    This was posted on the Cult of the Mac website. Not sure if this has been posted though. 2GB of ram sounds good especially for future iOS releases.

    One Chinese blog posted this several days ago.

    And then, there's a rumour that 5S will still use A6 process but clocked at higher speed, but the GPU is faster. And camera sports 13 MP instead of 12. Also, a 4.3 inch screen.

    Rumours are rumours after all, Apple has multiple prototypes so maybe "analysts" are confused.

    This is probably the 20th time this has been posted. As I write this, there are two other threads on the first page that discuss the same rumor.

    The December prototype showed that the nameless chip on the 5S only supports up to 1 GB of RAM. Honestly, I wouldn't be expecting 2 GB.

    I think the 12 MP camera is almost a given...

    Isn't "will have" and "rumor" in the same statement an oxymoron?

    Because Apple upgrades the camera?

    iPhone - 2MP
    iPhone 3G - 2MP
    iPhone 3GS - 3MP
    iPhone 4 - 5MP
    iPhone 4S - 8MP
    iPhone 5 - 8MP

    While Apple has always been stingy on the screen size they've been right near the leader of the pack when it comes to the cameras they put on their phones.

    Both the 4S & 5 had 8MP cameras, I can't imagine them releasing another 8MP camera, especially when historically the "S" series have only been modest upgrades or improvements. Going from 8 to 12 or 13 MP is a logical move for them.

    Except the first iPhone's screen size.

    The 4S was a huge upgrade over the 4. Dual diversity antennas. Introduced 4G/HSPA+ doubling cellular data speed. New generation microarchtecture with dual core CPU and GPU. This introduced multithreading which is a huge boon to responsiveness for user. 8MP, with fancy 5 element lens and 1080P video. Maybe more I'm forgetting.

    Possibly 12-13mp. Unless it's difficult to pull off the same lens system, with the larger sensor. Dual flash, and action video support may be all we see.

    I'm curious whether there are any 12 MP sensors that would actually make this an upgrade. I'm interested in improving the quality of the pictures, not the size. 8MP is already more res than I need to print my 4x6 or post 800x600 online.

    I think Apple is well aware that if its going to put a higher megapixel sensor it would need additional optics in the camera.

    Pretty sure the only one that can do it is probably Apple.

    I am not sure what you mean by additional optics as it relates to MP count. Especially since the sensor size is unlikely to change.

    I also don't see why only Apple can do this. I suspect they're only going to source existing technology, while a dedicated camera manufacturer is more likely to develop their own system.
