Leaked documents claim Apple iPhone 5S pre-orders to start in June An internal document sent to employees of Japan's KDDI wireless service has been leaked, revealing that the carrier will begin taking pre-orders for the iPhone 5S on June 20th.
If accurate, the phone will launch in July, ahead of an expected "fall" launch as implied by Apple CEO Tim Cook.

In the document, there is also some pricing information and basic details like the fact that the new device will run on iOS 7.

There is no way to authenticate the document so take this story as a rumor but it would certainly be interesting if Apple is preparing a summer launch.

Additionally, the document claims the iPhone 5S will have a 13MP camera and a fingerprint reader, two rumors which we have heard before.

Another interesting note is Apple's WDC is slated for June 10th-14th, so the pre-orders would start just a week later, which makes sense.

All I care is if they make a bigger screen... let me clarify, not longer like iPhone 5, but actually wider like the Samsung Galaxy and almost any other smartphones out there in the market that is not a iPhone.

I don't care to reach to reach the app icon with my thumb just like iPhone creators think how we access it. I use my index finger like everyone else in this world that uses a smartphone... but I do use my thumb to pick my nose.

I know they wont do this, but that is the only way I would actually purchase a new iPhone, otherwise I'm just going to stick with my iPhone 4 and look into a different brand smartphone soon.
