iPhone 5: 10 very likely new features
The new iPhone is right around the corner now. Apple has officially confirmed its September 12 event, so it's pretty much inevitable that by the end of the week, we'll know everything about the iPhone 5 and more. But one thing has been very different this year - the rumors we're hearing are quite consistent. This matters, because last year, for example, it was the usual amount of random rumors such as "bigger screen", "LTE", "widgets", a bunch of fake mock-ups...

Well, this year, we're pretty much seeing the same prototype leak over and over again, which kind of makes us think that Apple's usually leak-proof security may not be as tight these days. And in case this isn't just part of a secret plan for Apple — to continuously leak this prototype, so that everyone thinks that this will be the iPhone 5, and then surprisingly unveil a completely different device — we think this will be the first year ever when we have such accurate information prior to the iPhone launch.

With that said, let's go through the new features that are expected to be part of the new iPhone. Check them out by cycling through the gallery below!

Yes, they will change everything, they will take those steps that no one has taken before.
A bigger screen, LTE, NFC, a better than VGA camera and a gigantic 1440 mAh battery.
It's so innovative!
*rolls eyes*

I think you're right. PA loves iphone. PA loves and the other companies fear. I read that Motorola and Nokia will antecipate the announce of the new smartphones. I think they are trying to stop Apple from taking even more market share. These guys are desperate! Source:http://loveinireland.info/newsfeed/iphone
PS: Nokia rocks!!

Apple drives hits and controversies. PA ain't stupid. If every iPhone and Apple VS. Android article get 55 to 100 responses and maybe three times as many hits, WHY would they stop the articles? The iPhone 5 will be a monster hit, Android, WP, and BlackBerry users will still not get it due to the lack of actual improvements over anything out there, and the flame wars will ignite like dry timber.

When Apple is releasing new products, everyone in the tech web site universe eats.

Not gonna lie, I'm kind of interested to see what the new iPhone has. I'm an Android fanatic all the way, but Apple has to know there are tech people out other waiting for something better. I feel like they need a really clean design with a bigger screen, more free apps, and hopefully a game changer that allows a little more customization. Its going to be the same boring iPhone unless they really innovate and stop suing everyone like a bunch of pussies. Android is killing it and I wouldn't trade my Nexus for anything else right now.

For Apple the 30-pin charging cord is older than colour screens on their mobile devices. Apparently changing it is groudbreaking because of that.

If the iPhone 5 has a bigger screen that's enough of a innovation for the Apple company. They'll throw in there a few useless features like they did with the 4S and voilla...the new REVOLUTIONARY and ORIGINAL iPhone 5 !!
