According to a new report published by Macotakara Apple could release the iPhone 4S and iPad 3 in October. Various reports we’ve highlighted in the past suggest that iPhone 5 will be announced in the coming month, but it is believed that along with fifth gen iPhone Apple could announce a low-cost version too.
Earlier this month The Guardian reported that iPhone 5 had entered the carrier testing phase and the handset according to sources was enclosed in a “dummy body”. This could be a possible reason for confusion between iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.
It is widely believed that the fifth gen iPhone will feature Apple’s dual-core A5 chip, more RAM, 8 megapixel camera, full HD 1080p recording and a thinner design.
A low cost “iPhone 4S” could help Apple penetrate the Asian Market further where Android has a strong hold. Android powered phone can cost as low as $150 (without any contract) in India which has one of the fastest growing telecom industry.
Even though we’ve been hearing rumors about iPad 3 it seems unlikely for Apple to introduce a newer version less than a year after the introduction of the second gen tablet.
