Size and Shape
There are always grainy images making their way around the internet concerning what the new iPhone will look like. Many of them are just enlarged or decreased through questionable editing, but there's no way for us to know whether they're real or not because Apple refuse to comment. We hear that the next iPhone will be of a completely new design, akin to the 3GS's evolution into the 4,rather than the intra-model upgrades. We're seeing a lot of rival smart phones going bigger with their screens, and Apple are currently one of the smallest models sitting at a 3.5in. There are a lot of rumours that Apple will take a brave step in manufacturing a 5 inch screen model, but there are fears this would alienate previous models.
The casing will also have to be changed to satisfy the user's lust for innovation. Scratch-proof and finger print-proof materials have allegedly been employed since the beginning of Apple's foray into telecommunications but existing iPhones are definitely neither. The California based company are said to be experimenting with military and aerospace grade glass types to achieve this.
It's such a simple and seemingly inconsequential detail but there is a frenzy about what the next model will be called. So far we've seen the original iPhone be upgraded to the 3G and the 3GS. Then the 4 came along with a recent upgrade to the 4S. Logically speaking, with a new aesthetic design we'll be expecting the name to be released as the 'iPhone 5.' But since the new iPad was concisely named 'the new iPad,' there are fears will go down the same marketing alley and not sate the appetites of all of us wanting an identifiable name.
The aforementioned iPad is currently one of the only devices to be making use of 4G LTE technology. It would seem odd and more than a little counter-intuitive for Apple to shun integrating these capabilities into the new iPhone. But, we all know that one of the biggest downfalls of the iPhone is the battery life. The increased bandwidth and download speed of an LTE device will surely please crowds, but what will they think when they see their daily charges becoming bi-daily, or tri-daily? With most countries using different frequencies for LTE, will Apple see the production of different modems as a cost-effective exercise?
Smartphones are rapidly catching up to Tablets in terms of their hardware capabilities, and for a company leading the way in both fields; there's nothing to say that Apple won't stuff their newest phone with the latest tech. Recent reports are staggering in their predictions, noting that the iPhone is more likely than not going to feature a quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. This would make the phone significantly more powerful than some netbooks and older laptops on the market today. Much like in automotives, putting a huge engine in a car doesn't make it perform better. In vehicles, you need to be able to get the power to the road. With the iPhone, the problem will be running the hardware from a battery without overloading or simply draining it constantly.

The film will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time. Five Star Institute's Mark Hulme is financing and will produce the pic, which is skedded to start production in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his hit CBS series.
Sony is also producing a film based on the Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs. Last November, Aaron Sorkin was rumored to be 'strongly considering' writing the Steve Jobs movie for Sony. No word on whether that title has gone into production yet.

According to a source familiar with Apple's product distribution channels, the iPad 2 WiFi + 3G is constrained. Supply shortages span beyond Apple's own distribution channels, though, as major retailers are reporting "out of stock" status for the 3G iPad 2. This includes, but is likely not limited to, Carphone Warehouse and Orange in the United Kingdom. Carphone Warehouse is reporting shortges of five out of six of their 3G iPad 3 models (everything but the black 64GB unit), and Orange UK is reporting shortages of half of the 3G iPad 2 SKUs: both 32GB models and the white 64GB unit.
Interestingly, Wi-Fi iPad 2 supplies are not yet constrained which may indicate that Apple plans to keep that model around at a discounted price. It's suggested that the 3G iPad may be discontinued in favor of an iPad that supports both CDMA and GSM on the same chip.
Apple is expected to announce the iPad 3 during the first week of March.

Apple is not happy about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone and it wants sales banned in the U.S. Why are they so mad that they want sales banned? They claim that it violates four Apple patents. The four patents are a “data tapping” patent, a patent involving Siri and unified search, a new slide-to-unlock patent, and a word-completion patent for touch-screen entry of text.
