It’s a bad time for Apple as the sales of iPhone 4S are going down in UK. And, if the verdicts of experts are to be believed, it’s a definite indication of the launch of the next generation iPhone.
According to a Financial Times report, iPhone 4S, which is one of the best selling smartphone in the UK, is possibly at its all-time low as the sales of the handset fell from a quarter sold in March to about one fifth of all handsets sold in June.
When news of a new product hits the market, drop in the number of sales for an old product becomes inevitable. Therefore, dropping sales for iPhone 4S is not surprising rather it gives a clear indication that the next generation iPhone is to release anytime soon.

If we ride back in time we see, back in last year the same incident took place when Apple showed its fourth quarter report. The company fell short of expectations of 17.07 million units and the drop reached its peak in the second half of the same quarter as a result of unseemly hype over the new iPhone.
And, the hype over the next iPhone created so much of pent-up demand that soon as the company launched iPhone 4S, which was, by the way, not a new iPhone and rather an updated version of the existing iPhone 4, sales reached to new highs and Apple sold over four million units in the opening weekend. As a result, the Cupertino tech giant showed record quarterly revenue of $46.33 billion and record quarterly net profit of $13.06 billion, or $13.87 per diluted share.
The kind of unremitting hype that the soon-to-be launched iPhone 5 has created, it does not take any expert to assume that, despite its current dismal sales condition, Apple will certainly make a major come-back in terms of sales in first quarter of 2013.
According to various reports and rumors, the purported iPhone 5 will come with groundbreaking features and will easily outdo the 4S, the first Apple smartphone to sport Retina Display and Siri voice dictation features. Apple will undoubtedly make the sixth generation iPhone better in such a way that it wins back what the company is losing in terms of numbers right now. But, how? Check out below:
Bigger sized Android phones have seemingly given a good threat to Apple! Until now no iPhone has had a bigger than 3.5-inch screen, but according to Reuters, Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, Apple is ordering bigger screens from its Asian suppliers.
While Reuters reported about a bigger iPhone with a 4.6-inch display, the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the plans, reported about a 4-inch display. The report further added that Apple is currently working with several screen makers including LG, Sharp and Japan Display Inc. for its next iPhone.
Retina Display and Resolution
iPhone 4S sports a 3.5-inch LED-backlit IPS TFT, capacitive touchscreen with 960 x 640 pixels resolution and 330 ppi pixel density.
iPhone 5, according to 9to5mac, will feature 1,136×640 display. Other reports indicate that the iPhone will feature a Quantum Dot LED curved glass edge-to-edge display with 16 x 9 aspect ratio and 367ppi pixel density.
iPhone 4S touts an 8 mega pixel iSight camera that comes with custom lens with a larger f/2.4 aperture, an improved backside illumination sensor, excellent auto white balance, advanced color accuracy, face detection and reduced motion blur.
Meanwhile, reports claim that the iPhone 5 will have a 3D camera and the camera will capture light and image information to create an incredible 3D image that can be seen without glasses.
While 3D camera is nothing new in today’s mobile devices, Apple believes the existing 3D cameras and video records are incapable of getting detailed information of the shapes, surfaces and depth of the objects. But Apple will include series of systems, tools and methods to capture a 3D image and capture its geometric information relating to the surfaces of objects.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said “First-generation LTE chipsets force a lot of design compromises” and thus, was not included in the iPhone 4S.
But now an increasing number of rumors are indicating the iPhone 5 will be LTE support enabled. And, to make the phone LTE enabled, Apple has to accommodate a larger circuit board and a bigger battery making the device a little thicker than its predecessor which of course does not support LTE. According to 9to5mac, iPhone 5 will carry the latest Gobi chips so that the phone supports low-power voice/data on a variety of mobile networks, including China Mobile’s TD-LTE.
Better Processor and Better RAM
iPhone 4S features dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 processor with PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU, Apple A5 chipset and 512 MB RAM.
Digitimes on Thursday reported that the next iPhone is coming with a new quad-core processor based on Samsung’s Exynos 4 ARM architecture.
