iPhone 5S Rumored to Launch By June 2013

Posted on January 3rd, 2013 by

If you're already bored with the iPhone 5 you purchased last fall and are counting down the days until you can "re-up" to the newest model, fret not, Apple addict! Reports are circling that the iPhone 5S will hit stores sometime in May or June 2013. This version is reported to "represent a huge departure from earlier models" in that it will offer different screen sizes as well as color patterns outside the usual black or white options.

The new iPhone 5S.

The iPhone 4 and 4S had a 3.5-inch screen while the iPhone 5 boasts a 4-inch screen, but it's unclear so far what the 5S screen size options will be. (Bigger and standard? Smaller and standard?) The rumored colors for the new model include white/silver, black/slate, yellow, blue, and pink. I'm not sure if there will be any new features other than basic hardware changes, so it's too early to tell whether the iPhone 5S will be worth the upgrade unless you've been dying for an Apple phone that matches your fuchsia purse.

Are you excited about the rumored release of the iPhone 5S, or will you stick with your current model?
