A new report has surfaced claiming that the iPhone 5S and 5C will be available to the public from the 20th of September, 10 days after they are due to launch.

The report from, originally released by Techmaniacs and translated by Phone Arena, claims that Apple has scheduled a rollout of the next generation iPhone (the 5S) and their upcoming budget handset (the 5C), following suit with their usual tradition of having products in stores between one and two weeks after an official announcement and ensuring that devices are launched on Friday to give consumers the weekend to shop. The only date which fits these criteria alongside the rumoured September 10th date of announcement is the 20th.

September is looking to be a busy month for Apple with iOS 7 having recently had a final beta release before a rumoured September 16th release date, just in time for the next generation of iPhones. Meanwhile, Apple’s other hardware; the next generations of the iPad and iPad Mini are rumoured to be set for a release a little later in October.

Of course, like everything else we ‘know’ about Apple’s upcoming products, the company is keeping tight lipped and is refusing to confirm anything, so we’ll have to wait until September to see whether all the hearsay will come to anything concrete.
