Entry level iPhone 5C 8GB to be launched tomorrow
Two UK mobile operators leaked information to Coolsmartphone stating that the new low-cost iPhone 5C 8GB is already in stock and ready to ship in the operator’s stores throughout the country.

iPhone 6 latest rumors : Ultra-Retina screen and 3 new sensor
Warning : we will not spend an entire week with a new iPhone 6 rumor ! This week-end emerged reports stating that :

That is not so Apple-like. I don’t really by this one but in the meantime Sonny Dickson has relayed it and he came with accurate insider information about Apple’s products in the past.
