Apple has announced the possible release of iPhone 5 in September of this year. Recent reviews of its predecessor, the iphone 4 have convinced us that it was and still is a great smartphone. Although problems like less than 24 hours of battery life from a charge, no Adobe Flash support, no removable battery and no memory card slot, we wonder if this will be the case with the iPhone 5.
If we try to look back, we have seen lots of high-end smartphones release already this year. Arguably, this year will be the hardest year for Apple to stay dominant in the high-end smartphone market.
We expect the iPhone 5 to be much faster than the iPhone 4 and may even feature the dual-core Apple A5 SoC, if this is the case the battery capacity is very important, if you can’t get much more than a day from the battery it may be an idea to offer a removable battery, this has never been seen with any previous iPhone release, however could be essential this year.
Many have also thought that the iPhone 5 will run iOS 5. There is also a talk of integrated cloud storage which is great for data security.
No iPhone has ever featured a memory card slot and Apple charge a lot for higher capacity models. You have to pay an extra $100 for an extra 16GB of storage for the iPhone 4.
Finally Apple has been very stubborn regarding Adobe Flash support that without this support, it will be detrimental to battery life. This is due to Apple’s claim that Adobe’s security credentials are questionable.
All of these are problems that Apple must take account. So, let’s just see how they will answer to this account.
