The mystery of the new iPhone 5 looks like it is getting closer to being solved with every passing day. However, for the meantime we need to rely on snippets of information like the one which has just reached us.
The latest juicy piece of iPhone 5 news comes courtesy of Stephane Richard, who is the CEO of France Telecom and therefore presumably knows some things the general public doesn’t.
Richard stated that the new Apple device will be smaller and thinner than previous generations and will also come with a thinner SIM card than we are used to. France Telecom owns Orange and the boss revealed in a recent interview that a lot of work has been done to make the new SIM card work with all networks and that the network chiefs advised Apple against going with an E-SIM in the new phone.
The slimmer look certainly goes with a lot of the rumours we have seen lately, although Richard is basing this supposition on the fact that this is the reason why a smaller SIM card is needed; which seems fair enough.
The most common belief is that September is going to be the long awaited iPhone 5 release date. Although other industry insiders think that we could have even less time to wait. A date towards the end of June or early July has also now been thrown into the mix by some credible people in the business.
When do you think we will see the release of the iPhone 5? Are you looking forward to it or are you not bothered?
