Another day, another fresh stack of iPhone 5 rumors. We’ve parsed through all the hearsay to bring you the crème de la crème in wild-eyed Apple speculation. Let’s take a look.
Spotted in the wild: the iPhone 4S?
Let’s see. The iPhone 4 16GB Black? Check. The iPhone 4 32GB White? Check. The iPhone 4s whit…—WHOA WHOA WHOA!—what is this sorcery?! Where are we, Narnia?!
Engadget got their hands on this alleged screenshot of AT&T’s internal system showing something called the “iPhone 4s White” under a category called “Model Versions.” The iPhone 4S is rumored to be a more affordable version of the popular iPhone 4, with a scaled down 8GB hard drive to lower costs and penetrate emerging markets, at least according to Reuters. Then again, perhaps the “s” is just plural for multiple iPhones.
The iPhone 5 might be getting the iPad 2’s slick processor
MacRumors has photos of either the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4’s new innards, which consist of a new logic board with the same super-fast A5 processor as the iPad 2.
The images were taken from a Chinese microblogging sited called Weibo and are currently making their rounds throughout the blogosphere. Gizmodo points out that if these photos are the real deal, then the higher-capacity battery could also mean that we’ll see improved battery life. (Thumbs up!)
And if that is indeed the next iPhone’s exterior casing, then yes, it’ll probably be available in white right from the launch.
