What are the other rumours about the iPhone 5?
According to a Wall Street Journal report, the next iPhone will use a new technology that makes the smartphone’s screen thinner. The report says that The technology, which integrates touch sensors into the LCD, makes it unnecessary to have a separate touch-screen layer.
A Reuters report says the next iPhone will come with a 19-pin connector port at the bottom instead of the proprietary 30-pin port “to make room for the earphone moving to the bottom”.
Apple’s new iPhone will also likely have a Quad-core processor, the A-6 according to rumours.
