Apple has always been known to innovate and inspire beyond anything else. It has been known to create top class wonders and people have been known to follow their trends many times. It can be seen so in the fact that ever since the Mac Book’s slim body, many companies have tried to duplicate the sleekness for their own product. Moreover, many have also tried to copy the iPod and while none of them have succeeded to date, we can clearly see that there were attempts at dethroning Apple in order to gain instantaneous success.
Ever since its inception, many people have tried to copy its slender build and gorgeous beauty. However, most of them have not been able to succeed and have therefore, not been able to get to Apple’s footing as of yet. Yet, it is to be noted here that ever since Steve Jobs’ death, it has been speculated that Apple may not be of the same footing anymore. However, many critics beg to differ as they see the iPhone 5 as the next brilliant piece of technology to be ever made in the history of communication. If that’s true, we will just have to wait and see but for now it can be wondered if Apple will be able to pull of something this successful.
Apple goes back to times when the idea of computing was mostly laughed at and people did not see the same spark that Jobs saw. However, if you compare what was then to what is today; you will see a striking similarity in terms of absolute brilliance. You can always hope that this corporation will be better with each and every product and it will never ever let you down. You wanted music on the go, they brought you the iPod. You wanted the slimmest and minutest iPod there is, they presented you with the new iPod Nano. You wanted a Mac screen that would exude brilliant beauty they gave you nothing but classiness and elegance. You wanted a fast speed computer to go; they gave you the Mac Book. You wanted something slim and classy; they gave you Mac Book Air.
Apple has offered every thing; people are looking for in their mobile phones. Therefore, the factor to consider here is whether the iPhone is going to meet with the same air of awe. The most recent iPhone 4S had mixed reviews. While some called it an utter failure what with being almost a prototype of the previously released iPhone 4, others called it a success what with the introduction of Siri; your online assistant. The fact of the matter here is that iPhone has had the largest fan following in the world and Samsung and Blackberry are only half of where this particular phone is. However, the iPhone 5 is speculated to be bigger and better than ever what with this being the most worked on project since the first ever Macintosh. Whether it will rise up to your expectations, you will just have to wait and see.
Is the iPhone 5 going to be anything like its speculations?
Apple, as we all know, is quite literally the pioneer of brilliance and a stupendous range of products. It has been known as the ultimate guide for those what with its various applications and its excellent aim at giving you everything you need simply within the blink of an eye. What with Apple growing affordable by the year, it has to be noted that it is also getting much, much better. The new Mac Book has become the epitome of grace while the new iTouch has become what you would call the best there is in terms of being on the go. Moreover, you can also see that the new iPhones or the more recent ones have raised expectations about whether or not the ones to come can be more brilliant. The answer, however, is yes.
The iPhone is the grand product of Apple and therefore, much care and thought is put into making it a success. Its inception began with the iPhone 1 and it was received with excellent reviews from critics and was termed as the “new face of technology” by most. Little did they know that Steve Jobs did not at all want to stop just at that point in time. Dedicated as he was, even in disease, he introduced the iPhone 2, iPhone 2G, iPhone 3, iPhone 3G and of course the iPhone 4 and last but most definitely not the least, iPhone 4S. Now, what was the similarity to be found within all these phones? Well, it most definitely has to be the fact that every phone brought something new to the table every single time.
Apple has been known to keep mum about products until they are finally released. They believe that this is what adds to the mystery of the iPhone and therefore, the speculation helps Apple see the consumer base it should be targeting. What with consumers spread all over the world in countless quantities, Apple has nothing to worry about when it comes to success. However, it is to be noted here that the iPhone 5 has faced much speculation and once when people thought it to be out they faced much disappointment in the shape of the iPhone 4. Yet, the real question here is; will the iPhone 5 be anything like its speculations? Will it be the grand epitome of technology or will it simply be a disappointment for the people who are avidly awaiting its release? It has been noted by many that Apple has promised that his particular phone will give everyone a shock to the core what with amount of hard work being put into create it.
You can go to YouTube and type out, “the new iPhone 5” to see for yourself they speculation that surrounds Apple’s new wonder. It has been said by many that this particular wonder is going to be everything you have ever wanted in a phone and it will be just as affordable as the previous iPhones. If that doesn’t shout out a stupendous move from Apple, then I don’t know what does.
iPhone 5 Targeting a Bigger Market
Speaking from a marketing perspective, the new iPhone 5 is most likely to have a bigger target market and will most definitely replace the current version of the iPhone with the newer version due to its distinct features. These features, according to millions of iPhone fanatics will be groundbreaking and far better than the current features of the iPhone 4S. Expected to be launched in the fall of 2012, the iPhone 5 will once again create increased competition for competitive cellular phone companies such as, HTC and Samsung. However, the recent Worldwide Development Conference held in June failed to acknowledge this newer version of the iPhone; therefore, there has been no confirmation whatsoever regarding the launch of the iPhone 5.
With a myriad of faux iPhone 5 YouTube videos circling the World Wide Web, one seems to be lost in a daze and basically wonder as to what Apple’s Research and Development department will bring next to the table. One particular amateur video, displays a barely opaque screen and backside of the iPhone 5, whereby, the consumer can literally see his/her hand right through the gadget. This ingenious thinking and development has left millions of the YouTube viewers in awe of Steve jobs’ originality and thinking since these gadgets were mostly pictured in cartoons such as The Jet sons. However, this video is only a fan’s version of the iPhone 5 and not the original and Authorized Version, therefore, iPhone 5 fanatics will have to wait until the fall of 2012 or stick to the current iPhone version. Though it has been recently reported that iphone sale has declined tremendously in this quarter, as people are expecting its release in up coming months.
Although there has been much skepticism regarding the launch of yet another iPhone, however, Apple fanatics have already started saving up their money even though inflation rates are soaring high. With the evident iPhone 5 fanaticism, no heed has been paid to the fact that whether the new iPhone 5 will be launched or not since this hasn’t stopped the manufacturers in China from designing cases of the new iPhone 5, in order to step ahead of the world in terms of designing the iPhone 5 cases. The new covers of the iPhone 5 are expected to be 33% thinner comparison to the iPhone 4S covers, thus, making it clear that the new iPhone version will be more light-weight; a combination of the iPod Touch and the iPhone 4S. This re-designed version will be launched with various differences such as the positioning of the mute button on the right-hand side rather than the left-hand side; the addition of the iOS 6, the latest generation of Apple’s mobile software.
However, with the given images of the next generation iPhone 5, some would say that this version will be similar to Samsung’s Galaxy S3 due to its thin shape and wide screen, which are somewhat the exact features of the iPhone 5.
