We’ve heard rumors that Apple will unveil the iPhone 5S in June of this year, and it turns out that there might actually be some truth to the rumors.
The Wall Street Journal reported today that Apple plans to begin production of the next iPhone in Q2 of 2013. The new iPhone will have the same shape and 4-inch screen as the iPhone 5S and will probably launch this summer.
Along with the news of the upcoming iPhone, the report claims that Apple is still working with its manufacturing partners in Asia to produce a cheaper iPhone in different colors. However, the cheaper iPhone probably won’t launch until the second half of 2013.
The cheaper iPhone will have a 4-inch screen and use a different casing that the current iPhone. We’ve heard rumors that Apple is looking into plastic casing, as well as carbon fiber.
