Verizon iPhone 4, Multi-carrier iPhone 5 Will Be The Real Test For Carriers: Apple is set to release many new products for rest of this year and in the beginning of the next year as well including the Verizon iPhone, the iPhone 5, iOS 4.2 and the new iPad 2.If the rumors regarding the release of these products are true then these products will hit the shelves within the space of the next 6 months.
This does not include the white iPhone. But among all these products, the most hyped is the Verizon iPhone 4, which is rumored to hit the stores in January next year. Some tech websites reported that Verizon would make formal announcement in this regard on November 9.
It is rumored that Apple is also getting ready to release its iPhone 5 in either February or March 2011; but again, these are just rumors and Apple is yet to make an official announcement in this regard. Traditionally Apple had released its next generation iPhones in June so the February- March thing looks unlikely.
Some news outlets reported that the T-Mobile iPhone 4 and the Sprint iPhone 4 are also under development but it is expected that the Verizon iPhone 4 would be the first to hit the market.
Apple knows that the release of iPhone on Verizon network would help the company to expand the reach of its highly successful device to millions of customers because Verizon is the largest by subscription in the US. Some recent surveys had shown that many AT&T customers are willing to switch to Verizon if Apple decides to release the iPhone on Verizon network.
