It’s Out! Check out this article for the Full scoop on the iPhone 5:
So first of all, I promised I wouldn’t get on the iPhone “5” rumor train until it was close enough to the release date and I had something useful for our readers.
With only two weeks before Apple’s Next Big Announcement (September 12th, now confirmed by Apple), we have been flooded by part leaks and speculation on the next generation iPhone and we’ve had enough time to present vetted information that give readers the summary of what to expect.
The Next iPhone Design
The alleged leaked parts indicate a number of significant changes in design such as a larger screen and a new generation of peripheral connections that will define the next era of Apple Mobile devices .
Here is a great video from Tech Radar with an overview of all the design changes:

Let me first layout my argument for why the New iPhone
will should not be called the “iPhone 5”.
Yes, I know, I know look at the clear number 5 shadow in the Official Apple Invitation. Might be just hype, but feeling lucky I didn’t put any money on this of course.
Just wondering if this is the iPhone 5, which of the 6 phones doesn’t get it’s own version number. Ok, I give up…anyways skip past this part and get to the design if you are sick of this debate.
From my Google+ post from about a month ago:
1st iPhone: ‘iPhone’
2nd iPhone: ‘iPhone 3G’
3rd iPhone: ‘iPhone 3GS’
4th iPhone: ‘iPhone 4’
5th iPhone: ‘iPhone 4S’
We just had the iPhone 5 with the 4S, it only makes sense to have it called a single number if it is that current generation. If anything people should be calling it the “iPhone 6”, because it’s the 6th Generation phone, but the most likely candidate is “The New iPhone”.
Just For Fun
