There have been more leaks about the innovations we may see with the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6.
While there may be no major shake-up in terms of design for the iPhone 5S, users may see a significantly improved display. The phone could also come with a 12 megapixel camera and dual LED flash.
There may also be some form of fingerprint scanner, an idea which has been doing the rounds since a developer found plans for biometric scanning in a folder tucked away in the iOS7 beta.
Looking ahead to the iPhone 6, patent filings have suggested this smartphone might be the first in the world to have a liquid metal handset, and could be launched along with a plastic-bodied budget iPhone as early as this autumn.
But a statement by Apple CEO Tim Cook would seem to suggest there will be no larger screen in the new version of the phone.
“Some customers value large screen size, others value other factors such as resolution, colour quality, white balance, brightness, reflectivity, screen longevity, power consumption, portability, compatibility with apps and many things,” he said.
“Our competitors had made some significant trade-offs in many of these areas in order to ship a larger display. We would not ship a larger display iPhone while these trade-offs exist.”
