The piece is estimated to sell between 500,000 - 700,000 pounds ($777,000 - 1.1 million) when it is auctioned in London on October 13. Photo: Reuters. The next generation iPhone might be named as the new iPhone, reported on March 7, citing a "reliable source" that had informed it two weeks prior to the launch of the new iPad.
Instead of naming the new tablet iPad 3, iPad HD or iPad 2S as widely speculated, Apple simply referred to it as "new iPad." It means the tech giant is ready to chop the number suffix off, when it names any new iDevice. Accordingly, the next iPhone could be called the "new iPhone."
Nevertheless, many readers can't help wonder why 9to5 Mac waited till the release of the new tablet to disclose what its source had informed it, despite coming to know of it two weeks prior to the launch of the new iPad. 9to5Mac Photo: Reuters The most recent rumors indicate that the new iPhone might be unveiled at Worldwide Developers Conference in June. However, some people don't agree, because it will give the current iPhone a very short product circle - only around 8 months. The anticipated device might be unveiled around September, or most likely in October.
Some people are also wondering whether the new iPhone will be released this year at all. As Apple incorporated only minor changes in the iPhone 4S last year, the tech giant might now be making radical redesign of the next iPhone, which consumes time. In other words, it is possible that Apple could make fans wait until 2013 before it unveils the new iPhone. What do you think? Leave your comment below. Photo: Reuters
