The third generation iPad has been released for almost a month. Now many Apple fans have their own new iPad 3. As time goes on, the freshness of the new iPad 3 gradually fade away. It is time for us to talk about the next generation iPhone.
There are lots of rumors about the sixth generation iPhone on the Internet. Many people are interested in the features of the new generation Apple iPhone. But most of them are still curious about the name of the next generation of iPhone.
Before Apple released iPhone 4S, the name – iPhone 5 appeared in the sight of the people. However, the releasing of iPhone 4S finally let the name iPhone 5 become a joke. Do you think whether Apple will call the next generation iPhone as iPhone 5?
Now let us return briefly to the development history of Apple iPhone. In summary, the Apple iPhone line as follows:
- iPhone: The first generation iPhone with 2 megapixel camera is named iPhone directly. It is simple and clear.
- iPhone 3G: The second model iPhone with 3G wireless is called iPhone 3G. It means that the second generation iPhone supports 3G network.
- iPhone 3GS: The third generation iPhone with 3 megapixel camera is named iPhone 3GS, which has faster processor, higher capacity than the second one.
- iPhone 4: The fourth generation Apple iPhone has not only a complete change in shape, but also has lots of improvements like 5 megapixel camera, front facing camera, Retina Display, A4 processor, etc.
- iPhone 4S: On the basis of iPhone 4, the fifth model iPhone has a big change in internal structure. The new application Siri, 8 megapixel camera, better Retina Display are applied on iPhone 4S. The suffix S stands for faster speed than iPhone 4.
After reading and knowing the Apple development history, you will find there is no rule to follow in iPhone naming convention.
Many Apple fans are concerned about the name of the new generation iPhone while they wait for the releasing of the new iPhone. Hence the similar question – Will the next generation Apple iPhone be called iPhone 4G, iPhone LTE, iPhone 5, iPhone 6, the new iPhone or something else – appears.
All the above-mentioned names may be called as the next generation iPhone name. Below let’s analyze the rationality of these names.
- iPhone 4G/iPhone LTE: According to the development of Apple, the next iPhone may support 4G. So it will be named iPhone 4G or iPhone LTE based upon a wireless technology convention.
- iPhone 5: We all know that iPhone 4S is the fifth-generation iPhone, but if in numerical order rather than years, the next generation iPhone may be called iPhone 5.
- iPhone 6: In view of the numbering scheme, Apple may name the sixth generation iPhone as iPhone 6.
- The new iPhone: Apple may throw all the naming convention and call it as the new iPhone like they name the third generation iPad as the new iPad.
