June Debut For Next iPhone?
Perhaps only second to branding products with a lower-case “i,” there’s nothing more “i”-conic at Apple than the company’s extreme secrecy about new product launch information, especially when it comes to the latest iPhone. Because nature abhors a vacuum, the tech community has long responded to the secrecy with one of the most developed, and reasonably accurate, rumor mills.
With Apple’s annual programmer conference just six weeks away, the rumor mill is cranking up to full speed regarding the next iPhone, likely to be dubbed the iPhone 5S. The opening session at the programmer conference has traditionally hosted major product announcements.
While the “S” model introductions have focused more on software and services (think Siri), rather than hardware updates, there is high confidence that the 5S will debut fingerprint-scanning technology to improve security from unauthorized access when a phone is lost or stolen. With Apple’s 2012 purchase of a biometric security company and early marketing messages focused on “identity,” this rumor doesn’t seem to be much of a stretch.

There was a single exception of one tip that applies to a task that might not be common for the everyday tech user.
