Next Gen iPhone Rumors: Weekend Roundup

Share:

There has been speculation that a new iPhone is imminent and will be unleashed this summer during Apple’s 2009 WWDC. Whenever a new product is about to be released, rumors always float around the interwebs.

This weekend encapsulated a plethora of interesting new features that iPhone OS 3.0 will have and what new features the next gen iPhone 4G might include as well. Let’s review some of the rumors we heard about on the weekend!

Possible Features of the Next Gen iPhone That You Will Have to Buy Regardless of How Much Disposable Income You Have in the Bank

DigiTimes reports that OmniVision has received orders for 3.2MP CMOS sensors, which means the next iPhone camera could be much improved.
– iPhone OS 3.0 will enable 11 pages of apps, making for 180 apps max, versus the current 148 limit–more room means more fart apps to download!

– AT&T is reportedly upgrading their 3G network frantically to make time for a faster iPhone coming this summer. AT&T upgraded their networks prior to the 3G launch, so this could mean something faster is coming our way. Maybe it coincides with the Rogers 4G network upgrade rumor we reported earlier.
– Another report states that two different iPhone models will be announced, with “high end” and “low end” models depending on where the iPhone is being sold.
– Could the next iPhone also take advantage of low-power consuming 802.11n WiFi?
– More 3.0 digging has revealed possible video editing tools!

Waiting for the Next iPhone is What Keeps Me Up at Night (and awake during the day)

I think most of the 3.0 features rumors have some legitimacy as there are thousands of iPhone developers currently have access to the 3.0 firmware beta. But when it comes to the other features of the next gen iPhone, Apple is known to keep a tight lid on next gen hardware upgrades.

Most of the time, the juiciest rumors with the most weight usually are “leaked” a couple days before major announcements, such as Apple Events. In this case, we could possibly expect some exciting news once the 2009 WWDC is kicked off come June 8-12.

We do know that Rogers and Fido have started to discontinue their iPhone 3G stock. This could very well be an indication that something big is yet to come.

What do you think will emerge once the summer arrives? Anything from the rumors above you think will show up or disappear?

    Regarding depletion of current stock at fido/rogers… This could also be due to unmet targets between them and apple. Some months ago I was prevy to info from a rogers higher up whom stated that preliminary sales were fine.. But following sales were exceedingly off target.

    Well it is true that their r some rumors, but apple did do a very long video on the 3.0 OS, and some of the new features that r not rumors r in app purcheses, meaning u can buy something through ur iTunes account withing an app, a new push notification system will be added, this will make it so that it will appear as if apps were running in the background cuz they can give u notifiactions when u leave the app, and they will make it so that u can connect ur iPhone to a device and let software comunicate with that device, plus they will have MMS and P2P through bluetooth for stuff like games, and among all the 1000 new APIs me will allow an app to accses ur music library, that and they did mention this in the video to, but it would need new hardware to work, and that would be to broad cast ur music over an FM tuner so that u can listen to ur music on any radio
