iPhone 5 and Other Apple Gear Rumoured for January: Update
So now that you’ve just shelled out a bundle of bucks for your shiny new iPhone 4, just how long would you be willing to wait before shelling out another large bundle of bucks for the fifth generation iPhone? Usually Apple gives iPhone users a year to save up the cash, but this may have changed.
Will Park of Intomobile has posted an article by way of iLounge, which speaks of rumoured new Apple products for early 2011, and includes a new mini iPad, new iPods, and new bumper cases and yes even the iPhone 5.
We have to say this is all firmly in the rumour field so should definitely be take with a large dose of disbelief until such times as anything official appears, as rumour has it Apple is already at work on the iPhone 5 and looking to push out the device in January 2011. The reason for the early launch is apparently to deal with the iPhone 4 antenna issue which Apple PR is taking a large amount of flak over.
As for that mini iPad, well apparently it’ll be a seven inch version which apparently has been around since the first iPhone, but other than that no other details. The new Bumper case rumour is that Apple is working on a cheaper, all silicone version so they can continue to offer it for free.
So if said rumour turns out to be true, although you have already dropped a bundle of bucks in Apple’s lap for your iPhone 4 will you be waiting in line to drop yet another wad of dosh for the iPhone 5 so soon after?
