The iPhone 5S rumours will just not go away. We are firm believers that there is no smoke without fire, so we know that the iPhone 5S is coming, or maybe it will be called the iPhone 6, but one thing is for certain, we are getting a new iPhone handset from Apple in 2013.
Today we have been given a new load of reports and these ones seem to narrow down the release date for the latest iPhone model, while it also hints at the next iOS version. Ming-Chi Kuo, a respected analyst with a track record of getting things spot on has said that Apple will announce the much anticipated iPhone 5S in June and that it will then put the device on release in July of this year. That means just a few short months of waiting for all you Apple die-hards out there.
It was previously thought that Apple would release the next iPhone in September, to keep with its new autumn release schedule. However, the company is worried that it will give too much ground to rivals like Samsung’s Galaxy S4, HTC’s One, and Sony’s Xperia Z. To combat this, the Cupertino based company will bring forward its release of the iPhone 5S to the summer time.
New spec details include a fingerprint reader as an added security feature, while an Apple A7 processor which would make the iPhone 5S more powerful that the iPad 4. Apple is also set to out iOS 7 in June and package it on the iPhone 5S in July.
Another theory is that Apple will launch the iPhone 5S in June/July and will then release the iPhone 6 in the autumn, but would the company risk the wrath of consumers by releasing two flagships just 3 months apart?
