iPhone 5: No Giant Screen, 16:9 Ratio or Metal Back; Smaller Dock Connector Coming [Rumours]

Looks like we have some more rumours coming our way for the next iPhone 5, according to iMore:

…according to our sources Apple still hasn’t finalized the design of the next generation iPhone 5 (or whatever Apple ends up calling iPhone 5,1). No giant screen. No 16:9 aspect ratio. No metal back.


Currently, the new, smaller dock connector is being implemented, but no changes to screen size or aspect ratio have been decided on. And yes, it still has a Home button.

It was also noted October is once again the launch period for the next generation iPhone, alongside a 7-inch iPad. Oh, and Apple will be implementing their own mapping solution to bypass Google. Once again, rumours of a smaller dock connector have surfaced again.

I don’t know what else to say but these rumours sound like Christmas day is approaching. Thoughts?
