Will the iPhone 5 be released as ‘The New iPhone’?

During the conference that took place Wednesday in San Francisco, Tim Cook announced that 2012 will be a year in which we’ll get to see many interesting things from Apple.

“Across the year, you’re going to see a lot more of this kind of innovation,” he said.

So what exactly could Apple launch in 2012? The iPhone 5 or “The New iPhone,” MacBooks and iOS 6.

The Cupertino company could include Retina Display in Macs or design a new Maps application with turn-by-turn navigation.

Apple presented its latest version of iPad on Wednesday and much to everyone’s surprise chose not to name it the iPad 3 or iPad HD, but opted instead for the name of The New iPad.

In an interview to the Wall Street Journal, Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, explained that the name was chosen from a simple reason: to become unpredictable for everyone. Apple didn’t provide any detailed explanation for the choice of the iPad’s name.

Many people are confused about the issue, especially since the iPad 2 was released in 2010 and now everyone was expecting to see the iPad 3.

Some argue that the naming seems logical as Apple could have wanted to avoid a product numbering, as it happened with the iPhones.

Others believe that the new iPad is carving Apple’s future iOS device naming convention in the hope of a branding makeover.

Taking all these into account, do you believe the company will release the iPhone 5 under the name of The New iPhone?

Everything is possible, especially when it comes to Apple, a company renowned for its unpredictability.

“The new iPhone” is expected to feature Gorilla Glass 2 for its display and an improved camera. Rumors also suggest it will be powered by a quad-core ARM A6 processor and will include larger storage options.

It also should be a 4G LTE device on several networks since Apple launched the New iPad for both Verizon and AT&T with different versions for each carrier.
