In other news, Apple and #Accenture (a management consulting company) recently announced that they will team up to build better business applications for iOS.
The New York Times is reporting that the latest iPhone will start at a price of $999 (£780).
Apple might remove the iconic physical home button of the device and replace it with a virtual button.

It was Sindhu's third medal at the World Championships, with a bronze apiece from the 2013 and 2014 editions in her bag. Commenting about her next encounter with Chen, Sindhu said: "She is a good player and she is playing well".
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo - who has a long track record of accurate predictions of Apple products - predicts the phone will have a revolutionary 3D sensing camera for facial recognition, which will work with Apple's new augmented reality software.
One of the features that Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is rumored to be bringing to its upcoming iPhones, which are reportedly set to be unveiled to the public in about two weeks, is so-called "wireless charging".
New rumours indicate that in an effort to accommodate the predicted removal of the home button and a almost bezel-less display, Apple could be planning to utilize the new screen "notch" that sits between the phone's camera and its sensors in a unique way. A new patent from the company describes how it may do this.
If true this would be the biggest change in iPhone design since the launch of the device in 2007. The iPhone 8's display said to be flat, and won't have curved edges like the ones feature on the Samsung Galaxy S8.
The reason why Apple is able to price iPhone 8 at $999 without scaring customers away is because iPhone 8 will sport a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display. The bottom of the iPhone 8's display will show a thin bar. The report also claims that, due to the limited space on the status bar, the information it displays could change on a per-task basis. And the device's announcement will most likely be paired with the announcement of updated iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models, traditionally branded as "S" devices to indicate the hardware revision.
