    Default 5S rumor found on google +

    Apple Reportedly Delays the Launch of Next Generation Lineup to Q3

    Several devices from Apple’s next-generation lineup will reportedly launch later than most industry watchers expect due to various delays with their development. Plugged-in analyst Ming-chi Kuo of KGI Securities on Thursday circulated a research note claiming Apple’s iPhone 5s will not launch as soon as most sell-side analysts believe, and neither will its upcoming entry-level iPhone or the second-generation iPad mini.

    Ming-chi points to a number of different reasons for the various delays. For the iPhone 5s, the analyst said Apple is having difficulties integrating a new component — a fingerprint sensor — into the device.

    “Apple has to work out how to prevent interference from the black and white coating material under the cover glass,” Ming-chi wrote in the note, which was picked up by AppleInsider. “Apple is the first to attempt this function and technology, and time is needed to find the right coating material, which will likely affect iPhone 5s shipments.”

    Ming-chi also accurately forecast Apple’s entire fall product lineup, including unexpected products like a redesigned iPod nano and tweaked fourth-generation iPad with faster processor and Lightning connector. The analyst also revealed months before the new, thinner iMacs were announced that the redesigned all-in-one desktops would be in short supply. Availability of the iMacs proved to be so constrained that Apple experienced supply issues well into 2013.

    Thanks for the info kataran,

    I'm not upgrading till 4th qt or 1st qt 2014 so this won't affect me but I'm sure many will be disappointed with the 5S being moved back.
    My son & daughter-in-law were hoping for a summer date to upgrade from their iPhone 4. I guess I'll be the 5s for them.

    Good Luck

    We already know it's around August or later. iOS 7 will take 2 to 3 months to go through beta. That's even with a May event to announce it. If not announced til June, expect sep/oct. There's no way of getting around this.
