As owners of the first LTE-A network in the world, SK Telecom have approached Apple with the intention of having LTE-A support in an Apple iPhone device. Since the next iPhone to come out from Apple would be the iPhone 5S it would make it the next smartphone to have LTE-A support (and offer SK Telecom another LTE-A device for those LTE-A users who don't like the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A).

Apple's upcoming smartphone, the Apple iPhone 5S and the rumoured affordable iPhone Light have recently got some leaked images, this time in the form of to-scale drawings. What sets them apart is that they seem genuine enough for case makers to start manufacturing cases for them. The drawings reveal much as the more affordable iPhone Light retains the same shape with a 4-inch display but is slightly thicker due to the possibly plastic casing. The home button remains the same with a front facing camera.

Apple has long been a supporter of releasing only one product in a one-size-fits-all sort of approach with their devices and smartphones. The Apple iPhone is no different. Samsung on the other hand like to flood the market with a smartphone for every use, niche or price point, which is why some sources believe that Apple may be looking to do the same soon.

Based on a rumour from China, possibly from component suppliers, Apple may be doubling the amount of pixels in the screen for the next iPhone. This would result in the side bezels becoming thinner, following the same look and feel as the iPad mini. Currently, the iPhone 5 has a Retina display with 730000 pixels anda pixel density of 326ppi. Doubling the number of pixels would mean about 1500000 pixels for a pixel density of 460ppi.

While it still hasn't come out yet, the Apple iPhone 5S continues to gain more and more rumours. While hardware rumours such as an improved 2MP front-facing camera seem very unlikely (the S versions of Apple's iPhone usually involve software upgrades more than hardware upgrades) some rumours still fit. This includes a rumour from iOSDoc that mentions the next iPhone will come out with iOS 7 and the ability to record full HD Videos. It also mentions the fact that it may have a dual-shot feature allowing you to take a shot or a video using both cameras at the same time.

Apple's next iPhone iteration, the Apple iPhone 5S looks to be breaking with tradition as rather than a software update it may also include a hardware update as well. Rumours have recently surfaced that the Apple iPhone 5S may feature a 12MP camera, which is 4MP higher than the current 8MP camera sensor in the Apple iPhone 5. This rumour comes courtesy of a source from Wonderful Saigon Electrics, the component maket who deals with Apple's camera modules. Other features of the updated 12MP camera sensor include better low-light shooting and HDR support.

oncept renders often reveal new possible models, and these new concept images of the Apple iPhone may just reveal two brand new models, mainly the rumoured cheap Apple iPhone and the new Apple iPhone 5S. In a side by side comparison with the Apple iPhone, the red coloured version looks like it was made with plastic marking it as the possible cheaper Apple iPhone.

A few days back we talked about possible features of the Apple iPhone 5S (and other future Apple iPhones). One of the main rumours that we brought up involved a curved wraparound display. At the time of writing, the pictures available were figures used within the patent filing, however, recently photos of a possible Apple iPhone 5S prototype with almost exactly the same curved looking screen have surfaced.

Rumours about new phones constantly crop up and Apple's iPhone 5S is no different. For the first rumour about Apple's iPhone 5S unveiling date, while a few sources have said that it could be in August 2013, some are saying that it could go on sale one month earlier in July. This rumour is based on a prediction by an Apple tech fanzine. Other launch dates include June which would allow it better competition with the Samsung Galaxy S4. If the Apple iPhone 5S were to be launched on 20 June 2013 it would also nearly coincide with the anniversary of the original Apple iPhone's launch (29 June 2007).
