Readwrite.com reports that last week, rumors surfaced saying the iPhone 5S will have dual LED flash for photos. The different flashes will be white and an off-yellow, designed for taking "natural" looking pictures indoors. 

The new Apple iPhone will also have four different camera modes through iOS 7, the new operating system. There will be a "square" mode to take Instagram-like photos, a video mode, a panorama mode and the normal point-and-shoot mode, Readwrite.com reports. Users will be able to toggle between the modes on the camera with a side flick of the app.

The website reports that the iPhone 5S will likely have a camera of at least 8 megapixels, and hopefully more.  Motorola's new Moto X smartphone has a 10MP camera while the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a 13MP camera. 

Speaking of the iOS 7, the new design of the operating system will feature a "flat design" that is quite distinct from what consumers are used to seeing on today's iPhones and iPads, Readwrite.com reports. 

Flat designs depart from the the real-life characteristics of apps, and instead look more futuristic and cartoon-like. For example, the bookshelves in the Newsstand app are replaced with a series of blue rows. The Notes app no longer features a yellow legal pad, but now is a simple white on black design, Readwrite notes.

Curious iPhone users can test out the iOS 7, which is available for download through the beta version.
