Apple certainly has to make sure that the sixth generation iPhone is something different, since most iFans were not too happy about the 4S. It appears like the device will indeed be different, coming with a LiquidMetal casing and the earlier rumored LTE support to keep up with the times, if the new rumors are to be believed that is.
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.
The new iPad is just out the door and yet it hasn’t stopped the iPhone 5 rumors from coming in stronger than ever.
What’s strange is that instead of calling it the iPad 3 or the iPad HD, Apple came forward and simply introduced the new iPad as the iPad. Will the next iPhone have the same fate?
Unlike what the previous rumor on Apple’s next generation iPhone claimed, the latest info suggests that the company might be planning a fall launch for the iPhone 5 (or whatever the company might end up calling it), and they will keep this schedule for many years to come, that is a new iPhone every fall.
What if you could look at a 3D object on your iPhone and when you moved your head or shifted your eyes, the display would respond accordingly to give you what would be the real world perspective change? Apparently, that could very well be the kind of technology we’ll be finding in the iPhone 5.
“Woah woah woah, what is that?” In an lackluster lineup for the iPhone 5, trendy hipsters seem to be bored with Apple’s next offering. But wait, Samsung has something up their sleeve, it’s the Android-powered Galaxy Note.
We have seen a lot of iPhone 5 rumors earlier, but this new one seems to be pretty trustworthy. It comes to us courtesy of the folks over at 9to5Mac who appear to have got the latest info on the next generation iPhone, tentatively called iPhone 5, via a Foxconn worker.
Remember that Lytro point-and-shoot box camera we talked about back in October? Well, it appears like Steve Jobs was “interested” in that technology, so that’s enough for people to “speculate” that the sensor might make its way into an iPhone sometime in the future.
The latest concept for the upcoming iPhone 5, however, takes an entirely different approach. It includes two home buttons placed along the sides of the iDevice instead.
Sure, can talk to your iPhone with Siri. But what if you could wave to it as well? It appears like you will be able to do just that sometime in the future. From the latest info available via a patent application from Apple, we have got hints of a new 3D GUI for iOS mobile devices.
The company is expected to unveil its new turnaround plans late in the first quarter. It seems T-Mobile could most defiantly use iPhone 5’s magic , to breathe some fresh air into their company. Only time will tell if the iPhone 5 will make an appearance on T-Mobile.
Will we hear about an iPhone 5 announcement soon with a typical June launch date? Will that iPhone 5 have a dual-core A6 processor? All are speculation at this time, Apple could have put this code in to make competitors nervous, but Apple is a company that actually does things rather than make it look like their doing things.
Say hello to the iPhone SJ. As we anxiously await any kind of formal announcement from Apple about a true iPhone 5 successor to the current iPhone 4S, we turn to the various design studios on the web for insights and inspirations. Here is one such example.
Apple in its iPhone design has a success stories that have had a tremendous impact on what the company’s next phone designs might look like. In other words, most probably, you won’t see a QWERTY keyboard, or a slider as a design target for the iPhone 5. What is highly expected though, is a screen size of over 4″, or even 4.3″ diagonally.
On the Apple front, Gene Munster, an analyst with Piper Jaffray, believes that a redesigned iPhone 5 could appear in mid-2012. Such a handset could bring in features that Apple fans have long waited for like the introduction of 4G LTE technology. It takes an analyst to come up with that?
So, the question arises whether you should just snatch up this incrementally updated smartphone or if you should keep playing that waiting game for a real iPhone 5. Well, it depends on your situation.
The media invitation specifically says, “Let’s talk iPhone,” so at least that’s a certain level of confirmation for us. The assumption is that iOS 5 and iCloud will be discussed at the same event, finally putting months of rumors, leaks, and hearsay to rest.
Analyst Mark Moskowitz from J.P. Morgan stated that there will be two new iPhones to be released this year, the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4-plus. I bet you will be browsing the net for some more information regarding that. Apple’s iPhone 4-plus is planned to be launched in emerging markets like China, according to Moskowitz.
Samsung is ready to go on the offensive in its ongoing patent war with Apple. Apple has gotten the Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned in Germany, so Samsung is getting ready to get the iPhone 5 banned as soon as it touches down in Seoul.
At first, we hoped for a June launch of the iPhone 5 to match up with the announcement window of every iteration before it. Then, we heard that it might get delayed until September. Then, we heard October. So, when is the iPhone 5 finally going to hit store shelves? According to a Best Buy leak, the date is set specifically for October 21.
AatmaStudio has released a cool concept video for the iPhone 5. It looks awesome, but how likely is it that the iPhone 5 could actually have the features shown in the video? Ultra thin design, for example, might be possible. Smartphones are getting thinner and thinner, with the title of the world’s slimmest smartphone currently held by the Medias N-04C from Japanese company NEC Casio Mobile. At 7.7mm, the Android handset beats both the Galaxy S II and iPhone 4 when it comes to slimness.
