iPhone 5 FAQ

When is the iPhone 5 coming out?

According to multiple sources and the dates of previous iPhone releases, the iPhone 5 is set to be released in July 2011.

Update: Many analysts are now pointing at a later-than-usual iPhone 5 release, with most pointing at a late September/early October 2011 release.

Are there any real images of it out there?

There are no reported authentic images of the iPhone 5 as of yet, but the closest thing we have are some blueprint sketches published in early January. There’s almost nothing more to decipher from these sketches than the fact that the iPhone 5 will be slimmer than previous models. You can see them here

What new features will the iPhone 5 include?

Currently there are many speculated features that the iPhone 5 may include, but many of these are solely based on rumours and patents that Apple has applied for. A few of these include an NFC-chip that would enable paying for things with the actual iPhone 5 itself. Apple has not come out and confirmed any of these, but there is a strong likeliness that many of the speculated features will be featured in the iPhone 5.

Update: Currently, the most legitimate rumours point at the iPhone 5 definitely having a much better camera, increased storage capacity and being released with new iOS 5

Didn’t one just come out last year/Is it worth buying?

Surprisingly, we’ve been getting this question a lot from our readers and we feel as though it completely depends on the person. There are plenty of great smartphones that are coming out in the next year, but we’re mostly excited about the iPhone 5. Why? Because with every new iPhone in the past, Apple has completely redefined and changed the smartphone market and we believe that the iPhone 5 will be no exception to that.
