Since iPhone’s inception, Apple has been making iPhones with the same screen size of 3.5 inches so it is almost confirmed that iphone 5′s screen would be bigger than that and the leaked images also makes this expectation believable. Also, to compete with Samsung; the master of large screen phones, Apple definitely needs to increase the screen size of iPhone 5.

Apple is also expected to include a quad-core A6 processor and improved camera. The overall body design; the aluminum uni-body, of the next iPhone seems to be very attractive and is receiving generally positive reviews from those who have checked the leaked images. It seems that Apple has kept in mind it’s huge number of fans and the diversity in their choices as the shape of the iphone is same as iphone 4/4s while changing the appearance tactfully.
It is also highly expected that the new iPhone will have the LTE technology as it was also in the third gen. iPad. This is also confirmed by seaching on Apple’s official website.

According to 9to5mac, Apple has introduced a new 9-pin dock connector instead of the previous 30-pin connector and is called ‘Lightening’. It is probably going to be faster than the 30-pin dock connector.
Apple will also be announcing the new version of their earphones with an innovative design called the ‘Earpods’ and will be sold at the same price of $29. It is not confirmed that ‘Earpods’ will come standard with the new iPhone and iPods but they are definitely going to be better in terms of the sound quality and comfort.
9to5mac quotes that according to a high profile US retailer the new iPod shuffle would come in 8 new colours; pink, yellow, blue, green, purple, silver, ‘slate’ and red, and its storage capacity would remain same i.e 2 GB.
The US retailer also states that the 4th gen. iPod touch would remain with it’s capacity being increased from 8 GB to 16 GB and also, Apple will ship a unique new ‘Loop’ accessory in different colors for the new iPod touch which will come in white+black, white+red, white+pink, white+yellow, and white+blue and would cost around $10.
