Apple is reportedly working on two new iPhone models that will debut later this year — an iPhone 5S with an integrated fingerprint scanner and a cheaper iPhone model that will be available with several color options that are new to the iPhone line. The news comes from Reuters and it mirrors a number of earlier reports. “For this year, Apple is expected to launch two new models, widely referred to as the iPhone 5S, with new fingerprint technology, and a cheaper version in plastic casing, supply chain sources have said,” Reuters’ Clare Jim, Reiji Murai and Poornima Gupta wrote. “Apple plans to dress up the cheaper phone in a range of 5-6 colors to differentiate it from the more expensive model that has traditionally come only in black and white.” The report claims Apple may be targeting a $99 retail price for the new handset, and it also claims the launch of the cheaper iPhone may be delayed until next year.
