iPhone 5s feature rumour

9to5* reporting that iPhone 5s will have:

IGZO Display
NFC
12MP cam (with dual flash)
Fingerprint scanner

Coupled with perhaps some 5s only software feature in ios7, could be a decent upgrade from the 5 but only rumours and possibly unreliable ones at that.

Thoughts?

When it comes to rumors we can suggest anything. But my money is on the iPhone 6 before there will be "real" inovation. Might see a little better camera on the 5S as it would take little to do that, maybe add a few bucks to the cost of the phone.

These features would make a S model worthwhile.

Tick / tock product cycle.

My thought is a bunch of people will get in a tizzy over anticipated features... then be sadly disappointed when their fantasy expectations don't prove out. They'll be the ones on the "it sucks!" bandwagon.

With most gadgets, after the first couple generations you shift into evolutionary improvements and the end user is better served upgrading every other generation.

Even though its an S upgrade, apple realizes that they can't put out a new flagship device with only an upgraded camera. I'd bet the house that this is going to be the biggest S upgrade to date. Just wait and see.

Well honestly the biggest feature is iOS 7,everything else would be just an upgrade,just like every "s" has been better camera,processor,graphics,ram and as we've heard probably better retina display with igzo.Basically iOS 7 with the new design and the features like airdrop that comes with it is something new,oh almost forgot about the rumors of fingerprint scanner.So if it comes with all that stuff it would be worth to upgrade especially if you are on older iPhones like 4 or even 4s.

I hope you are right as I will be replacing my 5 with the 5S unless the person who is to "inherit" my 5 kills me for my phone, first!

This would be a pretty big S upgrade. And would be a good upgrade from the iPhone 5.

I'd buy without any hesitation.

Like most, I expect to see another 4" iPhone.

From the beginning, Apple should have planned to offer a 4.2" or 4.3" iPhone 5S/6, in roughly the same form factor, this holiday season. That feature would have encouraged far, far more people to upgrade than the other features listed. Consumers don't get upgrade envy with they see a new phone that looks exactly like the one they already own.

Apple needs to squeeze as many upgrades as they can out of the installed base of iPhone users to satisfy shareholders, and a 4.0" phone won't accomplish that. With a 4.3" phone, many users would upgrade. And then many would upgrade again next year for a 4.7" phone. Skipping directly from 4.0" this year to 4.7" next year eliminates an upgrade cycle that would undoubtedly have net billions of dollars for Apple and its shareholders.

What do you suppose would be the likely next model name... Hmmm....

Apple could certainly go with an ipad-esque "the new iPhone" scheme and drop the numbering.
