iPhone 5?
 
I heard on the radio that the new iPhone comes out next week. But I haven't seen anything on here.

Surely there is something we can discuss.

Thoughts on the new iPhone?

You'll have to wait until Apple's September 12th event.

I'm just wanting a price drop on the 4S. My current 3G is a piece of shit. I don't think I'll get the 5.

Buehler445 09-05-2012 07:58 AM

Is that when they start advertising? Maybe I misunderstood, I thought that's when they hit the market?

My wife got a 4 (not S) for $99 a couple months ago with Verizon. It was the cheapest smartphone in the building. FWIW.

They'll do their big conference on September 12th. As of late, you've been able to order the phones immediately afterward for shipping, but they take a bit to actually get on the market and even longer to get into retail stores.

Apple treats the releases of their new products like some uber top secret technological revelation. It's stupid. They refuse to give any information about upcoming releases. They won't say what is being released, or exactly when. The only info from Apple is that they're having one of their normal "Events", and you have to watch it live that day to find out more.

But it's not hard to connect the dots. The new iPhone is expected Sept. 12th. It will come with iOS6, which is pretty ****ing awesome.

Apple's new Maps feature is the shit. 3D maps that look incredible. They dropped Google maps, and created their own. And I have to say it's really impressive. It also features free turn by turn navigation which works really well.

Here's a little demo of an early beta version:

There's other neat features too, like custom Do Not Disturb settings. Much more options in the Mail app, like individual signatures and such. And you can now Airplay anything from an iOS6 or Mountain Lion device. Which is pretty sweet combined with AppleTV.

Overall, I've really liked iOS6 so far.

While it's stupid to tech realists like yourself, but you've got to admit that it's a brilliant marketing ploy.

It took Steve Jobs taking a dirt nap to finally make a bigger screen. Even with the iphone 5 it wont be very big. If jobs were still alive he wouldnt let it be bigger than 3 inches. Literally only reason i refuse to buy an iPhone is cuz the screen is frustratingly dinky

The Day It Is Released I will Get One. Then My Four Year Old Boy Will Have My 32GB 4S.

I happen to think it's equally stupid that people would want a giant clunky battery draining screen on a phone. Get a damn tablet already..