Some earlier reports claimed that the phone will have A6 processor that will clock in at superfast 1.2 to 1.5 GHz with 1GB RAM to offer amazing processing capabilities to the smartphone. According to 9to5mac, iPhone 5 will feature a new “SGX543RC*” GPU (number of the chip could not be divulged to protect the identity of the source).
Currently iPhone 4S Li-Po 1420 mAh battery gives up to 8 hours of talk time on 3G and up to 14 hours on 2G (GSM). Given that iPhone 5 will come with a HD display and powerful apps, it is highly probable that the Cupertino giant will pack in a better battery with it.
iPhone 4S runs on Apple’s latest iOS 5 operating system while it is expected that iPhone 5 will feature the new iOS 6.0 seed 10A33X with iBoot version iBoot-153x.x. The new OS will add a fifth row of icons and an interface offering views of more content.
Other Features that will give advantage to iPhone 5
- Redesigned back plate
- Unibody construction
- iWallet and Near Field Communication (NFC)
- Face Unlock
- New Dock Plug
- 3D GUI
- Wireless Charging
- Nanotech coating
- Improved Siri
- Apple’s new Map app
iPhone 5 Release Date:
While some say iPhone 5 is coming in August or September, some think October 2012 is the most likely iPhone 5 release date.
What do you think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
July 6, 2012, 9:39 A.M. EDT — Apple’s platforms on the verge of eliminating Microsoft’s software advantage. Ahead of the rumored iPhone 5 and iPad Mini, Cupertino’s operating systems reportedly stealing platform dominance from Redmond, numbers suggest.
Apple is reportedly on the verge of stealing the platform dominance away from Microsoft, and the new numbers posted online might explain why Apple is protecting its tablet computer and smartphone market share so badly (ex: worldwide lawsuits).
New analysis with numbers by Horace Dediu at Asymco, as reported by Telegraph, suggested that Microsoft’s platform advantage is in danger due to growing demand for smartphones and tablet computers and Dediu suggests that if the rate will continue — Apple sales (tablets, smartphones, Macs) and the whole Windows units sales will be even within the next year or two, and it will give Apple the advantage of enjoying its own BIG market share while other players share with its own Windows rivals.
Dediu compares the ratio of Windows-powered personal computers to Macs sold last year which is the lowest since the launch of the Microsoft Windows 95 PC operating system, but after adding the iPhones and iPads sales, or devices running Apple’s iOS, the ratio of Windows units to iOS and Macintosh combined sales has dropped to less than two. In short, Dediu thinks that Apple is quickly catching up thanks to its stronger Post-PC lineup.
Now you know why Microsoft will sell its own tablet computer this year, the Microsoft Surface apart from bringing the tablet PC and desktop and laptop computers into one unified ecosystem called Windows 8 which supports both keyboards and touch panels by adding the Metro user interface.
But Apple is also not into lazy mode. In fact, analysts have suggested that Apple will launch cheaper devices amid rumors that the iPhone 5 is coming to stores in October. According to similar reports, Apple will introduce the iPad Mini which will include a smaller display and slightly older processor and touch display to lower the production cost and the retail price.
Another company worth mentioning is Google. Microsoft’s Surface is also set to compete with the search giant’s new Nexus 7 tablet computer which sports a super competitive tag price of just $199.99. Google is also strong in the smartphone market thanks to its Android operating system which owns more than 50 per cent of the smartphone operating system market share vs Apple’s two-digit score around 20s per cent and Microsoft’s still in the single-digit territory.
If Microsoft can sell “a lot” of Microsoft Surface, and also its PC partners, then the numbers can still change.

Late last week, news broke that a new 19 pin mini connector port would be replacing the current standard connector used on all Apple products. That is only the tip of the iceberg though for iPhone 5 rumors. WWDC, the release of iOS 6, and a few crafty outlets have been able to confirm some new features for the next iPhone, leaving little to doubt. The exact iPhone 5 release date is still up in the air – although we have pin pointed it slightly. We can confirm that the iPhone 5 will be released in the fall – likely September or October – we just don’t know the exact date yet. The new iPhone will be the first product to fully utilize iOS 6′s capabilities.
