  • iPhone 5S Production Beginning This Quarter Says WSJ


    The Wall Street Journal is reporting that plans to introduce the iPhone 5S in early summer are moving along as planned, with production of the next-gen device set to begin any time now.

    On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Q2 production of the iPhone 5S is now all but certain.

    Apple Inc. plans to begin production of a refreshed iPhone similar in size and shape to its current one in the second quarter of the year, according to people familiar with the device's production, teeing up a possible summer launch for the next version of its flagship device.
    While the iPhone 5S begins rolling off of the assembly lines over the next few months, Apple will reportedly continue working with its manufacturing partners in Asia to ready the "less expensive iPhone" for launch this fall.

    "The four-inch device will likely use a different casing from the higher-end iPhone," sources tell the WSJ. "Apple has been working on different color shells for the phone but its plans remain unclear."

    It goes without saying that an Apple spokesperson refused to comment on the story.

      What do u mean by "come out"? It's been out. I'm using iPhone 11 on iOS 12. Don't tell me they skipped you on all the other releases.

      The Apple rumors tend to be true, since they are leaked by Apple. How many beta phones have been found at bars or whatever? The people "in the know" are given some of the secrets to sprinkle on the public..gets us all worked up. Name me one iPhone that didn't sell..i'll be waiting. Whether you, me or the next guy buys it, it will still sell very well. I skipped the 5, so I'm in favor of purchasing the 5S.

      Judging by going from the ip4S to the ip5, except for the screen size, there wasn't a huge leap in functionality. I'd say the ip5S will prolly be a lot better than the ip5 and comparable to the ip6 when it's all said and done. The only thing the ip6 will have is a new design and slightly noticeable hardware improvements.
