Apple to Hold iPhone 5 Event on October 4

Author:admin   Date:2011-09-28

What the event will talk about?
Apple will be holding an iPhone event next Tuesday at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters, according to the report from CNET. Although Apple didn't specifically mention the iPhone 5 by name, speculation abounds that the company will unveil its next-generation iPhone at the event. As early as last week, AllThingsD reported that Apple would be holding a special event on October 4 that would be led by its new CEO Tim Cook. The publication's sources said that the new iPhone would go on sale "within a few weeks" after the announcement, pegging the release at late October. However, exactly what Apple might show off at the event, though, is unknown. Besides the new iPhone 5, Apple will likely discuss iOS 5 and its cloud-based service, iCloud or something others like the Facebook for iPad App, the cut of the iPod shuffle and iPod classic. But there is no doubt iPhone 5 would be the focus.

iPhone 5 Roundup
As iPhone 5 announcement event is just several days left, let's give a glance at the main difference between iPhone 5 and iPhone 4? Apple's tight-lipped approach towards iPhone 5's release has fueled a barrage of rumors related to the potential release date and specifications of iPhone 5. There has been no shortage of iPhone 5 rumors. Some are saying it will be a slightly better version of the iPhone 4. According to Apple, the newiPhone 5 will have all the features that you need to use it as the ultimate smartphone. The major difference between iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 will come in the form of dual core A5 processor, 8-mega pixel camera, iOS 5 and iCloud capability. Still others have said Apple's next iPhone will boast 4G connectivity, an edge-to-edge display, and several other major improvements.

Main Differences between iPhone 5 and iPhone 4
There are lots of reports on what the iPhone 5 will look like. But No one really knows what it exactly looks like now. But all reports on the iPhone 5 have suggested that it will be differences between iPhone 5 and iPhone 5, whether this will be achieved via a new side-to-side curved display, a different chassis, processor, camera, or something that no one has thought of.  

Bigger Retina Display
One of the big differences between iPhone 5 and iPhone 4 we'd expect to see is iPhone 5's bigger Retina Display. The iPhone 5 will no doubt feature a Retina Display. But what will differentiate the iPhone 5 from the iPhone 4 is the size of the display. We're hearing a lot of talk about the iPhone 5 featuring a curved side-to-side Retina Display, something that will increase the screen real estate up to around 4-inches.

Dual-core CPU iPhone 5
In terms of processing, we'd expect the iPhone 5 dual-core CPU of some kind, most likely Apple's A5 (Cortex A9) chip setup. That's the same set-up as the iPad 2, although it is entirely possible Apple has been cooking up something completely different. Still, the likelihood of a quad-core CPU appearing in the iPhone 5 is slim-to-none.
In terms of a GPU, current word on the street suggests that the iPhone 5 will be packing Imagination Technologies' PowerVR SGX543, as well as 1GB of RAM. Again, none of this has been officially confirmed, but we think it's a pretty safe bet so we're willing to agree on this front.

iPhone 5 8-Megapixel Camera
This aspect should be pretty straightforward. An 8-megapixel iPhone 5 cameraand a VGA or 1.3-megapixel front-facing iPhone 5 camera (although 2-megapixels is a distinct possibility) can be expected. This way, Apple has bumped up the imaging hardware and gives iPhone 4 users a reason to upgrade.

iPhone 5 iCloud and iOS 5
Reports on the Apple's working for the release of the iCound and iOS on October are overwhelming. It's unlikely that this would just coincide for the release of a new iPhone, but Apple's plan to build iOS5 and iCould into the new iPhone 5. Apple consider iOS is the most extensive software update ever for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, there is little possibility that Apple will not use it in the next iPhone. While with iClound built into iOS 5, it is impossible when you get iOS 5 without iCould. iClound stores your content and wirelessly pushes it to all your devices. “Wireless” is what the trend for Apple devices. In this point, Wireless charging is the possible for the new iPhone 5.