From rumored iPhone 5 specs, iPhone5 release date, new leaked photos, new processor, NFC Capabilities, a larger iPhone screen, a new 19 pin mini connector, a moved headphone jack and last but not least a metal casing, we have rounded up everything little thing that we know about the iPhone 5.
iPhone 5 Release Date
The iPhone 5 release date is expected in September or early October of 2012. Seeing that iOS 6 will be available in the fall you should expect to see that aligned with the release of the iPhone 5. We have also heard a rumor of a new mini iPad being released this fall along side the iPhone 5 release date.
iPhone 5 Potential Specs
We can officially confirm a new iPhone connector and larger iPhone screen. This is huge news because now Apple’s chargers are no longer consistent from device to device. A larger iPhone screen is also an enormous move from Apple as it has been on everyone’s wish list since day one.
Also brand new as of last week, is the possibility of Near Field Communication controllers directly connected to the Power Management Unit of the new iPhone. This comes from a report on 9to5mac. NFC has been a buzzword surrounding the mobile industry for a while. Let’s see if Apple can introduce it successfully to the world.
iPhone 5 Potential Designs
iPhone 5 Potential Designs
Ok, back to specs. And the first thing to consider and only potential downside with a larger iPhone screen is the affect on the developer market. With the new iPad 3, Apple made developers create entirely new apps in order to fit the new screen resolution. However, Apple has so much control over the market, that they can do this, unfortunately. I would expect something similar with the iPhone 5 release. Good news is that developers know that it’s coming.
The next enormous change is having 4G LTE compatibility for the iPhone5. Apple is currently late to the game with this as most Android phones are already using the 4G network. Third, a quad core processor and upgraded chipset, here’s a new report on the possibility of a quad core processor. Next, is the potential of a 3D camera for the iPhone. Last but not least is the introduction of a “LiquidMetal” casing which would allow for a stronger and unique casing. Check out the report below. In addition to a few new specs, you can expect to see an updated operating system aka iOS 6. Here are some rumors surrounding the iOS 6 release date.
iPhone 5 Concept
Check out this iPhone 5 concept video. If this doesn’t get you fired up for the newest Apple iPhone, I don’t know what will.
This week: the wow of core confusion, palpitations over an earlier announcement date, an explosively self-combustive and bad
omen, and epistemological angst in the iOSphere.
You read it here second.
“Know Your Mobile, however, still can’t see Apple bringing the release date forward two whole months. … Put simply this is no more than wishful thinking, in our eyes …”
– Richard Goodwin, KnowYourMobile.com, generously describing the speculation that Apple will release iPhone 5 in August
iPhone 5 will have a quad-core processor after all
A DigiTimes post reignited faith that iPhone 5 will have a quad-core processor, usually referred to as the A6, even though there’s no indication
that doubling the number of cores would actually deliver significant improvements to the user experience.
The DigiTimes post, widely referred to as both a “story” and a “report,” consists of five sentences, derived from otherwise-anonymous “industry
sources.” The two writers, David Shen and Steve Shen, don’t even bother to say which industry: smartphone, semiconductor,
supply chain, janitorial services or hospitality.
Sentence one: “Competition for quad-core smartphones will heat up in the fourth quarter of 2012, triggering by the roll-out of much speculated new iPhone and models built based
on Qualcomm’s quad-core chips, according to industry sources.”
Sentence five, which pretty much repeats sentence one: “Additionally, Apple is also expected to release its next-generation
iPhone built on Samsung’s Exynos 4 quad-core processor in the second half, heating up competition in the segment, commented
Strictly speaking this last sentence means that DigiTimes sources are saying nothing more than that the Next iPhone “is expected” (by whom?) to have a CPU that’s based on the newest
Samsung-designed quad-core chip.
“Wow,” writes Michael Nace, at iPhone 5 News Blog, apparently without irony.
The rumor that the Next iPhone will have a four-core processor has been around for over a year: Many confidently predicted
that what turned out to be the iPhone 4S would have such a CPU. In fact, it uses the Apple-designed, Samsung-built dual-core
A5, first introduced in iPad 2.
(Something similar happened for the iPad 3. For example Jonathan Geller, at Boy Genius Report, publishing photos that “showed” the Next iPad would have a four-core CPU; Apple stuck with a slightly modified version of the A5, called the
A5X, which replaced an integrated dual-core graphics processor with a quad-core model.)
