iPhone 5S Specs and Features | Release Date

The iPhone 5 is barely out of its pristinely white box but already a flurry of rumours are hinting at the launch of its successor, dubbed the iPhone 5S. Believed to be heading into production next month, sources claim the handset could hit shelves as early as June 2013.


The report also says that the company’s tablet lineup refresh is coming in October. The iPad mini with Retina display is reportedly codenamed J84, while the iPad 5 is dubbed J72. Apple’s rumored next-gen iPads are expected to retain the design of their predecessors, but the mini should be getting a Retina display. It’s anyone’s guess what kind of upgrades will come with the iPad 5.

The iPhone 5S is still months away from mass production, but our source suspects that the star feature will be an upgraded rear camera–perhaps featuring Sony’s 13-Megapixel sensor, plus the aforementioned flash upgrade–along with a processor bump. Current prototypes are codenamed N51 and N53, with July mentioned as the target date.

iPhone 5S will have a higher-resolution display than the iPhone 5, potentially based on the new IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) material. If true, it would provide the 5S with a brighter and more detailed screen than the iPhone 5, while also potentially dropping the thickness of the handset – albeit, only slightly.
This seems more likely following CES 2013, when the Sharp IGZO display technology was displayed for the first time inside a 32in 4K monitor.
