iPhone 5S Release Date Rumors, New Apple Device Already in Production?
A new report out of Asia is suggesting that Apple is producing the next installment of the iPhone, the “iPhone 5S”.
This new claim comes from the Chinese-language publication the The Chronicle Times and is being circulated by the hit or miss website Digitimes. Steven Shen of Digitimes said that the new Apple device is in the early developments of production and the will start crafting the new iPhones in December.
The report also says that Apple will increase up to volume production in the first quarter next year. The Taiwanese tech site also stated that a new iPad was on the cards and that it will most likely be launched after the “iPhone 5S”.
The talk of a new iPhone, so soon after the release of the last Apple phone has tech personnel questioning the validity of this new report from the source.
“There are several things about this report that don’t match up with Apple’s usual production schedules. For the past two years, iPhones have come out in the fall, while iPad models have debuted in the spring. Before that, Apple announced new models of the iPhone in the summer at the Worldwide Developers conference (though the Verizon iPhone 4 and the white iPhone 4 came out later than the initial model),” this according to the Washington Post.
The Post went on to say even though the report may be iffy Apple in recent times have moved away from its usual production schedule.
TechCrunch added more weight to the debate when they chimed in and said that the smartphone market doesn’t wait around and rapid updates are the new trend.
“Apple’s competitors in the smartphone market don’t adhere to annual updates; Samsung, HTC and countless other Android OEMs push out new and updated phones with increasing frequency, and even iterate on old models with carrier specific variants and modified versions of the original that promise more connectivity, improved storage and more,”
“Samsung’s Galaxy S line has enjoyed a roughly annual update cycle, but the company has also released countless other Galaxy devices during the same years over the course of which we’ve seen just six iPhones. In the past, the frequency of competitor updates never really affected Apple; now, however, Samsung has risen to become a very strong competitor with growing momentum.”
