As usual, there’s a massive amount of anticipation (plus speculation) to see what Apple’s next iPhone will be like. This time around a plethora of leaked parts, now fully assembled, all claim to be included into the next-gen iPhone. Way more than the iPhone 4S, or even the 4. This new iPhone is expected to have a 4-inch display, be thinner and taller, but have a design similar to its predecessors.
Today, yet another new video of what’s being called the iPhone 5, graciously provided by an “anonymous source,” has arrived on YouTube. The major difference to this 3:21 video is that it shows the device being turned on, but because its lacking a new doc connector cable it can’t be “connected to iTunes”. Overall, based on the previous leaks, it’s a convincing quick demo of the hardware.
Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, stated in May that “We’re going to double down on secrecy on products.” If all the leaked videos and images of the upcoming ‘iPhone 5’ parts turn out to be true then he really should quadruple down. I’m all for the leaks, but if Apple is in fact doubling down on security there’s also a possibility they’re pulling a similar move to what Samsung did with the Galaxy S III and making prototype designs to disguise their flagship device from being revealed. Anything is possible.
Apple is rumoured to be holding a media event on September 12th, then releasing their next iPhone on September 21st.
