iPhone 5: Minor update, called iPhone 4S & landing 21 Oct, says source

iFans hoping for a game-changing handset in the shape of iPhone 5 will be disappointed, an insider source has revealed.

According to an unnamed personage familiar with matters down in Cupertino cited by Digital Life, the handset will instead be dubbed the iPhone 4S – chiming with other recent rumours – and will be an iterative upgrade of the iPhone 4 rather than a major update.

The sole changes are the inclusion of the same A5 dual core processor that features in the iPad 2, a camera that's beefed-up from five megapixels to eight megapixels and the addition second antenna that improves the signal and avoid a repeat of last year's dropped calls farrago.

Otherwise, the handset will remain totally unchanged from the iPhone 4, even retaining the 3.5-inch super-high density retina display that most tech watchers had pegged as a dead cert to be on board.

And in a final, supposed BIG REVEAL, the site also claims that the phone won’t land in shops until October 21st in the UK, after Apple showcases it to the world early next month - most probably on October 4th, according to whispers doing the rounds elsewhere.
