Analyst: The Apple iPhone 5S will give consumers a choice of screen size and color
Topeka Capital Market analyst Brian White has been conducting some supply chain checks, and what he sees is that the so-called Apple iPhone 5S will offer consumers some real choices when launched.  This will give iOS users a similar experience to buyers of Android flavored models who can choose from devices with different screen sizes, colors, features and price points.

White sees production on the next Apple iPhone beginning in March/April with the product launch due in May/June. On Monday, we told you how some app developers are beginning to see their apps tested on the next Apple iPhone and iOS 7. The analyst sees Apple offering the Apple iPhone 5S in a variety of colors such as pink, yellow, blue, white & silver and black & slate.

That wasn't funny

Tim Cook is possibly getting bold that he can prove Jobs was wrong again after iPad mini success. I think this will lower Apple's margins but customers will have more choices.

I will encourage anything that offers more choices and value to us users, Apple or not. But Apple is stil an evil and I don't think they will change.

Since when does Apple care about consumer's choices? Apple costumers get only two choices: take it or leave it.

It is funny if you know how to laugh at simple things. Lumia powered iPhone...too bad Apple can't patent colors.

I don't know man, according to the like/dislike ratio of both of your comments, it seems that it was very funny.

OMG, that was soooo funny that iPeed in my pants! I can't wait for another bar discovery. Incidentally, I thought the next iPhone was going to be called the "5C"?? Either way, it will be great that iPhone owners will now have choices (besides what connector to use).

Apple looks like it's doing some catching up work, only thing I'm interested in is iOS 7 which I hope brings some change not another row of icons.

So essentially the iPod Touch will finally be able to make calls. /joke With that in mind though, color options don't seem that far of a stretch. Multiple screen sizes, yes, that's a stretch to believe.

Really having a tough time believing that they would have multiple screen sizes. Developers are going to start getting aggravated. First there was the iPhone, then the iPad. Then the iPhone and iPad doubled those dimensions with retina displays. Not a huge deal to change. The iPhone 5 messed things up, by adding an entirely unrelated resolution. A retina iPad mini should be able to hold the resolution of an iPad 3, but a multi-sized iPhone is just another thing for devs to have to adjust.

apple : we have color variety now for all people that want something different and fresh. the fan: we can customize with our new magical iphone 5s now. profit ??? and it will be 4inch. they weren't gonna make it any bigger than that maybe in 10 or 20 years. good luck to them.

My guess is the biggest will be 4.3, then Apple will try and pull a Razr M. But in all seriousness they are most likely going to make 3 screen size differences. 1.) 3.5 (obviously) for the tiny handed 2.) 4.0 for the normal handed 3.) (possibly) 4.3 for the big handed

yeah because like we all know android was the first with widgets right, and everything you lot brag about on android never existed before did it? sick of the double standards get over yourself android werent the first and as for the better for samsung part, it isnt they will loose money but wont effect them drastically, same for apple they will loose an excellent manufacture which could prove a problem for them stop your one sided crap thanks

Whats the point In having an iPhone in different colors? Every single person I know who has an iPhone has a case on it.

They could always make a tougher phone. Apple's in need of something huge. Build something strong enough to survive most accidents, call it the world's strongest phone, and you've got a winner. No case necessary.

Different screen sizes! This will put apple back in the race. keeping the quality and maybe a 5 inch screen. I say back in the game. Now just lower all the extra s**t you have to pay for and we will talk
