Apple has said that it intends to launch its next generation iPhone, the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 5S later this year. If rumors are to be believed, we can see the next generation iPhone in the third quarter of 2013.
If the iPhone 5S is released we will not be seeing much of a change in terms of design and features except a few tweaks here and there. However if Apple intends to release its iPhone 6, it could feature a lot of changes in terms of both design and specs.
Apple and Samsung have been embroiled in an intense legal battle, but Apple still uses the processors and displays made by Samsung. This time however apple has contracted Sharp to manufacture LCD panels for the for its next generation iPhones. The displays will be manufactured at the Kameyama Plant No. 1 in Japan.
The next iteration of the iPhone was first scheduled to go into production in March but was delayed due to technical difficulties associated with its finger print sensors which are being featured for the first time in any iPhone device.
Apple has already commissioned Japan Display and LG Display to mass produce the iPhone 5S which will begin from the second quarter.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has already hinted that Apple will be releasing its two upcoming iPhone versions by the end of this year. Cook has also denied that the iPhone 5S will be released in June.
Cook said, “Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software, and services that we can’t wait to introduce this fall and throughout 2014.”
In all probability, the reports that the launch of both iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 has turned out to be true. However everything seems to have settled down and it is reported that Chinese suppliers have already received the essential components for the manufacture of the iPhones.
