New iPhone will be radically different, practically unrecognizable


MacRumors gets the goods, based on photos of the case for the iPhone 5 which apparently have been arriving in AT&T stores and photographed by super-spies who leaked them to the press. (Right.) As you can see in the photo, there are huge changes coming. Once again, Apple has rewritten the rules of the game. One enormous design shift: The mute button now has been moved to the other side of the phone. Also: The overall size is larger, but the phone is thinner. And it’s tapered. Tapered! Business Insider has a story on this too, which actually links you to a previous BI story about iPhone 5, which links to BI’s really informative 10-click slide show about what to expect in the new iPhone. All I expect is to be knocked senseless by the Zeus-like power of Tim Cook when he strides on stage next week. And I know I will not be disappointed.
