    So posting these here, and not on the site, because I can't believe these are real or based on knowledge. But it should keep some hope alive for those who really want to believe.

    Hey Arn!
    So, I'm curious, what's your reasoning for thinking it'll only be 4S? It's pretty clear to me that they're releasing both. The iTunes evidence is just more evidence that they'll release a 4S and a 5. Because why wouldn't you name your 5th generation iPhone running A5 on iOS 5 the iPhone 5?

    What do you think of my theory: If Apple was only going to release a 4S, wouldn't it have used legit news sources like The Loop or AllthingsD to shoot down all the hype going on about iPhone 5, to make sure they don't disappoint come Oct 4th? (Kinda like how they did with shooting down Sept 7th announcement rumors, and the whole no new hardware in WWDC 2011).

    I don't understand this. There are so many conflicting reports, but who would waste so much print by posting these if they weren't genuine?

    But great find regardless, it gives me hope for an iPhone 5.

    Indeed it is and they claim they will sell dual mode LTE/HSPA + devices.

    I doubt Steve jobs would put his name on a ad.

    Looks like 4S for prepaid and 5 for Contract to me

    This was my theory as well. Apple usually "leaks" important information to people like Walt Mossberg to manage expectations. That has not been done here. In fact, they seem to be reveling in the rumor mill grinding into such a fervor. They would not allow this to happen unless they had the goods to back it up. Expect a 4S and a 5.

    Click on website get money. Simple as that. I'm not sure if this is true but some of the articles are clearly click bait. I don't see how carriers would be able to post information regarding an unreleased device which remains a closely guarded secret. Wouldn't the company in question get in trouble for releasing this info?

    Wouldn't companies "prepare" for both possible outcomes? Have material ready for either iphone 5 or 4s just in case one or the other comes out (or both).. think NBA Finals T-Shirt makers

    So one outcome is a prepaid phone and the other outcome is a 4G iPhone 5? That makes no sense.

    Legit Telstra

    This style is part of Telstra's entire new campaign. It's perhaps one of the biggest changes since the early 2000s, with NextG and alike.

    Regarding the quirky iPhone messages, chances are, they may well be an 80% chance of being real. But then again, some people do mockups really REALLY well.

    Here's to an iPhone 5!


    (I do not work for Telstra).

    Ah, you have a point. I missed that bit about pre-paid in the ad.

    hopefully this goes along with the idea that apple will be going for the cheaper market as well soon

    just hoping because i wanna see a 4 inch screen iPhone 5 with a couple changes

    and also ... id think if there wasn't a 5 coming out the 4S would be called the 5

    These ads are definitely fake.

    First up, the colours Telstra are using for their campaign are all pop colours (not dull colours like the green, maroon and moss ones shown in the last 3). If you go on their Facebook page ( there are 6 images along the top which show the colours they are using.

    Secondly, the person who made these did not pay enough attention to detail to Telstra's ads. As noticed in the real ad shown (and observed in all other real ads) there are stripes, two stripes on either side and a large one in the middle. The colours of the stripes always go from lightest to darkest (like on a colour gradient), however in the fake ads, the colours go from light to dark then back to light.

    They're fake.

    Telstra and all carriers cannot use "iPhone" without appropriate capitalisation and branding. Apple have very strict rules about it.

    The Steve Jobs one is particularly poor.
