According to an unnamed source at Foxconn who spoke with 9to5Mac, production of the Apple iPhone 5
is gearing up. Various prototypes of the next-gen Apple iPhone have been circulating and they all have in common a design that would mean a larger 4 inch display for the model One of the prototypes' 4 inch screen was made by Korean based LG. The shape of the phone will not be tear-shaped
as was the overwhelming expectations prior to the launch of the iPhone 4S
. Samples have been symmetrical in shape besides being longer and wider. None of the prototypes has the form factor of the Apple iPhone 4/4S.
If you're wondering how reliable 9to5Mac's
source is, this tipster was dead on last year in saying that there would be no Apple iPhone 5 when everyone else was saying that the iPhone 5 was a layup. So when this source says that the information points to Apple getting back on track for its usual summer launch pattern
that was broken last year, perhaps we should listen.
