Apple are renowned for their marvellous ability to produce new subsequential products with vast improvements in such little time. And allegedly, this seems to be the case once more. For those who possess the latest smart-phone from the California-based company, you won't be at Apple's latest stage of innovation for long.

Supposedly the prototypes that Foxconn have received all share a few things in common. Explicitly, their displays measure over four inches, trumping the iPhone 4 series' 3.5 inch-screen. Similarly, the iPhone 5's design resembles the iPhone 4's, more so than the previous iPhone 3G models, the tear-drop. Despite this, the iPhone 5 will be differential in shape to the iPhone 4 models.
In other Apple news, recent sales figures from Apple proclaim that their Winter quarter was stellar. Apple's net-profit totalled at $13.06 billion on revenues of $46.33 billion. The iPhone's contribution came out as a staggering 37.04 million, the iPad at 15.43 million and Mac sales held an impressive 5.2 million; all in a matter of months.
