After the release of Beta 8, Apple is planning towards the release of iOS 5 GM (Gold Master) which is almost equivalent to final iOS 5 release. The GM is rumored to be given out on 23rd September to assemblers to test iOS 5 GM on iPhone 5 Hardware which is waiting for the iOS 5 GM desperately in China.
Apple will then request that carrier partners give technical acceptance to the Gold Master by October 5th if there are no issues with it.
Above was about iOS 5 Beta 8, now lets move to iPhone 5 round up. iPhone 5 is rumored for October Launch. Previously many reports were claiming that iPhone 5 will get no major Design changes, it will be the same as iPhone 4, but with antenna replaced.
The leaked iPhone 5 cases suggest something else. The leaked cases suggested that the iPhone 5 will get a new Design and will be slim. These rumors are for the time being about the design of iPhone 5. We will see about the design, when it comes to final stages of its production.
Apart from these all rumors iPhone 5 won’t be having 64GB of capacity. This was confirmed by a typo mistake made on Verizon’s website on their sure signal page. Verizon also hinted towards the 16GB and 32GB capacity for iPhone 5.
The best thing we would get in iOS 5 is what was missing for years in iDevices. Can you guess what? The thing which every one wanted to have in their iPhone/iPad/iPod and they had to go for alternatives. Did you yet guessed it?
No. If no then it is the one and only Flash Player which has been missing from iDevices since the launch of them. Apple ignored Flash Player every time Adobe tried to push it to them. Now it seems that they have finally managed to do some agreement with Apple and Flash Player will be coming to iOS 5 finally.
So stay tuned with us because we will be covering all the details of iPhone 5 and iOS 5 till it is released for Public.
