Like death and taxes, iPhone rumours are an inevitable part of our modern lives. Every year, we expect to read dozens of speculative articles, posts and tweets about what Apple may, or may not, include in the annual handset refresh — most of which turn out to be more fantasy than fact.
This year, one Apple aficionado has compiled all the rumours thus far, and turned them into a slick animation, showing what he believes Apple is likely to reveal. It includes the usual suspects; a larger screen, 4G connectivity, iOS 6 and a 12-megapixel camera. Two interesting inclusions are a physical redesign, based on the idea that Apple will employ a speaker grille around the edge of the phone, and a Thunderbolt docking port.
There is no one, except Apple employees, who could confirm how accurate this concept is, but we, at CNET Australia, are hoping he's wrong about the speakers. While the audio could sound better, this is a very ugly-looking way to achieve it.
