Apple explain that the future is “in the details” on their official iPhone 4 webpage, which can mean many things but for the iPhone 5 release it should mean making life a little simpler for the user.
Being locked into contracts is no fun, and the networks demand longer lock-in periods than ever before, so having two iPhone 5G’s seems a little stupid, the people who upgraded to an iPhone 4 on Verizon may have another option presented to them just a few months later.
The new iPad 2 has been launched in so many configurations; three capacities, three network options, and two colors make things far from simple for the buyer. One important rule of business is to keep things simple, and while Apple are amazing marketers, we need to see more simplicity from them for iPhone 5.
Apple should launch the iPhone 5 as a single model, which can work with either AT&T or Verizon to save more confusion in 2011 / 2012.
Do you think Apple should aim to make things simpler with a single world iPhone, or do you think this could already be in the making? Maybe some people like the idea of having one iPhone for Verizon and one for AT&T? Let us know your thoughts in the poll below.
