The clock till the release of the new iPhone is ticking. From a day to another, there is more available news on the market regarding the new product. For the moment, we know only a couple of things about the next Apple star. For example, we know that the starting price will be around $499m and it will fully enjoy the Wi-Fi and wireless options. As in the case of iPad, we can count on a good HDMI connection and the compatibility with OPTIKS systems, allowing a higher visibility of the communications.
But one of the most important features we could expect to the next generation of iPhone is the introduction of a voice-recognition system.
Shortly, we are invited to be part of a different communications experience, focused on offering to the customer the best possibilities of a real-time dialogue.
Last year, Apple bought the start-up developing Siri software, allowing a high range of voice-recognition options. As a consequence, the company included already some voice-to-text functions to the iOS 4. Thus, the introduction of such a feature at the next iPhone5 model is going far beyond rumors. The voice recognition system will confer a high degree of practicability to the new iPhone. The rumors were not confirmed by now by any representative of the company, but all the experts’ bets are including this feature on the iPhone’s menu.
On top of the wish-list of the iPhone5 customers is the possibility to operate the 4G LTE connections. Since January, Verizon began moving out its LTE system and AT&T upgraded its LTE system lately. Due to those adjustments, why would not Apple do the same?
The LTE chips used currently by Apple are a little heavy. An improved version will increase the level of operability of the iPhone models. Thinner chips from Qualcomm are not predicted to hit the industry until the next season, so we probably won’t see LTE until the iPhone 6. In conclusion, such an event will not take place in the next 12 months.
Many companies, as T-Mobile, with a high presence on the US market, are ready to open their doors to the iPhones, but the exact moment when this will be really possible is largely unknown. Cole Brodman, T-Mobile’s promotion specialist, mentioned recently that the collaboration with Apple is not going to occur on the long run. The company recognized the need to allow the entrance of the iPhones of their system, including through their sales’ points. Such a situation was already allowed by AT&T. “Today, there are over a thousand T-Mobile clients using unlocked iPhones on our system. We are considering providing all of our clients a no-compromise iPhone experience on our system.”, outlined Brodman.
