Probably not, but why would you think it will suck. We haven't had any reason to think one way or another so why default to glass is half empty? I am optimistic because 1) Apple makes excellent software, and 2) It is highly unlikely that they would consider it ok to take a major step backwards on such an important app. Personally, I'm also quite happy to see Google getting kicked off at least part of the gravy train.

I Hope...

the new maps program fixes the ***** COMPASS!!! Which has NEVER worked! Why is this thing even in here? Also, if you are not going to fix the compass,at least let the map orient in the direction you are moving like any other GPS.

When I switch on my iphone or buy the next one, do I really need to know this?

Ready for a black 128GB and everything faster, done

The picture in the article looks like the open map. Very basic. It could be that the iOS in the prototype that was given out doesnt contain the new map app, or you will not be the only one

One of the new apps they had used a different mapping service, and the design of the maps looks really old and horrible, and apparently the information is out of date and not as precise.

Just tap twice on the location icon.

The top and bottom bars make it look like crap, but I wish 9to5Mac would post more pictures of iOS 6 besides the maps app.

Why would Apple release a crappy maps app?

Even if they spend a ton of time making their own mapping service and it sucks, they could stick with Google Maps until their own app is good enough.

Re: the design of the back

I agree the design of the back is not so great visually, but what if there was a "hardware" reason behind this choice? Something like a "Magic Trackpad" area?

with all those "leaks" coming out so early i wonder if we'll get to see the new iPhone during the summer and not fall. it would kinda make sense considering that the iPhone 4 users will be able to upgrade soon but on the other hand the devs need time to get their apps iOS5x or iOS6 ready

Apple wouldn't compromise design for hardware. They haven't, and they won't (I hope). More than likely these are just prototypes.

If this part is part of the A5 family and it isn't the A5X or the 32nm A5, I'm betting it's a quad core Cortex A9 CPU. The 543 variant is probably some optimizations or custom hardware added for the 32nm processor. Sony got a custom variant of the 543 too for the PS Vita.

enough with the controlled leaks from apple about the iphone. It looks like crap anyway.

Where the heck are the retina panels and the macbook pro shells? Not to mention the mac pros? Are we just gonna get them a few hours before the wwdc?

Why not do the new iPhone update and iOS 6 update at the same time?

As the current design is entirely glass, and the magic trackpad is glass it shouldn't require a change of material. The new material's only potential benefit is enhanced durability over glass, well, or something else- but not a trackpad surface.

Yep, you're the only one.

Also, why are you bringing up something from a few threads back in a thread about the new chip/processor?

While anything will be better than the A4 in the iPhone 4, I'm really hoping there is still a noticeable performance increase in the new iPhone over the 4S. There are still little processing hiccups in iOS that a faster processor would help with.

I'd prefer larger storage options.

Yeah. Me too.. I love google maps, the traffic data and that it's uniform on my Mac and iOS devices. I'm apprehensive of the change. Apple seems best at changing things for the worst when they're working just fine or have people that really rely on them (iMovie, Final Cut, dropping firewire, etc). They seem to then try to fix it later.
