An Apple event next week? Not so fast. According to All Things D, Cupertino will unveil its next iPhone on Oct. 4.
New CEO Tim Cook will do the honors, ATD said, citing sources "close to the situation." The blog does say, however, that "Apple could certainly change its plans anytime."
Going by past releases, that would put a new iPhone on store shelves by mid-October, which follows previous ATD reports of an October launch.

Engineering professor Kang Shin and doctoral student Xinyu Zhang said that smartphones, including the iPhone, spend up to 80 percent of their power-saving mode in idle listening state, which checks the network for incoming data. However, they also found that this idle listening mode often consumes just as much power as when the phones are fully awake.
