Apple is preparing to launch a faster version of its most selling product iPhone in September which will come with stronger chip for processing data and a more advanced camera, as reported by Bloomberg today, citing two people familiar with the plans.

According to the reports, the new iPhone will include the A5 processor, the more powerful chip that Apple added to the iPad 2 earlier this year, along with an 8-megapixel camera, up from 5-megapixel camera in iPhone 4.

Apple is also testing a new version of the iPad that has a higher resolution screen, the report said, adding a cheaper version of the iPhone aimed at developing countries is also in the works.

The new phone will run the iOS 5 operating system Apple previewed at a developer’s conference this month. Codenamed “Telluride,” it will feature already-announced features such as improved messaging and photo-sharing, one person said. It’s also designed to run on all of Apple’s mobile devices, this person said. Until late last year, iPads, iPhones and iPod touches used slightly different versions of iOS.

Shares of Apple rose 0.37 percent, or 1.20 points, to $326.50 a share on Wednesday.
