If this turns out to be the case, for the first time, Apple will be releasing two generations of 9.7-inch iPads in a 12 month period. The same might be the case for the iPhone according to reports.

Analyst Peter Misk of Jefferies & Co. suggested that Apple will deviate from their annual release cycle and  launch the next iPhone already in June 2013.

According to Misk report to investors:

  • The new iPhone will be called iPhone 5S and feature a “Super HD” display
  • Apple will integrate a NFC chip into the iPhone
  • And improved battery which should increase the up-time and overall battery life
