In a little over a week, Apple will unveil its next iPhone device a schedule press event on Sept. 10. Now rumors are circulating that the device will be made available for purchase 10 days later.

Over the weekend multiple Apple Store employees leaked the fact that Apple has implemented vacation blackout dates from Sept. 20-22. Similar blackout dates have been used in the past for the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 release dates, and now experts expect the next iPhone to be released during the time frame.

Apple has still not confirmed which device will be made available next, but it is commonly believed to be either the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6.

A second iPhone has also been rumored called the iPhone 5C. The iPhone 5C is expected to be a cheaper option compared to either the iPhone 5S or the iPhone 6.

Some features that have been rumored for the next device include fingerprint scanner, a 4.7-inch display, and more than two color options like a graphite and gold phone.

Apple will also release iOS 7 on Sept. 10 after first announcing it back in June. iOS 7 has been through five different beta tests since being unveiled.

This weekend Apple launched a new program that will allow Apple users to trade in their old iPhones at Apple stores for credit towards a new phone.

The max that Apple will credit someone for a device is $280 according to the Wall Street Journal. Store credit must be used for a new iPhone, not another device like the Samsung Galaxy S4 or Nokia Lumia 1020.

Make sure to check back as more information gets released and on Sept. 10 after the next iPhone, possible iPhones, are unveiled.
