September is the time for iPod. I don't think that they will launch both iPhone and iPod touch at the same time. Any idea?

Final testing, you say?

They didn't launch iPhone in September also. What's wrong for them to release the iPhone and iPod Touch with more or less similar specs at the same time?

I don't think the supply chain can handle it.

Apple and their manufacturing partners had severe availability issues when the iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 released last year, three months apart. Apple basically sells three iPhones for every two iPod touches. I simply don't believe that they can ramp production to launch both products within a month of each other.

The biggest problem is availability of the display parts followed closely by silicon. The supply demands are mitigated by a staggered iPad/iPhone/iPod touch release schedule. Cramming everything together doesn't help the situation.

Btw, nice mockup. Exactly the same as last year's mockup almost. Haha.



Terrible idea, to say the least.
haha. be honest... Say you weren't a tad bit disappointed in iOS 5?

the one thing i would love is a 4" amoled screen with retina resolution. that would be perfect, and this tech already exists.
But i doubt Apple will humour me...

No different from any other technological equipment. Technology moves so fast, nearly anything you buy in that sense is out-dated very quickly. Phones are no different. Just sayin'

I think that launching the iPhone and iPods at almost the same time would cause extreme burden on factories that can't even churn out iPad 2s in time.

You know, as much as I do love the back of the iPhone 4, I think I'm inclined to agree with you on this one.....following the lead of the iPad and iPod Touch back designs would probably be good...for both thinness and sturdiness i would think.

Also, I would appreciate consistency in Apple's iOS design line. It makes sense to do so.

I think they have different factories for different devices (or at least separate manufacturing processes).

Regardless Apple will have to change something about the general appearance to "show" consumers" it is different. Doesn't have to be major but just something.

BTW if I hear one more 3GS user complain about being on their last leg I will scream. Try a 3G in iOS4.
Considering what I have been reading the iPhone 4 is going to be the ipad 1 to the iPhone 5, so I must have one for sure. Anyway I really am tired of the black one after seen first hand the white iPhone at the Apple Store oh so .

Yep, I can see them tying this in with the release of iOS5; announcing new iPhone with iOS5, which is also now available to iOS4 users.

Sony already has an 11 inch TV and Samsung I believe had up to a 21 inch so I don't think think that is the issue, its more about the price and OLED is expensive right now but give it a few more years and we will see it in all its glory, maybe 2013 either way I don't think its going to be to long before we start to see it.

Just not for the iPhone 5 or even iPad 3. Now a big deal there are plenty of toys for me to play with.

I think iOS 5 is awesome and huge!! We have not seen all of the features. We heard of other features, but not all of them. I think the iPhone will be a big improvement as well. My wish list: bigger screen, bigger storage (64 or more), LTE v2, nfc, improve camera components, a surprise that is unknown!!

The current screen will still be retina even if it expands to 4", keeping the current resolution. But I doubt it will be amoled.

Part of me would love to do that. I love the design of the iPhone 4, but am increasingly drawn to the Windows Phone 7 OS. But don't like the look of any of the handsets.

Bootcamp for iPhone anyone?

That looks decently nice,

But I really love the iP4 design, so I HOPE sticks with a '4S' and keeps the same design.... !

Hardware changes are always possible, but I think we now know all the software changes that are coming in iOS5 except perhaps a few really minor ones:
