Next iPhone was reportedly Steve Jobs' last big project Now that the iPhone 4S has been released it seems the never ending cycle of iPhone rumors is spinning up again.
Speculation is already flying about the next iPhone, which was supposedly Apple founder Steve Jobs' last project for the company.

According to CNET, multiple sources have indicated Jobs intended the iPhone 5 to be the major overhaul to the platform many people expected this time around, including a larger screen and LTE support.

It will, reportedly, be redesigned on the outside and be introduced at Apple's WWDC (Worldwide Developer Conference) next year.

The idea of Apple introducing a new iPhone so soon seems a little strange, but keep in mind every iPhone launch before this year has been at that event. In fact, it's entirely possible the timing of this year's iPhone launch had more to do with manufacturing difficulties than anything else.

Keep in mind this is nothing more than rumor and speculation for the moment, but of course, given Apple's policy of strict secrecy, that's about all we can expect until a new iPhone is officially announced.

No. This was his last project.

If the iPhone5 was his last project, we will have to wait until at least the iPhone6 for anything good.

Have to agree with the other posters, tying jobs to iphone5 is a nice piece of marketing. I'm surprised they aren't going to try and get a little more mileage out of his legacy by connecting him to several "last" projects. Whether you like Jobs or not he was a leader, and I expect that future apple products will suffer. Good or not, the fervent apple fan base will come running.


If your fish seems sick, put it back in the water.

larger screen and LTE support?

no thank you Apple, you already have my friends boasting about their "4G" speeds on a 3G phone. Considering we don't have 4G in our area......
