The iPhone 5 -- the next gen iPhone may just find itself in a store near you, sooner than expected.
Numerous blogs are doing their rounds about the iPhone 5 after the ‘Know Your Mobile’ website stated that the phone is ready and will be shipped in August.
For all of you Apple enthusiasts and those who aren’t -- it’s not too late. The date for the launch of iPhone 5 has been set within three or so weeks from now, on August 7.
The iPhone 5 is expected to be thinner, with a massive screen and fine-tuned search features. The iPhone 5 will feature the next version of Apple’s iOS operating system, iOS 6. The new OS is set to give a good amount of competition to fellow competitors, Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 and Android Jelly Bean 4.1.
Rumour also has it that this launch is marked by Apple’s answer to the pressure laid down by rival tech giant’s third iteration of its fast-selling series — the Samsung Galaxy S III.
As was with the iPhone 4S launch, the world’s most valuable technology company missed its quarterly expectations in the fall for the first time in years. But is the iPhone maker heading for the same ground with the iPhone 5?
Well one thing’s for sure, we’re all waiting to get a crack at the next iPhone from Apple!
