iPhone 4S coming soon: update with A5 chipset

For the last few days there has been rumors flying around about a possible iPhone 4S being announced at the WWDC starting on Monday 6th June, and now Macotakara is rumoring that iPhone 4S will be released in June/August featuring the new dual core A5 chipset and improved camera.

Apple A5 chip in iPhone 4S

June has traditionally been the month for new iPhone releases, but this year it has long been rumored that Apple would postpone a launch of the iPhone 5 until later in the year, largely down to the earlier release of Verizon iPhone. Now however there is talk about an upgraded iPhone 4S being released, perhaps on selected networks only, featuring the A5 chipset, built-in SIM, and an upgraded 8-megapixel camera.

According to the rumors the form factor will stay the same, although improvements will be made to the antenna issue that caused some stir around the launch of the original iPhone 4. Adding an upgraded version is not unlike what Apple did with the previous model, and could be a way for Apple to ensure they get a dual-core version into the market this year. It could also be part of Apple’s plan for the release of iOS 5 which is rumored not to support older models of the iPhone, including the iPhone 3GS.

As for the next generation iPhone 5 the latest rumors indicate that we will have to wait until next year. Question is, will this upgrade be enough for a lot of people to upgrade from their current model? Would you upgrade to the iPhone 4S? Let us know by leaving a comment below.

As always we stress that these are rumors only at the moment. We will be back with the latest on a possible iPhone 4S.
