Apple iPhone 5S models photographed in black, gold and silver may be fake

Apple iPhone 5S models photographed in black, gold and silver may be fake
An earlier report on Thursday showed the Apple iPhone 5S in other precious metal colors besides gold. A published report on Thursday included photographs of the Apple iPhone 5S in the traditional black, gold and in silver.  And while we would be more than happy to see Apple's iconic smartphone offered in multiple colors, there is a good reason to suspect that the pictures are not real. This comes right after word has come out that those Apple iPhone 5C models in black could also 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
