We're expecting to see the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C

Apple's iPhone event has been officially confirmed for September 10 in its hometown of Cupertino.

According to the invitations sent to the press, the September 10 event will primarily focus on new iPhone offerings and will take place at 10 a.m. PST at the Apple Campus in Cupertino, California.

The event is expected to unveil the successor to the iPhone 5, which could possibly be named the iPhone 5S. The 5S should have a faster processor, an improved camera and even a gold color option. 

For the first time ever, Apple is expected to present two iPhones at one event. The second is the iPhone 5C (stands for iPhone 5 color), which is considered the budget iPhone. It will have the same internals as the iPhone 5, but will feature a plastic backing that could come in multiple colors as well as a price tag of $99.

The event invitation's cover says "This should brighten everyone's day" with a bunch of colorful dots. This likely refers to the fact that the iPhone 5C will be colorful, and that the iPhone 5S got a new color option as well. 

Color is also a key change behind the Apple's upcoming version of its mobile operating system, iOS 7. Apple showed the new OS off back at its Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC) in June, where we caught an early glimpse of  iOS 7's dramatic redesign in regards to the look of the icons and menu. The color scheme is much brighter and gone is the skeumorphic design of icons attempting to mimic real-world objects. Many have described it as "flatter" but with a new sense of depth thanks to layers and the frosted glass effect.

The new OS also has some improvements like Control Center (allows you to swipe up from the bottom of the screen to quickly access Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/Screen brightness etc.), AirDrop (allows you to quickly share files with friends that are nearby), FaceTime audio (high quality voice-only calls over Wi-Fi), Notifications Sync (if you dismiss a notification on your iPhone, it is also dismissed on your iPad), and “iOS in the Car." Siri also got a boost with new, high-quality female and male voices.

"I'm going back to Apple, my Android experience was a failure"

Android really isn't a good option for users that make bad choices in cheap phones and then don't have the time or skill to work with it. iPhone probably is the best option for you.

"Time or skill to work with it"

A finished product needs time and skill to make it an enjoyable experience??

When I go out and buy a car, I make sure to buy one that requires hours of training and expertise to enjoy.

You are so far from getting it, you don't even know what you arent getting. Think MS paint vs Photoshop. Anyone can launch paint and use it. Photoshop takes some time to learn all of its features. IOS = Paint, Android = Photoshop.

My comment above is basically saying that guy is too simple for Photoshop and would be better served by Paint. The iPhone is a well build very fast phone that is extremely well suited for the non-technical user. That is a good thing, and obviously highly profitable. As for technical merit? It's years behind.
