Yet another 6 rumours about the iPhone 5 and iPad 3
You can't move for blogs wetting themselves about what Apple may or may not launch next. One story will contradict another, rumour is spun into facts, and all of it feeds an endless cacophony of bedroom pundits.
Since Bitterwallet works from a bunker, not a bedroom, we rise about the nonsense and speculation and choose only to report hard facts. Nah, not really. Here's some more whispering about the iPhone 5 and iPad 3, but since it's prestigious news organisation Bloomberg playing chief rumourmonger, it's probably more trustworthy than most. Or not, probably:
• The new handset will be announced in September to coincide with the launch of Apple's new mobile operating system, iOs5
• iPhone 5 will include the A5 processor, the same that Apple added to the iPad 2
• The 5 megapixel camera currently found in the iPhone 4 will be replaced with an 8 megapixel camera
• The new iPhone will closely resemble the iPhone 4
• Apple is also working a cheaper version of the iPhone to attract customers in developing countries
• The screen resolution on Apple’s new iPad will be about a third more than that of the iPad 2
One final comment that the features includes a quote from its sources: "As Apple upgrades its mobile operating system it may eventually stop guaranteeing that all iOS apps run on older models, such as the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS." Since iOS 4 robbed the perfectly capable iPhone 3G of its functionality, that seems to be a given. But that Apple might simply shrug its shoulders and stop providing any support to the 3GS - a two year old handset that is still been sold now - that's a move that might upset plenty of customers, and rightly so.
