  • 6 iPhone 5 Rumors

    1. Edge-to-edge screen

    Rumors of the bigger iPhone 5 screen happen to be flying for several weeks, beginning with a supposed leaked image from the Chinese apple iphone parts supplier showing a 4-inch screen (as opposed to the apple iphone 4′s 3.5-inch display), then an alleged leaked engineering image from iDealsChina showing an apple iphone 5 by having an edge-to-edge screen. The following month, at the begining of May, an “apple iphone 5G” situation turned up on Alibaba.com, also showing an edge-to-edge screen.

    2.  Programmable Mini micro-SIM card

    Apple prepared a proposal for the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), since the firm looks to incorporate a completely new type of smaller sized SIM into its forthcoming apple apple iphone.

    3. iPhone 5 with Mobile payment technology

    There are many rumors around the internet that Apple is going to introduce a mobile payment system with iPhone 5. It is highly questionable that Apple would take a risk with highly debatable technology. Generally Apple always go with well established technology. However, Boy Genius Report reported that Apple Stores were being installed with particularly-wired tables that may support NFC.

    4. Completely new  iPhone 5  design

    The rendering shows a teardrop-shaped profile, expanded home button (to support future gesturing features), a thinner chassis, 3.7-inch display, and cable-free charging. This may contradict with iPhone 5 4 inch screen.

    5. Relocated camera flash

    Apple.pro has published photos evaluating areas of the apple iphone 5 camera components alongside the Apple iphone 4 camera components.

    6. 8-mega pixel camera

    In April, Sony CEO Howard Stringer made passing comment about making the best cameras for Apple that immediately sparked a rumor that Sony was manufacturing an 8-mega pixel camera.


     
  • Your Iphone 5 with smaller and smart SIM Card

    Apple prepared a proposal towards the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), because the firm looks to include a brand new kind of more compact SIM into its forthcoming apple iphone.

    According to Jeremy Green, practice leader at Ovum’s telco Strategy team new SIM card would change the way we use the mobile phone.

    “New SIM card will not be smaller but highly likely to be reconfigurable, which will give Apple increased control over user activity.Apple may be able to update the device’s International Mobile Subscriber Identity number, issue updates and even allow customers to change networks over the air without requiring them to replace their SIM.”

    Apple is looking forward to get ride of the SIM card tray, so there won’t be any removable parts from future iPhones. However, it all depends on whether mobile phone careers like the new

    software base SIM card.

    “The SIM card is the only piece of hardware that carriers can claim in mobile devices. Operators deem the physical SIM cards safer than their software counterparts, which present a target for hackers.”

    What you think of the Apple new idea of the software base micro SIM cards. Is it a positive move or not?
