Apple to start trial runs of an improved iPhone 5S in December, new iPad mini on tap for 2013

The initial batch trials are said to be 50,000-100,000 units, claim the paper's sources, with production ramping up for shipments in the first quarter of next year. Now we doubt that Apple will introduce an upgraded version of the iPhone 5 so soon after its announcement, though it already broke the annual upgrade cycle trend with the iPad 4, releasing it just half a year after the new iPad launched...

iPhone 5S. Where the 'S' stands for 'Shoulda' this time around because this is what the iPhone 5 'shoulda' been.

I mean let's face it, the only reason they're releasing this "iPhone 5S" is to fix everything that was wrong with the original iPhone 5 (and of course add some new features from the iPad Mini).

So y did they release a 3GS and 4S? Lets face it they're releasing it cuz it follows the pattern that they release in other than the time frame.
