As a result, the appeal of the upcoming iPhone won't necessarily be hardware, but rather software. Sure, Apple will upgrade the iPhone 5's internals and may include a better camera. And sure, there are rumors that Apple's next-gen iPhone will come with a fingerprint authorization sensor, but again, the bulk of the marketing behind the iPhone 5S will most likely be software related.
All that said, all eyes will be on iOS 7 at WWDC this summer, especially now that Scott Forstall is out and Jony Ive is leading the aesthetic aspect of Apple's iOS design.
Interestingly, it's being noted that iOS 7 development is slightly behind schedule and has forced Apple to pull engineers from its OS X development team to help work on iOS
