iPhone 5S Production To Begin In December Coming In First Half Of 2013 - Apple has been currently making some strange decisions which, as many techies say, “would not have happened under the rule of Steve Jobs”. Actually, the only person who knows what would have happened under Steve’s rule would be Steve himself but there is no doubt that Apple has been making some strange decisions. First there was the release of the fourth-gen iPad before despite the fact that the third-generation iPad was barely 8 months old, and then there was the firing of Scott Forstall. And now, we are hearing news about the possible release of an iPhone 5S in the first half of 2013.
iPhone 5S Production To Begin In December Coming In First Half Of 2013
Chinese newspaper Commercial Times is claiming that Apple’s manufacturing partners are going to start trial-production of the next-iteration of iPhone, the iPhone 5S, in December. The iPhone 5 is barely a couple of months old currently and it seems quite weird that Apple’s manufacturing partners will start production next month. Commercial Times reports that initial volumes will be 50,000 to 100,000 while the volume production will begin in the first quarter of 2013.
The Chinese newspaper is not sure about the possible release date of the 7th-Generation iPhone but it does hint towards a first half of 2013 release date.
Can Apple keep its hold on the smartphone market by accelerating the launch schedule or not?
