It is expected today that Apple will unveil a sneak peak of the next-generation iPhone at a software developers conference in San Francisco.
Specifications of the new iPhone (due for release mid July) are not yet known, however there are many rumours of what will be included in the upgrade. It is expected the new device will introduce a digital compass and a video recorder, among other features.
Here’s the list of new features and specifications that are expected:
- 32GB and 16GB storage (up from the current 16GB and 8GB models)
- 3.2-megapixel camera (up from the current 2-megapixel camera)
- Video-recording and editing capabilities
- Ability to send pictures & video via MMS
- OLED screen
- 1.5 times the battery life of the current models
- Double the RAM and processing power
- Built-in FM transmitter
- The Apple logo on the back of the iPhone will glow
- Rubber-tread backing
- Sleeker design
- Built-in compass
- Turn-by-turn directions
Overall, if the rumoured changes (as above) are correct, then the upgrade is fairly modest, but well accepted.
