iphone_5For those who did not buy the iPhone 5 and are still holding on to their iPhone 4/4S, chances are the iPhone 5S will probably be worth the upgrade. iPhone 5 owners on the other hand might not see that much reason to upgrade. In any case while Apple has yet to officially announce the iPhone 5S, a report by Japanese Mac website, MacFan.jp, has revealed that the iPhone 5S could be announced at a special event on the 20th of June. This is probably the most specific announcement date we’ve heard to date, and the report goes on to state that the device will go on sale in July. The latter part is unsurprising given that Apple typically sells their products within a couple of weeks of launch, although this is assuming the 20th of June date is true.

This seems to contradict earlier rumors which pegged the iPhone 5S release for Q3, which makes sense since the iPhone 5 was announced in Q3 2012. However it seems that Apple will announce another iPhone in Q3, with this particular device being the rumored low-cost iPhone that will target emerging and pre-paid markets. While the specs of the iPhone 5S have yet to be announced, it is safe to assume that it will feature moderate hardware upgrades over the iPhone 5 while retaining a similar design. We suggest you take this with a grain of salt for now, but we’ll be keeping our eyes open for more information anyway.
