iPhone 5S could launch early as parts arrive in factories

Apple's next iPhone could be in your hands sooner than you think, if the latest rumours are to be believed

Components for the iPhone 5S (or iPhone 6) have begun arriving at the doors of Chinese manufacturers according to the latest whisperings from the iRumour Mill.

Patently Apple's sources believe that production on the iPhone 5S could begin as early as July, which points to an earlier-than-September release date, possibly to quash the Android momentum created by the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4.

Whether or not the cheaper plastic iPhone also fits into this equation remains unclear, but with a fresh-faced Sir Jony Ive-designed iOS 7 expected to make an appearance at WWDC 2013, we're looking forward to what the iPhone 5S has in store for us, whatever its eventual release date.
