Last year, the launch of iPhone 4S disappointed all Apple fans as everyone expecting iPhone 5 to come out. Since there are no major improvements from iPhone 4 to iPhone 4S, many custoemrs switched to Samsung. After a year, rumors say that its unveil will be held on 21st September and probably will go on sale in October.
With the Wall Street Journal reported that Apple has recently applied a special patent for its new product, people are now guessing iPhone 5 will have a slimmer screen that up to 4 inches, a little lighter in weight and it will come with a 19-pin connector port at the bottom instead of the proprietary 30-pin port.
You are wondering all previous accessories for iPhone cannot be used for iPhone 5? Yes, this act of apple has been explained by Robert Scoble, there are few reasons for iPhone 5 to move to smaller and smarter dock connector.
Smarter Cable & dock Connector for iPhone 5
New design of the cable will included chips in each end of iPhone 5 cables to examine whether the device is Apple licensed. Obviously, third party phone accessory companies without a license will not be able to make iPhone 5 adaptable accessories as smart cable and dock connector could prevent hazards of using poorly built accessories. However, people with a stretching budget will not perceive this as good news.
iPhone 5 goes Water-proof & Thinner
The new dock connector of iPhone 5 will be designed as highly water-proof since smaller recessed port is less likely to suffer from a spill or splash than current design of iPhone 4. Besides, everyone is expecting a thinner iPhone 5 with a bigger screen compare to Samsung S series. Rumors suggest iPhone 5 will be under 8mm thin, wow, sounds iPhone 5 will have a really cool outlook!
Do you think Siri is good enough? I don’t but probably it’s because of my poor speaking. To improve how Siri hears user command in order to provide a more accurate response, the new microphone will go with HD Voice which a better voice quality is ensured definitely.
Like it or not, the new design will definitely differentiate iPhone 5 from previous model. DSstyles will keep your posted on Apple’s move and the latest news about iPhone 5. Just stay tuned!
