After Apple unveiled the marginially improved iPhone 4S in the last quarter of 2011, Apple have been returning to their development labs to create the next iteration of its popular phone. PC PAL have been through all current rumours which are circulating the internet, in order to provide you with our summary of the key iPhone 5 highlights.

Launch
Several reports are hinting at a September launch for the iPhone 5, with rumours hinting that the phone will be unveiled on September 12 with a retail launch on September 21.

Price
The 16GB iPhone 5S lines up in retailers with a hefty £499 price tag, which continues up to £699 for the 64GB edition. It is believed that the sixth-gen model of the iPhone will simply replace the iPhone 4S in terms of price points, with any 128GB storage option likely to exceed the £799 price mark.

Name
Following the March launch of the new iPad, it has been suggested that Apple may cease the numbered naming convention of the iPhone as well, moving the market in line with its Mac offerings which see multiple product overhauls occur whilst maintaing the same base name.

 

Specifications

  • A patent awarded to Apple hints at new LCD screen technology which reduces the space taken up by the screen.
  • Leaked photos on the internet show the new iPhone contains a smaller SIM card slot (nano-SIM), which Apple has been pushing for as the standard.
  • A larger battery suggests an increase in capacity.
  • A taller screen (4") which is able to display five rows of icons, as demonstrated by the recent developer tool release, instead of the four displayed currently with iOS 5
  • The iPhone's current 30-pin connector may be reduced to a 9-pin connector. iMore predict that all new devices in Apple's iOS family will be getting the updated, smaller dock connector.
  • 4G LTE to compliment the March 2012 iPad release which already features this technology.
