8 iPhone 5 Rumors: Best And Worst

Apple reveals its latest iPhone -- possibly two of them -- on Sept. 10. We separate the bogus iPhone rumors from the smart predictions.

There's plenty of visual evidence showing that Apple will break from its traditional black/white combo and get a little crazy with its newest iPhones. The low-end iPhone 5C will be particularly spectrum-friendly, with a rainbow of soft shades seemingly targeted at people who love marshmallow Peeps. The premium iPhone 5S is more button-down, adding only a new "champagne" gold shell and perhaps a grey (or graphite) version.

re: 8 iPhone 5 Rumors: Best And Worst
A former colleague of mine recently raised the point on Twitter that the rumor buzz about phone colors seems silly in this day and age when almost every iphone user can get a case in any color of the rainbow, personalized with pictures even. Does phone color even matter? Almost everyone puts the iPhone in a case.

Agreed. Apple tends to declare a standard and hope its choice becomes so rather than waiting until there's industry consensus.

Why would Apple, the company that had a weird non-standard connector on all of its phones up until last year and then chose a different non-standard connector to replace it, care which wireless charging technology becomes the industry standard.

I'm curious to see how the (possible) finger print scanning feature would affect iPhone use in terms of how much secure information people are comfortable storing on their phones.