Smartphones with quad-core CPUs have started to appear from a few vendors such as HTC, Samsung and LG Electronics. The DigiTimes post simply reignites the debate over Apple’s plans without actually contributing anything to it.
July 6, 2012: 11:16 A.M. — Samsung is launching a new smartphone reportedly before the October quarter to compete with the next iPhone 5. Here’s the latest rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, the next-gen tab-phone of the mobile phone giant.
Siri says she’s excited about the next Samsung refrigerator (see video in the middle), but sadly, Samsung is not launching the first Android-based fridge yet. The good news, at least for Android fans, more rumors appear online claiming that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 2 soon.
According to latest rumors posted online, Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 2 in August at the IFA event in Europe similar to the company’s 2011 Galaxy Note schedule. The device will reportedly include a 5.5-inch HD display, and may include a quad-core CPU (for the international variant) similar to the processor of the brand new Samsung Galaxy S3 — the Exynos quad-core system-on-a-chip. 12-megapixel camera and better build quality are also reportedly in tow.
But the biggest “thing” surrounding the Galaxy Note 2 is its mobile operating system. Hush hush online suggest that Samsung will use Google’s latest version of Android which include the Siri competitor “Google Now,” and other features like project butter, new camera app, new notification tray and more — the Android Jelly Bean. So, Samsung will not update the Galaxy S3 to Jelly Bean yet and will release a new device first?
We love the Galaxy Note 2 idea, but we love the Jelly Bean on Galaxy S3 more. We think the better strategy is to update the Samsung Galaxy S3′s mobile operating system from ICS to Jelly Bean FIRST, before releasing a new device with Android Jelly Bean in it. According to Samsung, they’ll reach the 10 million Galaxy S3 sales mark by the end of this month, and it will put the new smartphone in the “successful category.”
Can the Galaxy Note 2 beat the iPhone 5? I think it is safe to bet that Samsung will launch the Note 2 in United States by October with Long Term Evolution in tow, and the device will compete with the iPhone 5 of Apple that will reportedly arrive right after the release of the iOS 6.
Apart from competing with the iPhone 5, the new Samsung tablet will also compete with Google’s new inexpensive Nexus 7 which runs the real version of Android Jelly Bean. If the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will arrive to stores around October, then it will join a crowded market filled with cheap tablets with powerful processors and the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.

Android-packing Samsung Galaxy S III will be arriving in stores in a few days with plenty of fanfare to welcome it. The Galaxy Nexus is expected to change into new clothes and reappear wearing the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
All these hot Android developments mean the ball is now lobbed onto Apple’s side of the smartphone court. The
iPhone 5 is shrouded in both secrecy and juicy rumors. It may be bigger. It may have NFC. It may be a true world phone.
The biggest problem is you may have to wait until September for the official
iPhone 5 announcement. With some enticing Android options showing up sooner, how antsy are you for a fresh, new phone?
CNET Senior Writer Maggie Reardon tackled this exact question. Her advice? It depends on your needs and expectations, but the Android options are good enough that you probably won’t regret getting your new smartphone now.
Let’s hear it from you. You may be a dedicated iPhone user or a committed Android-phile. You may be considering a change of smartphone operating systems. You may have have the patience of a saint, or you may be ready to pull the trigger on a new Galaxy.

Rumors say that Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) will announce what will inevitably be described as an iPhone 5 killer. Let’s call it the Kindle Phone? In IT Blogwatch, bloggers live in interesting times.
By Richi Jennings: Your humble blogwatcher curated these bloggy bits for your entertainment. Not to mention: It’s Wimbleableabledom!..
Tim Culpan, Olga Kharif, and Ashlee Vance go all tag-team stylee:
Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) is developing a smartphone…two people with knowledge of the matter said. Foxconn…is working with Amazon on the device. … Amazon declined to comment.
Amazon beefed up its patent prowess recently. … Adding patents would help Amazon protect itself against lawsuits. … Amazon has been involved in five patent-related cases this year, and 20 cases last year.
Jon Russell fills in the blanks:
Amazon’s tablet runs a modified version of the…Android operating system and it seems [it] would continue to its cut its own variant…which would presumably also have access to the Kindle app store.
