Latest Apple iPhone 5 speculation; no big change in screen size
Now that the the new Apple iPad has been launched, the rumor mill is turning its attention to the Apple iPhone 5. According to iMove, a site that correctly forecast the date when the Cupertino based firm would announce the new iPad, as well as correctly predicting its 4G connectivity, the next Apple iPhone will also support LTE. There is some bad news for those who were counting on Apple to challenge Android models with large sized displays. According to iMove's sources, the display on the next iPhone will be similar to if not the same 3.5 inches that it always has been. This goes against recent speculation that Apple would be increasing the screen to as much as 4.6 inches on the 6th gen Apple iPhone.

One change that iMove says will happen is a switch to a smaller dock port for charging and data transfers. If this rumor is correct, the 30 pin connector that has come inside the Apple iPhone box since day 1 will become a thing of the past. That dovetails with a report from Japanese blog Macotakara which back in October forecast the smaller port, saying that Apple wanted to make room for other components inside the phone.

According to the source, the next Apple iPhone is on schedule for a fall release, most likely in October.
