Tech News: The Hottest iPhone Rumors Of The Summer

Posted on August 26, 2013
It’s that time of year and the rumor mill is spinning nonstop.  No, we’re not talking about heading back to school we’re talking about the dizzying, high expectations of Apple’s newest iPhone, said to be hitting stores early September.  If you haven’t been tuned into the tech grapevine this summer we’re here to fill you in on the most popular rumors that just might be true.

1. The new, cheap iPhone 5C
This seems to be the whisper that won’t go away.  Pundits, techies and analysts alike have been predicting since last year that a wallet-friendly addition to the iPhone family was on it’s way. Experts tend to agree that a more affordable iPhone would be the necessary catalyst for Apple product proliferation in the  global marketplace, especially in countries like China.  It is believed that this new phone could possibly replace the 4S and would be a pared down model without features like Siri.  It would be made of plastic, versus the aluminum and metal materials used for the iPhone 5 and retail around $199, with a contract.

2. Fingerprint I.D.
Last year Apple acquired AuthenTech, famous for their fingerprint-sensor technology, for three hundred and fifty million dollars.  This move made waves, and now many predict that Apple will put their new purchase to use in iPhones and possibly tablets. This would predictably change the face of device security as fingerprints would eclipse passwords.  Experts are predicting this iPhone would be dubbed the 5S.

3. Shades of things to come
Remember those now vintage iBooks and desktops that came in a rainbow of colors? We know that, on occasion, Apple does dabble in different areas of the color wheel – as we saw more recently with iPod minis.  One of the rumors getting the most attention is the iPhone Gold, which is exactly what it sounds like, and would represent a total visual departure from what we know as the iPhone brand.

4.  Best of both worlds?
There’s a growing opinion, or perhaps wishful thinking, that this fall Apple will do what it’s never done before and release two new phones, both the 5C and 5S, simultaneously.  Could that be hoping for too much?
What rumor are you banking on? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
