I’m never sure if news of yet another new iPhone release is good or bad news to its fans – a bit of both probably. On one hand it’s frustrating because no sooner do you invest, are there murmurs of the next edition, but on the other, it’s exciting to learn just how and where Apple are going to keep improving. This time around, the rumoured improvements (better camera, new processor) are not so great that I will rush to pre-order… at least I say that now!
Apple is expected to launch its next version of the iPhone in September.
Reports yesterday citied equipment suppliers as preparing for a September launch.
The exact specifications of the device are unclear but new media age understands these will be made public from as early as next month as part of a pre-release publicity campaign.
The reports claim the new iPhone will have an eight-megapixel camera and an A5 processor, as featured in the iPad 2 (nma.co.uk 2 March 2011).
Reports are also unclear whether the device will be called the iPhone 5 or 4GS, although it will feature the new iOS5 operating system revealed last month, including the iCloud service (nma.co.uk 7 Jun2 2011).
