There are talks about Apple iPhone 5 and iPad3 releasing this year. These devices will house Apple's A6 macroscalar processor. Apple has submitted a patent for the name of this processor(macroscalar).
What does a macroscalar processor mean to the customers? A "macroscalar" processor is one that can quickly and efficiently process tasks. There isn't a delay in processing because the processor is always prepared to execute the next task.
If you notice with iPhone 4 or 4S, there is a delay in opening the apps, but with macroscalar, this delay will no longer be there and the device will perform significantly faster than its previous versions.
This processor is very energy efficient and will therefore increase battery life. God knows how much I complain about a phone's battery life specially if you are using a lot of data. We will have to wait and see how much of a increase in battery life there is between iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.
Other speculated features that iPhone 5 may have:
1. Screen: There are speculations that iPhone 5 will have a 4 inch screen with better resolution.
2. 4G Capability: iPhone 5 may have 4G capability
3. NFC (Near Field Communication) payment: Users will be able to make payments through scanner.
4. Waterproof: iPhone 5 may have a waterproof coating.
So far Apple has been successful in not letting out the iPhone 5 features out in public. It is said that iPhone 5 was the last iPhone project Steve Jobs was working on. All iPhone lovers like me are waiting for the launch of this product.
With all these speculated features do you think it is worth making a switch from an iPhone 4S to iPhone 5? Please leave your comments below.
