  • Analyst: iPhone 5S in June 2013 With NFC, 128GB Storage, Colors, Better Camera


    We know. The iPhone 5 just came out. But that isn’t stopping Apple – at least not from an analyst’s point of view.

    According to an analyst by the name of Peter Misek, the iPhone 5S is expected to arrive back on track for Apple’s usual iPhone release time – the middle of the year in June or July of 2013. For the most part, it would look a lot like the iPhone 5, however the analyst points out some new features the iPhone 5S would have that would set it apart from the iPhone 5:

    For one, it is believed that the iPhone 5S would adopt the color lineup of the iPod touch 5G, bringing all kinds of colored anodized aluminum options to the iPhone for the first time, such as blue, yellow, red, and others on top of the white and black options. Colors are something that users have requested for a while, but at the time it just seemed strange to do with an iPhone. On the other hand, with all the younger hands getting their hands on an iPhone nowadays, it could be a good selling point.

    Misek also sees the possibility of a 128GB storage option, which would offer the greatest amount of storage an iPhone has ever come with. Apple shattered the iPhone storage record in 2011 by offering a 64GB option with the iPhone 4S, so this is entirely possible. It would be plausible because media is growing in size with its higher quality, especially with the iPhone's latest 8-megapixel camera, which records video in full 1080p.

    What else? – NFC technology is being brought up again as a possibility. It’s also pointed out that we might be seeing an IGZO display, which would increase the quality of the display. Apart from these changes, some other obvious changes that we've seen in nearly every iPhone release are also expected, such as a better battery and better camera.

    Many people are probably going to want to wait out and see if Apple releases a redesigned iPhone after the iPhone 5S (if Apple even names it that) in order to put their money into newer technology that isn’t basically the same iPhone design with an internal hardware upgrade. Some, on the other hand, just won't be able to hold back their shopping habits.

      Totally agree. I'm all for options so I guess I don't care if they decide to offer it, but I won't be buying it. I ALWAYS bought the largest size they had until the iPhone 5. I got a 32gb and it's not even halfway full. I hardly store any music on it (iTunes Match FTW!) and don't have huge games on it so I've got plenty of free space. NFC would be pretty dope as I can think of some really cool uses for it.

I really hope I'm not forced to begin looking at Android or Windows phones (I should burn my hand for typing that). It'll be a sad day if/when we hear Jailbreaking is a pleasure of the past.
      +1 took the words right out of my mouth. I do love my iphone and I can be patient but I too have been spoiled with jail breaking

      Absolutely no way will they be changing the screen on the next version, not after all the hoopla over the redesigned screen on this current version. Maybe in 2014, but not for this next design cycle.

      What about the AFC? I cant see putting the NFC on the iPhone without the AFC. That would be like putting the National League on but not putting the American League...

      That maybe true, but if you increase the font sizes or use any of the accessibility zooming functions. You can still see more on the screen since it is bigger.

      If the 5S gets these upgrades then it'd be the best "S" upgrade we've seen. NFC seems far fetched tho, colors would be nice, new storage options sounds reasonable, the screen seems unlikely tho and a better camera makes sense (same as the 4S). thing with all the iPhone launches, the iPhone X is always more anticipated then the iPhone XS model even though the S model is always worth the wait. I mean look at the iPhone 4 vs the 4S and 3G vs 3GS the S brings ina lot of good stuff but the general media doesn't notice that as much. Ill probably get the 5S and won't wait for the 6 since the S model usually is way less flawed.

      Cloud requires data. Data costs money. Local storage is just that. I'm blessed with unlimited data for now, but not everyone is so lucky.

      Cloud storage is a fail for multiple reasons. To name a few:

      1. Cloud storage is not free.
      2. Cloud storage uses wireless data that is not free.
      3. Cloud storage is accessible to a third party.
      4. Cloud storage is not guaranteed to be 100% accessible, making your data completely inaccessible during network outages or when other unfortunate events occur.
      5. Cloud storage requires the transfer of data over a network connection, requiring more power than simply reading from local flash ram and thus shortening battery life.

      lol, really? you do know that a 128GB phone is already on the market don't you?

      your eyesight sucks and you need a bigger screen but you wont buy a phone with a bigger screen because you want to keep an iPhone? makes no sense.

      So now Apple wants to copy HTC. Ha ha!

      I want a bigger screen and I don't want any other type of phone. However, I don't want a phone that is taller, but not wider. It's the principle of it, to me. I am 6'3. My thumb can easily reach any corner of screen. I am not going to spend a dime on a phone that doesn't really help me, or create value for me.

      As for my eyesight, it does suck. That is why I barely use my 4s for anything. You should see the font size I use. Lol.

      I can be patient and I will wait for the ip6 I'm sure Apple will go wider with the design because that's the way Apple does business.

      i hope you are joking. The iPhone 5 camera blows away the S3. I took pic with a friends S3 and then my iphone 5 and there was a noticeable quality difference.

I will probably get a 5S or whatever they call it, then wait again for the second incarnation of the iPhone 6 (6S?). But thats just me.
      +1 like intel's tick-tock, i'm def a firm believer in Apple's "tock"
