What I'm Willing to Bet About the iPhone 5

There have been literally thousands of rumors and photos of "leaked parts" of Apple's new iPhone (which should all be taken with a bug pinch of salt), slated to be released as soon as September. 

I've listed the things that I think are accurate about Apple's much-rumored iPhone 5 and how much I'm willinh to bet on it. (let's make $100 the highest bet) Of course, I'm not gonna really put my money at stake, but just think of it as a measure to see how plausible the rumor is. 

 $100 The new iPhone will have a much smaller connector jack. 
The stories about this are everywhere. It makes a lot of sense that Apple will get rid of the 30-pin dock connector that's been on their products for more than a decade. 

 $60 The iPhone 5 will have a dual-core processor. 
It looks like people are wishing for quad-core chips, but in my opinion dual-core should be fast enough for a smartphone. Also, more cores mean more power to run the chip, and having a quad-core would have a huge impact on battery life. (unless Apple does some fancy programming to make it all work)

 $70 It will have 4G capabilities
It's pretty obvious, looking at how the new iPad has the capability. 

 $40 It will have the same screen aspect ratio as the current iPhone 4S
Some say it will have a taller screen, but it looks quite- unidealistic to me. The elongatated body doesn't look as cool, and also developers will have to update their apps to fit the new ratio if that happens. So, I'd say it will have the same 3:2 aspect ratio. Can't say anything about the screen getting larger, though. Maybe. 

 $70 The camera will be on the right side of the phone (when seen from the back)
I don't think a lot of people have thought about it, but a feature that lets you take photos by pressing the "volume up button" was added in iOS 5, but you realize it's a little awkward taking photos like that in landscape. 

Normal cameras should have both the shutter button and the lens on the top part of the phone, but you can't do that with the current models. The button is on the right side of the phone, and the camera on the left(again, when viewed from the back). Either the button or the camera has to come to the bottom.
If the lens on the iPhone 5 is placed closer to the button, we'll be able to take pictures, more like a normal digital camera. 

 $100 The iPhone 5 won't be called the iPhone 5. 
My guess is, it will be called "the new iPhone", just like the new iPad launched a few months back.
Even if it's not called the new iPhone, it probably won't be called the iPhone 5 because, it actually is a 6th generation iPhone. (the iPhone 4S was the 5th.) So I guess it will be called the iPhone 6 if it's not "the new iPhone", but I'll be betting on "the new iPhone" if I had to.
