Apple is usually fairly predictable when it comes to naming devices. Our D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices have been patiently waiting for the next iPhone to be released, and there has been much debate over what the name will be. Some say it will be the iPhone 5, while some say it will be simply “The iPhone” similar to the recent curve ball Apple threw at us with the iPad. We are expecting the latest iPhone to be released in October, 2012. Carriers such as Spring are gearing up by offering unlimited data plans with LTE! All in all, the iHospital believes it will be called the iPhone 5 and here are three rock solid reasons:
1.) Apple has filed a claim with WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) to gain control of the iPhone5.com domain. The folks at WIPO are currently looking over how compliant Apple’s claim is, and proceedings are to be initiated in the near future. Interestingly, Apple didn’t get full control of the domain iPhone4.com until nearly a year after that device launched. And guess what happened with iPhone4S.com? Apple gained full control two weeks after the release of the iPhone 4S because that domain was forwarding visitors to pornography sites! Talk about a wrong turn.
2.) Apple will stick with the tried and tested method of naming devices and that’s why they’ll call it the iPhone 5. It would be a tongue twister if they called it iPhone 4S2? Using numbers to name devices keeps thing simple for customers. Remember the latest iPad fiasco? Customers were having major issues when purchasing the new iPad as opposed to the iPad 2. Calling the new iPhone, the iPhone 5, will definitely keep everyone happy.
3.) The iPhone 4S wasn’t a complete overhaul of the iPhone 4 and didn’t warrant a new number. The newest iPhone is rumored to be thinner and taller with a 4″ display. It will also have a new, smaller dock connector that will replace the existing 30-pin dock connector. Big sigh of relief!
So there you have it, three major reasons why the next iPhone will be named the iPhone 5: Apple filed a claim with WIPO to acquire iphone5.com and historically they did the same with the iPhone 4 and the 4S, they will stick with a tried and tested simple strategy on how to name devices, and finally, the iPhone 5 will be a complete overhaul of the iPhone 4S and will require a brand new number! What do you think?
