iPhone 5 Later This Year? Doubtful
With the Apple iPhone 4 press conference held on Friday, Apple chief Steve Jobs spoke on several things mainly to do with the iPhone 4 antenna issue dubbed “antennagate,” along with when we can expect the white iPhone 4 to surface.
Well according to Andrew over on Fonehome, Steve Jobs also “dropped a few hints that suggest a new iteration of the iPhone 4 may arrive in October — most likely along with a fix for the current iPhone 4’s signal problem.”
Jobs, during a questions and answers round apparently said, “We will re-examine this in September and decide whether to keep going, or maybe we will have a better idea.” Something Andrews seems to have taken as meaning a refreshed iPhone may be coming in October possibly the iPhone 5.
Personally I can’t see Apple solving the antenna issue permanently by the end of September, but then it also doesn’t mean Apple will push out a new iPhone. No doubt Apple techs will be looking hard and long at the antenna design, but I reckon by the time September is over and Apple has pushed out numerous free bumpers they will be hoping all the gripe over the antenna will be forgotten.
