If you need a new phone then get the iPhone 5 now, it's no use waiting for the "newest" iPhone. If you go that route you'll be waiting forever. The iPhone 5 is still a relatively new device. Also, no one exactly knows when the iPhone 5S will come out. Remember the iPhone 4S? Wasn't that supposed to come out in the summer of 2011, but got pushed back to the fall?

The performance jump seen from 5 to 5S will not be like the jump from 4S to 5.

The move from A5 to A6 SoC is akin to C2D to SNB in the 13" MBP.

If you want the 5, buy it.

I agree. In all likelyhood the next gen won't be drastically different/improved so i'd go for it now. I just got my son a 5 last week. 16GB from Walmart was 129 with 2 year contract which was a sweet deal.
