Apple’s Tim Cook: To Unveil iPhone 5 on October 4

Written on September 22, 2011 by Adam Eve

Rumor alert! Tim Cook will reveal the next-gen iPhone on October 4.

Based from an AllThingsD insider, Apple will reveal the iPhone 5 on October 4. Tim Cook will lead the show, together with Phillip W. Schiller (SVP for Worldwide Product Marketing), Scott Forstall (SVP for iOS Software), and Eddie Cue (SVP for Internet Software and Services.)

However, the devices that will be announced on October 4 remains a mystery. New iPods are most probably to be announced, while others also anticipates an iPad 3 announcement. But ultimately, many are getting excited on whether Apple will announce the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S or both. The iOS 5 is also expected to be officially released on the said date, as it’s already nearing its Gold Master version.

If the October 4 turns out to be true, that would mean an almost immediate roll out of the next-gen iPhone on October 15. But keep in mind that none of these has been officially confirmed, so take it with a pinch of salt.

Chinese Supplier: No iPhone 5 This Year

Written on September 21, 2011 by Adam Eve

Another word from the Rumorville came out: No iPhone 5 this year according to a Chinese supplier.

Following a Chinese supplier’s claim that there will be no iPhone 5 this year, doubts were cast upon the possibility of Apple launching a next-generation handset this year. The Chinese supplier is the same provider of images of iPhone 4S components, which were sourced from Shenzen, China. The alleged iPhone 4S components – battery, camera, home button, dock connector assembly and display – are all available for purchase now, according to a report.

There has been much buzz about whether Apple’s next mobile device would be a slight upgrade to iPhone 4, or an all-new design with superior components. There are also speculations that the Cupertino-based company would launch two models in the iPhone range.

New York Times reported last week that an anonymous Apple employee promised that the next-generation iPhone would be “fairly different” from iPhone 4. However, he only mentioned one model. But contradictory to that was an evidence later reported by 9to5Mac. According to the latter’s source, Apple will be rolling out two new units — with one suffering from production delays.

The rumor mill is really heating up, as Apple is soon to have its great reveal day ahead of the holiday season.

Apple, to Announce iPhone 5 on October 5

Written on September 19, 2011 by Adam Eve

Apple's iPhone 5 is said to be unveiled on October 5, with an official release a week after.

An alleged insider from Apple informed PocketGamer that the company will be conducting a press conference on October 5 — covering a new hardware. And albeit it is thought to include the iPhone 5 and a cheaper iPhone 4 version, it is also said that the company will a releasing a 3G-enabled iPod Touch.

It is then claimed that the iPhone 5 will be released a week after the big reveal, which is October 12. Apparently, the date is just a few days earlier with what Stephane Richard, CEO of French mobile carrier — Orange, recently announced the handset would be available. It is also alleged that the new handset will feature a slightly larger display and a slimmer chassis. The cheaper iPhone 4 is rumored to be available to the consumers as well.

While the rumors surrounding iPhone 5 suggested that it will be a totally different device, people won’t be able to know until it is revealed by Apple. That said, do you think October 5 makes sense for an iPhone 5 announcement?

Case-Mate: Accidentally Leaks iPhone 5 Design?

Written on September 16, 2011 by Adam Eve

Case-Mate is believed to leak the iPhone 5 design unintentionally with its now-gone products page.

Even before news sites were able to post the most recent buzz, Case-Mate pulled its web page which is said to showcase a number of iPhone 5 cases.

Replaced with a landing page, the now-removed product content looked like renders anyway. However, they were probably based on partly known specs. Thus, the cases offered styling cues that were taken from the iPad 2 and iPod Touch with a tapered back and thinner casing. Case-Mate’s removal of the product page suggests that it wasn’t posted intentionally, although it could be a ploy to get people to their landing page.

Apple is reported to announce the next iPhone in the coming weeks, while Case-Mate’s images were just the latest in the series of leaks concerning the next handset.

Best Buy Prepares for Two iPhone 5 Launches

Two stages of iPhone 5 releases on Best Buy -- for real?

Best Buy prepares itself for the launch of iPhone 5 in two stages based from two leaked information on Sunday. One discovery from a staff memo shows that the retail company expects an iPhone 5 introduction soon, along with  an “October week 1 launch.” The same BGR instance also claimed that it expects a Sprint iPhone 5 release.

Other clues potentially put the said release later. Best Buy Mobile managers are due to talk about “upcoming big release dates” on October 10 and on October 21, receiving a new “Apple fixture.” The installation described to This Is My Next wasn’t attached to the iPhone by name, but it would unusually needed a manager to be available an hour earlier than usual for inventory — similar to what happened last year for the iPhone 4.

Both tips leave room for flexibility in the release, but it support the overall expectation of a mid-October launch with Sprint added as a third US carrier. Some room exists for other devices to show in October, such as expected iPod updates, but few are likely to get the same level of attention from retail staff.

Sprint to Sell iPhone 5 alongside AT&T and Verizon [RUMOR]

Written on August 24, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Rumors have claimed that Apple's iPhone 5 is coming to Sprint in mid-October.

This topic is certainly the hottest issue in the Apple market to date — as reported by Wall Street Journal, Sprint will be offering the 5th-generation iPhone once it has been released in “mid-October” of this year. Along with AT&T and Verizon, Sprint is said to be the third U.S. carrier to sell the anticipated device.

Sprint was known to be one of the nation’s largest wireless service providers; and now, it also becomes the third carrier to receive the iPhone 5 after Apple launched with Verizon this year and with AT&T in 2007. Well, probably this is a much better way to prevent the company from being overpowered by Verizon and AT&T/T-Mobile’s team-up.
