Apple is preparing to begin trial production of a new iPhone 5, or iPhone 5S, in December, reports DigiTimes citing a Chinese-language Commercial Times report.

Initial production volumes are thought to be around 50,000-100,000 units.

Facing low yield rates in the production of iPhone 5, Apple has accelerated the certification processes for related parts and components for the iPhone 5S, the paper revealed.

The rumored iPhone 5S is expect to enter volume production in the first quarter of 2013. In addition, the report says Apple will likely release a new version of the iPad a quarter later than the iPhone 5S, "since the display resolution of its latest version of iPad has come out lower than expected".

Predictions: Like the S on 3GS was for Speed, so will be for the 5S. - Quad Core 1.2GHz or Dual Core 1.4GHz - 2GB RAM -128 GB storage. That's it. Battery will have the same specs which means it will be slightly improved. I don't see it coming out before September.

They released a new ipad when they launched ipad mini... This release of iPhone 5s looks similar to that...its going to be 0.001 inch taller and few OS updates (most copied from Android and then tweaked a bit)....but many apple fanboys will still buy it...Apple is raping their wallet which i don't care...but they are killing American innovation and i am Mad

I dont know if you haven't notice but Apple recently sued Android for copying them and apple won the whole lawsuit. So sit your ass down and shut up. Androids are horrible and are stolen copyrighted ideas of apple. SO STFU

@I dont know if you haven't notice but Apple recently sued Android for copying them and apple won the whole lawsuit. So sit your ass down and shut up. Androids are horrible and are stolen copyrighted ideas of apple. SO STFU Apple is so up your azz, you haven´t notice, Apple paid 21million for copying a clock, and only gave 2.5 million for Sandy relief, and Samsung is the best selling Smart phone in the US and the whole world(more sold than iPhone), so sit your raped ass down and shut the fuk up, Android wil put APPLE-CRAPPLE out of business, and by the way Steve Jobs is a fuking thief, just as he stole the mac os from Xerox,and the iPhone is fuking bouring without a jailbreak. Happy ass raping for you, continue on getting your azz raped by APPLE-CRAPPLE.

Oh and just because they are testing it now doesn't mean they are going to release it any sooner than a year from now.

Of course not. Apple would never ever release a product before it is complete.

Why does it bug you haters so much that we (apple fanboys as you call us) can afford to buy a new phone every year or every couple of months if need be. It's our money and we will spend it however we see fit. Jellous much?
