New iPads Scheduled for April, iPhone 5S Release in August?

A new report from iMore predicts that Apple will release the iPhone 5S in August and new iPads as soon as April.

Sources familiar with the plans have told iMore that the iPhone 5S does indeed have the same basic design as the iPhone 5, with a more advanced processor and an improved camera. With the iPhone 5, Apple reduced the thinness of the casing but managed to keep essentially the same, if not slightly better, overall quality. Given the dimensions, or lack-thereof, that in-and-of itself was a feat of engineering. With the iPhone 5S, the aim is to once again raise the bar in terms of iPhone optics, including a much better camera in essentially the same casing.

Additionally, the site has been told the Apple is planning to release new iPads in April.

We've also been told an April-ish launch is getting serious consideration for the next-generation iPads, but we're really not sure what to make of that yet. iPad 5 casings have already begun to leak -- the only big redesign in the line -- so that could make sense. Retina for the iPad mini, however, still doesn't sound imminent.

Notably, the idea of a summer release for the iPhone 5S was just put forward by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In a recent investor note, Kuo predicted that Apple would announced the iPhone 5S in June and release the device in July.

It's believed that Apple may be accelerating its release schedule for the iPhone to prevent upcoming devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S IV from leaping ahead in features.

they have 2 options. 1. release an update phone yearly that has clear advantages outside of camera mp increase and adapter change. 2. release bi yearly to keep up with android phones. Samsung galaxy seems to be on that schedule. still, the vast majority of apple users I know update every other year on contract not with every release.

I get your point? you want Apple to do what all the big big big companies are doing, I think we cant because the other companies have way too much money n way too many resources and Apple just doesn't... that's why they only have one phone and not 20 phones doing the same stuff like the other guys... I always find it funny when you have companies like Samsung, Motorola, LG anyway they all have a line of phones & all of there phones are comparable there really isn't much of a difference, if I was an android person that would kind of pissed me off I want every company to not just do the basics

Yes you're pointing out the obvious a bigger company that makes a lot of the technology in its Galaxy phone with tons of tons of money. Not to kill anybody's opinions but it's obvious to a small child a bigger company with more money that can do the same thing, Is going to do well but it really comes down to innovation and who comes out with it first and who patents it so no one else can come up with it after them. None of these companies are looking out for me and you, there looking out for them self... I am a fanboy and I love Apple I buy all the stuff always been happy with it! Oh what I really like to see is all the companies making android devices start fighting with themselves for once like Samsung galaxy phones should start putting commercials out telling everyone how their line of phones completely destroys any other phone on android! like make droid ads to beat other droid phones? Oh and just so you don't think I'm a hater I know it's no secret is getting better Samsung has got the best phones, android is the OS big boy & we don't care anymore move on get even better Android & fight your fellow companies making android devices be competitive because it's not like you're going to be the best forever just fighting with lil old apple. Anyway I'm just saying all I see is ads talking about how droid phones are better than Apple phones or this carrier is better than that carrier, if android is supposed to be the big boy then what the hell be the big boy and fight your own devices since you're the best find the best phone on the best maker! If I had android and I was all about it like I am with Apple then I would want this "I want to know what phone is the best and what maker makes that phone" that's all... Shouldn't there be an ad for that!

What ever happend to the "Steve Jobs Era" Where no one... I MEAN NO ONE had any idea of what Apple was planning, until Apple told us. Just a few minuits ago, they said iPhone 5 in June.... Stop reporting this bullshit until you have some facts....
