Will it be an iPhone 5S or an iPhone 6 for Apple this year?

True to their reputation as an annually upgrading, often-changing gadget company, Apple has made it to the rumor mill once again as news went around that they will be releasing an iPhone again this year. When will this be released? iPhone 5S or iPhone 6? What can we expect from the Jobs-company this time? 

Although not a lot of people has gotten used to having their iPhone 5 just yet, there is a rumor going around that as early as now, Apple is already cooking up a new model for their iPhone line. 

The Buzz 

Rumor has it that Apple will be releasing a new iPhone. Whether it’s an iPhone 5S or an iPhone 6, nobody knows for sure. If it’s going to be released this year or early next year, let’s just wait for the official news.

I, for one, am not a fan of the iPhone. Show me an iPad, or iMac, or Macbook, and I will be one of those who will be waiting for it. But an iPhone? Nah! But, hey, whatever floats your boat! 

The Features

So, what do we expect from the newest iPhone model this year? An iPhone rumor is not complete if the Mac fans will not come up with their expectations of the new gadget. 

Of course, a new iOS is in order. It’s what Apple has been known for—upgrading their iOS annually. Another thing we expect is Siri, as other iPhones, iPads, and iPods after iPhone 4S, is expected to have.

This one is something new. Some say we should expect a Fingerprint Sensor as part of the new iPhone. Afterall, Apple has already acquired AuthenTec, a mobile security solutions company. But how do they integrate it to the no-nonsense design trademark of the iPhone? There is a suggestion to combine the Home button to the sensor to save space. 

Another feature that is rumored to be included, although I doubt Steve Jobs would approve of this, is that there will be a slide out keyboard as consumers have demanded for so long. Still, Apple is known not to give in to what the costumers want. They still call the shots and we, the ever-loyal fans, trust that they know gadgets best. 

As for the storage capacity and the battery life, that is still a big question. Smartphones being all-purpose, the battery and storage has always been a problem. Wonder what Apple’s take will be on this? 

So many rumors. Some may be true. Others, we don’t know. I guess we just have to wait for the moves of Apple on this one.
