Recent rumors for the anticipated iPhone 5 (i.e., the sixth generation iPhone) include speculation that the iPhone will have a certain technology called Liquidmetal instead of glass. But there’s been a little confusion as to what that will entail and what else we can expect for Apple’s next phone. Here’s a rundown brought you by the Airspace.
First we have a demo of the liquid metal technology in action.
- The iPhone 5 will feature a larger screen—according to our source, “large enough to fry an egg on.”
- The iPhone 5 will come preloaded with an egg frying app.
- It won’t have a home button, but one will still be available after a $99 upgrade fee.
- Its terms of service will give away naming rights to your first born child. Rumored names include “Cupertino”—if a girl—and “Ping”—if sterile.
- The iPhone 5 will be alongside a less expensive, cloud-based model which won’t actually exist.
- You will be able to combine several iPhone 5s to create a new new iPad.
- Siri will come with both “HAL” and “GLaDOS” settings.
- The announcement will be given by a holographic Steve Jobs.
- Each iPhone will come with a vial of tears from a Foxconn employee.
- The iPhone 5 will use inductive charging to turn the user’s self-satisfaction into battery power.
- The iPhone 5 is so thin it will entirely vanish if placed on its side. Don’t place the iPhone 5 on its side.
- It will be released on or around Christmas to, quote, “Prove once and for all that Apple is bigger than Jesus.”
- Immediately following its release, an iPhone 6 with an SD card slot, a new form factor, and a larger screen will begin production.
