This year is seems rumors are heating up over two different Apple devices, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6. It’s strange to see two iPhone models being rumored at the same time, usually we see a ton of rumors about the next generation iPhone, not the next generation iPhone and the next next generation iPhone.
We’ve heard many reports claiming that the iPhone 5S would keep the current iPhone 5 design with some minor upgrades, and possibly a 12 megapixel rear camera. A new report from Chinese microblogging website Laoyaoba.com (via Brightwire) claims that the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6 has been spotted at Apple supply chains.
- A source told Chinese mobile phone information site Laoyaoba.com that he has seen the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 at Apple’s suppliers. Both models may be released in 2013, according to the website’s microblog on Thursday evening.
- The source noted that the iPhone 5S resembles the iPhone 5, and the five-inch iPhone 6 is lighter and thinner.
The report seems accurate enough with its speculation on the iPhone 5S, stating that the device will take on the iPhone 5 design. While the other half of the report claims the iPhone 6 will have close to a 5-inch screen, making it the largest display Apple has made on an iPhone. According to the publication, the iPhone 6 will also have a lighter and thinner design than the iPhone 5S, which is crazy due to the larger screen and the iPhone 5 already being incredibly thin.
While we can almost be certain that the iPhone 5S will be released this year, current rumors claim a release in June or July, the iPhone 6 isn’t rumored to be released until sometime in 2014. Previous reports have also claimed that the larger screen iPhone 6 would be a later model coming from Apple, just in case they feel the need to compete with Android’s larger screen devices.
A larger screen iPhone would be interesting, even though the screen on the current iPhone 5 is fantastic in our opinion. What do you guys think?
