Re: Iphone 5 email from Apple.

Does not sound right.  Ask your friend to forward a copy of the email to you.  As for an iPhone 5, some new model will be out this fall.  What it will be called is unknown.

Re: Iphone 5 email from Apple.

its going to be crap. the next iphone is apparently being built using cheaper components so that apple can lower the cost for customers to boost sales. However, an AWS banded model( T-Mobile uses AWS 3g bands) has been rumored to be in beta, if not production now. Anxious to see what these "cheaper" components are going to equate to.

Since Apple hasn't officially announced anything about the next iPhone (whatever it's going to called), I can't see Apple sending out emails to people about it.

Please post this email.

 

The iPhone5 is rumored to be released in the fall - it should pretty much be an iPhone4 with both CDMA and GSM radios, and the iPad2 CPU.

 

No one has sent me any emails, nor have any of my friends that work at Apple said anything about a suprise early release of the iP5.

I think we all know Apple well enough that if this was a true email, it would be all over the blogs.  I would also question why Apple passed on the opportunity for a big splash presentation at some keynote.  This was either a fake or some internal email to very select individuals helping to launch the next email and was under a NDA that was broken when the OP was told of the email.

Smells like a phishing email to me, or someone offering cheap foreign-made knockoffs.

Probably a bogus email but if it really did come from Apple, perhaps the email was about IOS 5, not Iphone 5.

An email about iOS 5 sounds more likely. Your friend would not have received an email about the iPhone 5 when Apple hasn't even made their announcement yet.
