Apple board member, Al Gore, leaked some information about the awaited release of the new iPhones on Wednesday (9/21). The comment has also increased speculation that Apple could release a cheaper iPhone along with the iPhone 5, currently nicknamed the iPhone 4S.
He said, “Not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month. That was a plug.” Notice that the word iPhone was in plural form.
The iPhone 4S is supposed to be sold contract-free, so Apple can also enter the pre-paid plans, as Android already has. The design of the iPhone 4S is supposed to be identical to the iPhone 5, but some of the features may be different, as the iPhone 5 will be more expensive.
Apple is expected to hold a WWDC event on October 4th to release the new iPhones. Though it is not in the June-July timeframe in which most of Apple’s conferences are in, this one is one of the, if not the most, awaited WWDC conferences, and for good reason.
The iPhone 5 is supposed to be available on all GSM and CDMA carriers, which includes Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T.
