominent being the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner, a not so different change from the iPhone 5 and the imbibed launch of the iTunes Radio, Apple’s own ad supported free internet music service.

But perhaps, the biggest attraction of them, a product which is bound to steal the limelight is the iPhone 5C. ‘C’ is most likely attributed to ‘Colour’, since several leaks have pointed out that the budget friendly iPhone variant will be available in a wide variety of colours and will be composed of a polycarbonate body, unlike its premium aluminium-cased sibling. If the iPhone 5C is indeed more than just another rumor, the tech community and markets are bound to go haywire.

Due to being prohibitively expensive, the masses avoided purchasing the device outright, but now with a variant that won’t burn a hole in the pockets of the masses, there won’t be anything stopping the new iPhone to take the markets by storm. In such a scenario, no business can afford to not have a dedicated iPhone app as that would mean losing out on a lot of potential customers.

With the sales of new iPhone models predicted to skyrocket, iOS app development is bound to shoot through the roof. The options for bogus app developers may also increase simultaneously, but in the end it will only be trusted and reliable app developers like SDI, which will come up with apps, which stand out from the crowd.
