A number one analyst expects Apple's subsequent iPhone may not be offered unless October. Gene Munster, research analyst at investment bank Piper Jaffray, bases his expectation on the future availability of a new type of communications chip from Qualcomm. This enables faster wireless smartphones communicate using 4G networks. Munster expects Apple chips from Qualcomm for LTE (Long Term Evolution) networks in the future iPhone.
The problem is that chip Qualcomm is so popular the company did not produce enough to meet the demand. According to Reuters , the demand for LTE chips suitable for 4G networks is expected such that the delivery is delayed. This chip is ideal for the Apple iPhone 5 since these iDevice, after the new iPad , will want to provide 4G . The chip of the sixth generation iPhone will not only speech recognition and GPS function, but also suitable for the new networks.
An improvement in yield rates of the in-cell touch panels at Sharp and TMD has persuaded Apple to choose to cooperate with Japan-based panel makers, the sources noted.
The adoption of the in-cell touch panels, if realized, will also have a significant impact on the operations of Apple's current touch panel suppliers TPK Holdings and Wintek, which are specialized in the production of glass on glass touch solutions currently, said the sources.
In addition to supporting LTE iPhone 5 will also have a completely new look, so anonymous sources reported earlier this week. Apple should provide this information using a new type of metal shell of the same atomic structure as a liquid. As usual, Apple itself says nothing at all about his plans for a new version of its smartphone, usually in the rumor mill as "iPhone 5" is highlighted. The first generations of the iPhone in June were always in the market, but with the Apple iPhone 4S week of that schedule off: it was in October 2011.
