Although most of us are expecting a modest spec bump for this year’s iPhone, a new report has surfaced that claims Apple may be planning to use a “curved cover glass” in the next model, similar to the iPod nano from a couple generations ago.
There’s little doubt that Apple is up to something big in its retail stores this Sunday, May 22, including a companywide daily newspaper for employees dubbed “The Daily Download,” part of a new iPad-based initiative called “RetailMe.”
Assuming the rapture doesn’t take you on May 21, Apple could have something exciting brewing for Sunday, May 22 after an early morning Apple Store meeting with employees. Could it be the company’s annual back to school promotion?
Now that U.S. carriers have started rolling out their 4G LTE networks, all eyes are on Apple as we wait to see when the technology might come to the iPhone. A new report claims it’s unlikely to launch until 2012, while production of the current iPhone 4 is slowing down ahead of the next model expected in September.

By this date on the calendar, we’d usually be within spitting distance of a new iPhone -- but that’s all changing this year, with rumblings that an iPhone 5 won’t appear until September.

Securing a contract to provide Apple components for its iOS devices is only half the battle -- you’ve got to keep pushing the envelope or Cupertino might look elsewhere. That appears to be the case with the iPhone’s ambient light sensor, according to reports out of the Far East.
Since the first iPhone debuted in 2007 -- and right up through this week’s iOS 4.3.3 update -- installing a new software version on your handset has meant jacking into iTunes. But that could change starting with iOS 5 later this year.
