Rumors Abound: iPhone 5S Could Have June Pre-Orders

It is tough to ferret a rumor out when the company you’re talking about is as tight-lipped as Apple. That said, rumors abound, most notably claiming that Apple’s new iPhone 5S is going to see a June launch. For those consumers who have trained themselves to believe that iPhone launches accompany the autumn chill, this is exciting news.

If the rumors are true, Apple will have pulled off quite a feat because of the capabilities of cellphones. Not only will they need to roll out a phone with greater-than-ever capabilities, but they will have to make sure it doesn’t face the same criticisms as its predecessors.

New Operating System

Half the fun of talking about a product we have yet to see, hold or use is guessing what makes it special. According to, and others, this new incarnation of the iPhone will come powered with iOS7, the latest operating system Apple has to offer. The hope, of course, is that iOS7 outperforms iOS6, known for its problems with Google Maps.

IPhone Mini

Although Apple has promised that there will be no changes to the size of the iPhone 5S screen, there are rumors of an iPhone mini being offered. Few seem to believe Tim Cook’s size-change denials. The blogosphere is rippling with rumors of two or three screen sizes being made available, according to CNET.

Wireless Charger

Further murmurs involve the ability to wirelessly charge the iPhone 5S. This will be in direct response to customer complaints regarding problems with battery life. Battery life has been a bane of existence for iPhone users and their deeply ingrained love of apps.

Updated Utilities

Fans are expecting a better camera, faster processor, better software and LED technology referred to as “Smart Flash.”

Fingerprint Scanning

One of the juiciest and most exciting rumors regarding the 5S is that it may come with fingerprint scanning technology, according to Forbes. Apple purchased AuthenTec’s embedded security system, hoping to get in front of the problem of digital identity theft. Because consumers have come to rely on their smartphones for everything from online banking to sending private emails, Apple is betting on the buyer’s desire to protect its identity.

Like any good rumor, this particular one has its detractors. Skeptics say that fingerprint scanning is likely to come after the 5S due to the complexity of manufacturing. Reuters recently reported that Apple may be having trouble in finding a suitable coating material, a product that won't hinder the new technology.

There are further questions regarding Apple’s ability to work all the kinks out of a fingerprint scanning system prior to a summer roll out, and whether it might be safer for the technology giant to hold off until they’re sure they have it right.
