Apple order 15million iPhone5s for Autumn
There's been rumour after tedious rumour about the release of Apple's iPhone5. Well, here's another one. Apparently, Apple have ordered 15 million iPhone 5s from its Taiwanese suppliers with plans to start shipping the devices in September.
Interestingly, it is reported that the iPhone 5 "does not have any major update from iPhone 4", which means that the new handset will just be a tarted up iPhone 4 without overhaul.
The strongest rumours suggest that the new iPhone will contain the same A5 processor that is in the iPad 2 and an improved camera (an 8-megapixel one as opposed to the current 5-megapixel effort). There is also talk of Apple releasing two versions of the iPhone this year, with one of them being considerably cheaper than the other. Will this pave the way for an iPhone that is free with a contract?
Of course, Apple isn't commenting on these rumours as they know that the mill will keep churning things out until release date (excellent PR work there). The company don't have any events booked for August or September, so we'll just have to wait and see.
