iPhone 5 is not compatible with existing micro-SIM cards.

It’s an untouched area as technology experts don’t estimated which one will come first: iPhone 5S or iPhone 6. If we keep Apple’s standing as an innovative company in mind then we can assume that Wireless technology with support of current cellular services will be part of new gadget in more intelligent ways.
Intelligent Assistant Siri, Used to send to send messages, set reminders, and more in your own voice. As we all know that Siri was a company acquired by U.S. technology giant and now it’s the important part of Apple’s services for Smartphone users including one who use iPod and iPad etc.

Fingerprint sensor installation with HOME button is another strong feature rumored within the industry and broadly in digital landscape. People who know Apple’s practices and organizational values widely assume that iPhone manufacturer must use its last year acquisition of AuthenTec.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities expects Apple’s acquisition of AuthenTec to pay off this year with the so-called “iPhone 5S,” the company’s anticipated next-generation handset. He believes Apple will find a way to integrate the fingerprint sensor into the home button, allowing Apple to keep its “minimalist design.”

“Apple is expected to launch a new iPhone this year with a fingerprint sensor hidden beneath the home button — an intuitive design that could be difficult for competing Android and Windows Phone devices to copy.

One of the reports says that iPhone 6 could revive slide out keyboard concept. Proponent of the slide-out keyboard, however, always has a point: on-screen touch screens are notoriously inaccurate and frustrating, and with iOS (still) offering nothing along the lines of Android’s swipe feature. For sure, feeling of manual buttons while typing would be a welcome feature for some users

iOS and Camera iOS 6 compatible with iPhone 3S, iPhone4, iPhone 4S with last release of iPhone 5.

iPod, iPad Mini and iPad users can also use it like their gadget’s own operating system.

iOS 7, the latest iPhone operating system could also be a key factor for tremendous response for iPhone 6. According to reports, Many other new exciting applications are also in the plan of Apple’s new iPhone.

Up to 8 hours on 3G

Browsing time:

Up to 8 hours on LTE

Up to 8 hours on 3G

Up to 10 hours on Wi-Fi

Standby time:

Up to 225 hours

Battery life during talk time or at standby is the big question mark for almost all Smartphones ability as compare to old cellular gadgets of Nokia, Samsung, and Motorola etc. Another assumption about iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 is “new Smartphone will be more efficient than its predecessors.

Farhan Zafar, the Technology Editor of TheNewsTribe said that “Steve Jobs’ company will be the smart one to come up with solution of the problem as Samsung S4 is likely to have  wireless charging feature.”

Capacity and Price 16GB $199

32GB $299

64GB $399

Another big question is that “will next generation iPhone come with the same capacity as iPhone 5 (16 GB, 32 GB and 64GB )or it will offer more storage capacity?” Technology Gurus from around the globe including U.S.’ experts believe that “more storage” is a popular demand from smartphone users, because new feature and huge range of interest and need-based apps require extra space than the available one.
