The iPhone launch day has come and gone and if you were lucky to get one at the store or get your pre order you know how amazing it is. I am already starting my review on this amazing phone. I absolutely love it. I hope you all love it as much as I do.
- Next iPhone will ship in Mid-September
- 2 new iPhone cases will be released. The first will like the current bumper case and another will have additional features which may come after launch.
- iPod Touch will be released alongside the new iPhone like in the past with the same screen resolution.
- New Nano could be bigger.
- 7.85 iPad Mini with a new 19 pin dock connector and will ship in November just in time for the holidays. This follows many reports that Apple is working on Mini smart vases and Smart covers that resemble the current iPad screen size.
- Finally, Apple will be updating it’s new full sized iPad line with a thinner design less than a year after release. The New 4th gen iPad will be tweaked with a new back side mic and a less hot thinner design. Sharp’s rumored late IGZO displays would have made the iPad thinner and less thick and power hungry/hot.
“Apple’s current plan for the fourth-generation iPad is to release another relatively modest body tweak, which would keep the shape basically the same while introducing the new small Dock Connector, a rear-side microphone, and spec-improving/heat-reducing changes to the hardware inside. The rear-side mic might aid in noise cancellation or improve audio quality during rear video recording, and is apparently just like one found on the iPhone 5, between the camera and flash; prototype iPad minis apparently have a mic on the back in the same place.
However there has always been a rumor of a New iPad being launched with the New iPhone every year and it never happens. I would bet we wont see another full sized iPad until early 2013.
And finally iLounge says that all of this could happen at 1 event or could be multiple events.
The next iPad’s release date is a big question mark right now. As noted with the * above for the iPad mini, Apple could hold a special event just to announce the sub-8” tablet, and our source suggests that Apple might be ready to refresh the iPad at the same time.
I still would like to think the next iPad will be announced early 2013 keeping Apple’s yearly schedule but who knows maybe they will surprise us.
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 case-mate.com 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.
Well it seems that the rumors of an October launch for the iPhone 5 might not be accurate. A new rumor says that Apple has started giving carriers iPhone 5’s to test them on their network. Also according to DigiTimes Apple has made an order for 10 million iPhone 5’s ahead of launch.
Pegatron Technology has landed orders for 10 million units of iPhone 5 to become the second ODM of the smartphone. Shipments will start in September, according to industry sources.
So it seems like it is going to be a September launch… At least for the U.S anyways.
So I guess those September iPhone 5 launch rumors might not be as accurate as we all thought they were. It seems that the iPhone 5 might actually launch in October according to a new report. This is brought to us by AllThingsD which has been right about many iPhone rumors before.
So those rumors claiming the iPhone 5 will debut in late September? They’re wrong. Instead, it’s going to be an October surprise — the month in which Apple will be launching its next generation iPhone.
AT&T has bumped up iPhone insurance last month and the last 2 weeks of September was blocked from employees taking vacations. This also fits nicely with the iPhone 5 international launch which we were told would be launching. We will defiantly have to wait and see.
