Tech Check: New iPhone rumors

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

The Internet has been buzzing lately with rumors of the new iPhone. There seems to be a lot of agreement among the online tech sites that the replacement for the iPhone 5 will not be revolutionary. In fact, the guess, which is really what it is at this point, is that the next iPhone will be an iPhone 5S.

Remember back in the iPhone 4. There was a lot of build up about the next iPhone being the iPhone 5, but instead consumers got the iPhone 4S. It basically was the same phone with a better camera and Siri.

Now, it seems that the planets have aligned correctly again to bring us to the iPhone versus the rumored iPhone 5S. Many Internet tech sites are reporting the rumors that the iPhone 5S could have a better camera. The iPhone 5 has an 8 megapixel camera. The next incarnation of the iPhone could have a 12 or even a 13 megapixel camera. That would make it competitive with the newly released Samsung GALAXY S4.

The only other good guess out there is that a new iPhone could have a faster processor.

From there the rumors are flying with such things as a cheaper version or that Apple could split the product line even further and offer the iPhone in different sizes. Many of the tech sites are shrugging their shoulders at these kinds of rumors.

Whatever the new iPhone looks like, does or even is named, many agree that they could be hitting store shelves as early as September or October of this year.
