As the above video shows we have been seeing many complaints around the blogging world about this particular iPhone 5 scrolling issue. You may think whats the big deal I am never going to do that on the screen but the real problems are for the developers. If they are designing an app that requires lots of fast movement which many of them do then they could be in for alot of problems. The people so far that have looked into this fault believe it could be a hardware issue, we hope not, we hope it is just something Apple could patch for us
Right so after the big news yesterday we now all know what the iPhone 5 features and what it looks like, by now you probably all know the new features but I thought we would do a quick run down
As seen in the picture above it now features a 4″ Retina display which makes the phone taller but it is the same width as the iPhone 4s
New A6 Processor
The A6 is the replacement for the A5 which is in the iPhone 4s and we have been promised double the speed and handling capabilities of the A5 chip, so we should see some exciting games in the future
New Wireless and 4G
It now has a new wireless processor which will more than double wireless speeds and all of the iPhone 5′s are 4G capable which can see around 33mbps with good signal, hopefully this gets rolled out here in the UK very soon
New Dock Connector
We will now also see a new dock connector which we have been promised is now lightening quick, for all those people that claim this is a money making idea it may well be but they have also released a dock adapter which offers backwards capability
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
As always when we get closer and closer to a new iPhone launch we get more and more rumours coming in and generally alot of them come from China as this is where most of the parts are produced. The iPhone back cover we can see in this video is what I believe will be the true rear cover for the next generation iPhone. We have now seen this cover appearing numerous times from numerous different sources and they all measure up and all feature things such as space for the 4″ screen and the new smaller dock connector
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!
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
Could this be the iPhone 5? This is brought to us by the same people that released the first ever iPhone 4 videos so I would say that they are a reliable source. It shows off a new multi tasking system and also the integrated Facebook feature which are some very nice inclusions although there does not seem to be much real difference between the two. Hmmm for me something isnt right what do you think?
