iPhone 5 Display Rumors Are Still Around; iPad 3 Rumors Rev Up
Guess what? Those rumors about the iPhone 5 having a 4-inch display: they’re still around, despite the surprise of the iPhone 4S. And with that latest advance unveiled, attention is turning to Apple’s next generation iPad.
Last summer and fall, the internet buzzed practically by the minute with new scoops about the expected iPhone 5. Photos purported to show leaked blueprints, cases, and even prototypes for the iPhone 5, featuring a thinner, wider, tapered frame and a larger display screen; other rumors included a metallic casing in some instances, massive amounts of memory, and cloud-based computing. Only a few even suggested the voice-activated personal assistant that would prove to be the major enhancement of the iPhone 4S.
So when all of these “leaks” and “inside sources” turned out to be wrong, the internet did tone things down for a while. But Apple has to introduce a new iPhone eventually, so the rumor mill is starting up again, and it’s producing some familiar themes.
CNET reports, once again, that the iPhone 5 will have a 4-inch display. iPhones currently feature a 3.5-inch screen. According to a Japanese website, manufacturers have already shipped the LCD screens to Apple.
The sources also report that the next iPad will be “changed fundamentally,” fueling rumors that the tablet will also be thinner with a better display and improved battery life. (Sound familiar?) Forbes reports on an investor note that says Apple has purchased high-end equipment from Sharp.
What do you think? Are you hesitant to get your hopes up again?
