As I’ve mentioned before, we take a modicum of pride in not reporting every single iPhone 5S/iPhone 6 rumour, but this one is too good to let go.
We’re hearing, via a Chinese microblogging site, that the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 have been spotted at an eastern supplier. Admittedly that’s not overly crazy, but it gets better.
The iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 rumour was posted by someone called Old Yao (brilliant), who in turn credits his friend. Yeah, my cousin’s friend saw them too. Last week. Honest.
According to Old Yao (and friend), the iPhone 5S looks pretty much like an iPhone 5. It’s widely expected to have slightly enhanced internals, in keeping with Apple’s throw-an-S-on-the-end-and-up-the-specs-a-bit tradition.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 6 is said to be wider, longer and thinner than the iPhone 5, which obviously means a larger display. Or maybe just tons of bezel. Nah, that’d be silly. Like this story.
As far as iPhone 5S rumours go, Old Yao’s ramblings are up there with the proposed 4.8in iPhone ‘Math’. Not that I’m doubting a larger iPhone in due course; there’s clearly a market for phablets. But iPhone Math?
