Report Claims Steve Jobs Worked Closely On the Next iPhone
Rumors about the next iPhone are piling up, building the buzz, just like they did before the iPhone 4S launch event and more recently before the London Samsung Galaxy S III unveiling. The most controversial topic though seems to be the screen size of the next Apple smartphone, with The Wall Street Journal and Reuters already weighing in on possibilities of a four-inch display diagonal.
According to Bloomberg, who seems to confirm previous reports with their own — citing “three people with knowledge of the plans” — the late Steve Jobs “had worked closely on the redesigned phone before his death in October”. This information is yet unconfirmed and is coming from one of the aforementioned three people but it is a solid possibility nonetheless. Since Apple broke their release cycle with the iPhone 4S last year, we’re expecting the iPhone 5 (the Next iPhone or whatever the name will be) to be launched sometime in the last quarter (with some reports and analysts betting on October). Aside from a larger screen, a redesign is also rumored which would be a first after the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S (but a must in case the larger display rumors turn out to be true.)
