We all know that the new iPhones are just around the corner. What that means is that it is high time someone created a parody on the new devices' welcome video and uploaded it on YouTube. You see, each time Apple releases its new smartphone or tablet, someone shots a clip that makes fun of either gadget itself, or the fans waiting for the release date, or whatever else.
This year is not an exception - below you can see a short iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C introductory video. People, who look almost just like the actual Apple’s engineers and executives (I’m joking, of course), tell us the story about what do the the letters “S” and “C” mean.

According to the KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is planning to launch the iPad 5 and iPad mini in the last quarter of 2013. Apart from that, Kuo thinks we should expect the arrival of something like a ‘lower cost iPad mini’ in 2014.
A new video was uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday that compares the touch screen digitizer and rear casing of a would-be iPad 5 with the current iPad 4.

The main reason for such fall is probably the mass production of cheap Android smartphones and tablets that become more and more popular in Europe and Asia. Looks like things aren’t so good for the company from Cupertino.
According to survey results released Sunday, iOS' share of Web usage hit an all-time low of 54.9% in August, down 11 percentage points (16.7%) from the 65.9% it held in August 2012. Android, meanwhile, surged to 28.1% from 21% last year, up 7.1 points (34.3%).
Anyway, there’re still some chances for Apple to get out of serious troubles. Yes, I’m now talking about the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C releases as well as about the two new iPads, which are expected to be unveiled this fall.

According to information provided by Bloomberg, Apple will unveil both iPhones and new iPads on September 10th. Previously it was widely believed that the iPads will be presented on a special event in October.
Apple, based in Cupertino, California, plans to introduce new versions of its phone and tablet at a Sept. 10 event, a person familiar with the matter has said, and the company promised “several more game changers” in the product pipeline as it tries to fend off Samsung Electronics Co. and Chinese makers selling cheaper handsets.
