iPhone 5 Predictions: The Best And Worst

Apple's next iPhone will likely arrive in September or October. As the rumor machine cranks into high gear, we sort the solid predictions from the silly.

Likelihood: High

The next-gen iPhone will be longer, but not wider, than the 4S and have close to a 16:9 aspect ratio, reports say. Screen resolution will increase to 1136-by-640 pixels (up from 960-by-640), according to 9to5 Mac, which has convincing photos (see above) to support its case. A longer iPhone with a 4-inch screen adds extra pixels, which Apple may use to add a fifth row of icons to the home screen.

Not much of any value in this slide show, nothing new that hasn't already been speculated, and it is all speculation. Waste of time to go through the slides.

4G support? It will have 4G support, but it depends on where it is available to be of any value to you. Many areas are still 3G.

They will argue that the pixels are higher density (they are crammed together on a small screen..duh). I don't get why this brand is even brought up anymore, they have done nothing in over two years now.

Why would I want to replace my old 4.3" screen with an even SMALLER 4" screen????
I don't want to move backwards.
