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:

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.

Would take some getting used to to have yellow/red/blue iphone hah.
Would be nice if it were 128GB option, would make sense they would make the 16GB offering a 32 instead.

I can see possibly more storage and a couple different colors. However, until the screen gets wider, I will personally be passing it up. My eyesight sucks and I need a bigger screen. I'm holding out on getting a Samsung though. I can be patient.

I'm officially on the "S" train. I used to be a "first version buyer" but ever since I bought a 4S when they came out, I have decided to wait out the bugs and wait for better hardware of the "S" versions. 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.

Everyone knows the next iPhone will be called the iPhone 6...not the 5S.

I'm looking at all this and thinking this, "NFC, new processor, and more space. But everything else is so highly unlikely. But it isn't unlike apple to make a piece of junk decent after a rehash."

How about they just add one row of pixels to the screen so we have true 16x9?

1 thing that it should come with - Cydia!

Im all for the NFC and colors..i mean i've been wanting that for years. What I don't understand is the need for more storage?? With all of the cloud options we have, who really wants to store and bog down your phone locally? I would rather use cloud storage myself. I know people are suspect about cloud storage but if they want to know whats on your phone, im sure they have ways of finding out :]

I feel like adding colors will undermine the sleek and sophisticated feel that has always given iPhone the aesthetic edge over other smartphones. It's okay with iPod Touches because they are primarily purchased for children, or as secondary multimedia devices. I don't know, that doesn't sit well with me, especially if they keep going up the pastel route. Yuck. It's like Easter every day. No thanks.
And I don't understand the obsession with NFC. It's only as useful as its adoption rate. It's like living in Venice and wanting an SUV.
