The Real Release
There have been so many variations of the ‘iPhone 5 release date’ rumors that it’s probably the most fascinating (not to mention most sought after) rumor people have heard since the beginning of the iPhone era. Back in April, a recruiter for Foxconn said they needed extra people to work on the iPhone 5 because it was due to be released in June. By March other Foxconn reps said they still didn’t know when the iPhone 5 event was due but were guessing it might fall in October. Meanwhile, some analysts said the best months to release an iPhone would be September or October. In June there were reports that the next generation iPhone was due on September together with a mini-iPad and a few iPod updates. Come July, some Chinese e-commerce sites were already offering pre-orders for the iPhone 5! (But of course that was another scammer, mock-up scheme.) In July, we heard Apple’s own CEO, Tim Cook say they were planning a “fall product transition” that rang an iPhone 5 bell for most tech analysts and thus made a lot of iPhone owners want to sell iPhone 4 and 4S before fall. By the end of July, Apple news and rumor sites cited September 12 as the most probable iPhone 5 unveiling date while September 21 could be the market release of the said device.
Since last year, financial and tech analysts have insisted that the tech giant could be releasing a sixth-gen iPhone that looks a lot like the iPhone 4 and 4S with a few tweaks here and there. But early this year, we heard a lot of rumors about the big changes the iPhone 5 may bring to the Apple smartphone lineup. For starters, it was repeatedly reported that the next iPhone would have a smaller 19-pin dock as opposed to the current 30-pin dock on all iDevices. A more recent report said the next iPhone would go down to a 9-pin dock. There were also reports of a thinner and taller iPhone 5 screen using a recent display technology with an Apple patent. The said patent features an in-cell touch screen LCD display technology provided by Sharp. In August, CNET also reported that the iPhone 5 would have a bigger and better battery and a smaller SIM card slot.
What really pushes iPhone users to sell used iPhone are the new features the new model has. Such can be said for the iPhone 4S’ success when people lined up in front of Apple stores last October because they wanted to get their hands on the iPhone 4S’ Siri feature. For the sixth generation iPhone, there were reports back in July of a quad-core A6 Apple chip and NFC technology in June. Mid-August reports also showed LTE capabilities for the next iPhone.
Whether Apple fulfilled these iPhone expectations or not, we’re pretty sure that the iPhone addict in you would not pass up the opportunity to sell used iPhone for a spanking new one. Visit www.Cashforiphones.com and find out how to finally get the iPhone 5 by selling your old iPhone!
