New iPhone ready to roll in September?

iPhone 5 rumors abound.

Apple didn't say one word about the next iPhone at WWDC last week, but it seems the next-generation smartphone is ready to rock your world this fall. 9 To 5 Mac says it has learnt from "a previously accurate Apple source" that the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S has reached final testing stage and is on track for a September launch.

High-level Apple and carrier executives are said to be toting the new iPhone model already, as the device reached what is known as AP stage--limited final testing before mass production. WWDC used to be the launch stage for new iPhone models, but now the next iPhone is expected to be unveiled at Apple's event in September.

However, this year's Apple September event could mark the launch date for not only a new iPhone, but also for a final version of iOS5, which Apple has said will arrive this fall. All-in-all, September seems to be the most likely time Apple will reveal the next-generation iPhone, which may come with a final version of iOS5, as well as an iPod touch refresh.

Rumors are split over the naming of the next iPhone. Some say it will be a major redesign, and it will be called the iPhone 5, while more recent speculation points to the name of iPhone 4S, an evolution from the current model. There was no leaked prototype this year, so tipsters are banking on an A5 dual-core chip inside the new iPhone, along with an improved camera, possibly 8-megapixels.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
