New iPhone release date
The new iPhone release date includes another interesting tidbit of information: more than one model. Apparently, Apple may be preparing to release two models of the iPhone in August. One will be the iPhone 5S (an update to the iPhone 5 in the same vein as the iPhone 4S was to the iPhone 4). The other will be a less expensive iPhone model that is targeted to the Chinese market.

Foxconn is expected to manufacture the new iPhone, release date August 2013. The factory, found in Taiwan, manufactures about 40 percent of all consumer electronics worldwide.
The new iPhone 5S is expected to be a "world phone." This means that it will be compatible with frequencies for most LTE networks. This is good news for some, but bad for others: The less expensive version geared towards the China market will not be a "world phone" and will require different models for different LTE networks.
The new iPhone release date comes with other design specifications on the new iPhone model. The new phone may be slimmer and contain a better screen display. This would prove to be a feat, as the iPhone 5's retina display that contains 1136-by-640 pixel resolution has been highly lauded by the technology community.
The 4-inch widescreen multi-touch display is a high benchmark, but new iPhone release date rumors claim that Apple plans to raise the bar even higher. The new display, paired with a reported increase in camera and flash quality, could mean the new iPhone iteration is more media-friendly than ever before. The new phone may feature a polycarbonate body and have a 4.5-inch screen display.
The most exciting new iPhone release date revelation, however, is the groundbreaking concept of wireless charging. Last month, Apple filed a patent application for a Wireless Power Utilization, which is rumored to use near-field magnetic resonance (NFMR). The latest current technology has iPhone users having to put their handsets on a pad in order to charge.
Despite all the new iPhone release date details, the new iPhone may come at a more affordable price than it ever has before. The price point could be as low as $350, almost half of the current $650 price. A follow-up to this version, the iPhone 6, could be released as soon as next year. In terms of aesthetics, rumor has it that the possibility of adding colors to the iPhone aluminum may be on the table too.
All of this new iPhone release date information comes on the heels of another Apple breakthrough -- timepieces. Reports have recently brought to light the fact that Apple is planning to introduce an Apple iWatch as soon as this year. Bloomberg has suggested that the wrist-wear will contain a broad range of touch-screen features and smartphone-connected abilities.
iWatch features may include wireless synch with users' iPhone devices. The device may let users make and receive calls directly from the iWatch's display, and maps may be displayed. In 2013, you may be able to make a call and check a map on your watch! Message previews and calendar alerts on the iWatch are other potential features.
The new iPhone's display improvements and wireless charging capabilities, when combined with its lower price point, would give it a definitive edge over the current competition Samsung Galaxy. While the new Galaxy Note has seen a huge PR and marketing push as of late, nothing can compete like technological advancements can.
