The next generation iPhone is expected to make an appearance in the fall along with iOS 6
New photos of the
have hit the web, and it looks like Apple fans have plenty of new changes to look forward to when it arrives.
9 to 5 Mac
got its hands on the backplates and frames of the upcoming next-generation iPhone. From the images posted, it seems Apple is making some external and internal changes.
As with the iPhone 4 and 4S, the next-generation iPhone will be available in black and white. Both the black and white versions have backplates that are made of metal, with the plastic trim at the top and bottom. The metal antenna is molded into these metal backplates, likely as a way of making a unibody enclosure for stronger, yet thinner and lighter gadgets.
The new backplates and frames also show that the next-generation iPhone will be the same width, but it will be longer. The screen will reportedly be longer with a size of 3.999 inches diagonally and will have a resolution of 1136 x 640.
Other notable changes that are apparent from the backplates and frames are a smaller dock connector, redesigned speaker grills, a new opening between the camera lens and the LED flash (which is where a second microphone may be placed for better audio when recording video), the earphone jack has been relocated to the bottom corner of the iPhone, and the front camera lens has become centered above the earpiece.
It also appears that Apple will not feature edge-to-edge technology in this version of the iPhone, but the possibility of Micro-SIM technology (or maybe even no SIMs at all) is pretty strong. LTE and a better processor are a few other add-ons that are expected in the next-generation iPhone.
The next generation iPhone is expected to make an appearance in the fall along with iOS 6.
In addition to next-gen iPhone spec leaks, it was also rumored last week that Apple will release
a Mini iPad
later this year. The Mini version of Apple's famous tablet is rumored to be 7-inches.
Speaking of Apple prototypes, an
original iPad with two dock connectors
sold on eBay for $10,200 yesterday. Apple never formally released an iPad with two dock connectors, where one was designed for portrait and the other for landscape, but that rare gadget made its way onto eBay for an expensive Memorial Day bidding war.

"I am 100% objective. You hate apple. You even admitted as much."
I did? I think you are confusing me with someone else, becasue I dont and I wouldnt have said that. As far as you being 100% objective that is the laugh of the day.
As for the rest, I re-post: I said this to your counter ego TS, but I'll say it to you to. When you post here, all people read is "blah blah blah skew the facts toward Apple blah blah" .... You are all over every smartphone article on this board spouting your disinformation... As much as you think it's your duty to defend every move Apple makes and every product they create, I think its my duty to call you on your twisited words. The fact is your debate skills are far FAR greater than the platform you champion.
If you can just once, do these 4 things I could begin to take you seriously... Say something truthful and negative about Apples business practices. Say something truthful and negative about Apples products. Say something truthful and positive about Googles business practices. Say something truthful and positive about Android products.

As far as you being 100% objective that is the laugh of the day.
Point to anything I said which isn't true, and you might have any shred of an argument.
As for the rest of your paragraphs, it's all emotional tears from you with no relevance to any of my logical and factual points.
The absence of any attempt to contradict any of my points is validation enough. As for your request, I've told you, I'm here for me, not for you, and you are a total irrelevance to me. Thus, it would be a waste of my time to humour you by responding to your request which doesn't interest me. I am satisfied that anybody with intelligence reading this will understand the same.
