Expectations run high for the release of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 expected later this year.
No iPhone has generate more pre-release hype then the Iphone 5, except maybe the upcoming iPhone 5S and 6, expected to be released in 2013 according to iLoung’s Jeremy Horwitz.
According to Horwitz the iPhone 5S is expected to be about the same size as the iPhone 5, but boasts an improved rear flash. More exciting improvements are expected for the iPhone 6, including a possible a 4.7 inch screen in an effort to compete with larger screen sizes available on android devices.
While the exact model details and the date of the release are all speculation at this point, one thing is certain, the hype is just what Apple needs. According to International Business Times, Apple stock (NASDAQ: AAPL) soared leading up to the release of the iPhone 5 last year, only to lag after the release despite excellent sales numbers.
In other words, out of this world sales are expected, it’s the hype that keeps Apples stock prices rising. But if that’s the case then we could expect strong performance with two highly anticipated releases on the horizon. Yet despite record sales AAPL stock has been creeping slowly downward for the past six months.
