iPhone 5 Rumors
Sources claim Apple will announce the iPhone 5 on September 12th at a special event inside Apple headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. The sixth generation iPhone may carry the iPhone 5 name, or take after the iPad line with a new iPhone moniker.
A late September iPhone 5 release date looks good with September 21st offered up as the likely date you’ll be able to buy the iPhone 5 in stores and online.
iPhone 5 preorders may start shortly after the September 12th launch event, though Apple waited several days before accepting iPhone 4S preorders in 2011.
This video will catch you up on the iPhone 5 release date in under 2-minutes.
The iPhone 5 has no confirmed features, but the most likely specs and features are starting to take shape as leaks spill possible details ahead of the release.
- 4G LTE
- 4-inch Retina Display
- A5X Processor
- Smaller Dock Connector
- Larger 4-inch display
- Taller, thinner iPhone
Apple resisted consumer demand for larger displays and 4G LTE for the past several years, but this time around it looks like the company feels 4G LTE is mature enough to add to the iPhone 5.
Verizon boasts the largest 4G LTE network, covering 75% of the U.S. population, while AT&T comes in second and Sprint a distant third.
The larger display could add 17% more viewing area without drastically increasing the size of the new iPhone. The rumored 4-inch display doesn’t come close to the 4.85-inch Galaxy S III display or the rumored 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2 display.
While some users are not thrilled with the taller display and design, estimates peg potential iPhone 5 sales at 6 to 10 million in September, with the possibility of 170 million iPhone 5 device sales in the first year.
