The Apple iPhone 5 has remained one of most popular smartphone models in recent months, and the latest record breaking success for the California based technology giant. The success of this model has of course led to plenty of excitement and speculation about the key features of its replacement model, believed to be called the Apple iPhone 5S. In recent weeks, there has been an increasing amount of information regarding its features is well as leaked images of the device, pointing to its imminent announcement and release.

Of course, Apple is yet to officially announce its next generation iPhone model, but several industry analysts have reported when the phone is likely to begin production and when it will hit the market. Recently, GSM Arena reported that Peter Misek, a Jeffries analyst has claimed that mass production of the iPhone 5S model will commence by the end of this month.

He further claims that the iPhone Light, rumoured to be a budget iPhone model may already have entered production. This information backs up recent reports that one of Apple’s key manufacturing partners, Foxconn has recently taken on a large number of additional staff. This certainly suggests that Apple is soon to commence production of a new product, and is the latest sign pointing to the iPhone 5S hitting the market in the near future.

Additionally, Misek claims that Apple is gearing up to announce the iPhone 5S in late September or early October, which would suggest that the phone will be released shortly after. Of course, as we’re still awaiting an announcement of the device, there is no official information available regarding its specifications. Recent rumours have suggested that it will utilise the same format as the current iPhone 5 model, but will see an improved camera and more processing power, and the recently announced iOS 7 software update. There have also been suggestions that the device will pack a fingerprint scanner and LTE-Advanced connectivity.

Of course, we expect much more information about the iPhone 5S to be revealed in the coming weeks, so as usual we will keep you posted with the latest updates. For cheap iPhone 5 prices, visit our website.
