Almost a year has passed since Apple announced its iPhone 5, which gave a beginning to the never ending rumors of iPhone 5s. Recently we heard from some sources that Sharp would be manufacturing 5s panel in June and if the recently leaked blurry images on the internet by Mac Rumors confirm to be true then the next iPhone will have a dual-LED flash.
For the curious, we hate breaking your hearts. The much awaited iPhone 5s launch has been delayed due to some technical reasons. According to the sources the launch was due sometime soon this year but now it has been postponed to October due to shortage of retina displays.
If Apple follows their typical release schedule, the new iPhone will be available sometime this summer, and the rumors are already flying about what that’s going to contain. With rival phones from Android stepping up their game, will Apple feel the pressure to do something completely new and spectacular? Maybe it’ll be like the 4S, which made small improvements to the iPhone 4 but didn’t break out of the mold too much. Nobody really knows, as Apple hasn’t provided us with any official information yet, but there are some of the speculated changes.
Citigroup, you know the investment bank guys, well according to a report of theirs that the China Times got their hands on Apple will unveil its iPhone 5S in early September along with a low-cost model for emerging markets. The note also says that 2013 will mark the first time Apple will introduce not one, but two fresh iPhone versions. Both the iPhone 5S and the cheaper version will launch in September.
According to two sources that have been reliable in the past, Apple will be holding its iPhone 5S launch event on June 20th. The rumor comes from Japanese periodical MacFan, which says they have learned from trusted sources that Apple is unveiling their next generation iPhone, alongside a cheaper model in June. Apple has launched their last two iPhone’s in the fall, but all of the models before that were launched in the summer.
