Oh, that’s clever, the 12 makes a 5 out of it’s shadow

I swear this is the last post until the announcement of the iPhone 5 on September 12th. That’s next Wednesday. We know this because everyone except for us was invited to Apple’s event. So the main thing we are positive of, is that Apple will start accepting pre-orders right away and that it will probably be available on the 21st. Now for the stuff that is most likely but not confirmed.

It is supposed to boast a 4″ screen at 16:9 aspect ratio. It won’t look much different than the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S except it will be elongated. Headphone jack dropped to the bottom of the phone, I love that. Because of this, Apple will have a smaller dock connector. This is causing everyone to complain the most. The front facing camera will be above the speaker instead of off to the side like the iPhone 4 and 4S.

iOS 6 is getting rid of Google Maps and replacing it with their own that is supposed to be faster and will have turn-by-turn directions. Passbook, I talked about in my last article, will store all of your loyalty member numbers so you can free up your keychain and throw those cards out of your wallet. Safari is getting updated with tabs instead of windows, or they’re just calling them tabs now. Plus syncing tabs across devices like Google Chrome.

Siri will be upgraded to not be as dumb. I mean it will do more stuff, like you will be able to double click the home button, wait for that chime and tell Siri to launch Angry Birds. Wait a few seconds and then her Siri say “I’m sorry ambulance, I don’t know anything about angry birds. Would you like me to do a search for you?” NO SIRI! “Did you say call the nursery?”

Like I said before, I probably won’t be picking it up. You know they just announced the Droid Razr Maxx HD today and that is looking pretty sexy right now. Except for the being Motorola and all that.
