RUMOUR ROUND-UP: More iPhone 5 / N64 gossip

apple-black-logo.jpgAs people get more and more excited about Apple’s iPhone announcement next week and cases begin to be shipped to stores in the US, it’s time to catch up with some of the latest gossip.

We wrote a big rumour round-up yesterday, but a few different bits and pieces have been floating around since then…

1. Three different capacities

According to 9to5mac, the new iPhone is set to come in three different sizes, 64GB, 32GB and 16GB.

2. A tapered design

MacRumours has published pictures of a new Case Mate case which has a very slim and very tapered design. Although we’ve been expecting something that shape, the photos suggest that it’s even sleeker than we expected.

3.Sooner than expected

You’d expect Apple to start selling its new phone up to a month after the announcement, but with new cases being shipped out here, there and everywhere it could be that the iPhone will be sold in a matter of days rather than weeks after the event next Tuesday 4th October.

4.. The N94 codename

Most of the rumours that have surfaced today have come about because new notes have appeared on Apple’s inventory system under the codename N94. So that’s what we can call the new little guy now until we find out whether it’s an iPhone 4s, 5 or 345774896.

5. Black and white colours confirmed (well, 99%)

Considering how popular both black and white models of the iPhone 4 have been in the past, it makes sense that Apple would release both colours of the next device too. However, recent notes made on the inventory system CONFIRM that this will be the case.
