Update 1: John Gruber disagrees with Seth W. from 9to5Mac and says the next iPhone is not underway, and calls the claim of a bigger size ‘bullshit’.
Next generation iPhone 5 rumours already? You better believe it because 9to5Mac claims a reliable source from Foxconn has provided them with the following information:
- 4+ inch display (made by LG on at least one of them)
- No teardrop-shaped devices as were rumored in the lead up to the iPhone 4S. Samples so far have been symmetrical in thickness. Also longer/wider.
- None of the sample devices have the iPhone 4/4S form factor
- None of the devices are final versions
The source notes the next iPhone is geared for production with numerous prototypes floating around, and this was the same source that told them the 4S was coming instead of a brand new iPhone 5.
