In the next few days Apple will confirm mostly what we already knew about the iPad 2, and that will mean the focus will start to shift to another Apple device, iPhone 5 — that we expect a June announcement.
Following the routine of previous years, new Apple rumors in the last few days have included parts of (apparently) iPhone 5. While these showed a bigger screen thanks to an improved edge to edge display, there is no way to confirm this because the part was not stacked next to anything else, for a size comparison.
No matter how authentic the image is, Apple will be making some big changes for the iPhone 5th generation device. The device may just be a phone, but it’s also something that changes people’s lives upon each new release, thanks to Apple being a trendsetter and not a company that follows trends. Apple builds products with a lot more control, and superior build quality not to mention better access to iTunes and the cool factor of Apple.
Some users will find Apple to be slow off the mark with some technologies’ like the new 4G LTE, and these buyers may choose the HTC Thunderbird or another device by Verizon, but does Apple have a reason for waiting with some trends, and instead setting their own. We’ve heard already that Apple may launch a new A5 CPU, a core with dual-core graphics, and NFC with a twist from Apple that may also set a new trend.
Be ready. The iPhone 5 rumors are just starting to heat up, especially with the iPad 2 about to be official, expect more photos appearing online over the coming weeks. The Verizon iPhone 4 shocked some readers with the change in routine for Apple, so we could see the same again with a 4G LTE version of iPhone 5 on Verizon at a later date, possibly Jan 2012. The next phone from Apple is sure to make waves in the market again, read more on the iPhone 5.
