When was iPhone 5 released? Sometime this year right? Well, I won’t bother to check the exact date but I think many of you are still parading the precious iPhone 5 in front of your friends after spending one month of your salary on the brand new Apple’s smartphone.
Ok guys, guess what?
According to media report, Apple will release the Apple iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 sometime in September 2013.
With that, Apple will break its tradition of releasing ONE new iPhone model each year. Apple is reportedly getting ready to release two new iPhone models for the very first time – the sixth-generation iPhone called the iPhone 5S, and a completely new “low-cost” iPhone model aimed at emerging markets, to be called either iPhone Light or iPhone 6.
Of course there are reasons why rumours are fast spreading about the new iPhone or shall I say iPhones.
Apart from the release of those allegedly leaked photos of iPhone 5s dan 6, there is also the iOS 7 factor that keeps the tech world buzzing about the new iPhone. The new iOS 7 is set for September launching and many believe that Apple would never release its newest iOS without some new hardware to go with it.
This is why we can fully expect Apple to release the iPhone 5S just two days after the release date for iOS 7, on Sept. 20. The low-cost iPhone 6, Apple may have to wait a week or two, on either Sept. 27 or Oct. 4 – the latter date would coincide with the two-year anniversary of the iPhone 4S, and nearly two years to the day when Apple lost its co-founder, Steve Jobs to cancer.
The iPhone 5S
The iPhone 5S is said to look identical to its predecessor the iPhone 5, with the exception of a few cosmetic changes. The biggest new feature inside the iPhone 5S, by all account, is said to be the integrated fingerprint sensor embedded directly in the “home” button, which will likely replace the need for entering usernames and passwords again and again on your phone.
This fingerprint sensor – courtesy of Florida-based AuthenTec, which was urgently acquired by Apple last July -makes a great deal of sense on the iPhone 5S: The iPhone has always had one button, so the fingerprint’s sensor makes sense, but Apple knew fingerprint sensing technology would be a hit with consumers a long time ago, so the company invested millions of dollars to start implementing this technology as soon as possible.
As for iPhone 6, Apple is reportedly pursuing its same strategy used for the iPod Touch, which is to release a low-end version of the popular iDevice with all of the same important features, but without some of the bells and whistles, and at a much lower price point.
Apple released its cheapest, thinnest, most basic iPod Touch in May, likely foreshadowing its strategy with the release of iPhone 6.
