However, new reports from BGR, suggest that the iPhone 5S might come in a wider array of hues than any of its predecessors.
One sneakily snagged SIM card tray for the next iPhone is apparently endowed with a dull gold colour, which might mean that Apple is working on a slightly gaudier edition of its next handset.
It is also being rumoured that the iPhone 5S will feature a built in fingerprint scanner, making it much more secure than most other smartphones and allowing only legitimate users the opportunity to access its features and private data.
The finger print scanner rumour has surfaced in the past, most recently as part of a speech given by PayPal executive, Michael Barrett. As well as unlocking the phone, the scanner could be used to validate transactions carried out through the iPhone, which would make mobile shopping sprees all the more secure.
Hopefully, we will be getting official information on the next iPhone from Apple in the next few months, as it could still be on for a summer launch.
