iPhone 5 Rumors 2011-01-17 11:30:33

Rumors Point to a Completely Redesigned iPhone 5

Fresh on the heels of the iPad 2 rumors and the sad news of Steve Jobs's medical leave comes another Apple rumor, this one about the next generation of the iPhone. According to a few people in the know, the iPhone 5 will be completely redesigned when it's announced this Summer. The new phone is rumored to be a "complete rethink" both inside and out.

The next iPhone is rumored to support NFC (near-field communication), the same technology supported in Google's Nexus S that allows for short range data exchange between two devices — and could soon be the way we pay for purchases.

What else? Find out after the break.

The next iPhone may also be equipped with voice-recognition technology to rival Google's voice search on Android thanks to Apple's acquisition of Siri, an iPhone app that behaves like a personal assistant. And, speaking of acquisitions that may make their way onto the iPhone 5: Lala, the music-streaming service acquired by Apple in 2009, hasn't yet been integrated into iTunes or any other Apple product.

There's no news of when the next iPhone announcement will come, though many speculate it'll be over the Summer . . . without Steve Jobs.
