Apple could be tinkering with the next iteration of the iPhone over Christmas according to China's Commercial Times, who claims that Apple is set to start trial production of the iPhone 5S in December, suggesting that it could enter mass production in the first quarter of 2013.
If true, it could mean that the next iPhone will hit shelves earlier than expected, causing a potential annoyance for iPhone 5 owners who have only just picked up their shiny new iDevice.
As with most Apple rumours, we're taking this all with a pinch of salt, but stay tuned for more info, as and when we get it.
