The rumour mill is filled with leads and speculations regarding the very next version of the iPhone, the iPhone 5. Apple will want to wipe out the memory of the iPhone 4 which we know has antenna troubles, also to mollify those people who were unhappy with it. If these rumours are genuine, what can we look ahead to from the next iPhone model?
The name of the model alone is in speculation. Based on the the past of iPhones, the newest handset may not even be labelled the iPhone 5; it might very well be launched into the marketplace as the iPhone 4S or the iPhone 4G depending on the extent of architectural revision. With the fantastic features and radical design of the iPhone 4 (apart from the antenna issue), most observers will not expect a large amount of major changes with the next generation.
The rivalry against the iPhone 4 is closing in. So perhaps Apple is putting about these rumours concerning the upcoming iPhone 5 to stir interest and the thoughts of shoppers. Some of the handsets available in the market are actually at the same level or even better than the iPhone 4.
Speculative Features Of The iPhone 5
The general public is sort of excited about the iPhone 5 and there is certainly plenty of speculation about what sort of features it could carry. Again, taking a look at Apple’s track record on updating the models, there is a great chance that the next iPhone will just be the updated version of the iPhone 4. The setback with the antenna will surely need to be be put right. All it takes is to install a more powerful processor and enrich many of iPhone features slightly, and presto! there’s your iPhone 5. Some experts are saying that a really new feature is very doubtful up to this point.
Listed here are some of the expected features:
Near Field Technology (NFC) enabled, which can make your iPhone into a digital wallet
A monitor that is bigger than iPhone4
Addition of some more carriers into the network like AT&T and Verizon
4G network link
A brand new iOS 5 operating system
Probably the most anticipated feature of the iPhone 5 will be the inclusion of NFC technology. Dependable sources indicated the NFC will surely be incorporated and that the hardware for this will likely be supplied by NXP Semiconductor which is the leading manufacturer of NFC technologies. Probably spells the end of money as we all know it!
It is as plain as the nose on your face that Apple is preparing for their next iPhone model. With so many rumours circulating all around the Web, it is hard not to be excited. This type of state of affairs is what Apple actually desires because they know from experience that this will lead to more sales!
In case you are having any difficulties using your iPhone you are best off bringing it into one of your big Apple stores. What ever you do I would certainly advise that you avoid the market stalls for getting any repairs or updates sorted. They might be good for the odd accessory, but I certainly would not trust them with my iPhone.
