The iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 will both feature displays with twice as many pixels as the iPhone 5 screen, according to reports.
Apple plans on making a change to the display found in the next generation iPhone that is rumored to be called the 5S, according to the Chinese site WeiPhone.com. The company will double the pixels found on the iPhone 5, giving the next-gen device 1.5 million.
The site also stated that it does not know how Apple plans to create this new screen. WeiPhone's sources say that the device will have a narrower screen frame and that the company will begin shipping this new iPhone in September.
However, this rumor should be taken with a grain of salt as Apple just made a change in its amount of pixels last year with the iPhone 5. This claim also conflicts with other rumors which have stated that Apple will use the same iPhone 5 display on the next-generation model.
There have also been several photos leaked of parts for the iPhone 5S during the past few weeks.
The new photos feature a fairly high-resolution and are the best pictures to be released of these components thus far. These same parts have been leaking to repair firms over the past several months. They do not reveal much information about the upcoming device, except for the fact that they feature small changes from the components found on the iPhone 5.
The pictures display the loud-speaker bracket, ear speaker bracket, vibrating motor assembly, Wi-Fi flex cable ribbon and SIM card tray. Both pictures were posted by the tech site BGR earlier this week.
Pictures of parts meant for the iPhone 5S began leaking in the beginning of this year. The most recent parts leak featured an antenna-related add-on piece for the smartphone's logic board.
The iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 are also now rumored to feature a sapphire-covered home button.
This new component will accommodate the fingerprint sensor that is also rumored to be included on the iPhone 5S, according to a report from Cult of Mac.
