Although the Apple iPhone 5 is only about six months old attentions have already turned to when the next mobile phone will be released by the company and it may not be a long wait.
If the firm sticks to its previous track-record of models then the device should be called the iPhone 5S.
Apple surprised users when it released the iPad 4 and iPad mini just months after the iPad 3, so it is possible that the iPhone 5S may arrive early, but it's more likely that the new device will land in the second half of this year.
The Cupertino firm has received criticism from competitors regarding the unchanging design of its handsets, so this iPhone will have to do something new to keep up.
Reports and history say that the iPhone 5S isn't going to be that different from its predecessor, but a better camera, slightly faster processor, wireless charging and near field communication are all rumoured.
Apple's next iPhone could arrive as early as June, followed by another iPhone before the year is out, although nothing has yet been confirmed by the company.
