Jefferies & Co. analyst Peter Misek is the bearer of possible bad news for prospective iPhone 5s owners. In a note sent to investors on Friday, Misek said production of the iPhone 5s this year will be lower than expected.
It has been widely speculated that one of the major new features of iPhone 5S will be the fingerprint sensor that will allow users to unlock their device without entering the password.
iPhone 5C component leaks continue to appear, even as we’re just days away from Apple’s September 10 media event, where the device will be announced. Photos of what seem to be the iPhone 5C’s logic board have been posted on Chinese websites, showing little difference from the iPhone 5S’ board, which had leaked a few months back.
It’s the week before Apple’s big press event, and speculation about the iPhone 5S and its fingerprint sensor are running rampant on the Internet. The latest theory comes from AppleInsider, which claims the rumored silver ring around the iPhone 5S’ Home button is more than a decoration, it’s an integral part of the fingerprint sensor.
After years of negotiations, Apple may have finally inked an iPhone distribution deal with the world’s largest wireless carrier, China Mobile. Apple allegedly told Foxconn to add China Mobile to its list of carriers that are eligible to receive the iPhone 5C. Details on when the phones will land with the Chinese carrier were not revealed, but we will likely find out more during Apple’s September 11th event in Beijing.
Photos of the alleged graphite iPhone 5S rear casing have revealed that it will also come with a graphite or grey color backplate with contrasting black pigmented glass inlays at the top and the bottomÂ and graphite colored antenna bands along the sides.
