Apple loyalists who have held tight to their iPhones even as rival manufacturer release one new gadget after another that takes aim at the tried-and-true favorite won't have to wait much longer to fight back.

The Cupertino, Calif.-based company is expected to unveil the next version of the iPhone during a Sept. 10 event, according to technology blog All Things D. (

Other than the fact that the phones will operate on the iOS7 system unveiled in June, very little is certain about what Apple has in store for the new iPhones. Most industry watchers agree the phone will likely include an upgraded camera and processor, in addition to a fingerprint sensor.

Some people also expect Apple to launch a new, lower-cost iPhone model to help the company compete on the lower end of the smartphone market, All Things D said. Other speculation includes a wider range of colors and bigger screens.
