Don't hold your breath for the iPhone 6/5S today

Don't hold your breath for the iPhone 6/5S today
So, Apple's WWDC 2013 keynote is about to take place in just a few hours, and we can already sense that there are quite a few people out there who'll be waiting with bated breath for a new iPhone. Unfortunately, while Apple used to unveil new iPhones at WWDC in the beginning, iPhone announcements eventually moved to a later date - usually sometime in September. When it comes to the iPhone 6, 5S, or whatever it's called, rumors are consistent that history will repeat itself and Apple is to announce and release its latest smartphone in the late Q3 - early Q4 time frame.

That's why, although nothing is impossible, what we're going to see today will most probably be just a sneak peek at iOS 7. We just wanted to clear that out for our visitors who don't necessarily read every single news post that we publish. But that doesn't mean the announcements won't be interesting. Quite the contrary - there are tremendous expectations towards iOS 7, as this will be the first time that the platform is to receive a major visual overhaul. With a new design chief, iOS 7 is slated to offer a more simplistic look (Would that appeal to you?), though we certainly hope that Apple has also prepared some rather cool new features to debut with iOS 7.

Stay tuned for our coverage of WWDC 2013, it'll be fun! The keynote is scheduled to begin at 1PM ET | 12PM CT | 11AM MT | 10AM PT | 5PM GMT | 7PM CET.

iOS 7 looks like any other iOS, except the icons are different. (REAL INNOVATION HERE.) I really don't know about this Apple...

I hope you have more up your sleeve or I can officially stick a fork in you.

Let me not jump the gun here & wait until WWDC finally starts.

Also what is going on here?!? No RED Thumb Downs?!? lol

PhoneArena.com doesn't like the color red huh?

I think they have removed it due to the release of "revolutionary" iOS 7. If you know what I mean.

It's okay people will adapt and start writing harsh comments when they disagree with someone instead of just giving them a thumbs down.

Can you tell me whats wrong with the thumb down button?
You also had that option, you could also gave thumb down to WP/ Blackberry/ Android users or anything you didn't like. Creepy pathetic.
Ignore grammar :p

i was actually wondering why they had the thumbs down option at all. Every article was filled with a red comment section

Yes the timing is pretty ...convenient, but the red thumbs have gotten out of hand lately, and not just on iOS articles. I've been seeing my own comments downthumbed into oblivion for pure partisan reasons. I try to post critically, and I saw red every time I said something critical (even if it was a valid observation) of Samsung.

If there's something groundbreaking it wont be from apple it will be from an earthquake and that's highly unlikely.

whether we like it or not, it does not matter.. it is news, and these news affect both iOS and Android the same...

And being early to know what they are introducing, give us better knowledge to discuss if its actually innovation, evolution, or just plain crap...

right now it looks like the later...

I guess iOS 7 wont actually be released any time soon. I guess we'll have to wait till whenever they bring out the 5S.
