Mark your calendar for September 12th for an announcement by Apple, and the 21st for the date the new smartphone is expected to be available. However, neither date has been confirmed by Apple at this point.
Is this the new iPhone 5?
The new Passbook app which is a major piece of Apple’s new iOS 6, will allow handling of movie tickets, coupons, and boarding passes, among other items. As more sensitive data is stored within the iPhone, it seems that a higher level of security will be necessary. There is speculation that Apple’s latest version of the device could include fingerprint security.
Various sources claim the iPhone 5 will feature a larger, 4-inch screen. Digitimes quotes the source as saying that Apple is expanding the screen size “to support the tablet PC market as the vendor only has a 9.7-inch iPad in the market.”
Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
