iLounge have been at it again, those guys really do get all the best rumours. They have apparently got the latest rumours from their undisclosed source about the release of the next iPhone the iPhone 5, this was actually published on the 3rd but I was a little slow on the uptake.
Now iLounge have been a little hit and miss as of late with their rumours ranging from quite accurate to unimaginable. This is what their source has to say about the rumours of the new iPhone model:
“What we’ve learned: the new iPhone will indeed be longer and thinner than the iPhone 4 and 4S. Approximate measurements are 125mm by 58.5mm by 7.4mm—a 10mm jump in height, nearly 2mm reduction in thickness, and virtually identical width. According to our source, Apple will make one major change to the rear casing, adding a metal panel to the central back of the new iPhone. This panel will be flat, not curved, and metal, not ceramic. Our artist’s rendition provides a rough idea of what this change will look like; it echoes the current-generation iMac design, to be sure.”
The other changes that the phone might see according to these rumours are that the dock connector will be smaller than the original 30 pin dock connector that Apple has used in all it’s products. If they do this it will only be a matter of time before the iPods and the iPad follows suit. It will be interesting t see if these rumours are true as Apple have not done a big shake up of the iPhone for a while now so it is long overdue.
