We’ve been posting many articles about the release at last of the Verizon iPhone 4 and earlier today took a look at the Consumer Reports criticisms and asked if this was fair or not. However our attentions are already being drawn towards the Apple iPhone 5, thought to be due for release in June.
We’ve already looked at some new features that may be coming and then had more news that it could have a solar-powered back and an upgraded processor. Now more news tells us that it could, (along with the iPad 2), be an even slimmer device. Desire Athow over on ITProPortal tells of an Apple patent that has been granted.
The patent says that due to smaller conductive nodes which could be placed under the screen, it would be possible to make the next-generation iPhone even slimmer. Apparently this would also give the next iPhone and iPad an improved battery life as it saves power. If you want to check out more of the technical details head to an Apple Insider report by Neil Hughes, which explains more and includes diagrams.
Meanwhile Justin over on Reviews of Electronics asks the question that many are wondering. Will the ever-growing amount of leaks and rumors about the iPhone 5 hit sales of the Verizon iPhone coming out in February?
What are your thoughts on an even slimmer iPhone with improved battery power? We’d be interested to hear from you so why not send us your comments about this.
