As the iPhone 5 continues to route the market and extending to other countries, Apple is getting set for its next generation iPhone, which has already been named by analysts as iPhone 5S.
A report we got from Business Insider today claims that Apple will probably launch the iPhone 5S by next year June, a move to enter the market before the Samsung giant Galaxy S IV. Peter Misek who happens to be an analyst at Jefferies made this note yesterday morning.

The iPhone 5S to pack in 6 different colors
More in his prediction note listed that the iPhone 5S will be coming in six different colors. Another report from commercial times also says that the bulk production of iPhone 5S will commence by the first quarter of 2013.
Misek went ahead to list the expected features on the iPhone 5S, he specified a Super HD camera/Screen, an improved battery, this time around, a support for NFC and the possibility of upgrading the Retina+ to IGZO screen. He chose 128GB for the storage, and predicted 6-8 color variations, presumably like the iPod Touch.
Looking back at history, the iPhone 4S, came out around the September/October time frame, and the iPhone 3G with its successor iPhone 4 released around June/July.
Misek did not disclose his reason for choosing the mid-year, but we heard from Asymco’s Horace Dediu. His theory was that, Apple would like to speed up its cycle of release.
Apple’s sales significantly went down in the two quarters preceding the iPhone 5 launch. Consumers back off from market because they knew that the new product was coming. Apple is trying to avoid loading sales into one half of the year by speeding up the release of products as check measures.
As all sources release had been predicting this December for the trial production of the iPhone 5S. Some weeks ago, Etrade Supple posted the rear shell of the coming iPhone 5S on its website. DigiTimes also confirmed that the next generation iPhone will be coming out around mid 2013.

Peter Misek is known to be a very good analyst when it comes to predicting Apple’s product, he has been making a lot of bad comment about the Apple TV for years, for example in August, he said the Apple television was in complete production and by the end of the year, it would be out. In May 2011 when everyone was calling out for iPhone 5, he called for iPhone 4S, which was exactly called as he predicted. His iPhone predictions could be trusted. So it is expected that his prediction tallies with the iPhone 5S releasing in June. All effort to get words out of Cupertino about the coming iPhone 5S was to no avail, trust Apple, it will not make any statement until it is ready to launch the product.
What do you think about these predictions? And what are the features you are expecting on the iPhone 5S.
