Do the Apples ever stop falling? Despite Apple’s fairly limited product spectrum of one smartphone, one tablet etc, etc, they never stay off the radar for long, releasing new odds and sods a couple of times annually (just enough to make us thirsty for more without having to wait so long we get bored and wander off somewhere!)
Our iPhone rumour roundup is still very he-said-she-said, but here are a few common points to think about when you sell iPads, laptops and magic beans through our sell for cash service.
- Release dates vary from June 2012 (at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference) to October 2012 (in time for my mother’s birthday and early Christmas present lists!) Our sell for cash rates are predicted to be even better this year, which means more cash for your festive upgrade,too!
- Liquid metal is predicted to be the next big thing for smartphones. According to a bunch of rumour websites, the new iPhone 5 (or iPhone the Fifth or whatever it’ll be called) could be housed in an alloy of titanium, nickel, copper, zirconium and a few other metals. The alloy apparently feels like glass, is scratch resistant (as opposed to saying “scratch resistant” but clearly carrying the battle scars of pockets and handbags) and super strong.
- David Hseih (DisplaySearch analyst) reckons Apple are leaning in the direction of in-cell display technology; great news for Japanese manufacturers and suppliers of the stuff! In-cell tech basically means the new iPhone could be mega-thin to keep up with the likes of Samsung’s Note – a fantastic device with great specs and a far sleeker feel than the brick-like iPhone 4S.
- A 4” screen would put Apple back in the big boys’ screen class. We’re big fans of big screens, so an iPhone 5 with a tasty 4” screen might even tug on the heart strings of our HTC and Samsung Note devotees here in the office!
- Mac rumour website, InRumour.com, reckons the new iPhone could be waterproof. U.S company, Liquipel, posted a YouTube video of an iPhone 4 playing a video whilst submerged underwater. We don’t find this a very credible rumour in terms of standard Apple releases, but the company seems to be on the level for private commissions and stuff.