Amazon and Foxconn have a long relationship, although…a different supplier [builds] Kindle Fire. … Speculation over a Foxconn-built Amazon smartphone surfaced in November.
Todd Bishop moves diagonally:
The company shook up the tablet market with the…Kindle Fire. … The need to work with wireless carriers could make it tougher to [do that] with a phone. However, the company does have plenty of experience…as a retailer through its Amazon Wireless store.
The move would give…Microsoft more competition for the No. 3 spot.
And Dan Frommer suggests a business model:
But why, Clinton Jeff; why?
Sure, why not right?
Amazon does have the infrastructure in place. … They have an App Store, and they have delivery services. I’d imagine this will be a US-only affair.
At the end of the day, it’s still just another reskinned-Android.
However, Chris Chaves disagrees with that last point:
…but just like the Kindle Fire, all the Google apps…will be ripped from the OS [for] Amazon’s Appstore and media services.
The smartphone market could always use a new contender, and…it would be nice to recommend a heavily “dumbed down” Android device…(I’m sick of being my family’s tech support guy)…an affordable smartphone for the masses…[but] it’s going to be hard to get the price down below…the $350 Galaxy Nexus.
Meanwhile, Jason Kaneshiro guesses at the next rumor rounds:
The speculation and rumours surrounding the next smartphone from Apple have been heating up in recent weeks, with many fans of the platform hoping for something special this time round, and today we can tell you the iPhone 5 is rumoured to be joining the quad-core party.
According to an article on Tech Source there are claims that the iPhone 5 will be powered by a quad-core processor, and be similar to the Exynos 4 Quad from Samsung. The source is not making any claims to which company will be responsible of manufacturing the processors, but it is being suggested they will be based on the same technology that Samsung uses for their Exynos 4 Quad components.
Previously Apple has used ARM processors that were compatible with its mobile devices, and they were made by bitter rival Samsung. While there are some that believe the chances of the next iPhone featuring a quad core processor are pretty low, and it would be surprising if Apple were to use technology from other companies considering the ongoing patent disputes.
An iPhone 5 powered by a dual core processor would work great running the iOS 6 operating system, and the company’s history tells us that it likes to place the iPad chipsets into the next version of the iPhone. The Apple iPhone 4 was treated to the single core A4 processor found in the original iPad, and the iPhone 4S uses a processor that is based on the iPad 2’s dual core A5 unit.
This could mean the iPhone 5 may feature a dual core A5X SoC LTE unit that made its debut earlier this year with the new iPad. We have already heard numerous suggestions that the iPhone 5 will sport a bigger display, and the device will have many consumers that have already decided to purchase the handset before anything is made official about it. Recent suggestions have also hinted at the device being released earlier than expected.
Do you hope the iPhone 5 has a quad core processor?
The iPhone 5 will purportedly roll out this fall followed closely by the Motorola Droid RAZR HD. While there is nothing confirmed about either one of these devices other than the fact that we will see both of them sometime this year, who doesn’t love a good comparison of much anticipated smartphones based solely on rumors? Don’t answer that and read on as we find out more about which of these unicorns come out on top in our mythical comparison of the iPhone 5 vs Motorola DROID RAZR HD.
Rumors battle: iPhone 5 vs Motorola DROID RAZR HD
Design And Body build: If the leaked pictures are any indication, then the iPhone takes first place. Some might like the unusual diamond design of the RAZR, but you can’t argue that every iPhone just has that effortless classy look that gives it the edge. In terms of body build, the RAZR HD has the carbon fibre material of its predecessor and this nudges it out ahead of of other plastic-like Androids like the Samsung Galaxy S3 but not the iPhone 5.
Processor: f Apple plans to use the previous iPad’s processor in the next iPhone, as usual, then the iPhone 5 will probably have an A5X chip. The Motorola RAZR HD may well feature a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core chip if a leak from Nenamark is true. This means both smartphones will be among the year’s fastest.
Display: Apple has proven quite definitively that no other manufacturer comes close in terms of screen pixel density. A recent Japanese blog posted a video claiming that the iPhone 5 will have a 4-inch display. Now given that even the huge MacBook Pro has a Retina display, it’s likely that iPhone 5 will have a greater pixel density than the 4S. The RAZR HD has an odd screen resolution of 1196x720p, and some pixels are likely to be dedicated to onscreen buttons. There’s as yet no info on screen size (speculated to be bigger than the iPhone 5 though).
