14 Hours Until Apple “Let’s Talk iPhone” Event — Rumor Round Up.



With Apple’s “Let’s Talk iPhone” event 14 hours away (12 Noon CDT) I thought it would be fitting to cover a few rumors floating around the blogs! As with anything Apple no rumor is a guarantee of there being a final product.

iOS 5:

Nothing new to expect in this department other than the announcement of a public released with a GM release to developers at the very least. In the past few weeks it has been said that Facebook will have announcements tomorrow including an iPad app, system wide integration (like twitter), and their HTML5 based tools code named “Project Spartan”. Another rumored announcement is “Assistant”, a voice controlled system for obtaining specific info like sports scores or on various topics. Though this feature is not the same as Apple’s “Voice Control” which is for literally what the name states, allowing voice dial and cueing up songs in the iPod app.


Again nothing new is expected here that wasn’t announced at WWDC ’11. iCloud is meant to be your hard drive in the sky saving idevice backups, contacts, and more.

iPhone 4/4s/5/3Gs:

Several rumors are floating around concerning new and existing iPhones. One is that there will be no iPhone 5 but instead an iPhone 4s with the iPhone 4 becoming only available in 8Gb and replacing the 3Gs. Another rumor is the same as previously stated except with the iPhone 3Gs becoming free on contract. One rumor says there will be a Sprint exclusive iPhone 5 with the 4 inch screen, tear drop shape, and A5 chip and 8mp camera with the iPhone 4s getting the A5 chip and 8mp camera.

Unfortunately Apple will not be livestreaming the event but will make the final recording event available on the company’s website. If you’d like to follow the events as they unfold you can follow @MacRumorsLive on twitter or follow their live blog. Of course a summary of the media event will be posted on this blog along with links and possibly embedded video. Heres to hoping all your iPhone and iOS dreams come true at the keynote tomorrow starting at 10 a.m. pacific.

  1. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
