New iPhone 5 Concept Renderings

The iPhone 5, or the “New iPhone” which some people are calling it, will most likely come with a larger screen, thinner form factor and 4G LTE.  But in all reality, we have no idea what it will look like. Perhaps Apple will go towards a more iPod-esque design, reverting back to the natural curves of the 3GS, or they may go with a larger, boxy iPhone 4 style.  ADR has come up with their latest vision of how the iPhone 5 will look like, and they are also speculating on some of its features.

Apple Blocks Siri On Jailbroken Non-iPhone 4S Devices

Many believe that Apple’s decision to keep Siri away from non-4S iOS devices is part of their marketing strategy, while some believe that the company is simply unable to provide the service to the whole iOS population. But whatever the reason is behind it, it appears like Apple will always be deciding on who all will be playing with the voice assistant. They have killed Siri on jailbroken iOS devices other than the iPhone 4S.
