File this one under unsubstantiated analyst hearsay, but Daiwa Securities is claiming the iPhone 5 will be announced at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference this upcoming June. WWDC would certainly be the reasonable time and place to launch the next iPhone. The only detail beyond that provided by the analyst is that the iPhone 5 will keep using glass to glass touch panels, but beyond that, we're still in the dark about what specifically the iPhone 5 will offer. It might be bigger (or not), it might be thinner than the iPhone 4 and have a 13 megapixel camera, maybe it'll have LTE...

It's really all a crap-shoot at this point. I'm sure whatever Apple ends up launching, whenever they launch it, is going to be insanely popular just like every other phone they've made. Unless, of course, you think Apple products will lose something vital with Steve Jobs no longer in the picture... What would you guys like to see in the next iPhone? Is it a safe bet we'll see something official this summer?
