    Apple is expected to begin trial production of a new version of its iPhone 5, or iPhone 5S, in December with initial production volumes likely to top 50,000-100,000 units, according to a Chinese-language Commercial Times report.

    As I said in the main News article about this - it isn't so unlikely.

    In the UK, the 4G spectrum auction is still underway. At the moment, only EE can use part of their old spectrum for 4G and the big names such as Vodaphone and O2 cannot. When the auction concludes early next year, the current iPhone5 will not support the 4G frequencies which are still being auctioned off.

    The 5S will be needed to support the new 4G frequencies.

    Why would people want a faster processor than this? If they increase the battery life , sure that's good but other than that.. No ty.

    I dunno, even if the new models are branded 5S, I can't imagine they'd have significant hardware upgrades beyond the new radios needed for compatibility. Could Apple really be prepared to manufacture and roll out a substantially improved product some three months after it began production of its current flagship product, already having encountered production issues along the way, at that?
