If recent rumours are to be believed, Apple is, for the first time ever, readying to launch more than one iPhone model this year. As many as three different models could be in the works including the iPhone 5S, the iPhone Math with a larger 4.8-inch display, and a third model. Now, pictures of one of the components headed into at least two of these have allegedly surfaced. In themselves, they reveal little but their somewhat different designs suggest that there are indeed different models coming (or Apple is playing wit different prototypes).
The images obtained by French blog nowhereelse.fr show speaker components that are allegedly headed to the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6. In the image below, the iPhone 5S speaker is on the left and the iPhone 6’s on the right:
The Apple iPhone 5S would likely be an updated version of the iPhone 5, looking quite similar to it but with upgraded components (possibly including a 12MP camera). The iPhone 6 would be a completely new version.
The report adds that the first model will launch sometime between March and July. A second one would then launch late in the year. It’s not clear from the report when the third, the iPhone Math, would be released (earlier rumours suggested it would launch along the iPhone 5S in June).
We’ll continue to follow the story and see it takes us.
