For the first time since the launch of the first iPhone, Apple would accelerate the life cycle of their products and launch a new iPhone 5S in mid-2013.
A little over two months Apple introduced the iPhone 5. The Cupertino firm has been characterized by making the most commercial profit of the different versions of their devices, launching, on average, one iPhone per year: the original iPhone was released in 2007, and then followed the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, ie 6 devices in six years.
According to a publication of DigiTimes, Apple would launch a new iPhone 5S by the middle of next year and in 2014 would be released the iPhone 6. According to that blog, Apple will unveil its next-generation iPad and iPhone in mid-2013, so that devices will begin to manufacture during the first quarter of next year.
Thus, the iPhone 5S would come 9 or 10 months after the iPhone 5, (assuming a launch in June or July 2013), accelerating the launch of new versions. Recall for example that the iPhone 4 was launched in June 2010 and the iPhone 4S in October 2011, ie one year and four months later, while the iPhone 5 did the same in September this year.
This information comes a few days after some blogs announced that Samsung would already be working on their next Galaxy S4 that would be launched in 2013. Is a fight coming between the Galaxy S4 vs iPhone 5S in 2013?
