Hot Rumors: Apple iPhone 5S with 13MP camera coming in July; Retina display iPad mini in October

Hot Rumors: Apple iPhone 5S with 13MP camera coming in July; Retina display iPad mini in October
Ah! A relaxing weekend following an amazing week that saw Apple and RIM exchange roles. BlackBerry is now seen as having the cool, innovative handset while Apple appears to have every bit of innovation sucked out of its body. Remember the scenes in Austin Powers where Austin loses his mojo? That's Apple, now. RIM's long-suffering shareholders have seen the stock nearly triple off its fall low while Apple dropped 12% last week alone, and is down 36% from its peak, ironically set on the day the Apple iPhone 5 launched.

Speaking of launches, a person who correctly called Apple's switch to a smaller docking connector, and apparently made some prescient calls on the third-generation iPad, has some information to pass along. Before we get to it, we should balance things by saying that this guy was wrong about NFC support on the iPad, but overall his record is pretty good. Anyhoo, the latest water cooler buzz has the Apple iPhone 5S being released in July. Not yet in production, the 7th generation iPhone will feature a 13MP Sony made camera on back. You might recall earlier rumors of Apple purchasing camera sensors from the Japanese tech giant.

Additionally, a new version of the Apple iPad mini, codenamed "J85," is scheduled for an October release with a Retina display. Outside of the improved screen resolution, which was a major complaint on the first version of the 7.9 inch tablet, the slate will feel just like the first model. Codenamed "J72," the fifth-generation of the Apple iPad is also penciled in for an October launch.

You might note that this rumor is like a high-school student's dream. No Math. That's right, there is no word on the alleged 4.8 inch version of Apple's iconic smartphone supposedly called the Apple iPhone Math.

Well, that was rather predictable, not? Would be disappointed if Apple doesn't come up with something suprising.

Why is it your only a troll if u don't hate/bash apple? Most, not all but most android users actually (TROLL) apple/iOS/iPhone articles all day everyday. They hop on every apple/iOS/iPhone related post, and bash, insult, and disrespect apple, iOS, iPhone, and the people who use them. They constantly roam PA iOS iPhone article to green thumb any anti apple posts, and red thumb any non anti apple posts. Isn't that the very definition of trolling?

May you have not been in the site long enough. There was a time that it was full of Apple trolls putting useless and disgusting comments in every Android post. Now what you see is just the ubiquity of Android, it´s not that MOST of Android fans are trolls, it´s just that as there are more people using it of course the number of trolls also increases (while the number of fanboys trolling has decreased too). But one thing is sure: you calling trolls to most of the android users is not helping at all to put out the flame wars.

I've been coming for years, and I never said apple doesn't have troll fans cuz they do. I'm stating the hypocrisy from some android fans that call iOS fans trolls for doing exactly what the android fans r doing. Pot shouldn't call the kettle black ya know. And the last thing u wanna do is start a flame war, but the truth is the truth. Both camps need to chill bro...both.

Its so predictable these days, the next iPhone will have the exact same design as the iPhone 5 and the exact same ui again again as the original first iPhone albeit this time with a 13 mp camera and a slightly faster processor slapped with a PR label like "lightning processor " by apple to convince Ifans its new. Customers who i have interacted with daily already have been saying it and even the general public fully expect only an 's' effort from apple again this year

You seriously have issues, and you're even more ignorant for backing a jewbag company. Btw, what's it like to know your precious Apple is going down the tubes? Never too late to join us Fandroids. Android4Lyf :D

Nice spelling, chaoticrazor. Colouring? You mean 'coloring.' And your = ownership/you're = you are. You wanna call someone an idiot when your literacy sucks? No matter what anyone says, intellect reflects upon grammar/spelling skills. You, sir, are a tool.

haha so you class entire intellect on literacy. hmm well guess when those mechanics start work on replacing an exhaust they better have excellent grammar..... and i can make your whole presence on this site meanigless by pulling this from your sad excuse for a comment ''you're even more ignorant for backing a jewbag company. Btw, what's it like to know your precious Apple is going down the tubes? Never too late to join us Fandroids. Android4Lyf :D'' your tragic kid

lmao! "You're tragic, kid." Are you a pedophile?...calling me a kid, and all. You don't even know who I am. I guess you have lil kids on the brain? I'm kinda skurd, now :-\ And I never said 'entire' intellect. I think you're just asshurt, and getting mad, because I hurt your wee little feelings about your stupidity. I know, I know...not everyone can be $m@Rt. Btw, you must have some sorta complex about yourself (example: low self-esteem) if you brag about making my "whole presesence on this site meanigless" on a small forum. Oooooh you're sucha big man. My hero, my savior, my idol. You can pick one of those :D Now I will await your next ignorant comment. Fuel my fire >:)

Theres no need for racist comments. Is it that serious?

I don't see any 'racist' comments. There are not any negative comments about anyone's race/nationality.

These rumors are pointless this far in advance. It just causes unnecessary hype for those who are under-informed who take the rumors as truth than the actual phone disappoints everyone.

These rumors are possibly aimed at upsetting S4 and Note8 cart.
