Two new iPhones coming in September - report

Low-end and high-end models, obviously distinct

There will be not just one new iPhone launched by Apple in September but two, according to a report.

9to5Mac claims to have been tipped off by a source that has provided reliable information in the past that there will be two models which will be immediately distinctive from each other.

The low-end model will be aimed at taking on cheaper Android-based mobile handsets, according to the report, though no other details are given.

The high-end model will sport an all-new design and be obviously different in looks and feature set to the low-end model, the source claims, but again few other details are offered.

There have been a number of seemingly contradictory rumours about new iPhones circulating in recent months that could be explained by plans to launch two new models rather than one.

Reports about a new iPhone 4S, with only slight updates to the features and design of the iPhone 4 have disappointed those who were hoping for new bells and whistles in the next-generation iPhone. Conflicting reports about a thinner, lighter iPhone 5 with an 8-megapixel camera have also been circulating in recent days and weeks.

The latest report is also strengthened by comments made by Deutsche Bank's Chris Whitmore late last month that he expected Apple to launch both an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
