Some surmise things that are just plain crazy—that Apple would deign to run Android on its devices. Others, like speculation the next-gen iThings will have bigger or higher-resolution displays, seem more likely. In either case, customers and enterprises are clamoring for information on what they should expect from Apple when it finally unveils its new iPhones and iPads. With that in mind, here we offer up a quick cheat-sheet taking a look at rumors swirling about the iPhone 5 that we think deserve the most attention. Will they all come true? As with other Apple products, it’s impossible to know for sure. But one thing is certain, if the iPhone and iPad 3 do come with these features, they will be highly desirable on the open market. Flip through the following slides to learn more about what could be coming next from Apple.
Launching This Fall [expected more delays]
The latest rumors suggest the iPhone 5 could launch in MOSTLY October. Apple hasn’t said if it will, but based on the fact that we haven’t seen it yet, the timing seems perfect for a new smartphone in the fall.
Edge-to-Edge Display [ 4″]
One of the iPhone’s biggest problems its display is smaller than some competitors. The iPhone 4 has a 3.5-inch screen. The Samsung Galaxy S II ships with a 4.3-inch display. That’s not a good thing for Apple. Bigger displays appeal to consumers. By delivering an edge-to-edge display, Apple can match its competition and quiet its critics.
iPhone 5 Will run on iOS 5
Rumors suggest that the iPhone 5 will run iOS. Apple traditionally offers new software with its latest smartphones and there’s no reason to suggest it won’t do the same this time around. But will iOS 5 come out at the same time as Apple’s next iPhone or before it?
So Will the iPad 3If the iPhone 5 ships with iOS 5, there should be no reason to suggest the iPad 3 won’t do the same. At the Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this year, Apple made it clear that iOS 5 will offer a host of major improvements that its customers will like. Realizing that, the company won’t want to offer iOS 4 in the iPad 3.
iPhone 5 Will Come With NFC
Near-field communication is all the rage in the mobile space. Earlier this year, Google unveiled a Wallet service that will allow NFC-compatible Android-based smartphones integrate credit card information and offer users the ability to make payments from their handsets. However, the NFC market is still in its infancy, and it’s likely that it won’t grow until Apple enters the space. Will the tech giant do that with the iPhone 5? Time will tell.
iPhone 5 Will Come to More Carriers
The iPhone 4 is available on Verizon’s and AT&T’s networks, but recent rumors suggest Apple might also offer its smartphone on Sprint’s network. And now that the merger between AT&T and T-Mobile USA may be kaput, it could come to T-Mobile’s network, as well. Offering the iPhone 5 on more carriers couldn’t be a bad thing.
FULL HD Camera with 8 Megapixels
Rumour is that they are planing to have Full HD camera for face time and backside. Backside camera will be having high resolution of 8 Megapixels.
