  • 4th Gen iPhone May Debut June 22nd


    Although the biggest news of the day has been reserved for Apple's powerhouse internal hardware upgrades to their Macbook Pro line, there is also (potential) news worth discussing about the 4th gen iPhone. Ever since the iPhone 4.0 OS was unveiled in grand fashion with long awaited (and long overdue) features including multitasking, Apple fans have been chomping at the bit to get their first look at the 4th gen iPhone in all its glory.

    Although no confirmations have yet come from Apple (naturally), there is speculation that the big reveal could take place on June 22nd. For this particular occasion, Apple has once again reserved the very conference center where the company announced the three previous versions of the iPhone. So all signs, indeed, point to June 22nd proving the 4th gen iPhone's "big day." Knowing Apple, however, we probably won't know for sure until the evening of June 21st. After all, something has to drive the rumor mill until then, right?

    Like never before, the hype surrounding iPhone 4.0 OS is in full swing, months ahead of the new iPhone's debut. For now, Apple simply maintains that the hot new OS will "ship this summer" for both the iPhone and the iPad. And while a dev beta is already available, the lack of backwards compatibility with previous generations of the iPhone is rightfully making the iPhone-obsessed community uncomfortably edgy about the seemingly eternal wait before the new device is rolled out.

    For what it's worth, while no concrete evidence has turned up to suggest the announcement of a Verizon iPhone at the June 22nd event, there have been unconfirmed reports suggesting the possible existence of a Verizon iPhone being used in the US in recent days. Could this be evidence leading to a major development about which we've all been sickened thanks to years of unsubstantiated rumors thus far? Your guess is as good as mine.

      If not the next iPhone, for sure go for a pre plus on Verizon, if not, go for the EVO 4G.

      BTW: as far as the Verizon iPhone, as I always say, READ MY SIG!

      There will be no sim-less iPhone, when it came to CDMA carriers in canada, like bell, they still used a sim card and it's the only non-CDMA phone on the bell network

      debut is on June 22, so the actual phone coming out would be somewhere around August time in 2010?

      that doesn't mean apple won't release it to Verizon... they will just pull the "Apple" version of that commercial and still use the "At&t" version of it...Like using it as a leverage tool over Verizon...and then Verizon can use their "We cover everywhere" ads to leverage themselves over At&t......so basically its a win-win for Apple lol

      me and the wifey are getting ours for sure whenever launch day is. we did it the past 3 years theres no stopping now. and for you guys not eligible to upgrade, i might suggest becoming primary holder on your family plans if you have one and taking advantage of the ATT upgrade advantage. or just start working for ATT and magic can happen


      heres the link to the upgrade advantage
      AT&T Upgrade Advantage(SM) - Wireless from AT&T


      edit: the above link doesnt show it but i assure you, if your lines MRC is over 100+ you get upgrades every 366 days. yes that means if you got the 3gs last year on june 22 you would be eligible on 6/23. now this MRC is based off a 3 month trend so switch up those accounts now to be eligible sooner!!!

      does anyone think it will be the same $200 with 2 year contract? I might have second thoughts on getting it if it ends up costing me more than $400. thats why i didnt get the ipad, just not worth it to me.

      MORE BATTERY LIFE!!! For the love of God....
      And not a smaller battery and "more efficient" crap, like in the new MBP's...just a bigger battery please so that we can multi-task and not have to buy mophie battery packs that limit our signal.

      The problem is AT&T is only a Lexus in about 15% of the country, the rest are covered more primarily by:
      TMobile
      Sprint
      Verizon
      A host of smaller carriers.

      When you say eligible, do you get the 4th gen iPhone for free and just sign up for a new contract paying the monthly price?

      I can't wait for the 4th gen, my 3GS's free internet runs out and I'll have to start paying for it so to get 12 months free internet again, I'll have to buy iPhone 4th gen and sell my 3GS
      It has to be a new design with a greatly improved battery and camera flash.
