Nothing really is confirmed, but buyers are likely to expect a bunch of new features in the latest offering from Apple. There is another version of iPhone 5 is rumoured to be available shortly. It is the cheaper version called iPhone 5C which is probably going to be a plastic variant of iPhone 5. However, more attention is drawn to iPhone 5S and the upgrades it may be offering.
Apple 5S is expected to follow similar design patterns. The previous S versions of Apple, iPhone 3GS as well as iPhone 4S had kept the design pattern of the individual predecessors. However, there may be come subtle changes. iPhone 5S may have dual-LED flash on its back. It may also have anodised shell made of aluminium.
Some huge differences are expected in this department, which will make iPhone 5S stand out. It is likely to have a 12/13MP camera, whereas its predecessor has an 8MP one. The dual-LED flash is going to help the cause anyway. iPhone 5S may also have bulbs which will help it gain a much better image quality than the previous version.
Buyers should expect better performance from iPhone 5S in the two most important aspect of a mobile phone, battery life and speed. The iPhone 5S is anticipated to be built with a higher processor than iPhone 5. The new chip from Apple, A6X/A7, may feature in the updated version. Apple has a tendency to upgrade its processors on a yearly basis, so buyers should expect further up gradation with iPhone 5S.
Both are likely to feature iOS 7 which is already a confirmed feature in iPhone 5. It will feature every announced updates along with AirDrop functionality. On the other hand, the big question is whether both of them will have the same software. The iPhone 5S is not expected to feature the same iOS software like iOS 5. Even though everything is still rumoured only, the iPhone 5S may focus more on security.
It is almost impossible to guess the price. The iPhone 5 may be available for $99 if the iPhone 5C replaces its counterparts as a cheaper option. On the contrary, iPhone 5S may not have a price drop. It is expected to stay at $199.99.
