New iPhone Design Still Not Finalized, October Release?

Posted May 11, 2012 at 10:09pm by iClarified
Apple has yet to finalize the design of the next generation iPhone, according to a new report from iMore.

Despite some rumors to the contrary, according to our sources Apple still hasn't finalized the design of the next generation iPhone 5 (or whatever Apple ends up calling iPhone 5,1). No giant screen. No 16:9 aspect ratio. No metal back.
Currently, the new, smaller dock connector is being implemented, but no changes to screen size or aspect ratio have been decided on. And yes, it still has a Home button.

iMore suggests that if there is a change to the screen size it will be minimal. ie max 4-inch.

This report follows one from yesterday where the site predicted that Apple is targeting October 2012 for the release of a $200-$250 7-inch iPad.

I predict the next iPhone will have a Retina screen, cell phone, 4G, and run iOS 6. Can I get my $1000 payment for hot tips?

Its stupid trying to predict what apple product will look like. No one know except for the designers and the factory workers in china. So sources r just trying to gain readers, they got no connection with apple to know anything ahead of time

The design will definately be something different if they make the screen bigger it won't be huge like most new smartphones

I heard, from a very reputable source, that if you amass every random utterance on the Internet, one of those things will be at least close to correct. That same source told me that the iPhone 5 will be called "something", look like "a phone", and will be released "someday". Mark your calendars.
