Apple’s Big iPhone Event is Coming… It’s Going to Be a Dud – CCN Markets

A round-up of the iPhone rumors suggests that Apple will put three cameras at the back of its pricier models. But this isn’t something you want to brag about as cheaper devices from Chinese rivals are already rocking three – sometimes four – cameras.

The new iPhone models are expected to look like last year’s offerings, and there seems to be a lot of deliberation the paint schemes that Apple could offer this time.
