Can you believe it’s been almost two weeks since our last “next iPhone” story? Jeez Louise. Well, if – like us – you’ve been suffering from withdrawal symptoms, you’ll be glad to hear the rumour mill has been hard at work over the weekend.
First up we’ve got a “previously accurate Apple source” telling 9to5mac that “the current plan is for a September launch for the next-generation iPhone.” Yep, that seems to be the general consensus, anonymous source.
More interestingly, the guy claims that high level Apple and network execs are walking around with the near-finished next iPhone, currently in the final stages of testing.
There’s slightly more concrete information courtesy of the iOS 5 SDK. It points to a 5MP camera. That’s a little lower than the expected 8MP, though there’s speculation that the SDK might be out of date. Maybe.
Further snooping around in the SDK suggests that iOS 5 devices will support recording, playback and exporting of 1080p video. That lends credence to the idea of an 8MP shooter.
5MP? 8MP? Who the hell knows? All eyes on September.
