The Cupertino-based giant is yet to reveal the release date of forthcoming iPhone 5S and 5C. AllThingsD had already published that Apple could announce new devices on September 10. Now the suspense is around the retail availability of both iPhone 5S and 5C.
According to Techmaniacs.gr estimates, the new lineup should be available on October 25. Last year, the same correctly predicted the release date of iPhone 5.
Take this information as a grain of salt. In the past also, Apple always made sure that the devices delivered to consumers within a month. But this around, the gap between the release and retail availability date would surely make consumers angry.
Moreover, industry insiders claim that Apple is simultaneously working on to block dates for another big event. It could be the arrival of new Macs or speculated updated iPad range.
Recently, in a research note issued to investors, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has come to be point that the low-cost iPhone 5C may not include Siri. Not only that, Apple could axe iPhone 4S to fit iPhone 5C somewhere between iPhone 5S and iPhone 5.
He also pointed at the rumored specifications of so-called iPhone 5C: a 4-inch display and plastic body, among others. Munster also predicted that Apple's rumored iwatch will be launched mid-2014, while Tim Cook is working hard to bring Apple T.V set later this year.
Back in March, Munster went on saying that Apple was ready to unveil iPhone 5S in June frame. He clearly told his investors that Apple will likely to sell millions of iPhone 5S this year.
Another high-profile Apple analyst KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known for predicting Apple device a little earlier than others , believe that iPod maker will release iPhone 5S in either October or November.
"We believe iPhone 5S will experience production difficulties among numerous components as well as assembly, as seen with iPhone 5 last year. The model will thus be available only in limited amounts following launch. We expect undersupply to improve in October or November."
