Last October, many Apple fans were disappointed when Tim Cook announced the iPhone 4S, not the iPhone 5. Rumors had been swirling for months, and very few of them came true. However, last year’s let down hasn’t put a damper on this year’s iPhone rumors.
A recent Huffington Post article shares info from Piper Jaffray employee, Gene Munster:
“…said in an interview on Bloomberg [the iPhone 5] will be ‘the mother of all upgrades.’ That’s right: The next iPhone is literally going to birth out of its headphone jack, from the sheer force of its improvements, every other upgrade to anything ever.
Munster predicts a new form factor for the iPhone, the addition of 4G LTE, and ‘lines around shopping malls’ when it comes out in October.”
The same article points to a rumor that the next iPhone will be made of “liquid metal” instead of glass. Some analysts believe the use of this “amorphous metal alloy” will allow the iPhone 5 to be slimmer than previous models.
As we were last year, we’re sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear about the newest Apple iPhone. We’ll also be prepping for trade-ins of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, as you all trade in order to upgrade!
