The leaked photos of the iPhone 5’s “new design” have been extremely underwhelming. Its supposed rectangular design, no matter how two-tone and unibody it might be, is antiquated by tech standards and looks like what the 4S was to the 4; a hardware upgrade. I think it might be an overkill to call it a “revolutionary new design.” But Apple knows they can say and do whatever they want and the ultra-loyalists will consume their tripe and form a somewhat orderly line outside the store a la depression era.
We already know what iOS6 holds for us, Apple has had details on its site for ages. Not bad, nothing spectacular, except for their own Maps app which looks pretty cool. And maybe the Passport app.
