Apple is expected to unveil a new version of the iPhone during its annual software developers conference that opens Monday in San Francisco.
Apple won’t comment on its plans, but it has used this conference to launch the last two generations of its phone. In April, Gizmodo, a tech blog, paid $5,000 to obtain a working iPhone prototype that had been lost by an Apple engineer in a Silicon Valley bar. If the descriptions posted online are accurate, the device will be getting a clearer display, longer battery life and a front-facing camera that could be used for videoconferencing.
It’s also likely to have the updated iPhone software Apple previewed in April that makes it easier for users to run more than one program at a time.
