Top 5 Apple iPhone 5s Rumors

According to highly charged Internet buzz, Apple is expected to launch the highly anticipated iPhone 5S during the summer of 2013.  Just when we’re getting used to the iPhone 5, we need to brace ourselves for the next big thing when it comes to smartphone technology. The Apple community loves to speculate about what features the next iPhone will have and we’re here to share the top 5 Apple iPhone 5S rumors this week: 


Do a quick Google search and you’ll find all sorts of speculated pictures of the iPhone 5S (or iPhone 6).  One of the biggest rumors about the next iPhone is that it will look very similar to the current iPhone 5.  The biggest changes will be on the inside of the iPhone 5S, so if you’re looking for an updated outer case, you’re out of luck. 

iPhone 5S: New and Improved Battery 

1. Some analysts are predicting the brand new iPhone 5S will have a new and improved battery.  The iPhone 5 currently offers 8 hours of talk time on 3G, 8 hours of browsing time on LTE and 225 hours of standby time.  This will be a welcome addition as iPhone’s are notoriously bad at keeping a charge.  This means you won’t need to bring your iPhone charger, extra battery pack or car changer with you everywhere you go! 

2. Are you in love with the brand new colors the Apple iPod Touch comes in? You might be able to get the next iPhone 5S in green, pink, white, blue, red and black. This will be a welcome update as many Apple fans have felt that the same old black and white has become stale over the years.

iPhone 5S: NFC 

3.  Another exciting iPhone 5S rumor is that Apple will incorporate Near Field Communications (NFC) into their next smartphone.  NFC is an innovative technology that allows two devices to establish radio connections by coming in close proximity to each other.  Samsung and Nokia have already started using NFC technology.  This would definitely be a welcome addition as it would promote e-commerce activities. 

iPhone 5S: Super HD Camera & Screen 

4.  Another iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 rumor is a brand new Super HD camera and screen. This could mean a whopping 1440 pixel resolution rather than the stagnant 1080 pixel resolution.  Apple’s current iPhone 5 offers customers an 8 megapixel camera, a 1.2 MP camera and a 4 inch screen.  We’re sure Apple fans would love an updated HD camera and screen.

Don't hold your breath for this comparison

iPhone 5S: More storage?!

5. Apple fans are definitely ready for an increase in storage in the next iPhone, especially since it hasn’t been increased since the iPhone 4S launched in October, 2011.  Historically, Apple increases iPhone storage every two generations, which means the iPhone 5S is definitely due for an upgrade.

The iPhone 5 continues to be one of the most popular smartphones on the planet.  The next iPhone, the iPhone 5S or the iPhone 6, is sure to be a step up when it comes to technology including a possible brand new HD camera, more storage and NFC.  The outer framework of the iPhone 5S will most likely remain the same but who knows you might be able to get it in a variety of colors.

Grains of salt
