Apple is pretty sneaky when it comes to announcements. Unless some random guy in China figures out that the piece of metal in his hand is the next wave of Apple pandemonium, we aren’t told much until we are told. It’s all rumors!
As with all past products, a big event is sent out to those of us who matter (no us, yet!) and then it’s all over the net. Speculation as to hat it could be, why it’s later than last year or even earlier. We buy into this and I am sure Steve and Apple eat it up!
One of the biggest clues as to when we will get the latest iPhone is AT&T. The refurbished iPhone 3GS is being sold for $9 only leaving us to assume that they are aiming at clearing it out well before the release of iPhone 5. It’s very unlikely that AT&T would be doing this in July if something “better” was not on the horizon.
Another reason we may have it in August is iOS 5. Set for a fall release and on its third beta, it can only mean iOS5 will be on a new device.
When Apple realized they won’t be able to release the iPhone 5 in June like they wanted, smoke and mirrors became the game. A new White iPhone 4 appeared (who the heck cares!), Lion rumors hit, iOS5 was announced, leaving all the iPhone fanboys disappointed.
What do you think, will we have an iPhone in August? Will you upgrade?
