Rumor Has It: It's the end of the iPhone 5S rumors as we know it

2:31 /

Apple sent out invites for its event next week. In honor of the end of this round of speculations, I go over all the iPhone 5S and 5C rumors we know so far. Also, the PlayStation could make you look like a crazy person.

KARYNE: Hey, I�m Karyne Levy. Welcome to Rumor Has It! The show that rounds up the week's biggest tech rumors. You can vote on what you think about the rumors, too, in the interactive player if you're watching on CNET. This week we've got a quickie about the PlayStation, but more importantly: iPhone iPhone iPhone. Let us begin! STORY 1: First, as competition heats up between Microsoft and Sony, Sony is said to be adding voice recognition to its PlayStation 4, according to Polygon. The feature will be included in the PlayStation Eye, a separate $60 accessory. It's reportedly similar to Microsoft's Xbox One Kinect 2 capabilities, in that it has facial recognition technology and can follow navigational voice commands. So now all you Microsoft users won't be the only ones yelling at your TV. Everyone can look like crazy people together, no matter what system you use. STORY 2: And finally, this is it, everyone. Apple sent an invite for its September 10 event. Because of this, we might not have a Rumor Has It next week -- because I'll be too busy crying. So here's a roundup of what we suspect will happen: We think two phones will be announced: the iPhone 5S, which is an update of the 5, and a lower-cost 5C. With the 5S, we know it'll have iOS 7, but that's about it. It could come in 3 or even 4 colors; it might have a bigger screen; it might have a fingerprint reader; and it most likely will have the new A7 chip. People want NFC, including myself, but so far all signs point to� maybe. Most of what we think we know about the 5C is that it'll come in pink, yellow, blue and green, and it could have a plastic case. Some people have speculated that it won't include Siri and it may be for emerging markets. Again, we don't know that the 5C will even be announced, but the event invite, which looks like a game of Dots, hints at something colorful and all those leaked pictures we've been seeing are totally convincing. I think that the 5C is definitely going to happen. What do you guys think? To find out for sure, tune in to CNET.com next week for live coverage on Tuesday morning, September 10. KARYNE: That�s our show everyone, share your rumors at rumorhasit@cnet.com or call us at 1-800-750-CNET. And tweet us! See you in a couple weeks!
