Default iPhone 5 ALREADY?!?!?

Co-worker just let me know that iPhone 5 is coming out soon (and another co-worker independently confirmed this, as her fiance works for Apple).

the june release date might be off, but initial spy reports confirm the existence of a device, which will probably use the dual-core iPad2 processor.

isn't this kinda close on the heels of the iPhone 4? if true, there are probably gonna be a lot of new iPhone 4 owners saying "son of a !@!#!#~!!!"

People should know by now that the stuff they buy "new" is already obsolete. I wouldn't be surprised if they're already putting the finishing touches on the iPhone 6 before 5 even comes out.

One day the general public will realize that what they have is good enough......NOT!!

I just learned to appreciate what I've obtained and run em until it goes out, then replace it.

I purchased my iPad 1st gen last year, and the release of the iPad 2 didn't faze me any, even with the camera and all. I have what I have and I use it everyday for school and work. My iPhone came from my cousin, who is one of those "must have current" geeks, and I just might get his i4 if the i5 rumors prove true.

Even with all my "Mac-mania" since moving back to Honolulu, I still use my Acer Aspire netbook as my main computer. Tiny but (so far) reliable.

ayup.

i don't bother keeping up with the newest and latest stuff anymore, since i can't afford it anyway.

3GS is still going strong (knock on wood) but the display on the 4G is so nice, i'd imagine the 5g will be even better... nice to watch videos on while i'm waiting around at the doctors or whatever.

Lol it's the way apple works. They know that they've got their fans brainwashed. I bet if 2 weeks after i4 came out they dropped the i5 they'd still sell millions of both. Apple has worked hard to keep their customers hyped up about the next big thing. I bet in the next 6-9 months the ipad 3 will be out.

Sad but I bet she'd do it again and buy one anyway.

Apple's plan seems to be release upgrades every year. They've come out with a new iPhone every summer since the first one. The 4 debuted last year, so it's only normal the 5 would be out in a few months. The first iPad deubuted a year ago, and the second one was just released. I'm sure in 11 months, an iPad 3 will hit their stores.

most likely - each new iteration will probably be evolutionary, rather than revolutionary so people will keep buying them as they keep chasing the newest and niftiest things.

incremental changes are probably what keeps the early adopters coming back for more.

yeah...agreed...they release the next version each year. I am debating on the ipad 2. Although all my friends who do own ipads...they eventually leave it at home and stop using them after a while...they become glorified picture frames.

You just cant beat the utility of a laptop and its mundane..yet efficient keyboard and mouse.

thats technology if it wasnt for new products companies would go out of business

Apple is smart they build a great product and always adding to it to a point where nothing much can be added and a totally new generation of phones will have to be thought of..


june is probably the est date

only thing i see apple doing is fixing the attenna issue and making it a little smaller faster

iphone 4 is the greatest phone next to the original iphone

i think the spy reports also mentioned a larger screen- just about edge-to-edge, and moving some of the buttons to the frame. the material of the case is supposed to help resolve the antenna death grip issue, and it should be similar in size/shape to iP4.

supposedly, "evaluation models" have turned up in China somehow...

hate to admit it, but i'm kinda getting curious/interested with all this hype.

i'm about the last person i ever thought would get any sort of apple product, but i'm loving the iPhone, and my wife will not even let me touch her iPhone 4 and mac notebook (screen is soooooo pretty).

of course, i know what will happen... i'll get the iP5, wife will try it, keep it, and give me her iP4 (probably just gonna switch cards, if that's possible).

Here's how I see it. We're used to the 1 year separation between generations. They'll slowly start releasing things 1 week earlier. So say iP1 released, 52 weeks later iP2, 51 weeks later iP3, 50 weeks later iP4, 49 weeks later iP5, 48 weeks later iP6...etc. They'll start doing this over time because we, as consumerist, won't notice the difference between 52 weeks and 51 weeks and 51 and 50 weeks. Eventually we'll just get used to it so they can release new hardware every 3 months and it'll just be "natural" for us to buy brand new $500 iPhones every 3 months.

Ok this won't really happen but seriously apple can release iPhone 5 and then 1 month later iPhone 6 and they'll sill millions of both, easily. Apple products become like crack and the apple community really is like a cult. I've seen so many people just blindly follow/buy whatever apple drops just because it's got an apple on it.

Sheep says what?

Looks like everyone was wrong with the predictions. Looks like the line of upgrades on the iphone is 3G to 3GS to 4 to 4S. Next should be the redesigned 5.

yeah- more evolutionary than the revolutionary everyone was expecting and getting hyped up about.

iOS5 is actually quite good, though. made my 4 run pretty well, and definitely sped up my old 3GS. it plays games and runs apps well enough that my son liberated it from me (doesn't work as a phone, but can wi-fi and function as an iPod touch) when i got my refurbed 4.

i think with my 4 running well (knock on wood) as long as it keeps chugging along, i don't really feel the need to upgrade. hardly use it for anything other than email, browing the web, and playing games.

idk how true this is but a couple of friends have told me that steve jobs didn't really have much to do with the 4s and that the 5 was jobs final project.

i'm a droid fan and even i was thinking about getting the 5 or the droid prime a.k.a nexus prime
