Apple Said to Be Testing iPhone 5 Prototypes as Release-Date Announcement Nears

If you crave iPhone rumors as much as we do, here’s one more.

Apple is said to be testing a few different candidates for its next smartphone.

The prototype phones at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., are protected in locked shells in order to disguise the design, 9to5 Mac has reported.

Apple reportedly is testing two next-gen iPhones that both feature a bigger display (with more pixels) that is 3.999 inches diagonally. Apple will keep the screen at a width of 1.9632 inches, but it will expand to 3.484 inches tall.

Apple is widely expected to release another iPhone following the debut of the iPhone 4S in October 2011, although the tech titan hasn’t announced anything. Industry consensus is that it will come out in the fall, one year after the 4S’s debut.

We may know more sooner than later. Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is just a couple of weeks away device fans are licking their chops in anticipation that Apple might make an announcement regarding the iPhone at the event, despite the fact that the company has said it will focus on software for the second year in a row.
