Foxconn has reportedly started production of the iPhone 5S, reports Japanese blog Macotakara.

In the last day two separate rumors have surfaced in regards to the release date of the iPhone 5S. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple will unveil the new iPhone 5S, a lower cost iPhone, and iOS 7 in June with devices set for release in July. iMore predicts that Apple will release the iPhone 5S in August and new iPads as soon as April.

Macotakara also reports that Japan's largest cellular provider NTT DoCoMo is reducing orders for Android devices which hints that they might finally carry the iPhone.

iPhone is a software platform. Not hardware. Is iOS 7 ready? Is there an iOS7 beta? If not: They have not started production. Every single iPhone so far have followed this pattern: About 3 month before release a beta iOS is released. Then hardware...

"no one wants to see an iPhone5S" That is nerd thinking. Somehow every single iPhone have sold double then the previous version. Including the S versions. Why? 99% of the population aren't nerds. Most phone buyers don't even care about what phone they buy (The reason for the majority of Android sales) Gzh, GPRS, MPIX, HSPA, BluetoothERD2, WAP2.1, Wifi AC and so on... People don't care. The spec thinking have killed many computer/phone companies. When you buy a car: Is it because of the specs? No. The specs only have a small influence. People want "new" things. Just look at the graphic cards. Each year AMD/Nvidia rebrand last years card, just to make them new. With Apple there have at least always been better hardware.

You're so outdated. Nerds are so 1980's. Obviously you're not on top of the new things game yourself. They're called Geeks now and very much cool to be a geek. After all it was the geeks who have us the iPhones and the new cars. Check yourself. Hahaha. So people DO care. That being said. I love my iPhone and will get whatever Apple rings out. Bus because its apple and its ok to be a fan boy. Fu(k you.
