With new chipsets that the iPhone 5 may integrate, the ability for iPhone 5 to work across more carriers is becoming a higher probability. The Qualcomm MDM6600 chipset would allow the iPhone 5 to have compatibility with both Verizon and ATT’s 4G and 3G networks. According to BGR, Apple has already begun testing iPhones for T-Mobile, in particular the iPhone 4S. Other hardware upgrades include additional internal antennas that can serve as an international phone for both CDMA and GSM. Photo: Reuters
The Qualcomm LTE (Long Term Evolution) chips are expected to be integrated into the iPhone 5, allowing for compatibility with carriers offering 4G speeds. The LTE is becoming a standard for mobile networks as it upgrades to faster speed from the current 3G platform. Rumors have said that Apple has been picky with what type of LTE chips to install into the iPhone 5 in order to maintain a less bulky phone with lighter weight.

Apple integrated Twitter into its new iOS 5 and is looking to make online socializing even more convenient through its updated mobile OS. The iOS 5 brings an even friendlier user interface for sharing text messages, links, pictures and videos. Twitter features that were deeply built into the mobile OS include auto completing hashtags, previewing a photo before a post, automatic shortening of urls, and a feed of latest trend topics.
