Chinese whisper: iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 spotted at eastern supplier

Chinese whisper: iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 spotted at eastern supplierAs 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?

My godparent's namesake's roommate's pen pal saw it. Trust me.

"Or maybe just tons of bezel."
This! After all, Mr. Cook said a 4" screen is the perfect size.

Got to love the iphone rumours appearing due to the S4's release date getting closer.

In China they sell Apple-branded portable stoves. Enough said.

No, those are just round Stoves sold by Mr Ping...

(you need to understand basic mandarin to get that joke^)

So that joke will go down really well here then...

Shhhh :p

I dont think that far ahead. Basically pingguo means apple in chinese. Guo means like round or something like that. So that's why I said they're not apple branded stoves, buy round stoves sold by Mr Ping...

Yeh ill just shut up now...

They most certainly are one of a kind ;).

Also, on a note which relates to everyone, has anyone else's "Active Discussions" section gone walkabouts from the Mobot homepage?

Pondlife  Feb. 9, 2013 at 16:53

yep, still appears on other pages but gone from there. At least notifications stopped going mad

AhmadCentral  Feb. 9, 2013 at 17:28

Lol, I thought it was just me haha. Notifications wouldn't go away and active discussions have disappeared...

matt101101 / MOD  Feb. 9, 2013 at 17:34

Notifications seem to be fixed, but I'm glad I'm not the only one who's missing their active discussions bar.
