Internets go crazy for (probably fake) pics of the iPhone 5S

The Apple iPhone 5 has only been out for a few months now, but that isn't stopping the Internets from going crazy over (probably fake) pics of the iPhone 5S. The pictures were supposedly taken of a device straight off the factory line, and they may well have been, but that doesn't make us any more likely to believe the images are of the iPhone 5S...

"face it android users on here love to moan and slate others" Now what's that? Your opinion which is "generalising" and not a "fact" because I am also a Android user who would never ever go to WINDOWS or Apple. But I am not what you are trying to paint every android user as. Wonder why you are allowed so much leeway here by PA. Are you by any chance alias of one of staff here? Let's see if MH sends me a warning for writin g this. Before me you should be warned honestly. You try to show you are a neutral techie but you are not. So grow up.

these posters who say that they are neutral are full of B.S. My wife has an ipad and iphone 4S (VZW) - she complains about the 4S messing up - especially on texting. I def know what I am talking about when it comes to older windows phones, tablets and Android and Apple, because they are everywhere in my house (unfortunately, we also have an AT&T wi-fi only 3GS and an ipod touch - but the kids love them and that is what counts for me). If you love tech...I mean reallllllly love tech, you just are not going t o love iproducts as much as something that can modded.

We all can stay neutral as long as we buy what we truly desire and move on without comparing it to a product used by someone else.

a 6month turn around for phones...why so apple can stick u with 4-5minor upgrades just important enough to make u wanna switch phones??? i mean really i think its bad enough were locked into 2yr contracts and most companies relase a newer model a year later so ur stuck with almost a paper weight for another year....i say just stick with the yearly updates

apple should in introduce a fresh new OS its gettting boring many people leave for andriod 7 family members of mine left and went over to andriod they got bored of it. look how the shipping time went down to 4 days and also apple doesnt have limt of how many iphone you buy because no one in the us is buying it anymore people got bored of it. its the same old shit every year people got bored. whats good about andriod and windows is every year or two they have fresh os and apple doesnt thats why apple will lose many people in the coming years

apple 5S with 4.5" screen... that will make apple iPhone comparable to huge android and now WP devices! really hoping (but with zero chance of bein greal) that iOS 7 will have a major revamp!! if apple wants to wow people and want to make itself relevant in the years to come! live widgets and a real homescreen would be nice...well atleast it has 3 homescreen + dock! and swipe up along with the dock will show the apps!

that would be cool to see an iphone closer to 5 inches - I wonder if their users would still complain about size then?

actually for me, 3.5" to 4.5" is normal... bigger than that is huge while smaller than that is tiny! i cant even text properly on my 4.3" phone...but still a good size...coz you can actually hold it and it will wont look rediculous is you're making a call! i dont think a lot of people complains about the current size of the iPhone! but it would be nice that the next iPhone (5S or 6 whatever) and the next iOS version to have a major revamp... yes, i believe steve jobs or people from apple that iOS isnt broken, and they say you dont need to fix what is isnt broken... but its really getting boring! while on android, yes it is very malicous (due to apps) but have some new or great improvements everytime there's a new version! so all i want for apple is to make some major revamp on iOS

I love how at the end of this article they basically said, "Who gives a damn!" I feels ya, if you're gonna tell me about the 5S show me the operating system because that is the only thing that is going to change. Some features...

It'd be nice to see the iPhone become more like android software-wise, and android to become more like iPhone hardware-wise. It would be perfect nirvana! Imagine something like the Galaxy Note 2 or the Galaxy S3 with the iPhone's design! That's not likely to happen though, at least not while Apple is putting every company in court for "copying." I was an apple fanboy... until i decided to give android a try!
