    Hey all thought I would share some information that I got from a foxconn employee. My uncle use to work with foxconn and his friend who currently works there gave him some info on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4 (mainly cause I was sharing my thoughts on my predictions, so he called him to see what he knew.) Now I don't have any written sources but these info listed below are what he told my uncle.

    No iPhone 4 white. (they aren't even building them so that's that; if the iPhone 4 white does end up coming out then I guess that confirms that these information are most likely fake)

    iPhone 5 information

    -Redesign (how shocking knowing Apple loved the iPhone 4 design) back of the iPhone will be curved (probably like the iPhone 3G or ipad2)
    -Same 3.5" screen (makes sense so the resolution does not change for apps)
    -Both white and black iPhones
    -Improved sensor (I forgot the name...gyroscope? The sensor for tilting etc on games will be improved)
    -no lte

    Now he didn't announce the release date but my uncle predicts September or October. Again this part is just a prediction.
    My uncles friend (foxconn worker) says that the iPhone 5 does not look too great although thats just his personal opinion.

    There will be more information in June and July so if the iPhone 4 white never comes out, then I will keep this post updated.

    First of all, the iPhone screen is 3.5" right now according to apples web site so the screen can't be the same if its 3.2" :cool:

    Yeah I had 3.5 written down fixed my spelling error. Thanks for pointing that out!

    To celtic, the reason he called was cause I was discussing my predictions.

    I understand that, perfectly fine. But what I'm not going to believe is that you actually got top-secret information from an uncle.

    Not just an uncle...a super uncle :p
    I got the info from a employee at foxconn. Honestly I don't believe it until it's announced by apple, but I just thought it'd be interesting to post what I heard. If it wasn't from an foxconn employee, I wouldnt even bother.

    And this is also what everyone says when they post something like this. Again, believe it or don't believe - that's your choice. I'm going with the latter and I didn't even read the entire OP

    A highly doubt a Foxconn employee would know what the iPhone 5 would look like, as production hasn't even started yet. Just following the latest rumors, if it's true the iPhone 5 will have a September release date, production will not start 5 months in advance. That is just absurd. I'm sure Apple isn't even completely set on what they're going to release yet. They probably have a few different models they are deciding on. This is silly.

    LOL nice!

    As for the story, I'm sure he speaks from the heart. However, I'm thinking he is getting second/third hand information. Anyone that has information on the next gen iPhone or iDevice DOES NOT speak about it unless authorized. They will be hit with a lawsuit so fast if they do. I'm sorry, but this is one of those things that's accidently found. It's just not information freely given to other people who aren't "read into" a Secret program. But then again, i could be way wrong. :)

    And why would you think that? Just because a iPhone 4 (white) was leaked in Europe, it doesn't mean its a Europe edition iPhone.
    I just hope that the next iPhone is as easy to open as the iPhone 4.

    What do you mean easy to open?

    I think that because the US hasn't seen a single thing pop up about it. And if it is going to come out in 4 days now, why hasn't Apple said anything at all?

    Nah, there has to be a white version coming in the US. It just hasn't been leaked yet.

    easy to open as in taking off the back cover. I wanted to replace the back cover with a different color since its so easy to open the iphone 4.

    That'll be the same white iPhone 4 that's been sold by a Vodafone store in the UK and earmarked for a April 27th release?

    :rolleyes:

    Ah got it. My girlfriend really wants the white because her 3GS one died last morning. Getting the black one today and hopefully exchanging in 4 days.

    Is there a difference between the official white iPhone 4 and the one from the conversion kit?

    I thought apple didn't start producing iPhones until a couple of months before release? So a sept/oct release means production starts about june/july?