Camera: It’s been ‘confirmed’ that the RAZR HD will have a 13MP camera, which takes it way ahead of the 8MP camera touted for the iPhone 5. There’s a picture leaked on to Picasa, rumoured to be taken by the Droid RAZR HD, that shows greater picture quality than its predecessors and even the iPhone 4S to the naked eye.
Battery: The Motorola RAZR HD is likely to best the iPhone 5 in battery as well, with a 3,300 mAh battery that’s more than twice the iPhone’s 1,430 mAh offering (according to 9to5mac).
Connectivity: Both smartphones will most likely come with the standard connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G, USB and of course 4G LTE support. What may prove to be a bummer, tough, is schlepping files from your PC to your iPhone 5 via iTunes.
Conclusion: If you’re not all that into Apple and can hang on a few months, then wait for Motorola to show what it has done with the RAZR HD. If you already have an iPhone and love Apple, you’ll prefer the iPhone 5 as this year it appears that all flagship devices are almost neck-to-neck in terms of hardware specifications.
Apple is gearing up to release the next generation iPhone, presumably called the iPhone 5, according to a new report from TechRadar.
The technology blog reported that analyst Shaw Wu recently revealed that Apple reduced the number of iPhone 4S orders by between 20 and 25 percent for its next fiscal quarter. According to Wu, his indicated that the company is gearing up for the launch of its next smartphone.

The change is “”due to the upcoming 6th generation iPhone refresh likely in the September-October timeframe.”
Analysts expect Apple to unveil the iPhone 5 this fall in September or October. A recent rumor reported by 247Emirates claimed the company was planning to push the new iPhone’s release date up to August to compete with Samsung, but the rumor has been generally dismissed by analysts and tech blogs.
Know Your Mobile argued out that Apple has never rushed its products before. The tech blog reported on the rumor but does not expect it to prove true:
Know Your Mobile, however, still can’t see Apple bringing the release date forward two whole months. The affect that it would have on the production process, given its complexity, would be disastrous. Put simply this is no more than wishful thinking, in our eyes – although we’d certainly like to see the new Apple device sooner rather than later.
Apple has yet to release any information regarding the iPhone 5, but the unveiling of iOS 6, the company’s newest mobile operating software slated for release this fall, revealed some new features we can expect to see on newest iPhone.
One of the best software changes is the way iOS 6 will give iPhone owners more options beyond “Answer” and “Decline.” If you’re too busy to answer the phone you will have the option to instantly respond with a list of preprogrammed text messages, including “I’ll call you later” or “I’m on my way.”
iPhone users too busy to respond to the call in real time can even set a reminder to return the call later. A “Do No Disturb” function will also give users the option to choose who they can recieve calls from at certain times of the day.
Apple is replacing built-in Google Maps software with it’s own application which they claim will feature easier step-by-step directions. The new app is vector-based to create detailed graphics and detailed texts even when the map is zoomed all the way in.
The new Apple Maps will also feature visual and spoken navigations, including not only turn-by-turn directions but also real-time traffic updates.
The iPhone electronic personal assistant is getting smarter and more useful. If you ask about sports it will show you live scores and stats. Siri can find restaurants and movie times and even update Facebook for you or turn your voice into Twitter messages.
Apple is also working with car manufacturers to create eyes-free Siri voice-control mode for safer driving.
The iOS 6 will make using Facebook with your iPhone easier than ever. Photos and video can be posted straight from the photo reel and your location can be posted straight from Maps.
Additionally, once logged into Facebook, all your events and birthdays will be synched with the iPhone.
Share Photos With Your Friends Through iCloud
iOS 6 will let users share photos with their friends though iCloud to any Mountain Lion Apple devices.
New FaceTime lets you receive video calls through cellular networks and not just Wi-Fi. So now you can use FaceTime whenever and wherever you want.
Guided Access with the iOS 6 will make the iPhone easier to use for people with vision, hearing, mobility and learning disabilities.
Mail Gets Redesigned
The Mail application has been redesigned to be more streamlined and easier to use.
