People who are looking to buy an iPhone may want to hold off for a bit, as Gizmodo said now is likely the worst time to buy a new Apple smartphone. The company will announce a new addition to the iPhone family come September, which will instantly make any currently “new” device worth far less money. For those willing to wait a little while longer or perhaps for the next device to be released, iResQ offers iPhone repair that will have the old device back in your hands as good as new.
“The iPhone that's coming in early September will be pretty much like the iPhone 5, but with a few key upgrades,” the blog said. “We're talking about a faster processor, a better battery and maybe a dual LED flash for the camera. We've also seen hints that iPhone 5S will have a fingerprint scanner in the home button so that you'll never have to type in your PIN again. And if you like standing out, it looks like the 5S will come in gold (and maybe graphite?) in addition to traditional black and white.”
Additionally, a new chip in the upcoming device may be 31 percent faster than that in the current latest gadget. Even for those who don't care about the new device and want a new iPhone no matter what, waiting will pay off, as the price of every iPhone on the market will drop after September.
MacRumors said those interested in what the price of the newest device will be should look to a report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who said the new phone will be worth somewhere between $450 and $550. It may be less money for those who sign a two-year deal with a phone carrier. Those who are happy with their current device can look to iPhone repair to help get it back to working order again.
