iPhone 5S Release Date June 20, On Sale In July

The iPhone 5S release date is June 20 of 2013 according to some reports. The Apple iPhone 5S is also expected to be on sale by July.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Apple iPhone 5 release date was originally thought to be June 29, a date would mark the sixth anniversary since the release of the original iPhone. Apple is calling the iPhone 5S event “Original Passion, New Ideas.”

This name probably makes reference to the fact that former Apple CEO Steve Jobs will not have any input for the next generation of Apple products. This makes Apple fans watch the advent of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S very closely.

Very few rumors regarding the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 have surfaced at this time. The company is expected to add a faster processor, improved retina display, and potentially a low-cost version of its popular iPhone line.

Mac-oriented web site MacFan suggests that the Apple iPhone 5S release date is actually set for an Apple event on June 20. They also claim Apple will launch the much-rumored low-cost iPhone in August and target it as a pre-paid device for developing markets such as China and India.

A June 20 event makes sense because it would immediately follow Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, which has been used to announce the iPhone 4, 3GS, and 3. Announcing the iPhone 5S sooner, rather than later, would also allow Apple to steal some of the thunder from the Samsung Galaxy S4. The new variant of the iPhone 5 could also compete with Samsung’s plans for a Galaxy S4 mini.

What do you think of Apple’s alleged plans to announce the iPhone 5S on June 20?
