InRumor offers you a recap of this week’s iPhone 5 rumors.

iPhone 5 and iPad 3 to arrive in May and June, iTV in 2013?

Recent Apple rumor claim that the iPhone 5 could be released at the Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) to be held this year in June. In addition, the blog MacOtakara announces that the iPad 3 will be unveiled in March during a presentation organized by Apple.

As for the iTV, DigiTimes reports that the Cupertino tech giant isn’t likely to release the rumored Apple-branded TV in 2012 because Sharp, the company rumored to provide display panels for the iTV, isn’t ready to ship the IZGO (indium gallium zinc oxide) display panels that Apple plans to use for its device.

Consequently, the release date of the iTV could be pushed to the second half of the year.

iPhone 5 and iPad 3 to feature “macroscalar” architecture

A trademark application from Apple for the word “Macroscalar” was published by the US Patent & Trademark Office last week, sparking speculation that the Cupertino tech giant is getting ready to implement the technology on its upcoming products, which many assume to be the highly-anticipated iPhone 5 and iPad 3.

Macroscalar architecture provides better support for the performance of a processor, while consuming less power.

Apple is likely to develop this type of architecture since the company designs its own processors, software and hardware.

iPhone 5, iPad 3 and iTV could bring Apple stock to a price of $665

Canacorrd Genuity analyst Michael Walkley estimates that Apple will gain more market share in the first quarter of this year, all thanks to the high demand for iPhones. Walkley believes that the demand for the iPhone5, iTV and iPad3 should drive the stock to $665.

Regarding the release date of the iPhone 5, the analyst explains that competitors are planning launches so that they avoid competition. The analyst also predicts that the iPad3 will premiere in the first week of March.

As for the iTV, Walkley estimates that the device, which is rumored to integrate Siri, besides other Apple gadgets, will bring a significant growth to the company.

iPhone 5 could sport 3D eye-tracking technology

Apple has filed a new patent that reveals a 3D eye-tracking-based interface, which could be used in future generations of devices such as the iPhone, iPad or the Mac.

The patent describes a system that relies on sensors which track the position of a user’s eyes with the front facing camera.

The technique could create a “virtual 3D operating system environment,” according to the filing, which would allow a user to “look around” the interface on their display.

iOS 5.1 to arrive on March 9?

Operator profiles issued by Apple suggest the update could launch on March 9.

Your Daily Mac examined eleven new profiles for various iPhone operators in Japan, France, Greece, Finland and Sweden.

iOS 5.1 improvements include the battery life on the iPhone 4S and Siri’s voice dictation. Another important change will be the Facebook integration.

Gremlin, Celeste and YourTube compatible with iOS 5

Celeste, the latest application that lets you transfer files via Bluetooth to other phones other than iPhones, will be updated and will be compatible with the latest version of the iOS.

The development team, Cocoanutapps, announced the arrival of the update via Twitter. Celeste is not a new tweak, it is already available for iOS 4.3 +. However, the last update dates back in August.

Besides Celeste, other tweaks to be updated are YourTube and Gremlin. A first beta of each will come out soon.
