This week may be all about IFA Berlin, but Apple has given tech fans something else to think about - a new iPhone?

The next iPhone is widely expected to be launched on September 10 after Apple sent out invites to an event at its Cupertino base in the US.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the office aren't much fun, and Apple hoped news of the event would cheer us all up.

The invite read: "This should brighten everyone's day" and was peppered with colourful polka dots which has further fuelled speculation about a cheaper iPhone coming in colours other than black or white.

The rumour mill has been delivering breathless reports of a second, cheaper handset - dubbed the iPhone 5C - which could come in different colours.

Back in June Apple unveiled the next version of its mobile operating system, iOS 7.

The new OS boasts features designed to make the most of the entire screen, something which is said to make the handset feel bigger.

iOS 7 features a cleaner, flatter design and Apple chief executive Tim Cook described it as "the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of the iPhone".
