For the past four years, Apple has been releasing a new version of iPhone, around the June or July timeframe. Early reports suggested that Apple will be putting off the iPhone 5 until September of this year.
However, a report from electricpig.co.uk tells a different tale, according to the report “Apple’s UK iPhone PR team is approaching journalists from major publications to fly out to the event in San Francisco next month. The obvious conclusion would be that Apple is announcing a new iPhone. Or rather, an updated model. The iPhone 4S is slated as a stop-gap.”
While the iPhone 5 is said to have an all-aluminium back and ultra-thin profile, the iPhone 4S is expected to rock minor cosmetic changes, along with better cameras, an A5 dual-core processor and HSPA+ support, enabling faster mobile broadband.
The news earlier this month that Apple is said to have put the brakes on the volume of iPhone’s being produced in preparation for a new model only confirms our suspicions.
