Details Of Next Generation iPods, Mini iPad, iPhone 5 And Cheaper All-Silicone iPhone 4 Bumper Leaked?

iPad Mini

iLounge has just reported that they have received information about Apple’s plans for the next generation iPod, iPad and iPhone from a 'highly reliable source'.

According to their source, Apple is planning to release as many as three new iPod models very soon, a seven-inch iPad later this year or early next year, the fifth generation iPhone as soon as January and also received some interesting details about bumper case for iPhone 4.

iLounge has provided the following details of the next generation Apple devices:

iPod:

Apple apparently has 3 iPod models ready and could introduce them as early as this month or latest by September.

According to iLounge, the new models include the iPod Touch and iPod nano, while the third model could be a new touch screen iPod shuffle.

This is quite likely as Apple usually refreshes its iPod product line in September every year.

iPad:

Apple is planning to introduce a smaller 7-inch iPad model either later this year or early next year. This is not the first time we’re hearing rumors of a mini-iPad. Back in April we had reported that Apple might launch a mini iPad between 5 and 7 inches as early as the first quarter of 2011.

iPhone:

According to iLounge, Apple might launch iPhone 5 as early as January next year because of the iPhone 4 antenna issue.

We are quite skeptical about this one. But we have also heard rumors that that Verizon Wireless will start selling Apple's iPhone from early next year so can’t rule it out completely.

iPhone 4 Bumper:

iLounge reports that according to their source, Apple is working on a less expensive all-silicone version of the Bumper case for iPhone 4 to give away after September as part of the iPhone 4 case program.

Apple apparently was planning to bundle the bumper case with iPhone 4 but then decided against it, indicating that it was aware of the iPhone 4 antenna issue.

Their source has also told them that the original iPhone 4 case had more hard plastic than the final version.

We can’t wait to see Apple’s next generation iOS devices. How about you?

    We would take it with a pinch of salt but its always interesting to hear some tidbits before an Apple product is launched.

    apple the evil empire strikes again

  • SiLeNcEbOnE

    oh man and i just bought a "factory unlocked" iPhone 4 from Canada and now they are planning on releasing a iPhone 5…….
    i'm dissapointed…..

  • ohjayp

    I not seeing the logic behind a smaller ipad. I think it may be a all new product like an apple ebook reader or maybe a new kind of ipod.

    really Im a apple fanboy and I wouldnt buy a small ipad. would any of you?

  • alecio

    I saw something very interesting yesterday. I went to the Apple store in Pasadena CA, my iphone broke and I needed to replace it. While I was waiting my turn to be assisted, I was playing with the ipads, and every ipad that I played I saw they were jailbreaked, at least 7 ipads. Someone else already commented about that here?

    Tell me you did it. At least one of them was jail-broking by you. I can kiss my wife for that.

    Jailbroken store phones and pads would be awesomely funny!

  • the dude in the hood

    iPhone hacks you need a job bro
    A real one
    Bro with need some news like

  • Triver

    I jailbroke an iphone today in the Seattle Store and got caught. They 86'd me. HAHA!! Bitches! I am sure they will come out with some way to block the site.

  • Gallo

    wth im all ready going through hell trying to find a store thats not sold out of iphone 4s… and now there might be an iphone 5 coming out in the same month as my birthday -____-

  • FredMc

    Since AT&T is granting early upgrades I can easily believe a new model is coming out soon, and most likely one for T-Mobile (instead of Verizon)

  • Spritesc

    I sure would like apple to give a discount or a consideration of some sort for those upgrading from iphone 4. Early next year it's just to soon and they owe us for the antenna issue.

  • LowPerformance

    Well here's the thing…. If you don't like the topic don't fucking read it? Pretty damn simple instead you choose to read a topic that you say you could give 2 shits about then even take the extra time to make it be known that you obviously have nothing better to do than bash the balls of someone who is merely trying to make people aware of all news big or small

    This topic doesn't personally strike me as interesting but I'm glad someone takes the time to pass along the information no
    Matter how big or small

  • LowPerformance

    Hell yeah!! Heard that

  • ed

    they don't owe us shit….at least in their eyes!

