The iPhone 5: Jobs’ Last Product?

By  |  Sunday, October 16, 2011 at 9:40 am

Brooke Crothers of Cnet is reporting that analyst Ashok Kumar says that the iPhone 5 that some people thought Apple would announce this month–the thinner one with a bigger screen–is real, and will be announced at Apple’s WWDC conference next year. He also says that it’ll be an LTEC device and that he expects it to be a blockbuster based on the fact that it will be the last major product to bear Steve Jobs’ personal imprint.

Kumar has, um, a spotty track record when it comes to rumors. Sometimes they pan out; quite often they don’t. But there’s nothing inherently implausible about this one, and it’s presumably true that we haven’t yet seen the last Apple stuff that Steve Jobs worked on.

    Even though we are about to learn a lot about Steve Jobs's life through his biography, I am sure there is much about his corporate work that is yet to be unveiled. This rumor sounds plausible and I would imagine that he had concepts, maybe even detailed ones, about many future products besides an iPhone 5, so I would imagine we'll be hearing about his influence on future Apple products for years to come.

    Steve Jobs said Apple had a 10-20 year plan, so I'm confident we'll be benefiting from his brilliance for a long while. But we won't see a new iPhone before Fall 2012.
