Gold iPhone 5S hardware dummy appears aside standard black and white

This week we've heard more than one unofficial confirmation that the iPhone 5S would be launched with three color models - and today we're seeing the whole lot. According to sources - the anonymous kind - speaking on the iPhone 5S launch coming up soon (as soon as September 10th, as it were), the device is set to be sent out in white, black, and gold.

Intel smartphone and tablet chip roadmap leaks: Bay Trail-T the star for Android

iPad mini 2 housing leaks aside iPad 5

Though the changes appear to be few, the next-generation casings for both the iPad 5 and the iPad mini 2 appear to be hitting the factory floor with bits and pieces all their own. This double dose of Apple hardware - if it does indeed prove to be legitimate, shows the iPad family to be making a few aesthetic changes while it improves its innards - innards which we've been hypothesizing are getting incremental updates this Fall. The first of these changes comes in the Apple logo.

One such example is a report by The Wall Street Journal this evening, which spoke to former U.S. officials and sources familiar with technology they say the FBI uses to spy on suspects.
