Two things are almost certain this year. Firstly, the iPad 3 will arrive around March/April (if history is anything to go by), and since the previous two iPads have the same resolution, this new guy will melt your eyes with a near-Retina display. Probably.
Secondly, given that the iPhone 4 and 4S are pretty much twins, the iPhone 5 will be significantly different. And that’s exactly the hymn BGR is singing, brother.
BGR says it has been speaking with a “close source” about the "next-generation iPhone". It’s probably safe to start calling it the iPhone 5, right? As much as I’d love to see a 3.5in 8MP iPhone 4S+.
The source reveals that the iPhone 5 will adopt a rubbery plasticy material similar to Apple’s bumper cases, joining the glass front with the aluminum – or aluminium, if you prefer – rear.
Furthermore, the antenna will surround the iPhone 5, allowing for unbridled aluminium action on the back.
Finally, the iPhone 5 will follow the iPhone 4S’ lead by landing in autumn. That’d make iOS 6 the star of WWDC, I guess.
Only another – what? – nine months of iPhone 5 rumours to go then. Excellent.
