Is this the iPhone 5 form? Apple rumor round up 9/15/11

Well it seems we have a lot of iPhone 5 news so lets get started!

iphone 5 to have radical new design according to new case-mate cases.

Well here is something that caught me. The Case maker Case-Mate has posted a new page on their site allowing people to get information on the iPhone and sign up for notifications when the iPhone 5 and cases are ready for the device. This page can be viewed here. The page has been pulled so thank you to BGR. You can also get to this page by going to and then scrolling over iPhone Cases and there will be iPhone 4s/5 categories both bring you to the same page. I sort of like the device mockup I don’t this this is actually what the device will look like and Case-Mate is going along with all the rumors but I definitely like the Aluminum back.

iphone 5 screen protecters show larger display and longer home button

Something didn’t seem right about that home button I reported on a while ago as the shape didn’t look right. And screen protecter makers must have thought the same thing as you see above is a screen protecter for what they think will be the iPhone 5 screen size and home button size. Notice that the home button hole is a large oval shape which has been reported for some time. I think it is real and it will in fact will fit the iPhone 5.

Could this be the iPhone 5 home button?


The image you see above made its way onto cultofmac and it is told to be the home button for the iPhone 5. Now if this is true then the rumors of the new capacitive home button is surely dead and that might just kill the capacitive volume buttons as well. Now you see above the little battery snapped circle? Yes that is the same as the iPhone through the iPhone 4 it makes sure the little plastic button comes back up so you can click it again to make start multitasking. Now if this is what the iPhone 5 home button is than it confuses me. You see if Apple were to keep the home button then why not make it the same one that has been on the iPhone for around 4-5 years now. It makes sense to keep the same home button and honestly it looks kinda stupid. I don’t know why they would get rid of the circle for sort of half circle if you want to call it that which makes me think it is a fake and someone once again is trying to make money of a product that hasn’t even been released yet. I don’t think Apple would make the home button look like that ever especially giving the fact that leaked supposed iPhone 5 image found in photo stream has a sort of oval home button or touch area makes me think this is even more fake. I could be wrong. Only time will tell.
