    Is there a penalty for returning the iPhone 5 if your under the 30 day return window? I just bought a new one a week ago and now news is coming that the 5S will be announced on the 10th. I would rather just return the 5 and get the 5S when it comes out next month, also I used my upgrade for it. How does that work? How long would it take to get my upgrade back.
    Not knowing what service your on I can only speak about Sprint where you have 30 days to switch to a different phone not a refund I believe and your not getting your upgrade back

    You can return the iPhone 5 that you got back to Apple.. There won't be a penalty for returning it. Once the return is processed, Verizon will reverse your upgrade back to the date that it was before and you'll be able to get the 5S.

    Where did you buy it? If from Verizon, their return window is 14 days... not 30. And the new iPhone is being announced Sept 10...availability might be October...
    I bought it at apple. I called them an they said the return policy was 30 days.

    Correct. Apple offers a 30 day return period.

    This depends on what your definition of amazing is. For you and I that already have an iPhone 5 the 5S might not be amazing. to those coming from a iPhone 3 or 3GS, the iPhone 5s might be totally amazing to them.

    Speak with Verizon. When I worked at Best Buy our return policy was 30 days but Verizon would only reverse the upgrade within 15.

    Oh I understand. If the 5S has a fingerprint scanner it will be time to upgrade.

    You would buy just for finger print scanner?

    I personally think a finger print scanner is useless for me. I let my family use my phone when the need it, so unless it can keep track of multiple people I'm not integrated in the feature at all. I thought it was crappy when it came out with the Motorola artix as well.

    The only thing I personally want from a new iPhone is a little bigger screen maybe 4.5-4.7 with a small enough bezel than I would be good.

    Since it likely won't happen on the 5s I am satisfied with my iPhone 5.

    I've been wondering how exactly this unveiling would go if the 5S is indeed a minor upgrade as many expect. I'm thinking that much of the emphasis will be swayed away from the fact that the 5S is an incremental upgrade and the focus will be pushed towards the lower-end model. This of course is assuming that both phones exist and will be unveiled at the same event. The other focus I imagine would be on the fingerprint scanner if it exists as well.

    A new rumor is that the camera will remain 8mp while the sensor is improved. I would welcome this immensely as it would keep picture size down to allow for less storage space while continuing to improve quality. Of course those who crave numbers and misunderstand megapixels will scoff at this.

    Finally, I am not sure how I feel about a fingerprint scanner. My hope is that it can be disabled. There are many times where I have wanted someone to call someone on my phone for me, answer it, etc. I can see the fingerprint scanner being a pain in my rear (for me personally).

    I've owned every iPhone since the 3G and bought every iPhone on launch day since the 3GS. I do have a upgrade available now but I am determined not to buy the 5S this year and keep my 5. I hope to keep my word on that.
    I'm with you Garz. I just upgraded to the 5 and honestly I love it. Should I have waited? Probably but this phone has been great and I've only owned it a week. Once iOS 7 is released I don't really see a reason unless the next iPhone can predict the future or make me breakfast. I say these things now but I'm sure I will secretly want the latest and greatest.

    I agree with you about the fingerprint scanner. It was only useful on my old Motorola Atrix when it worked, which wasn't that often. I would rather have a slightly larger screen if anything, instead of a FP scanner.

    I don't see Apple adding a larger display on a S model.

    Yes I would like a screen as big as my Nexus 4 but I know that won't happen. I see massive potential with a fingerprint scanner so instead of having to type my passcode in every time and risk people knowing, having my finger instead would be far better for me.

    I don't either, Chetan. I think this will be more foreseeable with the iPhone 6.

    Same here, love the 5 and grabbed it in June , have no big need to trade up yet. Ios7 update will be great for now- either way though this phone is great.

    I'm pretty excited about this 5S announcement, and I was curious. Anyone know when Apple finalizes the hardware in the iPhone cycle?

    I understand the hesitation towards the FP scanner due to your previous experience, but I would like to point out that this is Apple that may be releasing this feature in their iPhone... not Motorola w Android 2.2 (I believe that was the version at that time). Just saying

    i believe iphone 5C will be great to lure those people to join in the apple ecosystem who choose an android because its cheap. if people purchasing cheaper apple products like the ecosystem then they are more likely to buy expensive and premium devices that apple makes. even my apple love started when i bought my ipod classic.
    Also, the cheaper iphone if it sells at $350-450 will boost the profit margins if apple discontinues the iphone 5 and earlier iphones as soon as the 5S lands.
