    Well it's no surprise they are working on the next one, obviously, but if for some unforsaken reason that they decide to release a new one in like March/April, that's just sad.

    first quarter of 2013? I'm sorry but that disgusting. What a rip off to the people who bought the iphone 5. If this is true apple should have some sort of trade in program or else a lot of people will be angry.

    then again it could just be a rumor.

    I just bought an iPhone 5 on Friday, and I have my doubts that Apple would do this same thing to the iPhone as they did to the iPad 3 people. More devices have the lightning connector now [which seems to me their biggest push] so there wouldn't be a need to update every mobile device line with the lightning connector.

    If they do announce/release the next iPhone before September of 2013, I will be disappointed [event isn't included in the disappointment, as long as the actual release is later].

    What do you mean it's implied? It's already there. The iPhone 5S will get some feature to make people think it's worthwhile getting no doubt, probably a gimmick like a fingerprint scanner or something.

    (If there is an iPhone 5S)

    Trial production in this case probably refers to the chassi of the phone which, going by previous models, means a slightly upgraded version of the previous model. My guess is that they will try to make a thicker anodized layer to solve the scratching problem. The phone itself is probably many months away still.
