If not, I'll upgrade the phone.
I feel less of me - I usually update annually but this 8 month BS hurts re sale values.

I thinks it is a minor upgrade for the chinese market.
It seems the iphone 5 doesn' t seem to be working on the network of China Mobile. That is the largest mobile provider in China.

So they will have to change the Qualcomm chip.

This is just like the rumors of the upgrade of the iphone 4, this turned out to be the Verizon version.

Build the 5S, but don't release it. Let the next iPhone be the iPhone 6 and let it be incredible. But give the 5 a long shelf life. As long as iOS 7 is bloody good, it'll be like people are getting a whole new phone anyway.

Sounds like you are disappointed with IOS6 not IPhone 5.

Apple won't be Android simple as.
