4G LTE iPhone being tested by carriers? Rumor suggests carriers testing 4G iPhone, though not necessarily iPhone 5.
Boy Genius Report claimed on Monday that Apple's U.S. carrier partners are testing a new prototype iPhone that connects to high-speed Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks. The claim comes from images said to be code from the firmware of an internal iOS test build issued to Apple carriers.

The firmware's .plist (property list) file is where the the indications are found. A key tag allegedly found references, "connected mode LTE Intra-frequency Measurement."

Rumors of Apple pursuing 4G have been around for some time, though the company has said it doesn't need to bring out a 4G iPhone yet. Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook previously said that the company was happy with the performance of its 3G handsets and is in no rush to make the next step.

Why would they release current technology in their phone when people will still pay a premium for old technology with an apple logo on it.

First........Iphones are so boring and plain jane. I guess comparable to the lack of imagination and simpleton state of mind that their owners typically have.

Second.......the key word here is "rumor". Probably going to be a 4GS with little difference. We'll see in a month but I'm guessing that 5 is coming out next year and 4GS will have minor changes.

hearme0,

That first statement of yours sounds like something a 1st grader would say. No, I don't own an iPhone....so tell us what phone is it that you own that makes you a super smart person? There will always be "the next best thing" and people are going to buy it.

How long have we waited for the Motorola Droid Bionic and the Samsung Galaxy S II? Sounds like you must have some inside information on what Apple is doing...hey wait, you just said that "simpletons" use Apple products, so do tell why you would even care what the rumors or the outcome of the new iPhone is to be.
