Radically Redesigned iPhone 5 Coming in August?

Radically Redesigned iPhone 5 Coming in August?

Posted June 21, 2011 at 11:54am by iClarified · 29045 views
BGR is reporting that Apple will release a radically redesigned iPhone in August.

The site has confirmed that Apple is indeed giving some developers access to a device known as the iPhone 4S. This device has upgraded internals; however, their source says the next generation iPhone to be publicly released will not only have upgraded internals, it will also have a radically new case design.

BGR notes that while generally consensus has Apple releasing a new iPhone around September, their source says Apple may hold an event in early August to announce the new device and release it during the last week of August.

It's unclear what changes Apple has made to the design of the phone; however, TNW previously predicted a teardrop design.

Just to make things a bit more clear, BGR's source says the device 'known as the iPhone 4S' is real. However, this is not the device that is being released. Rather, a completely redesigned iPhone 5 is being released.

The important question that needs to be asked is, "Will this new phone be 4G capable?" If not, I don't care what they call it or what they have, it will not be worth an upgrade, IMO

The 3G network currently does not have a great structure what makes you think the 4G network is any better. Don't be fooled by 4G talk it's all BS

omg....you're all idiots....it's saying that apple is providing developers with the next iphone model that looks the same as an iphone 4 with upgraded hardware. probably to prevent a design leak from happening like what happened with the iphone 4. but when the next iphone model is actually released to the public, it will have a new designed look as well as upgraded internal hardware. hard to believe and seems kinda stupid to me but thats what theyre saying. its not that hard to understand.

It's not complicated. You are the moron who can't even read. The article says that Apple is secretly providing developers with the iPhone 4S to test their apps with the new internal hardware; however, Apple is planning to publicly release an iPhone 5 with both a new design and new internals.

Are you implying that there will be two phones released this year because thats retarded. So Apple is indeed giving developers access to a device known as the iPhone 4S.. there is a possible 'event in early August to announce the new device' (iPhone 4s). So where does the "Radically Redesigned iPhone 5 Coming in August" come from? The post specifically says "device has upgraded internals" (iPhone 4s), which comes out in August... BUT the post again says iPhone 5 in August. WTF

Chill. It's just some poor journalism. When they say iPhone 5 and iPhone 4s they're referring to the same phone, they just don't know what Apple will call it yet.
Frank - June 21, 2011 at 3:41pm
omg! you are dense. the device being referred to as the iPhone 4S is not being released publicly by apple. it is for developers only! your quote is completely taken out of context. the post says "this device has upgraded internals" in reference to the iPhone 4S. nowhere does it say the iPhone 4S is coming out in august. please before you comment again, read the article slowly, maybe take it to your english teacher for help!

@TH, they are not referring to the same device. the iPhone 4S is in reference to the developer only phone that is floating around.

i believe that there is two release dates, one in august for the ip4s and one in september for the ip5. thats what i gather from all other posts i have read.

iPhone 6 will be released end of next year with updated Steve internal organs.

My prediction (based in pure logic) is iPhone 4S with preinstalled iOS5 this year. iPhone 5 next year.

What about iOS 5 launching in the fall then?
NeHoMaR - June 21, 2011 at 12:38pm
This sound weird. How could they release iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 at the same time? no sense.
