Ahead of this summer’s expected new iPhone 5 overhaul, new reports have suggested that Apple’s next-generation smartphone was closely worked on by Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs.
Whilst rumours circulate around the expected specification and completely new design features of the upcoming Apple iPhone 4S, Bloomberg has cited “people with knowledge of the plans” in suggesting of the mooted iPhone 5 that “Apple co-founder Steve Jobs had worked closely on the redesigned phone before his death in October.”
The mastermind behind many of Apple’s most successful and popular products, such as the industry defining iPod, iPhone and iPad, Steve Jobs’ reported involvement with the forthcoming handset adds extra onus to its likely billing as the best ever smartphone.
Apple iPhone 5 Rumours
Widely expected to feature the first complete design overhaul since the 2010 released iPhone 4, Apple’s long rumoured new iPhone 5 has been repeatedly reported to be heading to market with a new, larger display to keep the handset in check with its fierce Android filled rivals such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X.
As well as its new 4-inch display, a flurry of iPhone 5 rumours have suggested the handset, which will likely touch down with an October release, will sport a new quad-core processor, improved camera optics and a revamped iOS 6 operating system.
