Business Insider: Apple starting production of iPhone 5S in December

5
If the iPhone 5S follows the same hardware release pattern as the 4S, we can expect another camera upgrade.

In a move that has some iPhone 5 owners frustrated, Apple will reportedly begin to manufacture the iPhone 5S in December. The news was originally reported by the Chinese-language news site the Commercial Times and picked up by Digitimes and Business Insider.

According to Business Insider:

The initial run will be small: 50,000-100,000 units. 

Apple has reportedly "accelerated" the certification process for parts and materials in the new phone because of production problems with the iPhone 5.

The iPhone 5S is expected to hit full production in the first quarter, which might suggest a spring release. That would be a first for a new iPhone. For the first several years, the new models were launched in June, with the launches shifting to September in the past two years.

I am sure Apple is going to offer much more exciting features in iPhone 5S than what it offered in Phone 5.
Thanks

iPhone5 indeed is a rip off, promising so much but delivering a less convincing product hurray for Apple indeed you made your follower to like you less and hate you more . . .

Did they realize that adding another static app row is stupid and actually willing to increase the width of their 2007-era screen?
