Internet rumour mill is flowing overtime with speculations on what are claimed to be leaked cases of Apple iPhone 5. The source of the alleged case design is a UK-based blog, Mobile Fun, which claims to have got the designs from a Chinese case manufacturer. Some reports point it to Foxconn intelligence.
The case design points to a major redesign of the iPhone with a curved back and a larger screen. Rumours of similar design changes have been doing rounds for past several months. Reports also suggest that home button will go larger amd may support gesture-based controls. Earlier this year, a Chinese publication claimed that iPhone 5 will sport an improved antenna, 4 inch screen and NFC e-wallet.
Another report in AppleInsider says that that Apple intends to release its next-generation iPhone between September 6 to 15 with an initial shipment of 4 million units.
The report quoting Chinese-language China Times also claims that the rumored release of a next-generation iPad (popularly being called iPad 3) later this year is facing delays due to component issues. Several rumors have suggested that Apple may release another iPad later this year.
