iPhone 5 Rumors: Coming in August, New Design
[ Technology]

Oh, the iPhone 5 rumors. How they capture the hearts and minds of us all.

Rumor has it now that the device, which is supposedly back to being an actual new device, as opposed to an upgraded iPhone 4, will be announced in August at an Apple event, and it will even have a completely new design.

The latest comes from Boy Genius Report, which says, “We have been told by a reliable source to expect a radical new case design for the upcoming iPhone, though we have not been given any additional details surrounding the design of the new iPhone case. What about a release, then? The consensus is that Apple is going to announce the next-generation iPhone at the company’s annual September event, traditionally focused on iPods, but we have heard it’s quite possible Apple will break tradition. According to our source, Apple may hold an event in the beginning or middle of August to announce the new iPhone, with availability to follow in the last week of August.

Some past rumors have had the device coming with a larger screen, and a faster speed in general. It would not be surprising if it turns out to be lighter and thinner, considering how this turned out to be a huge upgrade from the iPad to the iPad 2.

iOS 5 was of course revealed at Apple’s Worldwide developers conference earlier this month. It includes 1,500 new APIs and 200 new user features, including an Android-like “notification center,” a Newsstand feature, built-in Twitter integration, some Safari upgrades, camera upgrades, game center upgrades, and the big iCloud release.

iOS 5, while the SDK is currently available for developers, will ship to customers in the fall. It sure would be nice if there were a whole new iPhone to go along with it.

    I wish Apple would just make the iPhone more slimmer & faster and be done with it-And just update the iOS software periodically. Geez, it’s like they expect us current users of the iPhone4 that we just bought not long ago to upgrade to the newer phone. And they price the new iPhone(s) more than what your would buy a new laptop for. (unless you sign-up for a 2 year contract w/ AT&T or Verizon).

    I refuse to be a sucker anymore by going out and buying a new iPhone when they’re advertising the release of a newly updated iPhone. I think I will keep my current iPhone for at least 4 yrs or maybe longer.

    People they’re called RUMORS!!!! AKA TELEPHONE GAME the information passed down is crap and half of the rumors which is 98% full of lies. The blogger on this website should be arrested and fined for espionage and conspiracy to defraud the general public.

      I believe I was pretty clear about them being rumors.

    Apple never has (and never will) release a HUGE IOS new version… and then “no new phone to run it on”.

    When the IOS 5 launches this fall… it *WILL* have a iPhone 5 to go with it. Not before… and not in 2012.

    …. together ….
