Well looks like it will be called iPhone 5. Almost Every tech site just caught a leak when you search on apples site of a press release for iPhone 5, new nano, new touch, and a new itunes. I also read that it makes sense to call it iPhone 5 when they still have other iPhones out in the market. It will get confusing when, down the line you have 3 iPhones all called "new" iPhone.
yeeeeeeeeeea, I am still not convinced about iphone 5 name. It doesnt make any sense. apple just dont name products like microsoft. i agree with @DaveBinM
I guess it is I PAD MINI !
WOW! 4" Display is the standard of Budget Phones according to current standards.
Im guessing that its 5 announcements: new iPhone, Shuffle, Nano, Touch, and iOS 6 or maybe a new iPod classic?
I REALLY hope to see some refreshed computers along with any iPhones or iPods they are updating, too. I just hope they won't announce the iPad mini, because that is a waste of resources.
I agree with most the rumors mentioned by the OP expect for a couple differences:
1. It'll be the new iPhone, not the iPhone 5, just like the iPad 3 was just called the new iPhone. I guess they realized it's not gonna sound so cool when they reach something like the iPhone 18! :-/
2. I'm hoping for no iPad Mini as it'll add more work to iOS development, which was aimed at simplicity with resolutions. But I'm 50/50 with my expectation of this announcement.
4 inch screen, thinner, more memory, A6 chip, better front and back camera, improved LED flash, and I just hope the back is not two toned.
My thoughts are that it could be 5 new devices; iPod Shuffle, Nano, Classic, Touch, and a new iPhone. Which will be called "The New iPhone". In any case, I'm ordering the new iPhone, whatever it's called. :)
just waiting for the new iphone. obviously it's named iphone 5.
Wow. Totally missed the shadows.
The only safe prediction I am making is thousands of preorders/sales on the 12th.
