Barclays is of the opinion that the iPhone is the most profitable Apple product till date and the iPhone 5 is just going to add to it.
iPhone 5 to launch the same time as iPhone 4S
There are no secrets that people never expected the iPhone 4S to launch in September 2011. In all probabilities they thought that the new iPhone will be the iPhone 5. But at last, Apple came out with the iPhone 4S, which was a retouched iPhone 4 to be honest. Ben Reitzes at Barclays capital is of the opinion that the iPhone 5 will also launch in the month of September.
Ben also commented on iPhone’s popularity in China. He believes that Apple is in talks with Unicom to launch the iPhone 5. He goes on saying that there are 10 million jailbroken iPhone devices that work on the China mobile network and Apple is desperate to launch the iPhone this time in collaboration with some carrier in China.
iPhone 5 will not have reception problems
The iPhone 4 had reception problems according to many iPhone owners and the blame was set on the aluminum back panel. According to Boy Genius report, the iPhone 5 will come with a rubber or plastic back panel which will solve all the iPhone 4 antenna problems. The reception problems, termed as “Antenna Gate” was a big problem for Apple in the iPhone 4. They don’t want the same issues to haunt them this time with the iPhone 5.
