their release date may be coming in August. iPhone 5S, iPad Mini 2 rumors suggest that cheaper versions of the two are being made by Pegatron

The Apple Worldwide Developer Conference is over; still we have no clue about the projected next-gen iPhone and iPads. The brand new software for the next line of iDevices the iOS 7 has already been showcased at the event. When the new iDevices are going for official release? Well, as rumors say, the new iPhone and iPads may come sometime sooner; but, what about the much-talked-about cheaper iPhone and iPad?

According to a recent report on DigiTimes, the whole things are to take place in a different way. The next generation full-size iPhone and iPad won’t be coming up this year. Instead, Apple may prefer to roll out their low-price variants in August or September 2013. Thus, the mainstream iPhone and iPad upgrades would make their way to stores early 2014.

Referring to “Taiwan-based supply chain makers,” DigiTimes has reported that the low-cost iPhone and iPad Mini are to be built by Pegatron. It is likely that the cheap iPhone would be built on plastic chassis in order to keep its price reduced, and its shipments may begin along with the iPad Mini second generation.

Meanwhile, the Taiwan tech blog reports that new editions of Apple’s mainstream iPhone and iPad are to appear in stores early 2014. These devices are to be made by Foxconn Electronics, Apple’s long-time partner in hardware making. Pegatron is a new OEM that Apple struck a deal with to produce a line of its new devices including iPhone and iPad.

Whatever the reality be, the next line of iDevices is crazily awaited by tech analysts and fans. All are anxious to know if Apple would take in a new approach toward its handsets. Only Apple can sustain the unyielding competition in market with such a drastic move. Otherwise, new iDevices will fail in front of the overpowering Android, BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone gadgets.
