It’s hard to say which rumors are 100 percent true, but you can probably count on getting your hands on the new iPhone 5 sometime this month.  No release date is final, but keep the final two weeks of September open on your calendar if you plan to be one of those waiting in line outside the Apple Store.

 

Now, here are some iPhone 5 rumors that seem sketchy:

 

Retina Display 4 inches or larger – not only could this make the iPhone 5 clunky to hold in one hand, scaling up would cause pixels per inch to drop
Near-Field Communications – a metal backing for the iPhone 5 would block NFC antenna signals, disabling the opportunity for this mobile payment technology to work.

 

Asymmetric Screw – this rumor of a screw designed by Apple to keep customers from opening their devices was created to generate a frenzy and was eventually shot down.

 

There’s a load of other iPhone 5 rumors out there, but luckily you won’t have to wait much longer to see what the real deal has to offer.

 

Will you be snatching up an iPhone 5?  Why or why not?
