At Apple's September 12 press conference in the Yerba Beuna Center for the Arts, expect an iPhone 5 price announcement that mirrors the iPhone 4S's cost gradations. The usually reliable Apple rumor website, 9to5mac, reports that the 16GB, 32GB, and 64 GB versions of the new smartphone will launch at $199, $299, and $399 respectively. New iPhone accessories will likely be on shelves on its rumored September 21 launch as well.

The iPhone 5 will run on iOS 6, which is expected to launch tomorrow. iOS 6 will be supported by the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2, the new iPad, and the fourth gen iPad touch, Its features include improved Facebook integration, a Passbook feature for digital transactions, a live 3D map system, an updated Siri, and upgraded instant share options for photos, maps, websites, and apps. The OS also includes a "Do Not Disturb" feature that puts a stop to notifications.
Yet, the iPhone 5 isn't the only thing that consumers are getting a price quote on. According to ABC News, sites that buy technology off of users have seen an exponential spike in their businesses.
Gazelle is one such business. Anthony Scarsell, the company's Chief Gadget Officer, said that "This is the biggest anticipated launch in a long time. People know it is coming and it's been a very busy time for us."
