Following the report of the company’s plans for the new models Apple iPhone and iPad , after some time in the pages of iLounge published a new article with more information about the future of “Apple” devices.
Like last time, the information was obtained from a “reliable source”, who shared the code names and other features of the upcoming devices Apple. The previous report stated that the iPad 5 will debut in October and he will undergo significant external changes, including changing its size.
Those familiar with Apple rumors cycle, know that we are now in the phase 3 (wild predictions). Stage 1 (innocent talk) and phase 2 (the first 3D-models) come through unscathed. As a rather implausible‘iPhone Math’ with 4.8-inch screen that is schedule to be relraed in June on the market.This time, iLounge came up with a series of rumors, which they include an iPhone 5S with improved 13-megapixel. They were for example the first who reported that the iPhone 5 would get a tall housing. The website has many contacts with accessory makers and suppliers in Asia.
Jeremy Horowitz of iLounge has the following Apple products list for 2013 compiled based on information from various sources:
- iPhone 5S (N51), which in July on the market and possibly has a 13-megapixel camera.Earlier it was already discussed a 12-megapixel camera.
- Cheaper iPhone for China, with plastic housing. This has been discussed several times but it would now be a device with China Mobile is developed and perhaps never in the Western countries will be available.
- A larger iPhone, which is under development but maybe not on the market.
- iPad 5 (J72), available around October and with a thinner and lighter casing. The appearance would resemble an elongated iPad Mini, but where the screen edges are almost completely gone.
- iPad mini 2 (J85), available around October. Same appearance but perhaps with a retina display.
The iPhone 5S looks very approximately the same as the iPhone 5, but with a larger flash on the back. What concerns me in the cheaper iPhone, Apple would focus on the 700 million customers of China Mobile. The sales of the iPhone 5 in China takes off again because of the high price. A budget-iPhone could help Apple in China on the chart. Apple gave during the recent discussion of quarterly figures show that China is now the most important country, after the U.S..The region around China will become an independent region are discussed in the quarterly figures. It would be the cheaper iPhone go to a device with plastic housing, which considerably cheaper than the $849 that the Chinese are the cheapest iPhone should count down. With an average annual salary of $3,000 per person is the iPhone 5 thereby simply too expensive.
iLounge also discusses rumors about the iPhone Math. This would be a source of a mistranslation iPhone + be. Well outdated iLounge that the new model is that in the early stages of prototyping is. This unit would be a 4.7-inch screen, but that could still change. Possibly the appliance on the market, if Apple decides that it is not good enough.
As for the iPad 5, now known by its model code-named J72, but there is one device that passes under the codename J85, which, actually, is the prototype of the next-generation iPad Mini .
The report notes that the second generation iPad Mini will be available until October of this year, which is approximately the same time as the next full size iPad. iLounge sources have little information about this device, but it is thought likely that the new iPad Mini will keep the same form factor and will display Retina , which practically does not increase the physical size of the device.
In conclusion, let us recall that previously appeared on the network information according to which Apple might announce their new iPad Mini and iPhone this spring, but according to the iLounge report, this is not something that particularly count.
