According to insiders at investment company Rodman and Renshaw, the iPhone 4S may not have been Steve Jobs’ last project. An analyst at the company has confirmed that the next generation iPhone took up much Jobs’ last months with Apple:
The next-generation iPhone 5 ‘was the last project that Steve Jobs was intimately involved with from concept to final design.’
CNET has reported the new model to have a slimmer profile and larger screen, developments that many expected from the recently released iPhone 4S. The new iPhone will also purportedly feature LTE, or 4G.
Many people, including Ashok Kumar, the analyst whose notes were circulated, believe that this new model of phone will hold special cult status for Apple enthusiasts, given its link with Jobs.
He also reported that the iPhone 5 is now scheduled for release in the summer of 2012 around or during the Apple Developer’s Conference.
