iPhone 5S Rumors Begin

The competitive smart phone market is forcing Apple to adapt


A new report today claiming Apple is prepping an iPhone 5S for test production in December and volume manufacturing early in 2013 is spreading like wildfire through the blogosphere. The initial source is Chinese-language publication The Commercial Times, and it's being spread by Digitimes, the supply chain-focused publication that's a frequent, and fairly unreliable source of rumor and speculation. But is there any way Apple could really be working towards updating a phone it just released in September?
