Cheaper iPhone 4 & First Look at iPhone 5

In a few weeks Apple is expected to release the iPhone 5, but there’s also a cheaper iPhone 4 on the way. Reuters recently reported Apple is producing a lower-end version of the iPhone 4, expected to reach the market in late September. The iPhone 4 is currently only available in 16GB and 32GB versions. The new iPhone 4, which is being manufactured in Asia, could contain an 8GB flash drive.

With a wider, sharper screen, the iPhone 5 will be a smartphone that really amazes.  

Cheaper iPhone 4, Sprint Availability on the Way
News that Apple is producing a cheaper iPhone 4 is exciting iPhone fanatics and developers alike. App development is a huge business, and now even more iPhones will be released. Recently, the Associated Press reported  Sprint would sell the iPhone in September. iPhone hardware is currently only available through the AT&T and Verizon network.

When Does the iPhone 5 Release?
The iPhone 5 is apparently just weeks away from release. Some sources have even said that September 7 would be the release date. The device is rumored to have a better display and wider screen, among other great features.


Could this be the iPhone 5? Sadly no, it’s Photoshopped. But we can dream, can’t we?

One thing is for sure: Steve Jobs resignation hasn’t slowed down tech giant Apple, as insiders say the company has big plans for the next iPhone release. The dual release of a cheaper iPhone 4 and the iPhone 5 would make a lot of business sense.

When Will The iPhone 5 Come Out?

The next must-have gadget to help usher humanity into the future is merely weeks away from release. It’s the original smartphone – the iPhone. And rumors about its release have been running wild for months. We break down the rumors and take a look at the future of iPhone:


The iPhone 5 will be slimmer, although this artist’s rendition probably more likely resembles the iPhone 7. 

iPhone 5 will be slimmer and wider. A wider display will look great for movies and games. A Slimmer profile will give the iPhone 5 an even sleeker look.

iPhone 5 will include Qualcomm Chipsets. In the cellular industry there are two competing network technologies. Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM – founded in 1987) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). CDMA was a standard developed by Qualcomm. Qualcomm makes the GSM/CDMA chipset; AT&T uses a GSM network, while Verizon uses the CDMA network. The iPhone 5 is rumored to be equipped with a Qualcomm chip with a CDMA, GSM and UMTS baseband processor. This would allow for only one model of the iPhone 5 to be produced, lowering the cost of the hardware, at least for Apple.


The iPhone 8 might be have a crystal clear display – literally. Where will they hide the circuits? 

iPhone 5 will use a Apple’s A5 Processor. The A5 powers the iPad2. This means a much faster phone and faster loading speeds for media. The small screen may be underwhelming when playing high-definition video content, but it will look crystal clear. A faster processor also means more power for games.

We’re definitely looking forward to the iPhone 5 and the next generation after it.

iPhone 5 Release Date
So back to the original question: When will the iPhone 5 come out? Analysts that track iPhone and Apple’s manufacturing timelines point to a mid-late summer 2012 release. Here’s why: iPhones usually release in summer, this gives time for Apple and service providers to work out bugs before the holiday season buying rush. 

No matter if you’re just a phone geek or want to become an app developer, the iPhone 5 is an exciting upgrade to the world’s greatest smartphone.
