All new iOS 7 is to be featured on new iPhone 5S handsets. Such as the report by Reuters. Server’s records apparently indicate iPhone identifiers iPhone 6.1 with iOS 7. Current iPhone 5 has identifiers iPhone 5.1 and 5.2, but next iPhone is to be iPhone 5S.
New iPhone 5S is rumored to come in various colors as well as in different screen sizes.
Brian White, Topeka Capital Markets’ analyst talking to MacRumors seems to think that new iPhone 5 will be called iPhone 5S and it will come in blue, pink, yellow and silver as well as in white and black.
“Although Apple offers a 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5 and a 3.5-inch screen on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, the Company has never offered multiple screen sizes for a single model. We believe this is about to change with the next iPhone offering different screen sizes that we believe will allow Apple to better bifurcate the market and expand its reach. This eventually opens up the possibility for a lower-priced iPhone (i.e., iPhone mini) with a smaller screen size that could allow Apple to further penetrate markets such as China and open up opportunities in India. At the same time, Apple could unveil a larger screen size compared to the recently updated 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5.”
More choices of iPhone as well as more price points are certainly a good idea, especially in Asia.
