Well, it looks like the long wait for the iPhone 5 is finally coming to an end. According to a new report from the Wall Street Journal’s All Things D blog (a site that knows what it’s talking about when it comes to Apple rumors), in just under two weeks Apple will finally reveal the next iPhone to the world. Yes, October 4th looks to be new iPhone day.
So, beyond the iPhone 5 (which according to the latest rumors is said to have that incredibly thin new design, larger screen and 8 megapixel camera) what else can we expect Apple to show off in two weeks? According to the latest rumors, Apple will also use this big event to release its new iCloud service (which allows you to store all your music, videos, pictures, apps, documents etc. online and access it from any internet-connected device like an iPhone, iPod, iPad or computer), iOS 5 (including iMessage, Apple’s version of BBM), and possibly even a new/upgraded iPod Touch and an upgraded iPhone 4 (rumored to be called the iPhone 4S. This iPhone will look pretty much the same as today’s iPhone 4 but will also be faster, have a plastic design– the current iPhone 4 is made of glass– and be priced much lower than the iPhone 5. Think of this as the new iPhone 3GS which AT&T sells today for just $50 with new 2 year contract and data plan).
As for when the new iPhone 5 will be out, All Things D says we can expect it ”within a few weeks” of the announcement, though when exactly is still unknown (maybe October 15th?).
Now remember– Apple still hasn’t confirmed anything and All Things D also mentions that while October 4th is right now the plan, Apple still may change the date. We’ll of course keep you updated as more info comes out, so stay tuned!
