Apple's iPhone 5 in the wild?

Culture
What's happening Brian Tong here and welcome to the Apple Byte. It's all the good stuff, all the bad stuff and everything inside the world of Apple plus our Captain America case giveaway winners, it's all here. Now, I don't know about you guys, but I'm getting a little sick of all these made up rumors in release dates for the iPhone 5 so we'll give you something a little more substantial to chew on this week. The Boy Genius report released photos of a possible iPhone 5 cloned from China and we know this isn't the actual next-gen iPhone, but it does resemble an iPhone 4 with smooth out edges. The new iPhone is currently being built and parts leaked out from the factories are common thing like this iPhone 5 proximity light sensor flex cable so this should be based on elements of the actual design. Now, we won't show you these pictures if we didn't have a connecting story and a picture of the potential iPhone 5 that was taken by 9to5Mac reader over the weekend on Caltrans, which is one of Northern California's Transystems was released. Now, the reader was text savvy enough to identify it as a different iDevice that has never seen before. It doesn't look like the 3GS, it doesn't look like the 4, but it does look a lot like the earlier pictures we showed you. Now, this picture here sure looks a lot like big foot and check this one out. That's the Loch Ness Monster. Throw them in with the iPhone Caltrans' photo all real. Now, new rumors speculated the iPhone 5 is coming anywhere from September, now even to October for other countries. Sohu.com says the launch will also include a simplified iPhone 4, which we've heard before, but my gutt says September for the US and I was taken with it. Now, on iTunes news AppAdvice's report the big A will be announcing a full-fledged re-downloading and streaming service called iTunes Replay in the next few weeks. It's an extension of what Apple is already doing with music and iCloud service, but it will now include TV shows and movies. Now, recent software updates of the second-gen Apple TV allows users to stream their previously purchased TV shows directly from the box so now you can both rent and purchase shows from iTunes, and if you haven't checked your iOS devices lately, you know have access to download previously purchase TV shows in the iTunes app to multiple devices as well. The report says content that's eligible will have a little error on it and some content will only be available to download 5 times. It's a nice addition that prevents me from having to bring my computer and sink to it when I'm on the road to re-watch some of the films so I like it. Now, Apple's iCloud beta was also recently released for developers that will replace MobileMe as their new sync and storage service for both iOS 5 and Mac OS X Lion. The iCloud comes with 5G storage for free and they also release the breakdown for how much it cost for additional storage. But one piece of the puzzle that they aren't talking about in the public that much is that the iDisk that's used for your personal storage will go away completely. So purchasing more storage space for iCloud is to store contacts, calendars, and iWork files, but all those personal files with folders you've created on your iDisk will go away so you wanna start back in up to service like Dropbox so you send it instead and this is just the heads up for the Apple Byte it's because it's the stuff that you guys you know. Okay, let's take out some quick bites, Skype for the iPad is free. It's officially here, an optimized for the iPad after a premature release. It works over both 3G and wifi, allows for 2-way video calling and you can use Skype credits to call landlines and mobile phones directly. Now, more content coming out of the iPad. Time Incorporated Magazines will be bring all 21 of its magazines by the end of the year including titles that are currently unavailable like Entertainment Weekly and personal favorites of my mine like Essence and InStyle. Now for those of you looking accomplice, one of life's most elusive goals, you might have done it already, the iPhone is king of the skies and Gogo wireless says that iPhones make up nearly two-thirds of the devices on its inflight WiFi service that's 10,000 feet in the sky. Now, iPod touches make up 20% and Android devices are at 12% so be happy. That's right, tell all your friends, you are part of the Mile High Club with an iPhone. Okay, let's get to our winners from the Captain America showcase giveaway for the iPhone and for an iPod touch. The iPhone case winners are Michael Vega, George Lee, Brice Clark, Chris Henry, and Mario Sandoval who said he is actually Captain America. Now, the iPod touch winners are Austin Cooley, Michelle Tom, and Tom Keefe who said I would make him look like a really cool dad, so Tom let me know how that works out. All right, that's gonna do for this week's show. Send me your e-mails to the Applebyte@cnet.com <mailto:Applebyte@cnet.com>. I'm Brian Tong. Thanks for watching and we'll see you all next week for another byte of the apple.
