Report: iPhone 5S Due in August

While the world talks about Apple's plans for its own brand TV and an iWatch, it's easy to forget that there are other Apple products on the horizon, too. This includes Apple's yearly update to the iPhone line. According to the latest rumors, the iPhone 5S will be arriving in August this year.

Despite the fact that the last iPhone was introduced in September (and the one before that in October of 2011), it seems Apple might be announcing the newest iteration of its smartphone a bit earlier in this time around.

iMore cites sources familiar with the plans that say Apple will introduce the iPhone 5S in August and that it will feature the same design as the iPhone 5. Of course, it wouldn't be a brand new iPhone if there wasn't something different about it. To that end, the new iPhone 5S will apparently boast an improved camera as well as a faster processor.

The iPhone 5 features Apple's own custom built A6 chipset with a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and PowerVR SGX 543MP3. The camera is a 8MP (3264x2448) affair with autofocus and LED flash. No word on the specs of the camera or processor in the rumored iPhone 5S but we'll keep you posted.

    So basically nothing changes? This iPhone has had the same damn interface, features etc for the past couple years. This is annoying as hell now and is the sole reason as to why i'm grabbing a Galaxy S4.

    So damn unimaginative.
