Apple is expected to release two new smartphones, the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C, tomorrow at a special event and it is no surprise to see that Taiwanese manufacturers have already started to produce accessories for what promises to be the biggest launch of the year for Apple. We stopped by Esorun in the Taiwan pavilion at IFA. It had a classic battery casing for the iPhone 5C as well as a wireless Qi charging case for the iPhone 5/5S and 5C known as the Blade 5.
After a rather tepid iPhone 5 launch, there are high hopes that Apple will come up with an array of models that will allow the company to cover all bases rather than rely on a single model. Expected innovations include an integrated fingerprint scanning technology, a larger array of colours and a faster processor.
Whether or not, it will allow the iPhone to keep pace with the rest of the Android smartphones remains to be seen. It is likely that Apple will focus even more on enhancing the software side of things, perhaps with totally new features thrown in to prepare it for the onslaught of Android Kit Kat.
The company also demoed a 3-in-1 mobile device called the KR800 which combines a key ring charger, keychain USB cable and USB flash drive. It has a 1,000mAh capacity, weighs a mere 38g and has a capacity of up to 64GB. For the latest updates about Apple’s iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C on our dedicated live coverage page here.
