iPhone 5S and low-cost 'iPhone 5C' to launch 6 September?

New reports and a leaked image suggest that Apple is planning to launch two new iPhones in September

Apple could be planning to launch the iPhone 5S and a cheaper model called 'iPhone 5C' on 6 September, according to new reports and a photo of allegedly leaked packaging.

German blog iFun cites a "very credible and serious source" in a report that suggests Apple's next-generation will launch on 6 September, alongside the rumoured low-cost iPhone. This more affordable iPhone, which has previously been dubbed 'iPhone Lite', could be called "iPhone 5C", if a photograph that appears to show packaging for the device turns out to be legitimate.

The photograph was shared on the WeiPhone forums, and shows a box full of plastic packaging that could be destined for Apple Retail Stores. The shape and size of the packaging seems to match up with leaked images of the cheaper iPhone's chassis, and the style of the packaging would suit an entry-level iPhone model.

We're not sure about the name "iPhone 5C" for the low-cost iPhone, though. We certainly don't think Apple would want to describe the new device as "cheap" so we're wondering what the "C" in the name could stand for. One possibility is "colour", as recent low-cost iPhone leaks have shown what's believed to be the smartphone's chassis in various different colours.
