We’re still at a stage where not everyone can get their hands on a shiny new Apple iPhone 5. Demand remains incredibly high for Apple’s newest iPhone, but we’re already hearing whispers emerge on a potential successor to the iPhone 5 to be released during Summer 2013. Consumers are secretly hoping that Apple will skip ahead and release the iPhone 6 next, but logic tells us that the iPhone 5S will be the next iPhone to launch.
Is it too early though? We seem to have the same debate year after year, straight after Apple has only pushed their current iPhone out of the door. The possibility of yet another iPhone coming out in Summer will be unpleasant reading for those that have just committed themselves to a brand new two-year contract with the likes of Sprint, Verizon and AT&T.

A new iPhone always releases each year though whether consumers like it or not, but this time we may be seeing an unexpected release during the Summer of 2013 instead, rather than towards the end of the year which Apple has favored for the last two iPhone models if you count the iPhone 5 as well.
A new article published by Apple leak ‘specialists’ DigiTimes, cites industry supply chains for the apparent release update, although it is worth nothing that Digitimes haven’t always been spot on when it comes to supplying unreleased Apple product information early.
Still though, it is all we have to go on at the moment and at the end of the day – Apple almost always brings new hardware to WWDC year after year. Are you ready to see an upgraded version of the iPhone 5 next Summer, or are you happy to keep your iPhone 5 until the iPhone 6 arrives instead?
When the upgraded iPhone 5S does launch, consumers will be expecting to see a quad-core based processor at the very least. With Apple being perfectionists, we doubt they’ll be too happy that they’ve lost their ‘best camera’ crown to the Nokia Lumia 920 as well, so an upgraded camera in the iPhone 5S may be a safe bet as one of the expected upgrades.
Are you ready to start talking about the iPhone 5S yet? If you are unsatisfied with your iPhone 5 at the moment, let us know what you would like to see in an upgraded model, if it arrives as early as next Summer.
