News tagged ‘iPhone 5’
When searching for the 'iPhone-5' and 'New-iPod', Apple's search engine brings up results which aren't live yet but clearly show the new product names in the url.
The photos that were posted on HDblog.it (via MacRumors) show the new iPhone's logic board in greater detail than previous leaks.
Beyond the A6, the new photos also show that the Qualcomm chip located opposite the nano-SIM tray from the A6 is indeed the MDM9615M modem, which has long been rumored as the chip to supply LTE compatibility for the iPhone 5.
MacRumors is now hearing that pre-orders may not begin tomorrow following the media event and that they may instead start on Friday morning in a scenario similar to last year's debut. We're hearing that certain portions of Apple's online sales support team are significantly increasing their staffing levels beginning at 6:00 AM Eastern on Friday, with a major surge for the initial shift beginning at that time and a sustained level of high staffing for at least the remainder of the day.
Last year, the iPhone 4S was set to begin pre-orders at 12:01 AM Pacific Time the Friday following the Apple's media event.
So users are given an extra couple of days to get the money together.
it's not even worth leaking to press friend's this close to launch, so: the new iPod5,1 is code name N78AP, and sports a 1136x640 display.
oh wait, another thing worth mentioning: the new iPod touch / N78AP runs on an S5L8942X, NOT an S5L8950X.
MacRumors reader Michael Rou, who managed to obtain both a pre-production iPhone 5 case and a pre-production iPad mini case, posted the comparison photos on Flickr. The cases design is base on the recently leaked images and specifications coming out of Foxconn factories. The cases were produced by one of the case manufacturers ahead of the rumored devices launches. Apple is expected to introduce the new iPhone on September 12th at a special media event. The iPad mini is rumored to be launched in October.

Yesterday Apple finished decorating the front facade of the Yerba Buena center in preparation for the media event set for September 12th. The company is expected to introduce their much rumored next-generation iPhone. But this time the front decoration of the Center seems to show no obvious clues as to Apple’s announcements.
Apple has begun preparing the Yerba Buena Center for its iPhone 5 introduction. The entrance of the Center is wrapped with colorful banners, suggesting that new multicolored iPods will be part of the event. The new banners evoke the imagery the company used to launch new iPods in 2010.
Apple Splitting iPod Touch Lineup Between Current and New Designs, Increasing Color Options for iPod Shuffle and New Nano
Apple will reportedly make at least minor changes to their three current iPod lines. 9to5Mac shares some details on Apple's apparent plans for updated iPods reportedly set to be introduced alongside the iPhone 5 at next Wednesday's media event.
- iPod shuffle: The biggest change perhaps being the availability of eight different colors compared to the five color options on the current model. The current $49 pricing is likely to remain in effect, but it is unclear if the current 2 GB capacity will carry over to the new models.
“Here is the part codes matrix for the new iPhone launch from a source at a well-known U.S. retail chain: N42A-USA -$199, N42B-USA-$199, N42A-USA-$299, N42B-USA-$299, N42A-USA-$399, N42B-USA-$399. A + B signify black and white”.
It is expected that Apple will accompany the iPhone launch with a number of accessories, and pre-orders will reportedly begin “soon after” iPhone 5 introduction.
The latest pictures of the rumored next-generation iPhone published on Thursday by Sonny Dickson offer a look at a mysterious internal component located next to the earpiece. Some analysts suggested that the unknown component could be the NFC chip. But last week, the well-connected Jim Dalrymple of The Loop reported that Apple's next iPhone will not feature NFC technology, sometimes known as radio frequency identification, or RFID.
According to a
“The new update will mean that the 8GB version of the iPhone 4 will be the entry-level iPhone, probably given away free on £20 per month contracts, as the 3GS is currently”.
The Telegraph also notes that iPhone 5 will come in three different capacities, probably the same 64 GB/32 GB/16 GB line seen with the iPhone 4S.
Moving the iPhone 4 into the position that is currently occupied by the iPhone 3GS would allow more carriers to offer a free iPhone, because the iPhone 4 is sold in both CDMA and GSM versions while the iPhone 3GS is only offered in GSM version.
The iPhone 3GS would probably be most missed by customers who want to buy contract-free smartphones. Currently Apple sells contract-free, unlocked iPhone 3GS for $375 in the U.S. and at higher prices in other countries such as $455 in China. If the company elected to continue selling the device along with its three other iPhone models, it would have to cut the price even further.
Repair firm iResQ has posted side-by-side comparison shots of the purported next-generation iPhone and the iPhone 4S. The photo shows that the iPhone 5 is indeed substantially thinner than the iPhone 4S. Apple's move toward thinner body components and a thinner distribution of internal components enabled by the larger surface area due to the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5 have allowed the company to substantially shrink the device's overall thickness.
