to a Japan-based blog, the next generation iPhone 5 will make a
release in the coming months pretty likely.
The blog Macotakara had accurately expected the release date of Apple iPhone 4S last year. While iPhone fans expected iPhone 4S would be launched in June last year, Macotakara issued a report that Apple would release iPhone 4S in October and mass production of the product would be in summer this year. Facts proved the correctness of Macotakara. So it seems that the six generation iPhone (iPhone 5) will adopt the same schedule.
The blog goes on to say that the back of the new iPhone has both glass and aluminum. "In the area where aluminum is not used, there is glass". This contrasts with previous reports that claim the next iPhone will have an all-aluminum back like the iPad.
By comparison, the iPhone 4S sports glass coverings on the front and back.
The iPhone 5's most anticipated feature -- which has been widely reported -- is a larger 4-inch class Retina display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Previous iPhones have had a 3.5-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio.
Apple has announced the new operating system iOS 6 in WWDC 2012, fans can glance at some functions of the next generation iPhone.
