Apple is rumored to bring two new iPhones this year. This never happened before. It sounds though very reasonable that Apple is introducing in 2013 a new lower cost iPhone along the high-end iPhone 5S to reach new markets. Earlier this year Apple fans hoped that a new iPhone would come before summer. Now everything definitely points towards September.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple has contracted Pegatron to be the primarily maker of the low-cost iPhone aka iPhone 5S mini (adopting a naming scheme from Samsung). Apple Insider has a report up that says that the supply chain is getting ready to produce parts for the iPhone 5S.
As reported earlier the new iPhone 5S might have an integrated fingerprint sensor and no physical home button. This would allow for a complete smooth glass surface with only a speaker hole. If true this design could be a major visual difference to the iPhone 5S mini. The iPhone 5S mini is also supposed to have a plastic case to lower cost.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
