Have you had enough of the endless and not very credible next-gen iPhone rumors? No? Good, because there’s a new one making the headlines. And although it’s equally as unreliable as all the previous stories, we can’t overlook it completely, can we?
Unfortunately, it’s not very juicy. I’d even call it a downer, because it pretty much debunks all those speculations of Apple looking to unveil three, four, a dozen or a hundred iPhones during this year.
Ready for it? According to sources from “the upstream supply chain”, quoted by Digitimes, future iPhone components will start shipping in late May, meaning the handheld could be launched towards the end of the year’s third fiscal quarter (sometime in August or September).
The depressing part is that, if these sources prove to be correct, the new device won’t be an iPhone 6 or an affordable model, but a slightly enhanced 5S. Among the expected upgrades, there’s apparently a higher-end processor and a higher-megapixel camera.
Yeah, and a thinner profile by a hundredth of an inch probably. Like I said, a real downer, but do keep in mind that Digitimes reports are very hit and miss.
