Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) came and went with nary a new iPhone announcement, but that doesn't mean the Cupertino outfit isn't readying the launch of another generation of smartphones. Potentially serving as further evidence that Apple's close to announcing a new model, a French website posted what it claims are photos of iPhone 5S batteries.