  • apple hater

    GEOHOT <—- can you please take away the RA1N DROP icon from LIMERA1N.COM website, or remove the website as well, I know that you'e already paid or sign up for 2 years, but it worthless now … thanks

  • dannyyyyyyyyyy

    lmao @ everyone jailbreaking a iphone at apple. i gotta try that one day.

  • Pastordubbz

    iphone 5 as soon as next year?? Apple needs to do the right thing to us customers now. If a new device (iphone 5) is created to fix the current issues (antenna) , then we need to be apart of that solution as well. We must be compensated and not with a $20 bumper. And where is the white iphone? Apple is becoming like BP and dumping all their problems that they caused on us and leaving us to pay and be responsible to fix everything. Saying they "fixed it the issue" but definitly havent and just trying to keep themselves out of trouble. Steve "Jobs" needs to live up to his name and do the right job. Recall

  • ass

    $20 bumper. you must be joking I can by that from dealextreme.com for $2 maximum

  • Apple and ATT owe me NOTHING

    You guys are idiots, Apple OWES you something after they offered to refund all your money and let you out of your AT&T contract. If your not happy with the phone, return it. Don't say how great it is, use it for 6 months then cry that Apple and AT&T needs to make it right.

    PLEASE

    Let me guess, democrats who support universal healthcare Lol

  • What?

    Why would you pay $700 for the phone? You could have got a laptop or LCD tv. Have to say that is a pretty big waste of money.

  • Rover

    They would never release a smaller or bigger Ipad. It's been 4 generations and they still have the same size touch and iPhone. Plus adding a different size screen to the market will prob mean another section added to the app store

  • Sahid

    that tiny touch screen… ive ready an article and saw a picture of a tyne touch screen from apple. not sure if it was from iphonehacks.com but i saw it. so the shuffle with touch creen could be real.

  • wolverinemarky

    i doubt there will be an iphone 5, there may be a verizon phone but it will just be a cdma version of the iphone4. there wont be any new generation of iPhone released before next june or july. on that note all the iPod and iPad news is very believable although i would rather have a bigger ipad then a smaller one

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01053708cd10970b A Black Dude

    they would probably do the same thing they did with the 2g just give everyone 100$ store credits

  • Enok

    Well said

  • SiLeNcEbOnE

    I'm dissapointed cuz I just spent that much for iPhone 4 and there is a iPhone 5 on the way… If I knew that earlier atleast 3 days then I would of just waited it out.
    And yeah it is a waste of money now that 5 is going to come out. Money is no issue for me. But this really dissapointed me…

  • Josh

    The real question is why not get it for 200 from us?

  • Jordan

    I agree if they already had a working iPhone 5 they would have made that the IPhone 4
    It takes a long time to bring a product to market it's not something you can whip out in a month. I'm not personally offended by this but I wouldn't classify these rumors as news either.

  • val

    If money is no issue to you, then why would you care?

  • val

    I agree with you. They won't release a new model out of their ordinary cycle, unless its a version for another network. I think that it will be an iPhone 4 that will work on their network; not an iPhone 5 as we would call it.

  • just sayin'

    wow..you're bashing dude in the hood because u think he's bashing iphonehacks? so ur not being judgemental or critical at all, huh?

    i actually agree with dude..this site usually has good content, but the name of the site is called, "iphonehacks". i think it should have more regular updates on new iphone hacks/apps/extentions/how-to's and so on.

    not hatin' at all here.

    Take it back there is a 30 money back promise in the UK anyway

  • just sayin'

    or a forum area where readers can help each other with questions and problems.

    but i suppose that requires more man-power..admin, moderators and such.

    that would be a nice upgrade to this site tho..

  • SiLeNcEbOnE

    Why would you spent money on a product while there is a new 1 coming out within 6 monhts. Newer and better design. Just because people have money does not mean they should spent it like crazy. I still have my old iphone 3g, never bought a 3gs. The 3g worked fine for me.
    Oh and I paid $1100 for the iPhone 4 of ebay… I don't live in the US nor Canada….

  • SiLeNcEbOnE

    I don't live in the US….
    If I was I wouldn't be disapointed as I could just return it for a refund…

    I will definitely buy the next version iphone, no matter what it called iphone 4a or iphone 5. I believe it will be an improved product over iphone 4.
