'iPhone 4 to be free' when new iPhones ship

iPhone 4S and 5 to be dual-mode. Other changes leaked

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Upon Tuesday's rollout of the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, the existing iPhone 4 will be offered for the low, low price of nothing at all when purchased with a presumably two-year contract.

That is, if a pricing roundup leaked to MacDailyNews from "a sole source [who] has provided reliable information of Apple’s moves in the past" is accurate.

MacDailyNews warns that the leaked price sheet is to be regarded merely as a rumor, and we agree. But the specs included along with the prices are interesting nonetheless.

For one, the iPhone 4 – currently available in 16GB and 32GB models – will contain only 8GB of storage.

The iPhone 4S – $99 for 16GB, $199 for 32GB – will be bumped up from an A4 processor to an A5, as is in the iPad 2. In addition, both the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 – $299 for 32GB, $399 for 64GB – will be dual-mode GSM/CDMA handsets with 1GB of RAM, up from 512MB in the iPhone 4.

In addition, the iPhone 4S, like the iPhone 4, will have a 5-megapixel back-facing camera, while the iPhone 5's main camera will be an 8-megapixel shooter. The iPhone 4S is listed as being available in both black and white, while no color information is given for the new iPhone 5.

As we said, these are single-source rumors, so take them with the requisite grains of salt – but, hey, what's an Apple product roll-out without a healthy dollop of delicious rumor-mongering? ®
