Foxconn Source: iPhone 5 ready for production

According to 9to5mac, a reliable source at Foxconn in China (the same source that tipped them off regarding Apple’s plans to release the iPhone 4S instead of the 5 late last summer) has let it be known that the next iPhone (currently being called iPhone 5), is gearing up for production. It is said there are multiple sample next-gen iPhones that are floating around the factory and they all differ slightly from one another. Interestingly enough, the one thing they all have in common with each other is the 4+ inch display, which if true, means Apple will finally release an iPhone with a screen size comparable to other Android phones. In addition, the current samples so far are symmetrical in thickness (no teardrop shape that’s been rumoured previously) and longer/wider than the current iteration, though none share the form factor of the iPhone 4/4s. It’s important to remember that none of these prototypes are actually the final versions – many things can change from now until its actual release in the summer/fall of this year.
