  • Report: iPhone 5S Coming June 20th


    Apple is reportedly in the final stages of making plans to introduce the next-generation iPhone in June.

    Reverting back to the days of an early-summer iPhone launch, Apple's 5S model is now poised to be released on June 20, just eight-months after the iPhone 5 was bestowed upon the global marketplace.

    Of course, the early launch won't come as a surprise given the huge push that Samsung's new Galaxy S4 is getting today. Understandably, Apple doesn't want to take an extended backseat to Samsung's eagerly anticipated new smartphone.

    MacFan, a Japanese Apple fanzine, was first to announce the rumored June date of the next iPhone launch. According to the same report, the iPhone 5S will ship in July. Gene Munster and other leading industry analysts have heard the same chatter out of Asia's supply chain and concur with the rumored June rollout of Apple's refreshed iPhone.

    Today's report did not provide any clues as to new hardware attributes or the role iOS 7 could play in the iPhone 5S introduction.

      People, lets be real here:

      1, there will never be a cheap version of iPhone. They already have them in the case of older models.

      2, the screen is not getting any bigger. Apple prides itself on the screen being ergonomically designed to be able to reach your thumb across the entire theme.

      3, iOS is crafted to work with specific hardware. Older models are difficult enough to adapt to, they certainly aren't going to add different sets of hardware.

      4, apple will never cater to JB tweaks.

      Apple is not google or Samsung, accept it or move on.

There are several things I don't like about the S3. My god the screen is super sexy though.
      I feel ya. The app quality isn't on par with apple.

      Where are all the lunatics spouting it'll be called the iPhone 7 ? They were fun when they thought the iPhone 5 would be called the iPhone 6.

      oh wow!! great another iphone to be released and another one that is going to look the same like the last one.....wow!!! I can't wait.

      it's time for a massive exodus.

      I wonder what would happen if the next iphone looked like the HTC ONE with full 1080p screen and 441dpi and also a micro sd slot.......IF ONLY!! The clamor for it would be unmatched.

      To me Htc One is the most beautiful phone ever made.

      After the painful wait for a jb for the 5 I will be sure to wait for a jb for the 5S to upgrade. The lack of any real innovation has me hesitating on the thought to begin with. I love my i5, does everything I want as fast as I want. Now that speeds are where they should be its time for facial recognition, fingerprint unlocking, and selections without physically touching the screen. Siri needs to amp up its usefulness too.
      So what you are saying is you want it to have a bunch of gimmicky features like Android? Have you seen how dumb it is to hold your finger over the phone to make a selection? I will stick with my features that actually work.

      Galaxy S4 with iOS 7 would be nice.

      The cake is a lie. This is what they said about the iPhone 5 last year and look what happened.. It comes out 4 months later after June.

      Why release something that is just a minor update as all 's' versions have been. Why not take a leaf out of the samsung book and go for big improvement as in the Galaxy S4. Apple is slowly loosing the market lead and without some forward thinking the collapse will be rapid

      Gimmicky as they might be, in actuality the features work perfectly fine. Not all too practical though.

      I just want a bigger iPhone. I'd return to Apple in an instant. The S4 is pretty whack IMO. All the hardware is neat, the screen is amazing. But there is nothing on the phone my Note II can't do. Sort of a lackluster release if you ask me. And, it's ugly.

I'm torn between just keeping my 4S for a quite a bit longer or possibly grabbing the S4 some time this summer.

      I totally understand what you are describing. I cant tell you how many times I have talked my self out of getting a Samesong. I love my iPhone, but this screen has really had havoc on my eyes. If the next phone doesn't increase in size, i will have to make a tough decision.

      The OS looks like the OS of a track phone.

      i believe there will almost certainly be a cheap version released this year - but I could be wrong.

      They have already ruined the ergonomics. Hopefully they will go back to the 'proper' screen size.

      They probably will ad new hardware features - again, I could be wrong.

      I'll wait for the i6 to come out before updating my i5 I can't see the 5s having anything that major for me to update