Earlier today we were told that the leaked picture above was the battery and the camera module of the iPhone 5. Internal components like these may not be too exciting to most, but they do reveal something quite interesting. Now it’s been revealed by Kyle Wiens from iFixit that the photo is actually of an iPhone 4 module, not the iPhone 5, and was recognized as such by the iPhone 4 upon connection and usage. Still, Apple could be using the same camera for the iPhone 5.
Maybe this is one of the (potentially many) reasons the iPhone 5 has been delayed several times. It’s not about white paint. Instead, we’re hearing that a version of the upcoming iPhone 5 is being tested with some 4G LTE capabilities. That’d make it pretty different from the current iPhone 4, wouldn’t you say?
With the release of the iPhone 5 around the corner, the rumours are ramping up once more. The latest: The Slim iPhone 5. Started by a francophone who tweeted a photoshopped picture of a condensed iPhone 4, Macrumors ran the pic without the cutline – which read “A picture like this could drive some sites […]
Uh oh. Up until now, the tradition has been for Steve Jobs to take the stage and launch a new version of the popular iPhone every June. This year, it looked like the next iteration — which could be called the iPhone 4S or the iPhone 5 — would get pushed until September. Now, it’s looking like anyone waiting will have to keep waiting until some time in October.
We’re hearing that Apple Stores in both the UK and the US are ramping up their staffing needs for August through to October. Yes, this could just be for the back to school rush. That being said, the September timeframe is also when we are expecting to see the announcement and subsequent launch of the next iPhone model.
The month of June is almost coming to an end, which will also mark the end of a recent tradition of June iPhone launches. Even so, we’ve got some juicy new rumors for the iPhone 5 for you to devour in the meantime. First, the new iPhone may not continue the iPhone 4 aesthetic.
Looks like the rumors keep flip-flopping back and forth on this issue. Will the next iPhone (whether it’s called the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4S) have NFC or won’t it? The newest reports are pushing us in the direction of yes.
Over a month ago, we got a roundup of iPhone 5 rumors, but several of those have now been tweaked or updated according to the latest reports. For starters, it looks like the flash is moving.
Everyone and their grandmother (almost literally) is sitting on pins and needles waiting for Steve Jobs to cross the stage yet once again to reveal how he’s changing smartphones all over again with the iPhone 5. The latest rumors point toward a September launch, so until then, we have conjecture and hearsay. We also have the latest mockup of the iPhone 5, based on the most recent and most accurate information available.
On the one hand, we have tradition. Every year since the first iPhone was announced so many moons ago, Apple has shown off a new version of its touchscreen mobile phone every June. Without fail. Given this and the June timing of WWDC, it only makes sense that the next iPhone (whether its an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or whatever name they give it) would be unveiled this June too.
The boys and girls at Research in Motion are dedicated to bringing NFC technology to every new BlackBerry, but it looks like their counterparts in Cupertino aren’t nearly as enthusiastic. Based on a report from UK paper The Independent, Apple is not going to include NFC in its iPhone 5.
How do we know so much about something that doesn’t even exist yet? Well, because there are many analysts out there who keep track of component inventory, manufacturers and anything related to building Apple products all together; they’re paid to. Although the iPhone 4 is brand spanking new to Verizon, and not even a year old on AT&T, many are expecting the iPhone 5 to come in June 2011.
Yeah, the Verizon iPhone 4 is here, but it’s not really all that different from the GSM-friendly AT&T version. Most enthusiasts are more interested in the possibilities of the iPhone 5, but what are the latest rumors telling us?
You know how Starbucks is starting to accept mobile payments via barcode? They decided not to use NFC because of lack of adoption at this point. But that may soon be changing, because both the upcoming iPhone 5 and the iPad 2 could be rocking near field communications.
You know that space age Liquidmetal technology we love to hear about that’s in everything from high-tech gadgets to thousand dollar watches? Well, it may have just become an internal component to some seriously jaw dropping technology. Apple uses Liquidmetal in the iPhone and iPad casing — oddly enough not in the iPhone 4s back glass — but apparently a new use for this ultralight weight stronger than steel GMO have been found; to house a vat of potentially explosive combustable liquid to power your gadgets.
For most people, the new iPhone 7 models are a luxury and the meager paychecks of a regular employee are not going to buy you the cool new iPhones that come in colors such as Jet Black and Matte Black. If you’re an Alaskan Malamute, however, who happens to have a very wealthy owner, you […]
Apple is said to have solved the battery issues with the rumored 5.5-inch iPhone 6. The device might get released sooner than expected.
