  • [ RUMOR ] Next iPhone Model to be Released in June


    Emirates Telecommunications - Etisalat, a United Arab Emirates, is getting the iPhone February 15th. What does that have to do with you (uh, if you are not in the UAE)? In the same interview with the Dow Jones when Mark Davis, Program Director for iPhone at Etisalat, announced they'd be getting the iPhone on February 15th, he apparently also said although they were getting this version late than many countries, the

    next version of the device, which is due out in June, will be launched in the UAE at the same time.
    Phil Schiller also hinted at this in an interview with David Pogue after MacWorld, when he said that Apple sticks to annual product schedules, of which the iPhone's is in June.

    Recently, mentions of a new hardware revision have been discovered in the iPhone firmware, reaching back a few firmware cycles.

    Other sites are also wondering what happened to Apple's promised Push notification, and noting that a major hardware revision may be necessary to improve backgrounding ability if Push isn't coming. I'm not sure exactly what they're bsing that on though - Ashikase's Backgrounder has been holding up decently. Improved hardware can't hurt, though.

      Also, there appears to be a new way of giving us more choices of words from the spell checker.
      Which are all s/ware improvements - no need for a new iPhone just new FW.

      Notice the Optical Sensor on the FRONT of the iPhone. Don't think that's a software update. How else would you get video conferencing if you had to turn your phone around. Don't think to many people would be going for it.

      I missed that one.

      Have you ever made a video call - let alone a video conf?

      I've had the capability to make video calls for over 5 years.

      I've made 2

      Maybe other people are excited by by this 'must have' feature....

      Don't get me wrong, I'm not very excited about it either. I doubt I'd ever use it. Just trying to point out some more new things that could be making there way to the new iPhone.

      You made a fair point - but as I've said before, I'm very happy with the 3G hardware, more storage would be good and a better camera might be nice (although, to tell the truth, I'm quite happy with the one on the 3G). What I really want is all the potential software improvements.
      I haven't seen any potential hardware improvement that really excites me. I'd much rather they got the software right than released new hardware.

      Well, yes and no, if you looked at ripdev's hood, then you sort of have windows task manager on an iphone. Since it lists some processes operating that you are not sure if you should end or not, much like apples critique of the fault of task manager. *if i recall correctly* So if they do it, im sure it will be much more cleaner and user friendly like big boss's sbsettings ... but i dont know if id reach that far


      That being said, i dont know what's going to happen with push, it's been almost 7 months since the 3g launched and we are (give or take) 5 months away from the next iphone. And the iphone 3g is very successful without push, so i wouldnt be surprised if they post pone it closer to the next iphones release to help make that iphone successful, or if the theory they talked about was actually harder to implement thus making them find an alternative means which could be - backgrounding ..

      who knows

      I think there should be a speaker on every corner of the iphone so we can have surround sound when watching videos.

      All you need is 6 or 8 iPhones depending on whether you want 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound (and someone to write the software to separate out the feeds). Simple - problem solved

      On a side note: I see your sig asks for thanks but you have never given any - is this just because no one has ever helped you?

      The removable battery is going to have to be put on. Apparently europe doesn't like that fact that you can't have a removable battery. So for any new iphone sold over there they are going to have to be equipped with a removable battery.

      Im with you man. I could care less about new hardware. I want the software to be better. But a better camera with a flash and maybe a 32gb option would be very nice! And Video conferencing? Wouldnt the people you were talking to need to have a video conference capable phone as well? So basically is would only be used for business, not the everyday person.

      I was just going to ask this. I signed a new two year contract when I got my 3g, what makes anyone think AT&T will let anyone upgrade without paying the full price?

      If you previously had an iPhone, you dont need to wait 2 years until you can get a new phone; you can just get the new iPhone and all you are doing is renewing your contract...
