One rumour that the tech world can’t really decide upon is whether or not Apple will be releasing a cheaper/entry-level iPhone alongside the iPhone 5S. A new report from China Times via UnwiredView has surfaced today, however, and is in favour of Apple releasing two iPhone models this year.
Apparently an analyst from Citigroup Global Securities has issued a new note “reporting that the iPhone 5S and a cheaper iPhone would be available starting early September“. The cheaper iPhone was reported to be a TD-SCDMA version that would go on sale in China through China Mobile in late September or early October. Both the 5th generation iPad and 2nd generation iPad Mini were also reported to be released in September or October as well.
What is interesting about this particular report is that if the release dates mentioned are correct, then it means the WWDC 2013 will not see any new hardware announcements. This could very well be the case as well as Apple has done this in the past, sticking to strictly software. Furthermore, we heard that Apple was having a hard time with some of the components of next-generation iOS Devices.
We learned yesterday that the WWDC 2013 would be taking place between June 10th and June 14th and that we would see previews of iOS 7 and OS X 10.9. What do you think? Will Apple announce any new hardware at the WWDC 2013? Let us know in the comments section below.
