The iPhone 5 is only weeks away. (BFD, right?) Slimmer, faster, with a larger screen, Apple's iPhone 5 is going to sell millions. But that's not what you really need. What you really need from your iPhone is something that'll do your food photos justice. You need this special iPhone 5.
It's been widely reported by a variety of reliable sources that Apple will announce the new iPhone 5 on September 12, and it will go on sale eight days later. As much as we can know for sure sans Apple's official imprimatur, the new iPhone will connect via 4G LTE and feature a 4-inch screen. These are the headline upgrades; there are more, which I'll get to after the jump. As per usual, I'll be on the physical line at an Apple store or pre-order an iPhone 5 to be delivered to my door so I can pass judgment in print as quickly as possible — and pass my 4S to my anxious wife. But strangely I am not tingling with geek excitement as I have with past major iPhone upgrades (which is a place, sadly, I've been before).
Following the report of Steve Jobs' house getting burglarized is news that the late Apple CEO's iPad ended up in the hands of a local clown. And what did the clown use it for? Apparently, he used it as a giant iPod to entertain Bay Area children and tourists. Go figure.
With the looming iPhone 5 and smaller iPad on the way, all is quiet on the Siri-powered Apple HDTV/iTV rumor front. Two new reports indicate that the little "hobby box" aka Apple TV will stick around, but get upgraded with set-top box capabilities in the form of live TV and "other content."
Police in Santa Clara county California have confirmed that a man has been arrested following a July robbery at the home of the late Steve Jobs, and that over $70,000 worth of computers and other goods were taken.
All eyes might be on the new iPhone rumored to launch next month, but another device is starting to look like a lock: the 7.85-inch iPad, or iPad "Mini" or iPad "Air" as the media is now calling it. It's getting harder to deny that a smaller iPad is in the works.
Are you eagerly awaiting the next iPhone? Thinner, faster and with a bigger screen, the next iPhone is going to sell millions. But collectors won't be interested in that for long when there's a brand new and unopened first-gen iPhone going for $10,000. Screw 4G LTE, this one's got 2G!
The next iPhone's launch is so close that we practically know everything there is to know before Apple's even announced it (assuming the rumors and leaks are all true). One thing you probably didn't know was that the next iPhone will be super thin.
Along with the next iPhone, iOS 6 is going to be a major update for Apple users. With the dumping of Google for its Maps app, Apple's poised to shed another of its rival's biggest services: YouTube.
iPhone fans won't have much longer to wait. With the last leak of parts all but confirming the next iPhone's larger screen and slimmer profile, all ears are now hearing that Apple will announce the smartphone in early September with a launch shortly after.
