No major iPhone redesign this year

Written by Peter Scott

Just a few new colours

The new iPhone is coming in a couple of months, but it might not be as “new” as consumers would like it to be.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the iPhone 5S won’t be much different than the current model. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, as Apple did the exact same thing with the 3GS and the 4S. However, the 5S should get a couple of new colours, green and gold to be exact.

However, the rumoured low-cost iPhone should be available in a bunch of colours, including green, blue, yellow-orange and ink. It will feature a plastic shell and should end up significantly cheaper than the 5S.

This means that Apple will probably launch one all-new iPhone every year. The all new high end model should appear 2014, while the cheap one should tip up this year. We see quite a bit of potential for cannibalization if this is the case, and it probably is.

Apple is also expected to show off a massive redesign of iOS at the World Wide Developer Conference, which starts today. It seems that the new look will be a lot cleaner, flatter and it will drop the skeumorphic design, which has been a trademark of iOS for the past six years.
