You manage a blog for CNET the iPhone rumor roundup. And there are some new rumors that are being bandied about now and the one that I heard about recently -- the connector. -- that's the latest rumors that looks to be one of -- most probable is that so right now the iPhone and most Apple products that have victory and connector Apple -- that for years. And it's gonna be smaller some people say it's gonna -- in nineteen pin connector which means it's just gonna be there. August this is not good news for me because I'd like to take one charger with me from iPad and iPhone concerts and Mexican adaptor routes on -- so Freeman and actually has an iPhone. You will have to buy -- new you to -- new charger and actually to buy connector for your -- any kind of product you use your iPhone and you'd have to. Our guide the other everywhere that we've been hearing about is the screen so what's the verdict on the -- -- the screen. Well -- strange could be bigger and we really hope it will leaders right now the iPhone as a 3.5 inch screen which was great when it came out but you know a lot of great sponsor for fourth time it's one small things and small so we really hope it's bigger news we hear it's gonna be speaker also is going to be -- -- have a -- aspect ratio so think about like. Used to -- one -- the regular TVs and you got the white screen TV it's better for movies and videos have. Might be two things just bigger and wider and obviously that's gonna allow for hopefully sixteen -- nine ranger are packed so these rumors come for. -- from lot of places you hear from analysts that follow Apple we hear them -- Suppliers are peacemakers in Asia that are making the components that go into the iPhone and they snapped photos or somebody. Reports on the -- some of this is what it is -- -- a lot of replacement or come from Apple itself a -- pretty tight tight lips yeah. And that manufacturers. That manufacturing companies Foxconn packet Tron that are making these products sometimes workers weak information is easily see so that we -- mr. blurry cam photos -- -- -- -- -- but it -- chemistry when you take these things yet. You'll say oh here's a mock -- -- here's a case something. Okay couple of other rumors about the device as well I have -- yet should be fourteen of them -- LTE so. Hopefully will be forty around the world so right now a lot of cares -- -- -- -- compatible. It will be that means typically that use them to possibly Verizon in the travel overseas ports.

The could have a world phone service as well so -- -- allowing you to switch back and forth so. Those -- the biggest things -- -- Okay and do you give any of -- more or. Weight than the others I think there -- -- probable I think -- screen. And that's the.
