Peter Misek from Jefferies is already predicting the next iPhone's specs
Sad to say it, Apple fans, but your iPhone 5 is already old news:
the iPhone 5S
is coming in about six months, and lets just say it has a pretty colorful personality.
According to Peter Misek, an analyst from American global investment bank and institutional securities firm Jefferies, said that the iPhone 5S will be released in June 2013, and will likely come in six to eight different colors.
Misek said the new iPhone 5S will be colorful like the iPod touch, pictured above.
Misek also predicts that the 5S will have an IGZO screen for Retina+, a super HD camera/screen, NFC capability, 128GB of storage and a longer battery life.
Business Insider was quick to note that Misek's predictions have been off with Apple TV, but that he predicted the iPhone 4S last year while everyone else was expecting the iPhone 5. Hence, it seems to think Misek is spot on in the iPhone department.
Just last week, ETrade Supply claimed it had the
first leaked photos of the iPhone 5S
More specifically, they looked to be the rear shell, and it shows a few minor differences between the 5 and the future 5S
such as the placement of the logic board screw holes.
iPhone 5 was released in September
of this year. It features the new iOS 6 operating system, a larger 4-inch screen, 1136x640 screen resolution, 4G LTE connectivity, 16GB/32GB/64GB storage options, an A6 dual-core processor and an 8MP rear-facing camera/1.2MP front-facing camera. The price is $200/$300/$400 for 16GB/32GB/64GB storage options respectively.
During launch weekend in September, Apple sold a total of
5 million iPhone 5s

Idiotic loser quote of the year from someone completely out of touch.
Apple has long been on a semi-annual product release. Generally, they didn't release their iPod/iPhone/iPad/iMac products at the same time. They've been doing this for years. So Tony, why you've managed to actually lend credence to this view is quite baffling.
I actually take the opposite view. Apple's helter-skelter release schedule as of late is actually showing some incompetence and lack of product direction.
Previously, iPhones were all released in June corresponding to Apple WWDC. iPads were unveiled in Jan. But the delays on the 4S showed that they didn't have mastery of product release. This has caused confusion in most of their releases instead of their yearly product refreshes.
I think their only plan is to get new product out as quickly as possible, as they know a large percentage of their customers will buy it. If that means two or three releases a year on their iPhone, than so be it.

IMO I don't see any advantage when Apple releases two iphone products in one year. Just look at the difference between the ipad3 and ipad4. I think their goal is to return to June's release schedule corresponding to WWDC.
