Apple iPhone 5S

Apple is rumored to introduce the (refreshing new) iOS 7 packing iPhone 5S sometime in the August-October timeframe later this year, and that the next iteration might come with an interesting new paint job, namely Gold. Sound royal doesn’t it? The Gold flavor will be offered alongside the usual White and Black ones. Hopefully the glittering color doesn’t shoot the price tag up to 4 digits.

Reports suggest that the iPhone 5S will pack the same 4-inch display size as the iPhone 5, but might boast of a higher resolution (more pixels). The CPU under the hood might be the new Apple A7 (a quad-core). Of course, an improved camera and the new iOS 7 are also in tow.

Budget Apple iPhone

Apple seems to be transitioning to a more colorful approach with their OS and phones (I mean just look at those shades on iOS 7), as the cheaper budget-oriented iPhone is alleged to come in multiple colors with interchangeable backplates. Taking a leaf out of Nokia’s Lumia strategy eh?
