Experts: alleged 'iPhone 5S' photos are likely to be fakes
A set of photos that appeared on a Chinese website and were subsequently claimed to be the "iPhone 5S" in a number of tech outlets are almost certainly hoaxes, say experts from iFixIt.com and elsewhere. Much more likely is the idea that the images come from a China-based "iClone" producer, though there are still some who think they could be the long-rumored "cheaper iPhone" using inferior parts and assembly techniques to compete with lower-grade smartphones.
