The iPhone 5 is now in production, reports claim, ahead of its mooted release date around September or October.
According to “industry sources in Taiwan” cited by Digitimes, Apple’s manufacturing partner Pegatron has already begun making the next-generation handset, which is already shaping up to be the most anticipated gadget ever to have come out of the House of Cupertino.
The news chimes with a similar report from Japanese Apple blog Macotakara, which also claimed that the handset has advanced from putative prototype to full production.
Excitably billed by iWatchers as the final iDevice that Steve Jobs worked closely on, the iPhone 5 is reportedly home to a larger four-inch screen – up from the current model’s 3.5-inch display – and is twice as powerful under the bonnet thanks to a brawny quad-core processor.
Testimonies from tech deepthroats also suggest that the handset will sport 4G support for super fast browsing in territories where the network technology is available and will feature a taller, but thinner form factor.
