Colourful new iPhones expected as Apple announces launch event

San Francisco – Apple sent out a colourful invitation Tuesday for a September 10 launch event at which it is widely expected to announce a new version of its iPhone.

The invitation, which featured a palette of brightly coloured dots above the tag line “this should brighten everyone’s day”, followed numerous media reports that the company would be introducing a line of low-cost iPhones in a variety of playful colours, while the company’s premium models would feature a gold-coloured phone in addition to the usual black-and-white offerings.

Apple is facing ever-more intense competition from Samsung and a variety of manufacturers who rely on Google’s rival Android operating system, with a number of companies now offering models that beat the iPhone in terms of specifications, screen size and features.

The company last week launched a trade-in programme for older models, which will allow owners to take their used iPhones into stores and receive up to $280 (R2 900) towards the cost of a new model.
