iPhone 5S rumors already here Just two months after they released the iPhone 5, there are already rumors about the alleged iPhone 5S.
Supposedly, the company will release the updated device in the first quarter of 2013, with full commercial production beginning in January.

As early supply, Apple will manufacture between 50,000 and 100,000 units next month.

While unlikely, there is a chance Apple will move forward with the early release of the iPhone 5S.

Just last month, the company unveiled an updated iPad just 7 months after the release of the third-generation model.

Samsung and HTC seem to be releasing phones nearly every month so.... Why not? There is no need getting upset just because a phone has been updated within months. It happens with everything else such as TV's, Laptops, Camera's etc and we accept it.

BUT, there will be Apple haters out there making a big deal of this. Interestingly, if they have a phone of another brand that is over a few months then there will be a new one out or in the pipeline.

There is a difference here. Apple makes one type of phone with one operating system. The others cater for a broader spectrum of the mobile market from plain phones to smart phones, Android, Windows and other operating systems.

I wonder if it will have the green flash power on and purple camera picture features or will they be introducing some new colours to the mix.

I would be tempted to lookup how many Android Smart phones Samsung have already released in the past 12 months before going anywhere further with this comment.

So, I'm going to try something new this time...
Apparently these rumor posts come about because people click on them.

So, I'm ignoring all Apple rumor posts from this point forward.
For crying out loud... it's not even the number one phone anymore.

Can we hype something else for a change???

PS: This should in no way be considered a criticism of AD. AD is usually pretty good about such things, but rather a comment on the state of the Apple Hype Machine in general.
AD, Keep up the good work.


Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?

Why pre-tel would anyone buy a product that is outdated and virtually obsolete after a few short months? Apple products are the only ones that are this bad because of the narrow minded foolish diehards out there.

you are being mistaken; it is not about apple hatred, but about apple's greed that consumers (including so called isheeps) are tired of.

try that and you will fail to show samsung (or even others) has got yet another smartphone in the market within 6 months that does have a very similar specs to the previous one. for example, do you know the difference between galaxy notes I and II? it sounds like a proper upgrade, not like, "oh well, i wanted to upgrade because i like apple products." there is no harm in liking the apple products but a fact is a fact is a fact. apple products are overpriced, period.
in india, iphone 5 16 GB is costing > US$ 1000, geez!
