Apple has reportedly set in motion plans to ship two iPhone models -- at the high and low ends -- early next month, according to a published report, which notes the dual launch would mark the first time Apple has introduced more than one iPhone model at a time. It is also believed that Apple, which usually brings its handsets to market less than two weeks after unveiling them, is putting a metal casing on its standard model and also will offer a gold-toned iPhone, according to several Internet reports, which say the color could prove especially popular to high-end buyers in markets like China.
