Colourful banners go up at Apple HQ ahead of the iPhone 5S and 5C launch

There's not long to go now until Apple unveils the iPhone 5S and 5C. To mark the occasion, the tech giant has put up banners at its California headquarters featuring the same bright dots as the invite to its official launch event.

This colourful theme, along with the tagline "This should brighten everyone's day" suggests we'll see the launch of the wallet-friendly iPhone 5C, which should come in a range of bright colours. Check our analysis of the invitation for more amateur theorising.

The 5C is the more affordable of the two handsets to be announced, with a plastic casing compared to the 5S's aluminium. They should both run the iOS 7 operating system though.

A video leaked of the 5C recently, showing its touchscreen is just as responsive as the iPhone 5.

But the 5C isn't the only model said to introduce new colours to the iPhone range. Though the 5S's new tones are said to be more muted than the 5C's.

As well as the standard white and black (or white and graphite, rather), the 5S should come in champagne gold and gun-metal grey finishes.

Apple is also holding an event in China tomorrow, for the first time. Apple is increasingly focussing on developing markets: the iPhone only went on sale in China recently, and Apple is said to be in talks with China Mobile, the world's biggest mobile operator.

The iPhone 5C is expected to be aimed at these less mature markets, though it could go on sale here in the west as well.
