    There have been rumours everywhere saying June, August, or October as the release date. I think that Apple would release a phone sooner rather than later, BUT for a June release date, they would need to start beta testing of iOS 7—assuming that iOS 7 will ship with the 5S. For this reason, they may choose their more recent fall dates. Thoughts?

    Fun Fact: The iPhone 5 came out half a year ago today.

    I think it will be late summer, July/August timeframe.

    Announced in June, available in August, and iPhone 6 rumors in October.

    That doesn't make sense...

    iPhone orders usually happen 7-10 days after they are announced.

    Likely August or early September. Apparently the iPhone 5 was due in August but was moved to September due to delays iirc. I'm expecting the next iPhone to arrive around the same time.

    Looks like mixed results so far. I'd like to get my first ever iPhone soon, and I need one by July. So I'm in a bit of a pickle. If the 5S comes out after July, then it won't make a difference to me and waiting that long would've been a waste of time. If, however, it comes out in June and I get a 5 now, then I'll be annoyed.

    What to do? :confused:

    Highly doubt they release a phone in less than 12 months since a prior release. October

    I'm hoping for sooner rather than later, even if it means iOS7 comes later in the year.

    Same, I bought the iPhone 5 just 2 weeks ago ... I would be extremely annoyed if the 5s comes out in June

    i think October will be reasonable, cause apple always takes long time to wait, but hope it will bring big surprise for us.:D

    Define big...because unless Apple introduces a 5'' screen, totally recamped iOS 7, or some crazy new feature equal to Retina display or Siri, I think having this much high hope for a S upgrade is just asking for disappointment.

    The iPhone 5S's big feature is going to be its 13MP camera or the fingerprint sensor.

    I can't see Apple releasing the iPhone 5S, iPad 5, and iPad Mini all in October.

    I think it will be somewhere in October. Apple should deliver a truly good (without any great bugs) gadget and it will take time to develop it.

    buy used from ebay or craigslist and sell when 5s comes out. iphones usually hold their resale value quite well and you will lose at most $50.
