When is the exact release date for iPhone 5? well no one know about this, but some reported that the fifth generation of apple iPhone will release on mid September 2011.
iPhone 5 is that it will run on Apple’s latest operating system, iOS 5. The third beta version of iOS 5 was recently released to developers, and besides bringing new security functions, personalized ringtones and the new notification center, it brings the “Assistive Touch” feature that seems to take the place of iPad and iPhone’s buttons.
The options “Gestures”, “Device”, “Home” and “Favorites” are found in the Assistive Touch menu. The “Gestures” option will allow you to perform gestures using up to 5 fingers, tapping “Device” will open a menu that offers the following commands: Rotate Screen, Lock Screen, Volume Up, Volume Down and Shake, “Home” works just like the physical button “Home”, and “Favorites” will allow the users to save any customized gestures. The “Favorites” option will also allow access to the gestures “Swipe” and “Pinch”.
Another hot news about iPhone 5 that Sony May Become the Top Supplier for the 8 Megapixel Camera as OmniVision, which was supposed to supply the new 8 mega pixel cameras for the fifth generation iPhone, is experiencing manufacturing problems. According to an analyst for FBR Capital, Sony will pick up the slack:
“OmniVision may be having technical difficulties with its new CMOS sensor, possibly risking its iPhone socket supplier status. OmniVision’s BSI-2 technology is the world’s first 1.1-micron px architecture allowing for low-light sensitivity and accurate color reproduction for better overall picture quality. Manufactured through Taiwan Semiconductor, it is built using a 300mm copper process at the 65nm node. However, we understand that yield rates at TSM have so far been unacceptably low for commercial viability, and that the deadline for inclusion into the next iPhone has passed. Therefore, Sony could become Apple’s primary supplier of 8MP CMOS image sensors for the next iPhone, with OmniVision possibly being a backup supplier. Many believed that OmniVision would capture as much as 90 percent share of iPhone production, which may turn out to not be the case.”
