According to U.S. investment bank Jefferies analyst Peter Misek, Apple iPhone 5S will be released in June next year, as the next member of the iPhone family, it is not simple an iterative upgrade. At that time,the iPhone 5S will not only have a “super-high-definition screen and camera”, but also have a variety of colors to choose from like the new iPod Touch.
In addition to the screen, camera and body colors to be updated, iPhone 5S will be the first time to add a storage capacity of 128GB model. Based on Apple’s recent massive investments on the Passbook, Misek also speculated iPhone 5S will support NFC technology, and have a larger battery capacity.
Misek had speculated that Apple TV will be released by the end of the year, but the prophecy did not come true. Many people think his saying has somewhat “exaggeration”. But his guess is not groundless, although the industry is widely regarded the iPhone 5S will only be upgraded in a few specifications, and also there has been reports that the iPhone 6 will usher in major innovation. The well-known technology website BusinessInsider also believes that in response to the current trend of declining sales, next year Apple will shorten the iPhone’s new release cycle. They said: “Apple certainly does not want to see most of the year’s results are concentrated in the six months period of time. In order to avoid this phenomenon, they need to accelerate the pace of product launches.”
Finally, do not forget, Misek forecast on the iPhone 4S is quite accurate.
