The new iPad is well and truly here, so the iRumour mill is now squarely focused on the next iPhone – presumably called the iPhone 5.
We’ve not one but two iPhone 5 rumours for you today. Firstly, it’s said to have a larger display, while a second rumour suggests a variant of the new iPad’s A5X processor.
The larger display stuff comes courtesy of Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, who - as reported by Business Insider - recently spent a bit of time noseying around tech suppliers in China and Taiwan.
White says: “In our view, this will be the most significant iPhone upgrade with a four-inch screen and a new, sleek look that we believe will require a Unibody case.
“Our sense is that some suppliers will begin production of certain components during the month of June, however, this does not necessarily mean the iPhone 5 will launch in June or even July.
“In our view, a August/September launch may make more sense given the iPhone 4S was just launched in October 2011.”
Meanwhile, 9to5mac’s sources say Apple is internally testing an A5X-based prototype, with 1GB RAM. Apple supposedly refers to the prototype as the N96, though we seriously doubt that name will make it to market.
