iPhone 5 Rumor Roundup [Day 5] [Last Day]

Today is finally the day we have all been waiting for, Apple is set to unveil the new iPhone and officially launch iOS 6. We are also expecting some other apple products to make an appearance in this apple event. At 9:15 PST or 12:15ET we will be posting our final rumors and news on Apple's September 12 event so stay tuned. This is also the final episode in this series so i would like to thank the readers who stayed by for this 6 weeks. Today there is practically not much news about the iPhone 5 but there is one very interesting news today. The news is that a reporter has went undercover as a person who wants to work at a foxconn plant which assembles the iPhone. we will talk more about this topic in a separate post. A leaked iOS 6 multitasking feature enables turn by turn navigation to work if you are using certain apps. So if there's no rumors we will be talking about some old rumors. The first one is wheter the new iPhone will have NFC and i think that this is still unknown as Apple is known to not put future technologies on their devices which are not yet solid or stable. So the answer is maybe we might see NFC. Next we will talk about the new mini dock connector which is going to be embedded on future i devices starting with the new iPhone. Currently we know that the new dock connector will be as big as a micro USB connector and has 8 contact points but it is still unsure wheter it will be a 8 pin or 16 pin dock connector. Finally Samsung is expected to take legal action over the iPhone 5 just after the launch. Apparently Samsung is not happy with the lawsuit which they lost a few weeks back, this time Samsung is going to sue the iPhone 5 over infringement over Samsung's 4G wireless patents. Samsung is aiming at two major markets for the iPhone the US and Europe.
