Apple begins iPhone 5s production for July/August launch

technologyEdward KiledjianComment

A new report sent to the Wall Street Journal says Apple will begin production of the next generation iPhone sometime in Q2 (aka starting now). The report claims the new device (iPhone 5s) will have the same shape and design of the existing iPhone 5.

The report provides the same release info other rumors have mentioned, which is a July/August lunch. The much rumored “cheap” iphone for developing countries is expected sometime in the second half of the year.

I have been an iPhone user from the very beginning but am now feeling left behind when comparing device functionality to major Android competitors. If the iPhone 5s only increases CPU and GPU speed, I worry many will jump ship to competing Android device which seem to be offering a much more compelling solution.
