A video of an alleged iPhone part shows Apple's next smartphone screen… (Macotakara )
A new report on the Web suggests Apple is far in the process of its next iPhone and could launch the device before October, as has previously been the date expected by most Apple observers.
Apple's development of its next iteration of iOS is far in the process and meeting an October deadline will be easy, should the company not experience any trouble getting parts and assembling the products.
"So 'easy', in fact, that an earlier release is possible," says the report published Thursday by 9 to 5 Mac.
Along with updates on the phone and operating system's progress, the report says iOS 6 will also feature a brand new app by Apple. However, the report does not go into details as to what exactly that new app will be.
More good news for people thinking about buying the next iPhone is that the amount of RAM it will carry is expected to be double what the iPhone 4S has. The 9 to 5 Mac report says the next iPhone will have 1 GB of RAM, the same as the current iPad.
At the same time as all this news, a video showing the alleged cover for the sixth generation iPhone has also emerged on the Web.
The Japanese blog Macotakara filmed the part, which seems to match many of the recent reports that the next iPhone will have a larger screen. The video shows the alleged part next to an older iPhone.
Clearly the phone is much longer, and based off of Macotakara's images, boasts a 4.07-inch screen but it seems to be about the same width.
