Apple began iPhone 5S production
Apple has started the production of iPhone 5S in the factories of its partner Foxconn, according to the Japanese blog Macotakara. The announcement of the device is expected in June of this year.
According to the blog, build iPhone 5S is carried out on the same production lines as the iPhone 5. Foxconn builds until production to the planned scope of the supplier has not yet emerged.
iPhone 5S – Apple next-generation smartphone, the announcement of which, according to the information KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Ko, to be held in June 2013, along with a cheaper model of iPhone.
It is expected that the device will have a more powerful processor Apple A7, a new built-in flash, a fingerprint scanner and a battery of high capacity.
It is assumed that the processor Apple A7 will have 4 cores instead of 2 in the Apple A6, which is in the iPhone 5. In addition, it is expected that the new chip will be equipped with 2 GB of RAM, compared to 1 GB in A6 (RAM processors Apple is in the same housing with cores) and graphics PowerVR SGX554MP4, borrowed from the iPad 4 processor – Apple A6X.
iPhone 5S will require a hardware upgrade because it goes on sale with a new version of the OS – iOS 7.0, – which will be more demanding on resources. Of the innovations in the platform is expected to expand voice control function Siri.
As for the design of iPhone 5S, it will remain the same as the iPhone 5: Apple traditionally maintains the previous generation smartphone design, increasing its power and functionality (for example, it was with iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, released in 2010 and 2011 respectively).
Analysts also believe that in 2013 Apple could update the iPhone to go twice a year and, thus, produce iPhone 6 before the end of the year, in the fall. However, recent reports blog Macotakara, the presentation of this generation will be held no earlier than next year.
Note that in the last year in July blog Macotakara reported the launch of the iPhone 5, that is, two months before his announcement. Perhaps, this time, the company decided to start production early in order to avoid a repeat of the iPhone 5 coming out from the factory with scratches on the body. Following those Apple strengthened quality control, and the market is a deficit of new smartphones.
