Chris Whitmore who is an analyst at Deutsche Bank has released a report stating that Apple are due to release two iPhone versions this September.

Whitmore also went on to state that Apple may actually be trying to capitalize on struggling smartphone platfors such as Blackberry, Nokia and RIMM in a bid to win over a different range of customers.
The iPhone 5 is set to be the direct successor to the iPhone 4 with the iPhone 4S meeting the needs of the lower end customers. It is thought that the iPhone 4S will be a prepaid cell phone priced at $350 with plans that are similar to the ones found on the iPad today. This will allow users to pay for the data or calls that they require when they need them.
