Unscratchable Screen Tops List Of iPhone Rumors

Today is the beginning of what is, unofficially, new smartphone launch month.

HTC kicked it off in New York, and over the next couple of weeks, Samsung, Motorola and Microsoft will all have their big unveilings. The last — and most highly anticipated — will be Apple, which is set to release its new iPhone on September 9.

As always, rumors are running rampant. Will there be an unscratchable screen? A two-way reversible USB cable? Significantly more storage?

Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson talks to Ina Freed, senior editor with Re/code, about Apple and the expectations for the new iPhone.
