Don’t Expect the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 Next Week

The iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 might be the most anticipated smartphones of the year, but Apple fans who are hoping Apple will announce a new iPhone at the special event next week are set up for disappointment.

Apple’s annual WWDC Keynote played host to an iPhone launch or two, but this year the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6 are as likely to show up at the event as the Samsung Galaxy S4 is.

We expect to see some new Apple hardware at the event, but not in the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch line of products. Look for a new MacBook Pro with Retina Display and maybe new MacBook Air models or even a Mac Pro, but not an iPhone.

Instead, look for a new version of the software that runs on the iPhone and iPad, which will likely arrive with the iOS 7 name.

The iPhone 5S could feature a higher resolution display with a narrower bezel, similar to the iPad mini.

The latest iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 rumors point to release dates much later. The iPhone 5S launch event could arrive in roughly three months, which is just enough time for Apple to test an iOS 7 beta. The iPhone 6 release rumors, which come from analysts point to 2014. While Apple doesn’t comment on future products, based on past naming schemes and actions an iPhone 5S is widely expected in 2013 and an iPhone 6 in 2014.

There is also a rumor that the iPhone 5S will support AirDrop as an exclusive iOS 7 feature. Apple typically saves one big feature ans several smaller ones for the latest iPhone, especially on an “S” model. The iPhone 4S saw Siri exclusivity for example.

Even though we may see new MacBook products at the event, WWDC is a developer event and Apple re-affirmed this by moving the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 launches to October and September in the past several years. This put a bigger focus on the iOS and OS X software that powers Apple products.

In late April Apple CEO Tim Cook told investors, “our teams are working on new hardware, software, and services that we can’t wait to introduce this Fall and throughout 2014.”

The iPhone 5S could feature a 4-inch edge-to-edge display with a higher resolution display and a new camera with dual-LED flash.

Check out the latest iPhone 5S rumors.

Cook doesn’t specifically talk about the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6, but Apple’s product lineup is small enough and predictable enough that it is safe to include the iPhone in this comment.

Additionally, while there are many alleged iPhone 5S parts leaking, we’ve yet to see a full iPhone 5S prototype leak. More often than not we know more about a new iPhone a week before the announcement. Two weeks before the iPhone 5 event, photos of an assembled iPhone 5 shell appeared online, along with many other leaks, the likes fo which we haven’t seen for the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6.

Even without a new iPhone at the WWDC 2013 Keynote on June 10th we expect to hear a lot about the software that will power the iPhone 5S and other iPhones.

    Talk all the crap you want about iPhones one thing they have above all other smart phones is virus free and for a business owner I want a reliable everyday phone and that’s an iPhone.

  7. Randy says

    Do your parents know you all talk like that? Lol really, if you guys argue over a phone your lives must be just peachy.. Biggest true part I read is the constant whining over jailbreaking on various forums. Umm… steal much?

    I personally prefer the iPhone, its a more professional phone in my opinion. Androids are good phones as well, Androids seem to be a more laid back type of phone. Yes Android does have less restrictions, but iPhones are restricted to keep them clean, fast, and virus free. P.S. Jailbreaks are only wanted so badly because some users prefer the ability to customize iOS to their liking, something that would not be possible with out it.
