We are, if the rumours are to be believed, only weeks away from an official unveiling of the next iPhone.But a phone company has leaked what it claims is the official front cover of Apple’s soon-to-be-released upgrade to its iPhone range, which appears to confirm a larger screen for the bestseller.This could be Apple’s response to other phone companies, who increasingly provide larger ‘widescreen’ displays for their top models.
Phone repair shop UBreakIFix.com released two images of the ‘iPhone 5′. It follows rumours that the next iPhone will be thinner than ever, with a thickness of 7.6mm, making it two millimetres thinner than the iPhone 4S.
It is believed the iPhone 5 will be announced on September 12, with pre-orders opening immediately.The phone itself is expected to launch just over a week later on September 21.
However, Apple fans in the UK may have to wait another two weeks until October 5 before getting their hands on a phone.
Apple are notoriously secretive and have not even revealed what they will call their next iPhone. It could be ‘iPhone 5′, or it may follow this year’s spring iPad launch and simply be called ‘the new iPhone’.
Last week, more component pictures appeared to confirm the controversial new ‘dock connector’, the power and data port which has been redesigned – leaving older charger cables and docks useless without adapters.
