It is less. If even the iPhone 4 summer equivalent of Apple's new smartphone, since last year with the 4S this release is aimed more at the beginning of autumn. Already presented in the months before the new iPhone and the renewal of the Apple notebook range, it is now that the blogosphere and social networks become a buzz with rumors about the next generation iPhone. In this post we will list the most common and the most viable.
In 2007, the epic of the first iPhone keynote was in January, although he eventually jumping into the market in June. In June was when they showed up the next three generations: 3G, 3G, and 4. The fifth, the iPhone 4S, was delayed until October 4 last year, just one day before the death of Steve Jobs. For the new iPhone, rumors point to a specific date: the 12 September . Thus, we morderíamos both nails and 2011, when the dates were identified as probable going on without having any trace of a keynote. Hopefully this year Apple will not let us waiting so long.
In the blogosphere in general and the former as we can see in the title, we often refer to this sixth-generation iPhone and iPhone 5, basically to show that we talk about next. However, this name is unlikely, since the fifth iPhone is the 4S. In addition, it would make little sense to call 'iPhone 5' without IOS releases iPhone to 6. Above all, we have the precedent of the iPad.
When it introduced the third generation did not make any reference to any transfer to their name, being the successor to the iPad 2. All expected to see a trail of 'iPad 3' or 'iPad HD' (the names were more ballots', until we realize that we with this absence were equating its nomenclature to that of the MacBook Air, iMac, Apple TV, etc. The name of the product, without additives, impassively watching the new generations. Will they do the same with the iPhone? Personally, I think so. And I'd like.
If we were to choose a smartphone flagship 'of the major brands, we could get the Samsung Galaxy S III display (4.8 "), HTC X One (4.7"), the Sony Xperia S (4.3 ") ... and iPhone 4S (3.5"). This difference starts to become viable, and very few would forgive that in the second half of 2012 Apple continue locked in that size.
However, it seems that after the failed rumors a year ago, now I will present an iPhone with a larger screen of 3.9 to 4 inches. The proportion not be the same as the current (3:2), but would become 16:9, because the width would be equal, but the height increase considerably, as evidenced by the scalability found in IOS 6 . In this new screen would win another row of icons, but could perhaps be used to more efficient uses, and can add at least one widget to the springboard, the formula has been so successful in Android.
3GS iPhone appearance was virtually identical to the 3G, like that of 4S was of that of 4. All indications are that for the third time we will see a major redesign on the iPhone, starting with the screen but going much further.
The prototypes filtered through components indicate a unibody design iPhone, which would explain the three parts of the large rear-central and two smaller end. It may sound confusing, but here is very interesting to browse the opinion of the industrial designer Don Lehman. His theory is that the metal centerpiece would unite the sides of the iPhone with the back, because since the launch of the iPhone 4S (4 with connection and CDMA) metal side bands do not have antenna functions. Thus, only the two upper and lower bands U-shaped function as antennas, which enables this explains unibody design and the design of the rear panel. In addition, this new metallic look dismisses the back window of the 4 and 4S, which despite their prominence and elegance was too prone to breakage by accidental drops or bumps.
Logically, a redesign in this area means less thick, and the margin is Apple with its predecessor, 4S, is large: 9.6 mm. The main competitors are significantly lower with the 8.6 mm. Galaxy S III or 7.8 mm. One of the S (although the picture is an X). Rumors indicate that the new iPhone will be 7.6 mm. thick. If met, would be setting the bar pretty high, but will have to wait for its release for compliance. However, not everything is slim smartphone, but do it properly to not broadcast constantly feeling of fragility.
Rumors about the new screens that Sharp and LG are Apple would provide a bit more viable this point, since that would integrate the tactile sensors inside the LCD. Furthermore, the above paragraph relates to this, since the thin unibody design allowed several Apple devices above and make them stronger and lighter.
This is another logical moves in a smartphone that is renewed annually. The third generation iPhone loaded A5X, although the pre-launch rumors believed equip A6 processor. Next iPhone has all the numbers to equip the same A5X, following the trail of the two previous iPhone that caught the iPad already submitted your processor. Also emerge the opportunity to meet with one again, (what A6?).
One of my favorite spots, and I'd love Apple to implement to help expand this technology, as I already mentioned a few weeks ago, so I will not expand too much here. An NFC chip in the next iPhone, along with other Android handsets that have already built, it's like to cry to banks and mobile payment platforms that will expand this technology. However, as mentioned in the entry linked above, Apple patents indicate that the NFC has many plans that go beyond the payments.
Two years after the iPhone 4 was the first to require a MicroSIM, Apple switches back to standard to get a little more space on your smartphone. Almost certainly see the Nanosim on the new iPhone, measuring even smaller.
It premiered at the iPad, 2012, which allows Internet download speeds by rolling up 20 Mb / s. While in Europe this leave us, for now, indifferent, Americans themselves will notice this and much improvement in speed. The new iPhone has to incorporate all the numbers, starting with the pressure of competition. Doing so would (or would the Americans, rather) a connection as fast or with information on the iPhone than at home with ADSL.
The quality achieved with optics 4S should continue to improve to finish settling, if not already done so, as a complete replacement of compact cameras. Perhaps a more powerful flash (or duplicated, but not be in the prototypes that run the network) would improve shooting night, both the luminosity as noise reduction. Although the eight current and are less important than his view, could reach ten or twelve megapixels.
The camera should be greatly improved is the front, which is still VGA. What seems clear in light of the prototypes is to change its location lateral to be located in the center, over the phone. A change similar to that of the Mac's iSight camera (now FaceTime) when he went from VGA to 1 Megapixel. As an extra point, it seems definite that Apple, for now, has no interest in 3D.
Endure the above until now, especially the 4G network usage, or a larger screen, makes it necessary an increase in battery capacity for at least equate the duration of the light so far. The screen size increases consumption, yes, but also enlarges the phone, which makes space for the battery is greater. Separately, technical improvements (as seen in the iPad, which increased the mAh twice in virtually the same space) would also increase the lifespan. In other words, efforts in the energy field of these devices are intended to maintain the current length despite the inclusion of news, rather than increase it. Patents for the even utopian battery two weeks remain unnoticed in the market.
The ubiquitous 30-pin Apple connector has, according to rumors , date of death foretold. They point to a much smaller dock, different versions bet by one of 8, 9 or 16 pins. This change would create a problem of backwards compatibility with many accessories (chargers, adapters, sound stations, bases load ...). There is speculation the distribution of adapters for Apple, but for physical reasons would not be compatible with any accessories.
The headphone jack has moved. If during the five previous models has been on the left side of the top, now it'll be at the bottom, always according to rumors and rumored prototypes. One of the minor changes but you'll notice in our day to day once we have it, who will have. Owners of an iPod Touch will not need too familiar with this change, yours is the jack also in the lower band but on the other end.
It sounds trite and talk about a future iPhone as a bestseller, but due to the above, and the buzz created around it, it seems that this time will change the trend. Some analysts have noted that on average each iPhone outsells all the above together, and believe they could get the sixth model , for which it would take about 170 million units sold. A real barbarism in a context of global economic recession.
However, in the case of Spain could have an advantage. Two years ago began selling the iPhone 4, the first that was available with the three major operators (Movistar, Vodafone and Orange) and not just the first. It has been twenty four months, exactly the same commitment to stay in many cases calling . This means it is now when customers can go to another to try to get the new iPhone in conditions similar to those of 2010. And known the brand loyalty that gets the iPhone, would not be surprising to see a spike in sales since September.
