iPhone 5S event preview: How Apple will attempt to brighten our day

On September 10, at 10am Pacific Time, Apple will hold their first major product event since October of 2012, and only their second event of 2013, following the developer-centric WWDC Keynote.

The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S continued that trend, bringing support for broader carriers and faster speeds, better displays and new, natural language interfaces. iPhone took manufacturing to new levels and the screen to new heights, but most importantly it set the stage for what's coming next - iOS 7 and the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, and more.
