Apple iPhone 5S models photographed in black, gold and silver may be fake
Every picture that we have seen of the Apple iPhone 5S included a pill shaped dual-LED flash on the back of the device. This is conspicuously missing from the new pictures that were released this morning. The Apple iPhone 5S will be the new top-shelf model of the phone with the Apple iPhone 5 expected to slide down to become the mid-range offering and the Apple iPhone 5C allegedly slotted as the budget priced model. There has been some speculation that the Apple iPhone 5C is actually not a budget priced model and is actually a replacement for the Apple iPhone 5.
All will be revealed on September 10th when Apple is scheduled to unveil its new Apple iPhone models

Nice to see that you also agree with amilcarmz86 and InspectorGadget80, because usually you are in denial and so on. :)

Enough of the photos of the iPhone 5C and 5S.

For once I agree. PA needs to stop with posting the same article over and over with iPhone rumors.

And lose their ad revenue given by several vicious clicks? Nah... even if a 4 year old kid draws something that looks like an iPhone, they'll post it saying that the kid is a paranormal that saw how the next iPhone would look like. Or if a pigeon poo'd on Apple's logo on Cupertino HQ they'd make up some "breaking news" about it and what it could mean for the company's near future...
Come on, it's Phone Arena, not iPhone Arena (until now, I guess.)
P.S. I don't think the ad companies pay for my adblock-ed version of the page though...

PA writers are too smart. They only do it to start the flame war because many of their subscribers just can't help themselves. Let's just ignore these everytime. It's been absolutely crazy with these. I know news is slow but d**n. Maybe they should have more contests like the photo one from earlier instead of baiting a flame war.

I'm pretty sure they're blatantly mocking us at this point.
"Oh, so you've had enough of the 45 stories we've already done on 'what freaking color the next iPhone has allegedly been pictured in and/or is rumored to come in'? WELL HERE'S ANOTHER ONE!!! ENJOY CONTRIBUTING TO OUR REVENUE, YA BUNCH OF RUBES!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!"
...Or at least that's what I imagine is going on behind the scenes at PhoneArena World HQ...

If it looks the same as the last model how will people know I upgraded?

Break the phone & show them internal specs

is very simple.. people have yet to ask me if I upgraded.. al they say "nice iphone" but if the ask you.. you tell them that you did infact upgraded they should believe your words if not... then why are you worried about that questions.. as you can see no need to panic on that question.. just keep calm and enjoy the awesomess of your device..

Drip drip drip....Will Apple have anything left to announce?
17. Commentator (Posts: 2186; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
Unless their only announcement is going to be that the iPhone will (apparently) be available in the rumored 274,625,184,028,174 different colors that PA has reported on, there's probably a few things left.

It would be the funniest thing if Apple never had any plans on releasing a plastic model in different colors and just made the current iPhone 5 the $100 model. How embarrassing would that be for the blog sites? They would have been reporting garbage for months.

And yet it will still be a 4" screen with barely upgraded hardware. Is Apple even trying anymore?

But...but it has DUAL LED! This changes everything! Shut up and take my money!!!

I think PA needs to diversify past:
The "next" iPhone as soon as the new model is released.
Samsung owning the Android world.
HTC trying to get better but failing.
The impending doom of RI.... I mean Blackberry.
