iPhone 5S design unchanged, will have gravity-defying properties
Apparently, Apple has developed some new kind of technology that allows the iPhone to hover above flat surfaces. The feature appears to have evolved from this "airbag" concept that is thoroughly described in an Apple patent from 2010. As far as we can tell, the purpose of all this is to protect the iPhone's aluminum body from scratches by ensuring that it does not come in contact with the surface it is placed on. Additionally, it might be able to prevent physical damage in case the handset is dropped.
The iPhone 5S is expected to be officially announced in June of this year, followed by a cheaper iPhone model, the name of which hasn't yet leaked on the web.
