  • Report: Apple to Release iPhone 4S, Not iPhone 5 This September on Sprint, T-Mobile


    A major story has broken that is quickly taking the tech blogosphere by storm. As reported within the hour by Forbes, analyst Peter Misek with the prominent firm Jeffries & Co. has come forward with claims that Apple's next generation iPhone will not be the iPhone 5 after all. Given the minor cosmetic changes we've all anticipated, the refreshed touchscreen handset will be released as the iPhone 4S.

    "According to our industry checks, the device should be called iPhone 4S and include minor cosmetic changes, better cameras, A5 dual-core processor, and HSPA+ support," Misek stated in a research note to investors. Misek also says that his sources confirm the iPhone's expansion to Sprint and T-Mobile, a move that will effectively make Apple's celebrated handset available on all four major carriers in the US. Apple‘s anticipated iPhone upgrade, however, isn’t likely to include LTE functionality.

    "Industry checks indicate Apple will likely announce Sprint, T-Mobile, and China Mobile as new carriers." The "iPhone 4S" name hasn't been widely used to discuss the next-generation iPhone. But due to the now-obvious fact that next month's WWDC is all about iOS and not new hardware, it appears that the plan inside Apple is to release the slightly modified iPhone 4S this September.

    As summer rapidly approaches, all signs, reports, and supposed leaks appear to corroborate what this late Friday report from Forbes has revealed. To read the full article, click here.

      I swear to God they better not call it the iPhone 4GS. Horrid name. iPhone Deluxe would be better.

      Lol. You've been holding out forever. Are you ever going to get a new iPhone?

      I'm late seeing this, but I do remember when I phoned up AT&T about what can they offer me to keep me w/ em, I asked if they knew about when the iP5 was coming out(I always ask about new products even if I think I may know their answer) and the rep asked me "What makes you think its going to be called the iP5 and not a 4G or 4GS?"

      As far as me scooping up this phone, we'll see how it looks when it comes out. Personally, I feel I need a bit of a change from my 3Gs. Thats just me though.

      Good thing extending the carriers to all 4 cause it might lower the prices due to the competition, about the spec not that much of a change.

      Lol, I guess it wasn't a mistake buying an iPhone 4 this late in the game.
