In less than two weeks, Apple shall announce their new products and the world is impatiently looking forward to that exciting event. The proof of this fact is the number of rumors around iPhone 5 present in the world, the sixth generation Apple smart phone. How true these rumors are will become clear in the middle of Spetember (as supposed).
Tests done in iPhone emulators with iPhone 4S operating system and the new iOS 6 beta under the display resolution of 640x1136 showed that the fifth generation OS, created originally for 640x960 resolution display, had more free space between the icons, placed as originally in iPhone 4S in four rows, while iOS 6 showed 5 rows of icons under the new resolution. This fact makes but think that the OS was created for the 640x1136 resolution, thus proving the rumors about the new screen for iPhone. The display is expected to be as wide as that in iPhone 4S, but a bit longer with the side ratio 9:16.
2. Technology Behind the Screen
They say that the new screen will be created with the In-Cell Touch Display technology. This means that the LCD and touch sections of the display are merged into one. This is beneficial on several basis:
First, the product is thinner as one of the glass layers is 'cut out';
Second, this simplifies the manufacturing process, requiring less investments, thus, leading to savings in cost;
Third, the picture will be brighter and sharper, again thanks to less layers used in screen creation.
3. A Tiny Phone Friend
Still rumors continue to dwell upon the new SIM standard – nano SIM (even smaller than micro). If Apple do this change in the new iPhone we, customers, will face a new problem – we will have to change our SIMS: the new standard is thinner and has a smaller contact pad.
4. Other Rumors
The things described above are not the only features spoken about. The new iPhone is expected to have a new cable jack, a unibody with several non-metal elements and some more new details.
The freshest rumors say that the new device might have no number in its name, being as simple as 'The New iPhone'. This looks like a new naming strategy, remember 'the new iPad' and 'the new MacBook' product titles, when numbered ones were awaited. Moreover, a photo appeared on the Internet, supposingly taken on one of the Asian firms, featuring a printed maquet of the boxes for the new iPhone, where we find no numbers in the gadget's title.
We, consumers, who won't know anything for sure till Apple make an official announce of the product, can only wait and make guesses about what to expect. Hopefully, September will clear the things out, dispelling the mist around the new sixth generation iPhone 5.
