It is unknown if the special event will be for the next-generation iPhone 5S and/or the introduction of the long-rumored low-cost iPhone.
"The launch comes at an important time for Apple, which continues to make a lot of money from the iPhone but has seen its global market share dip amid a growing wave of lower-cost Android devices, as well as an intense battle with archrival Samsung," noted AllThingsD's Ina Fried.
The purported release date does is scheduled near the one-year anniversary of the iPhone 5's debut. The iPhone 5 was introduced to the world on Sept. 12 and went on sale approximately two weeks later.
As Latinos Post reported, Current Editorials announced Apple will sell the next iPhone on Sept. 27. The sale date would come two days after Apple rolls out iOS 7 on Sept. 25.
Latinos Post has been following projections by analysts. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously gave a late September forecast, but stated the low-cost iPhone might launch in early September instead.
Jefferies analyst Peter Misek said the next-generation Apple smartphone is likely to launch in either late September or early October.
Apple has not issued a comment in regards to the speculated Sept. 10 release date.
Latinos Post will have the latest updates and coverage on the launch of the next iPhone, whether it is Sept. 10 or not.
