The date when Apple is planning on releasing the newest version of the iPhone has been one of the most closely guarded secrets in the world of technology. Although nothing has been confirmed and details are still murky, the latest rumor is that the iPhone 5S will be coming out this summer.
AppleInsider reports that the iPhone 5S will be released in August. It’s rumored that the cheaper iPhone will be out in August too. If it happens, it would be the first time that two iPhones were released in one year, reports Web Pro News. Obviously it would also be the first time that two iPhones were released in the same month.
The iPhone 5S is believed to be a “world phone.” It will work on any network in any market and will not require significant internal modifications. Since the phone is designed to be so versatile, it could actually be launched worldwide on one day. Previous iPhone releases were staggered so that Apple could modify its phones to fit the needs of specific markets.
It is rumored that the cheaper iPhone will be built to work on China Mobile’s LTE. Some speculate that the phone is being constructed specifically to work in China. Apple may also choose to release the cheaper phone in other emerging markets like South America and India.
There is still no concrete price point for the phone. Some places have reported that it will cost as little as $99 but others have theorized that it will be sold for as much as $330.
