But what about the new iPhone, when is the new hardware announcement!

Asked by mrrich724 (8537points) April 8th, 2010

I just saw the Apple presentation regarding the new 4.0 software. It talked about alot of cool stuff, but didn’t mention ANYTHING about new hardware…

I still have the original iPhone, and I’ve been holding out on 3GS b/c I figured they would come out with another one this summer.

Do you think they would have announced it at this event if it was going to happen?!

The hardware is announced a couple of weeks before the new phone comes out. The software is announced months earlier, to give third party app developers time to update their programs. This is the same thing that happened last year.

Not necessarily, the focus was on the OS (hello multi-taksing); I’ve actually been of the mind that they might not do much with iPhone hardware (maybe a couple moderate improvements to battery, performance, capacity) this year as it could cut into their iPad sales. Keep an eye out mid july to end of august that’s been their launch window in the past if I recall correctly.

Yea, I’m just upset I don’t get multitasking on the my old azz phone. I guess I’ll just hold out ‘til July :/

Thanks guys.

Man I hope the latest iPhone model really rocks when my contract runs out. It’s kind of nice watching it get better and better and not having one.
