1. Citing a source within Apple, iMore has recently reported that the next iPhone will have the same 3.5 inch screen that we’re already used to. The site wrote that the iPhone 5 will work on LTE networks, that it will have a smaller USB connector and will likely be launched in the fall.
2. Reuters cited a source in South Korea that claimed the device will be available in Q2 of 2012. The same insider said that Apple is planning on launching an iPhone with a 4.6 inch screen. The current iPhone features a 3.5 inch display and shifting to 4.6 inches would be a significant change.
3. Japanese blog Macotakara, which previously provided valid information about other Apple products, reported that the iPhone 5 will be released in September / October of this year.
4. Last year’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) was held before June 10 but this year the company planned the event for 11 – 15 June. Analysts speculate that the iPhone 5 is likely to be launched during that interval, reports Digitimes.
5. Ibtimes wrote that the new iPhone will arrive on the market sooner than expected, that is before October. The reason for which Apple would hasten the release would be the drop in sales for the iPhone 4S, a device that looks just like the iPhone 4 and that is likely to lose its attractiveness a year after its release.
