Two more bits of news for you as expected with the imminent announcement of the new iPhone 5 the rumour mill is going absolutely crazy, first off we have the picture above which is supposedly a leaked picture from a factory which is printing the boxes. The image shows the new iPhone not with the name iPhone 5 but just “The New iPhone”. Also notice in the picture instead of having 4 icon height on the main screen we now see 5 indicating the taller new screen
Also the video below is of a supposed new iPhone booting up, notice the size of the screen and the difference in the back of the phone. Real or Fake?
Another video of supposed iPhone 5 parts which are looking more and more real as the time for release and the Apple media event comes ever closer
Here we have another image that has been leak from China of more supposed new iPhone 5 parts which include the nano sim tray and smaller home button. Usually I do not read into these images and leaks to much but on the build up to a new launch you can normally get a pretty good idea of what the next model is going to have as most of these leaks become more frequent
We have seen lots of news and rumours about the upcoming iPhone 5 with the lead up to WWDC next month which is quite normal, and something else that is quite normal is getting pictures of parts from a reliable Chinese source that look to be genuine. I think I would put good money on the above and below images being the real deal. Some of the key features we see on these pictures are the re-design of the speaker holes, a new smaller dock connector which has been rumoured for quite a while now and the all important big news A 3.999 inch screen!
Apple have finally and officially sent out their invitations for an “lets talk iphone” media conference on 4th October next Tuesday at Cupertino’s campus company’s Town Hall auditorium. The event is scheduled to begin at 10 A.M. PST.
Then we will finally see if all these rumours of the iPhone 5 are true and the possibility of seeing a iPhone 4s maybe? Personally I cannot wait to end all this speculation which like always has been going mad since the run up to this conference, we can expect a predicted order date of around 15th October which some telecoms companies have leaked
So what do we supposedly know about the iPhone 5?
Larger home button to feature gestures
Apples A5 Processor from the iPad 2
8 Megapixel camera
Thinner Than The iPhone 4
Well thats all I can think of at the moment which we have featured but there is still lots of mystery around the iPhone 4s?
The guys over at 9to5mac have today added these pictures of which they claim are new iPhone 5 cases. Much like the case schematics we showed in the previous post these show the same sort of changes with it being half an inch wider with a taller thinner frame. Now 9to5mac claim these are from a very reliable source in Asia which gave them the correct inside info on the iPad 2 before it was actually released, with the iPhone 5 in production over in Asia I think its safe to say we can start confirming these new features
we also see in the picture above how thin the iPhone 5 is going to be compared to the iPhone 4 now all we need is someone to actually find one in a bar somewhere
Mobile Fun have posted up this picture which they claim has been sent to the by a Chinese iPhone case factory, it is a CAD of the specifications required for the new iPhone 5 cases that are to be produced. To me it looks more like an iPod touch due to the camera placement but it does have some key new features that look interesting.

With Apple in talks with the leading Chinese mobile network carrier I am not surprised that we have seen A leaked photo of a so called iPhone 5 running on the Chinese mobile network. Now to me this looks like a total load of bull, the picture is very unclear as it has a massive flash mark in the middle and it looks very much like a 3Gs with the rounded corners. Although it does have a front facing camera and looks to be running a yet to be released firmware version. Like always I would take these rumours and pictures with a pinch of salt but here is a quote from the source why they are so convinced it is a new iPhone 5
The phone appears to run baseband software with version number 06.10.01, which hasn’t been released yet. It also lacks an IMEI number, just like an iPhone 4 prototype we spotted on eBay. Evaluation devices normally have no IMEI number
The guys over at 9to5mac are reporting that they have inside news from the Foxconn factory from a reliable source claiming they have seen the iPhone 5 prototypes around and confirms most of what we have reported about. They also claim that Apple have finished the design process and are now ready to go into mass production with this model that is being used by Foxconn employees, looks wise they have said it looks almost identical to the iPhone 4 except for 2 key items. The first being that the iPhone 5 has a flat aluminium back much like the picture above, and the second being that the screen is bigger loosing the thick black bezel on the side of the iPhone for a bit of a bigger screen.

More rumours, this time from a Chinese source saying that the iPhone 5 is going to revert back to an Aluminium backing much like the original 2G did. Apple who recently have had court cases regarding the iPhone 4 glass panel and also many complaints on how easy it is to brake the glass panel. Although this does have its downsides as do you remember how heavy the iPhone 2G was, I really do not want to be going back to having that chunky bit of metal back in my pocket….. thoughts people?
