Date added: 05/08/2013 iPhone 5S Rumours
It hasn’t even been a year since the iPhone 5 was released onto the market, but already the technology rumour mill is in overdrive with tales of the suspected launch of the next model of iPhone. Recent whisperings have covered various topics, such as the release of an iPhone 5S, an iPhone 6, and even a ‘light’ version of the iPhone, apparently to be called the iPhone C – a budget model, made from plastic which could possibly retail at just £63.00.
Those in the know have wagered that the next iPhone model to be released will be the 5S, purely based on the fact that Apple have provided us with a new iPhone version every year since they began manufacture. While some think that improvements may cover things such as internet speed – the 5S is rumoured to have a connection that is ten times as fast as the current 3G – others have been quick to speculate on much more impressive technology.
For any iPhone owner, security is always a huge concern, and while there’s always the option of a password, nothing is infallible. Except, of course, fingerprint recognition – leaked photographs and computer coding have caused experts to ponder on the fact that the iPhone 5S may possibly have cracked owners security worries by including a fingerprint scanner. This technology, which is rumoured to be delaying the release of the next generation iPhone, is thought to be the answer to unauthorised purchases within the Apple App Store, and also to the theft of personal data.
The second rumour exciting the Apple fans, is that the next generation iPhone is to be made of something completely different – a unique composition known as LiquidMetal. This material is incredible; it’s two to three times harder than normal metals, yet can still be injection moulded, which means that you get all of the clean, sleek Apple design, but with the added bonuses of it being scratch resistant and incredibly light. Given that Apple signed an agreement with LiquidMetal Technologies back in 2010, and that leaked images claim to have shown SIM card trays made from this particular material, it’s looking more and more likely that the next iPhone will be virtually indestructible. All we can do now, is wait and see.
