The iPhone 5 will be the last Apple product with significant input from Steve Jobs, an analyst claims, in news that all-but assures the device cult status among Macolytes.
According to Ashok Kumar of Rodman & Renshaw, the recently deceased Apple founder was “intimately involved" in the development of the handset at every stage from “concept to design”.
And it seems that while the iPhone 4S has been pegged as a disappointing update by some tech watchers, the iPhone 5 will be anything but.
Along with the larger screen, which many had forecast for the 4S, the iPhone 5 will also rock a slimmer design and will feature 4G network support for super-fast mobile web browsing at speeds significantly over 100Mb.
4G connectivity in territories where the technology is up and running had been widely tipped for the 4S, adding to the somewhat muted response when it was confirmed it will support 3G HSPA+ connectivity only, offering theoretical speeds of up to 14.4Mb.
