We are barely into the first week of 2013 and already the rumors of the next iPhone are starting to hit the interwebs. It appears that The Next Web has come across some Apple developer logs indicating that “Apple has been testing hardware relating to a new ‘iPhone6,1′ identifier, powered by a device running iOS 7, which is expected to be released by Apple in the middle part of this year.”
Anonymous sources have told The Next Web that “Apple began working on the new version of iOS 7 towards the end of 2012 and is soon to finalize the features that will be included in its first public release.” The rumors about the next iPhone launch always seem to start as soon as the latest devices is released and it seems that this trend is holding tight. Back in December there were rumors that Apple wanted to have the iPhone 6 ready for release at WWDC in June but that has never been confirmed. If true though, then it makes perfect sense why Apple engineers are already working on components for the new device.
I tell you, the Apple that we’ve been seeing lately is definitely not Steve Jobs’ Apple, the company definitely seems to be increasing the frequency of releases of their products (early iPad 3 owners are still a bit pissed about that), perhaps in an effort to stem the tide of never-ending onslaught of Android based devices.
So what do you think folks, I mean if this proves true then the iPhone 5 won’t even have been out a year when this phone releases. If they keep this up, it might be smarter to skip every other version, you won’t miss much. Is Apple in risk of alienating their core customers or is this necessary to them remaining relevant? You tell us what you think in the comments.
