In response to the yesterday’s report by 9to5Mac of iPhone 5 gears production, Daring Fireball’s John Gruber claims that iPhone 5 is not yet in production. Additionally, he also states the size of iPhone 5 will be same as of iPhone 5 with bigger display screen.
Gruber directly replies:
No teardrop-shaped devices, as rumored in the lead up to the iPhone 4S. Samples so far have been symmetrical in thickness (also longer/wider).
Longer and wider? Sounds like bullshit. I can see Apple putting a bigger display on a device of the same size. I can’t see them making a bigger device.
Though Gruber was not much sure about the changes incorporated in iPhone 5 but it seems that Apple will not be following its summer release cycle. Gruber has always been very close to Apple and provided accurate information on Apple and its products.
