Apple release their new generation iPhone on Sept.10th, these two new iphone named iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. These two new generation iPhone is the same as iPhone5, whch disappointed many people who expect iPhone 5s will hav a larger screen.

Apple Inc. AAPL -2.28% introduced two newiPhones on Tuesday in an effort to  expand the company's reach into new marketswhile solidifying its foothold in  high-end smartphones.

Apple's handset lineup will include aless-expensive model, called the  iPhone 5C, at $99 for 16 gigabytes with atwo-year wireless-service contract, as  well as with a new high-end phone calledthe iPhone 5S, at $199 for 16 GB with a  contract. Both phones can be purchasedSept. 20 in the U.S. and other countries,  including China. Customers can orderthe 5C starting Friday.

The iPhone 5S-in luxury-styled gold, silverand dark gray-will include a  fingerprint scanner called Touch ID that allowsusers to unlock their phones or  make purchases from Apple's iTunes store bytouching the home button.

The question for Apple now is whether a one-two punch of the new software  and hardware can help it regain market share. Apple sold more than 380 million  iPhones, but it has slipped from the world's most popular smartphone to second  place behind devices made by Samsung, which represented more nearly 32% of  world-wide sales in the second quarter, up from about 30% a year earlier,  according to industry researcher Gartner. Apple, meanwhile, represented about  14%, down from nearly 19% a year prior.
