Hey Apple fans, the millions upon millions of you. Your favourite phone (the Sony Xperia Z?) is getting a lick of fresh paint. It’s been widely rumoured that today, Apple will be launching the update to the iPhone 5, the 5S and a budget iPhone, known by many as the 5C. These names could be wrong, but we’re thinking back to when an iDevice wasn’t correctly predicted before launch and… nope. We’re drawing a blank. Apple always leaks out its products. First it’s a trickle, then it’s a flood.

We’ve written a rumour round-up for the blessed event, but you came for the real deal. As soon as the event starts, we’ll translate the absolute marketing rubbish for you into pleasing, bite-sized chunks of iPhone joy. Sit back and relax, the event will update in real-time.
