I saw the apple ios 7 and I think it's really cool but it says it comes out in the fall. I was planning on getting the iPhone 5 soon but now I don't know if I should wait for the ios 7 because I want that or is it just an update? I can't figure it out, it looks just like the iPhone 5. So can someone please tell me a little about it but especially if I should wait because it's a new phone or is it an update?

It is an update to the Iphone 4/4s/5. It is not a new iPhone. That is not to say they do not release a new iPhone this fall but there is no official word on that right now.

There no official word but we all know that a new iPhone is coming this fall, from the rumored leaks, which are usually somewhat reliable, the 5S isn't looking to be that much of an upgrade.

it's a new phone, I'm enjoying the beta version of it right now. So much faster than the iPhone 5, can't wait til you noobs get this in september. I also have the iPad 8 and it's faster than the fastest super computers. Enjoy!
