Apple Insiders Say Next Generation iPhone May Debut in April

iphone-4g-conceptIt looks like Apple might be busting out all of its new gear this spring, first the Apple tablet in in March and the perhaps a next generation iPhone in April. KT, an exclusive South Korean partner for Apple’s iPhone, told The Korean Times it plans to introduce an upgraded 4G version of the device this April. The anonymous sources from KT claims this new 4G iPhone will have an OLED screen, boast better graphics and dual-core processor, and have a video chat function. KT sources also eluded to a new removable battery and a higher resolution camera for the iPhone 4G.

The AppleInsider, says the pieces seem to be falling into place considering its report from last week of Apple purchasing a significant amount of LED camera flash components.  The AppleInsider thinks the rumored dual-core support for the iPhone 4G will probably come in the form of the new Cortex-A9 processor design from ARM, which are capable of breaking the 2GHz barrier.

As with all Apple news, unless it’s directly announced by Steve Jobs himself, it seems like a curious jigsaw puzzle. We’ll keep you updated on more iPhone 4G developments as they seep through the cracks.

iPhone SE 4: news, rumored price, release date, and more
The Apple iPhone SE (2022) and Apple iPhone SE (2020) together.

While the spotlight always seems to be on Apple’s mainline iPhones, the iPhone SE is a great pick for those who are on a budget. If you want an iPhone that doesn't break the bank, the SE is the way to go.

The original iPhone SE came out in 2016, and then Apple revamped it in 2020 and 2022 by giving it some more modern hardware. The iPhone SE tends to get updated every two or so years rather than annually like the traditional iPhone. This means  that we should see a new iPhone SE 4 this year, but it’s not so cut-and-dried with this particular model.

A person holding the Anker MagGo Power Bank.

Power banks are a necessary evil, and even if you don’t consider yourself a “power user” who's likely to drain a phone’s battery in less than a day, there will be times when one comes in handy. And when I am forced to carry one, I want it to be as helpful and versatile as possible.
