New reports point to Apple starting to build new iPhones for a fall release. Samsung just unveiled the cheaper Galaxy S4 mini, so we adopt their naming for the low-cost iPhone: iPhone 5S mini.
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.

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.
