    Well, I never doubted that this would be the case. But as the time gets closer rumors are all over the place. Here is another one. It seems to come from a reputable source, but a rumor is a rumor, even though this one seems pleasing to not only me, but a lot of there people.

    Read it and decide for yourself.

    Up until the October 2011 launch of Apple’s iPhone 4S, Apple had a pattern of launching their new iPhones during the summer. The original iPhone, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4 all launched in June, while the iPhone 3G launched in July. The fall iPhone 4S launch broke the summer launch pattern, but some are thinking a fall iPhone launch was just a 2011-exclusive event. However, Japanese publication Macotakara reports that according to a “reliable source,” Apple will once again launch their new iPhone in the fall.
    iMore recently reported that this next-generation iPhone, launching in October, would sport LTE connectivity. Apple’s implementation of LTE will debut with the iPad 3 according to multiple reports.
    According to the report, Apple’s sixth-generation iPhone will launch in either September or October 2012. This would form a new pattern for iPhone launch timeframes, something that benefited Apple and its Q1 2012 results. Apple sold a whopping 37 million iPhones in that quarter, a number not only boosted due to the new iPhone sales rush, but also because of the holiday shopping season. The next-generation iPhone has been rumored to sport a completely new form-factor, and sources are pointing to a four inch display and thinner profile.

    Looking at the photographs. I still prefer the iPhone 4 look to the surmised iPhone 5. They got it right with the iPhone 4, less curves and more strong looking. iPhone 3GS and the imminent iPhone 5 look too curved for my liking.

    I prefer the form of the 4/4s. IMO even if they can make it thinner, I would rather they use the extra space to house a larger battery and keep it to the same size.

    The only problem with everyone's Mayan Calendar Theory is that they were an advanced society on the other side of the world and it might have been their 2012 when they bit the big one. And yes 12/21 is correct it is the Winter Solstice, a pagan celebration.
    I for one will wait until iPhone hits and then wait a few months at minimum to see how they hold up, if they go thinner then it may result as the new Androids with too tight quarters, screen shattering is much more common. Apple has a good product rep but you need some cousioning space too. I wish they would add full waterproofing like my dad's new Sonim(sp?) that would be ultimate then!

    I haven't got a problem with the Mayan theory. I was saying "I believe the Mayans" then what they stated meaning it's what they said. Personally I don't believe any of that. Funny how they predict this, and yet their civilisation died off. Never predicted that did they? Or is that what you meant by theirs?

    Anyways. iPhone 5 is that what it will be called or will it be iPhone 4sg + 1

    yeah that what I ment. Their calendar could of been way advanced and 12/21/2012 could of been when they collasped.
    And I agree iPhone 5 will be what it will be what ever they decide to call it. Just hope it's as good as the 4s, this is the best iPhone yet I enjoy the Siri app.
    I have found some retarded pics and comments on iPhone 5 rumors including one saying it will have a slide physical keyboad with a pic of a iPhone 4 in a bluetooth keyboard case lol people goin crazy wantin to know and it could be delayed another year depending on Apple's progress and stocks come October.

    Lol iApple. It gets me every-time. Everyone pushes for the next iPhone and the minute it comes out new threads are made saying, "iPhone 6 any news when that will be out" I have the iPhone 4 which I got a month before the 4s came out. And looking at the two the only difference is Siri which with the broad manchester accent I have I'd never have used it. So on that basis I know Siri is good for most but I'm happy with the 4 I have. If Apple decide to bring the iPhone 5GTI TDI SR out and it is a flip phone I'd be fuming. Flips are so not fashionable and never have been. To me leave the shape size and sturdiness as it is and concentrate on what you're going to call it :p

    Call it a hunch, but I think the iPhone 5 comes out in early July.

    the 4s has Siri and dual antanna works on both GSM and CDMA networks, the price was the same fie the 32GB and both had to be ordered so I took the 4s just cause of the dual antanna Siri can't understand nothin I say I'll ask "search for cheap Macbooks" and Siri will say "Searching for porn" I'll say "Siri your a stupid ididiotic b****" and she says "I am just trying to help" or "I am doing the best I can" lol. I hope Siri 2.0 atleast accepts accents and speech problems but I do enjoy fussing at Siri makes my iPhone seem more alive lol

    No, I mean BOO! (n)

    I would like full subsidy on my next iPhone purchase and I am not so sure I can get that if they are releasing a new phone in July. 12 months later sure, 9 months later not so sure. I don’t want to wait three months either.

    What can I say, I’m spoiled. I want all the perks I can get. Partial subsidy might just have to do as long as it’s a reasonable amount. I want to get the phone when it’s first released as I am accustomed to getting.

    So, I’m hoping for a fall release. If not, I will still get it.
