Apple iPhone 5S rumours surface

By
Apple is planning to refresh its product line with the release of a new iPhone and iPad in the first half of 2013, according to a report.

China Times (via 9to5Mac) cites industry sources claiming that the Cupertino firm will release the iPhone 5S next year, along with a new tablet and "iTV" hardware.

The report did not elaborate on what iTV is, but it could either refer to Apple's long-rumoured smart television hardware, or an updated set-top box.

Apple has allegedly applied for certification to begin mass production on the iPhone 5S. The device is said to follow in the footsteps of the 4S and 3GS models, which offered improved hardware and performance than their standard versions.

The company only recently rolled out the Mini and fourth generation editions of its popular tablet, but rumours a refreshed version of the former model with a Retina display began to circulate almost immediately.

Apple is yet to officially confirm plans for new products in 2013.
