With the iPhone 4S already out on the market an increasing number of Apple experts and fans are beginning to turn their attention towards next summers release, the iPhone 5 and with good reason, it turns out Steve Jobs was largely responsible for the concept and final design behind the new device.
According to a financial analysis report acquired by CNET the iPhone 5:
“Was the last project that Steve Jobs was intimately involved with from concept to final design.”
That same report says the phone will likely be slimmer than the iPhone 4S while also offering a larger screen and 4G data connections.
Another source says that while the device will feature many aspects that have made the iPhone series so popular it will also feature a new design that’s sure to become a “cult classic” considering it was the last large scale project Steve Jobs intimately worked on.
According to the analysts:
“This is a very large project that Steve dedicated all of his time to,” and “He was not that involved in the 4S because his time was limited.”
It’s still not clear when the iPhone 5 will be released however it will likely be announced near the Apple Developer’s Conference next summer.
Do you believe that Steve Jobs’ involvement in the creation of the iPhone 5 from concept to finished product is going to make it even more popular than the iPhone 4S? Keep in mind that the iPhone 4S destroyed sales records by pre-ordering more than one million units in the first week of ordering availability.
