Apple Employee: iPhone 5 release, bigger than Verizon iPhone

By Daniel Chubb - Feb 13, 2011

We have seen a lot of predictions made for the Apple iPhone 5, and everyone has an opinion, even Apple employees. We’re hearing from Kevin Lee via, who has apparently had a chat with an Apple employee about the iPhone 5 release.

It’s not clear who this employee is, but they apparently made claims – see the article here – that the iPhone 5 will be a “bigger event than the Verizon iPhone release”, we’re not sure on the credibility of this employee but having heard from many store employees making claims in the past, they often feel they know more than the public, which from our experience is mostly wrong.

Although we cannot confirm how far up the Apple chain this “employee” is, they went on to say that the iPhone 5 will have an improved processor, which will support much better graphics. Have a read of the Examiner article and let us know your thoughts on this rumor.

In other news, we have seen the iPhone 5 impact store lines for the Verizon iPhone 4, which could mean some buyers will hold out for a possible 5th generation iPhone, or to see what happens within the next few months.

Do you feel you know more about the iPhone 5 than most Apple employees?
