iPhone 5S camera teased by black bar hardware

In a set of photos from what appears to be a factory floor the iPhone 5S has been teased with two iterations: one a single-LED flash, another with a dual-LED flash. This is indicated by a single circle hole or a bit more of an oval, here showing the next-generation iPhone to be working with the same configuration we've seen in dummy models over the past two days. This leak comes from C Tech, a leakster of some note with sources in Vietnam and throughout China.

iPhone 5S fingerprint scanner may be this year’s show-stopping feature

iPhone 5S fingerprint scanner may be this year’s show-stopping feature

Where with the iPhone 4S came Apple's re-application of the personal assistant software Siri, it's been re-tipped this week that the iPhone 5S will be coming with a fingerprint scanner. This word comes from future-telling analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities, a fellow known for his prophesy-telling tips on soon-to-exist Apple products. This suggestion of a fingerprint scanner up front of the iPhone 5S lines up well with Apple's acquisition of Authentec just over a year ago.

iPhone 5S unveiling tipped for September 10th: here’s what to expect

iPhone 5S unveiling tipped for September 10th: here’s what to expect

This weekend it would appear that we're so very close to the launch of the next iPhone that we're being treated to not only up-close photos of the devices themselves, but a possible reveal date as well. According to a source speaking with AllThingsD, a special event held by Apple on the 10th of September will play host to their next iPhone. While their one-line suggestion does only aim at one model, this event could very well still hold a surprise in a budget-minded second tier.

iPhone 5S hardware dummy appears aside iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C

All the way across the pond in Vietnam a collection of photos of both of the two tipped imminent iPhone releases have appeared, both the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C in all their (dummy model) glory. These images appear through Tinh te, a publication notorious for such case-maker model leaks, and depict the iPhone collection for Apple as it'll likely be lined up later this year. Take heed: the iPhone 5 is wearing a case of its own, but you'll be able to tell the basics from this set nonetheless.

iPhone 5S Champagne parts arrive upstream

This afternoon a new set of parts - and therefor clues - have arrived in the upstream iPhone parts market indicating a new color combination for the next-generation iPhone 5S. This device will be delivered with a body and set of specifications very similar to the iPhone 5, coming some time this year with what's likely to be a next-generation processor and camera setup. Hardware appearing today suggests that a new option for coloring will be appearing as well, right in-between white and black with a rather unforeseen shade of Champagne.

iPhone 5S display appears with “5G” name indicating a lack of change

iPhone 5S display appears with “5G” name indicating a lack of change

It may be time for Apple to drop the name-change conventions entirely (once again) as an LCD display component has appeared internationally with the name "iPhone 5G" attached. While it's possible that this set of leaked images from USwitch could indicate the next iPhone model will grab a new "G" when released to the public, it's far more likely that the G stands for "generation". This would indicate that the next refresh of the iPhone will either stick with the name iPhone 5 or will drop the numbers entirely, like the iPad.

This week we're bound to see another massive collection of Apple device leaks, not least of all because we're coming up on a period where it's likely Apple will hold an event to release a new smartphone, smartphones, or tablet. Or even a couple of tablets if the rumor mill turns out to ring true. What we're seeing today is what's being called the 5th generation iPad as well as the iPhone 5C.

Nokia Lumia 925 battles iPhone 5 camera in latest comparison ad

Nokia has thrown down the gauntlet to the iPhone 5, with a new commercial that pits Apple's smartphone against the Lumia 925's camera and - so the plucky Finns claim - finds Cupertino's finest left wanting. The advert, promising "Better Photos Every Day", shows side-by-side comparisons taken on the iPhone 5 and the Lumia 925, aiming to highlight the Windows Phone's low-light performance and more accurate colors.
