Regarding the unveiling of iPhone 5S and iPad 5, the date of June 29th was first reported by Gizmorati, who claims to have an inside source, and the blog also mentions that Apple will launch the iPhone 5S and iPad 5 during a special event called ‘Original Passion, New Ideas’, with the purpose to “reconquer the public and reassure the investors”, after the things started to go wrong (Maps app,  lower sales, stock value dropping etc).

After the June 29th date was mentioned, many other rumors started to support it:

-CNET claims the iPhone 5S should start shipping by the end of June, according to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster.

-Digitimes reported that “Apple’s supply chain will start shipping the components for the iPhone 5S at the end of May, so the next generation smartphone will likely have a chance of showing up in the third quarter.”

-MacRumors cites KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Ku, who predicted a late June release.

Specifications:

It is believed that iPhone 5S will feature a Super HD display, higher-end processor, a 12-megapixels camera, a fingerprint sensor, near-field communications support (NFC) and maybe wireless charging.

Regarding the iPad 5, a 128GB version seems to be possible, as we know that Apple now has that capacity, thanks to the recent launch of a 128GB iPad 4. Also it could feature a new A6X processor system-on-a-chip, lightning connector and better LTE support.

Price:

The price of iPhone 5S is expected to be around $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for 64GB. All with a new contract.
