Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said the upcoming Apple iPhone 5S will have a 'killer feature' in an interview on the "Fast Money Halftime Report" with Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.

Barrons notes that Huberty predicted a big comeback for Apple due to software features for the phone, including a 'killer feature'.

"I do believe that AAPL is approaching a bottom. As you have heard, they are talking about returning more cash, and we think they will do that in coming weeks. But people don’t own AAPL for that, they own AAPL for innovation. You saw the Samsung Galaxy S4 come out last week, that shows you the innovation cards are up for grabs. What is lacking in that product [the S4] is a killer feature. We think that’s where Apple will surprise this year. This [iPhone] 5S cycle this year will be about a killer feature that drives consumers increasingly to the platform, and that increases the value of those 500 million accounts."

Apple is said to have already started production of the iPhone 5S which could feature a fingerprint scanner or even NFC capabilities. Release is rumored for between June and August.

Apple iPhone 3G, 4, 5 focuses on phone design much more than software features. 3GS, 4S and 5S focuses on speed, and new functionality. If Apple changed the design of their phone every 6 months, everyone would freak out that they have to buy new cases for their phone every 6 months. I think they have it right. When you buy a phone, you're stuck for at least 2-3 years before upgrading, so why would they change the look of their device every 6 months? Apple's iPhone still works well after 2-3 years, where Androids work like crap after a year and that's why you're always looking to upgrade. You can get the latest iOS on all Apple phones, can Android say that... yeah, that's what I thought. No support, because the phones can't handle shit after the month year it was made.
