There are a bunch of rumours currently circulating the web that suggest that the next iPhone will have a bigger screen, and also that it might be here soon. But they are just rumours, which could do with some perspective.
The iPhone 4S is old news, so how about some new iPhone 5 rumours to chew through, or hunch over in pain at, depending on your love for Apple rumours. The iPhone 5,1 and Apple TV J33 have been exposed by beta firmware.
According to supposed-moles mining in Apple's Asian supply chain, Apple has signed up both Hitachi and Sony to create 4-inch iPhone LCD screens, which will apparently become available next year. Will the larger-iPhone rumour ever die?
In short: everyone expected an iPhone 5; we got an iPhone 4S. A lot of the letdown and confusion was the result of rumour mill over-grindage, but Business Insider says the iPhone 5 was real—and Apple scrapped it.
It's been over four years since the first iPhone came out, and a lot has changed, from the screen to the CPU to the form factor. How drastic has this change been over the years? Here's a look at the iPhone's evolution, from 1 to 4S.
This is probably a joke by someone in Spain, but a Gizmodo reader just took this photo of this banner. It says "Presenting iPhone 5. Now available." It appeared a few minutes ago at the FNAC store in Madrid's center.
The next iPhone, whatever it's called, will be announced tomorrow. Our Yankee older brother will be bringing together the best coverage from our amazing friends all around the web, like gdgt live, Ars Technica's liveblog and more, over at live.gizmodo.com.
Well, this is surprising. A reader over at TUAW saw both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S pop up on a US network's website. Not only is Cincinnati Bell not a big carrier like other US networks, but it in the prepaid section. What the?
Talking at Macworld Asia, state-owned Chinese carrier China Unicom claims that Apple's iPhone 5 will run on suppafast HSPA+ networks. It's not LTE, but that's a 3x increase: a maximum download speed of 21Mbps compared to the current 7.2Mbps.
9to5Mac is claiming some giant news about the next iPhone. The specs aren't shocking: a generous 1GB of RAM and the iPad 2's A5 processor. But what Apple's going to push hardest is Assistant: your iPhone talks to you.
