The latest out of the rumor mills is a report on Japanese website Macotakara, which claims that Apple will begin testing the entry-level iPhone sometime next month. In addition, the report also claims that the Cupertino-based company will launch the fifth-generation iPad with certain changes after it releases the iPhone 5S in September.
Macotakara claims that Apple will start field testing the low-cost iPhone sometime in June and then start mass producing the device in July or September. It is also believed that this iPhone will be available in a variety of colors like Gold-Orange, White, Gray, Pink, Green, Blue and Yellow-Orange. From what we know of the cheaper iPhone, it is said to sport a body made of materials similar to the glossy polycarbonate body seen on the company’s entry-level MacBook. Rumored specs also claim that the phone will feature a 3.5-inch display, an A5 chip and a 5-megapixel camera at the back.
The report on Macotakara also reveals new information on the forthcoming fifth-generation iPad, saying that the tab will feature a rear mic, which will be located directly next to the rear camera. This will be similar to the placing seen on the iPhone 5. Previous reports have claimed that the new iPad will sport a form and design factor quite similar to the iPad mini, with a very narrow bezel and similar chamfered edges.
