iPhone 5 coming next summer!"According to report from 9to5 Mac, Apple is on schedule to ship the iPhone 5 in the summer of 2012. Why didn’t Apple release it earlier, as rumored? CNET said in a recent story that Steve Jobs was heading up the iPhone 5 project, which was met with delays in February, while the iPhone 4S was developed by another team. The iPhone 5 production delays would have made a holiday deadline impossible. As such, Apple was forced to make the final decision to hold the iPhone 5 until kinks in the production line were ironed out. The iPhone 4S team moved forward and released the phone on schedule and in time for the holidays. Rumors still suggest the iPhone 5 will be thinner, lighter and will have a teardrop form factor."http://www.bgr.com/2011/10/18/iphone-5-on-schedule-for-summer-launch/
Macworld contributor Scott McNulty observed on Twitter that Siri lets you send texts and emails while the iPhone 4S is locked. So, of course, we tried it ourselves, and yes, it's true. While your iPhone 4S is locked—even with a passcode—you can hold down the Home button to activate Siri, compose an email or text, and send it.
What can you do to prevent Siri access on a locked iPhone? As pointed out to Macworld by Chris Nuccitelli via Twitter, you need to use a passcode lock. Then, once you set a passcode lock, you can then turn off Siri access in the passcode lock settings (Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock).
Maybe they should just call it the iPhone 4 XL:http://www.bgr.com/2012/08/31/iphone-5-pictures-leaked-iphone-4-comparison/I actually like that they are not making it wider like the current crop of 4+ inch Android phones.
