Lending further support to the late 2012 claims that Apple will begin to refresh the iPhone more than just one time annually, today we're hearing reports from the far east that Apple will likely deliver the iPhone 5S as well as the iPhone 6 before 2013 comes to an end.
Citing knowledgeable Chinese sources, BrightWire published news on Friday of Apple's purported plan to potentially serve up two iPhone refreshes this calendar year.
A source told Chinese mobile phone information site Laoyaoba.com that he has seen the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 at Apple's suppliers.
"The source noted that the iPhone 5S resembles the iPhone 5, and the five-inch iPhone 6 is lighter and thinner," the BrightWire report reads.
Word of the two forthcoming iPhone models first surfaced in Sina Tech, which is the technology-related news division of Chinese news juggernaut Sina.com.
