Apple site confirms iPhone 5 name (and LTE support) prior to announcement

0. phoneArena 12 Sep 2012, 09:14 posted on

It turns out the search tool on Apple's site is very good. So good, in fact, that it has found what the name of the upcoming new iPhone is going to be. And the new iPhone is going to be called... iPhone 5! Amazing? Well, not really, but at least it's not iPhone 5 4G LTE (4.0) or something...

Apple fans let the droiders do all the commenting. We just enjoy using a great device.

It would be ground breaking when iPhone would be banned by Samsung or Google in one or other way instantly after release. :D

More like earth-shattering, 'cause the lawsuit would have to have been filed when there was no official word about the device, Further, the trial would have had toave been held, jury decision reached against Apple, and the judge would have issued a sales ban order. The only way this could happen is if it happened in a parallel universe that was slightly out of sync with the universe we are in. And when the two universes came into contact with each other, the earth shattered (matter-anti-matter thang)....

Sounds like a story line for a movie, eh? Maybe an indie release using iMovie?

I guess people complained about the change in the naming of the iPad (from iPad# to New iPad), and so the iPhone# convention was retained.

Que in HTC and SAMSUNG time for the useless apple to get banned. Yes being late to the 4G party years later means that you can pay a price. Piss on Apple and it's users...

If Steve were still alive, you would get a shout-out from him at the announcement. Unfortunately Timmy isn't into that kind of esoterica.

Don't think so. If they have come up with "Lighteneing" to draw cash out of pocket of end users they wouldn't make loss by doing this. They are cash hungry ...

Big Fruity's theme song, stolen of course from The Who and its iconic hit "Won't Get Fooled Again"

Big Fruitys take: Meet the new iPhoney, same as the old iPhoney.. No you won't get fooled again.. NO NO.. You won't get fooled again... Except the fantwinks...

Big fruity can't innovate so they'd rather litigate. Enjoy your 4 inches of massive screen. I am sure NO manufacturer has NEVER offered a 4 inch screen before, let alone one housed in a rectangle with rounded corners. LMAO WOW 5 rows of icons.. HMM love the fact big fruity CONTROLS your phones, your content. Read the user agreement. Its NOT your media you buy, its Big Fruitys! You just use it!

I'm kind of surprised that they're including LTE, knowing Apple's business tactics I would have assumed that they would have conveniently excluded LTE from this model only to add it to next years and call it the iPhone 5S so that everyone would go buy it again.

Besides the Iphone 5, that picture also confirms a sequel to Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married!
