Now we know for sure when the iPhone 5S and, potentially, the iPhone 5C will be unveiled attention will doubtless turn to when the next-gen Apple handsets will actually go on sale.
Following the confirmation from Cupertino that it's next iPhone launch will take place on September 10, reports in the UK suggested the devices will arrive at retailers on September 20 and September 27.
Those two dates, mentioned in The Telegraph's report on Tuesday afternoon, have been mooted in the past but the paper's sources in the courier industry (of all places) appear to add a little more credence.
Tuesday's report follows up and earlier claim from the Telegraph that stores are being told to prepare to display two different iPhone devices that will arrive on two different dates.
If the Telegraph's stories come to fruition, the smart money would be on the iPhone 5S being first to arrive on Friday September 20.
That would mean the heavily-tipped, cheaper iPhone 5C would be a safer bet to go on sale a week later on Friday 27.
The dual release dates would likely be great news for Apple, virtually ensuring two huge retail days with the traditional lines-around-the-block at its official stores around the world.
It's highly unlikely that the company will confirm the release dates before its keynote event at the Moscone Center in San Francisco next Tuesday, so we'll have to wait and see.
