Aspirations for New iPhone 5: Apple Most Likely To Unveil

Aspirations for New iPhone 5: Apple Most Likely To Unveil

We make no apologies for our many Apple iPhone 5 stories at present as the excitement continues to mount before the Apple “Let’s Talk iPhone” event later today. We wanted to round up events from the last few days and also look at what is most likely to be unveiled by Apple at the big event in Cupertino.

We’ve now written innumerable stories on the iPhone 5 but just a few of our latest posts surround the inventory leak that suggests an iPhone 5 for Sprint, AT&T and Verizon, a look at Apple fanboys/girls, a new leak that speculates on a completely new design for the iPhone 5 with an aluminum unibody, and the demand from Verizon customers in particular. Hit the links for any more on those stories and you may also be interested in our article on world times and live blogs for the event later today.

Probably the most shocking story was one we told earlier today whereby several reputable sources are suggesting an initial Sprint exclusivity for the iPhone 5 with the much-rumored iPhone 4S coming to Verizon and AT&T. Although this would seem highly unlikely we can’t discount it and so we and many others will be waiting to hear more on that presently. So, in the last few hours before the official reveal of the iPhone 5 (or 4S or both), we thought it would be interesting to highlight what is most likely to appear later in California.

Over on International Business Times, David McGee has looked at the best odds on what we might see. Most of us are expecting a larger screen and that seems imminent given the growing trend towards a bigger display. As we mentioned above it also seems likely that the iPhone 5 will have a metal casing to address issues about the lack of sturdiness of the iPhone 4. Following ‘antennagate’ last year a new improved antenna also looks like a good bet and that will please an awful lot of people who have concerns about call quality and dropped calls.

Other good bets according to McGee are new voice controls using the Siri-based “Assistant” and finally it’s suggested that the Internet connection for the iPhone 5 will be up to three times faster. Of course there’s a lot more, that we’ve spoken about previously, that we hope for or expect from the next iPhone and event as a whole but this will give you a good idea of the latest buzz.

We’d be interested to hear your thoughts and aspirations for the next iPhone. Will you be following the event later today? Are you heading out to get your new iPhone 5 the moment it is released? Why not let us know with your comments.
