Apple’s iPhone 5S Production Already Started At Foxconn [Rumor]
It looks like Apple has already started the production of the iPhone 5S, an upgrade to the iPhone 5, which will most likely be announced between June or August. We cannot guarantee this, but a new report from Japanese blog Macotakara says otherwise. According to the blog, several Foxconn factories have already begun the production of the device. Since the iPhone 5S is rumored to look just like the iPhone 5, both the devices are being made on the same production lines with not many changes to the process.
We have been hearing a lot about the iPhone 5S lately, but no part leaks have surfaced yet. Possibly because the iPhone 5S will be similar in design to the iPhone 5. Various reports suggest that the upgraded iPhone 5S will feature a new 13 megapixel camera with a more powerful flash.
While a faster processor, most likely a quad core A Series, is pretty much confirmed, other details for the device are scarce. Rumors about the iPhone 5S having a fingerprint sensor have also been around, but we’re not very open to that idea. Another report says that the iPhone 5S may come in new colors like the iPod Touch 5th generation.
The blog also mentioned that Japan’s NTT DoCoMo has started to reduce orders for Android smartphones, which could mean that the iPhone 5S might be available on the network. NTT DoCoMo is Japan’s largest carrier, so Apple will see good sales for the iPhone 5S.
Along with the iPhone 5S, rumors also mention that Apple could unveil a cheaper iPhone. This could be true, but we’re not sure if it will happen in June or perhaps towards the end of this year.
What do you want the iPhone 5S to feature? A better battery perhaps? Let us know in the comments.
