    Default What else do we know about the iphone 5?

    It will be released in 2012, and will release simultaneously on Verizon/Att. Anything else?

    Oh, ok. I thought I read that it would be next year. Did they announce 2011 at wwdc for the release of the iphone 5?

    Here we go, another rumor mill! All these speculations! I think it makes perfect sense to release it in fall when iOS 5 is released! Have no way of knowing that for sure. Either way I'm sure it'll be awesome and I'll definitely be getting one when it releases!

    Sorry to all you iPad 2 owners, but I actually hope they release a new iPad in fall, too. Then they can have just one, streamlined iOS event every fall. All the iPods, the iPhone, and the iPad. The rest of the year they can use for their other stuff.

    That way the hardware for the iPad and iPhone will be more similar.

    Spacing it out increases sales. If the iPhone and the iPad came out simultaneously people would probably buy one or the other. Space them out and release one at a time and impulsive buying takes place. it's how I ended up with an iPad. Lol

    What do we know about the iPhone 5? That it will have iOS 5. Everything else is just a guess at this point.

    Sure you do. A company like Apple doesn't put all that work into iOS 5 and not use it to promote new hardware. This isn't rocket science.

    The only question is if it'll be a redesign or an iphone 4S like update.

    I agree with boomhower we know for sureabsoulute sure that its coming out and it will have an 8MP back camera says the sony probablyit will have IOS 5 it will only be 3g-3gs upgrade with a tweaked attenna a better camera and a slight design improvment but (like the 3g-3gs) will have the big upgrades on the inside with an A5 chip and hardware upgrade to cope with IOS 5 basically like the ipad 2 will have small changes that make a big difference to user experience faster stronger etc.

    I agree with this statement. I believe it's a refresh of the 4 and a redesign will be next year.

    We don't KNOW that it will have an 8MP camera - that's just a rumor... and ther are conflicting reports that it will have the same 5MP rear-facing camera as the iPhone4 currently has.

    All we know with 100% certainty is that it won't be out in June. Everything else is just rumor and/or speculation.

    I hope we get and iPad 3 and iPhone 5 in sept (or earlier)

    Also I hope they decide to go with the super a6 chip to stay ahead of the curve.

    I hope there will be a redesign unlike update like iphone 4S. The reason is people are expecting few changes in hardware also, So Apple will make an upgrade to the current device I guess.

    These kinds of threads are moot and useless because nobody KNOWS anything about the phone because nothing has been officially announced concerning it yet...the little trickle of details that have come out have all been speculative at best. Apple will announce the new phone, and we'll get a slew of information about the up coming iPhone 4 replacement...and then we can start talking about what we "know".

    Until then, we might as well throw darts at a board covered with things we HOPE are on it and name them, because that activity would present just as much legitimacy as these threads do at this point in the game.

    Aint it funny? I said the same thing 3 weeks ago. Nothing known, except no June release. But somehow people "know" all about it...

    I understand the entertainment value of what is essentially discussing it as a sort of "wish list" type deal, like when people discuss what they would do with a million bucks or whatever the scenario...but it's getting a little silly seeing the threads popping up asking what is "known", especially since like we said before, Apple hasn't even officially said there IS an iPhone 5, much less given any details about any piece of it.

    You took the words out of my mouth, we don't even know if it will be called an iPhone5. I'm sure there will be a redesign....or not....there will be more storage...128 GB...or not....it will be 4G...or not....it will come out in 2012...or not.... you get the picture, all we know right now is eventually there will be a "next generation iPhone" nd it will be badder *** than the previous one!
