Rejected iPhone 5 Designs
Contest Directions: With the introduction of iPhone 5, Apple again raised the smartphone bar. Although it sports a new design to accommodate a wider and longer screen, the iPhone 5 is not a radical departure from Apple's successful formula. The device still transports its users into Apple's world of digital media and 700,000 mobile apps. The phone's screen was expanded to make it more comfortable to hold in your hand and operate with your thumb. The device is encased in glass and aluminum and, like previous models, comes in two colors, black and white, with a silver back.
Show possible rejected designs of iPhone 5 that didn't make it to the market for any reasons.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Yesterday, Apple released the long-awaited new iPhone, the iPhone 5 to the public. The thinnest and lightest iPhone in history possesses a new aluminum design, 4' Retina display, A6 chip and high-speed wireless communications technology. One of the main differences of the latest model the thickness is only 7.6 mm (thickness of previous models was 9.3 mm). In Apple, they boldly call the iPhone 5 the thinnest smart phone in the world. Even the weight changed - now, it is just 112 gm. The length of the new model is 123.8 mm (against 115.2 mm in 4S model) and width is 58.6 mm. The handset is manufactured in two colors - black with graphite and white with silver. The new iPhone is equipped with a 4' retina display with 1136 x 640 resolution. As experts predicted, the iPhone 5 requires a new sim card a Nano-sim (but not Micro-Sim, as it was earlier) and the iPhone 5 will not work at all with a Micro-Sim. Predictions with respect to ear phones became true - EarPods - their visual appearance has been changed. Now it looks different and the connector - Lightning. And this fact has raked more discontent amongst users since they now have to have more adapters for compatibility with other devices. As Apple says Lightning is smaller, smarter and more reliable when compared to the previous generation connector. Regarding the camera, it is as usual 8 MP but the size is reduced by more than 25% than the size in the iPhone 4S. The new iSight camera in the iPhone 5 possess a lens, coated with sapphire crystal, which is thinner and much more reliable when compared to the standard glass and can ensure a crystal clear picture. The new feature for creating panoramic images allows it to capture panoramic images with a 28 MP resolution by just moving the camera in space in a gradual movement. The new video features include improved stabilization, face detection while shooting a picture containing up to 10 people in a frame and the possibility to make photographs directly while video recording. The new FaceTime HD front camera allows you to make FaceTime calls with high definition, it can also be used for creating self-portraits and record HD video with 720p resolution. The iPhone 5 also has provision to share photographs with friends and family using the iCloud service. The battery life is increased. The iPhone 5 is powered with an iOS 6 operating system, which includes more than 200 new features, including a new Maps application with cartography, developed by Apple and step-by-step navigation; integration with Facebook; Passbook system ; and has more features and languages in Siri. LTE is not for all: The iPhone 5 supports high-speed wireless standards including LTE and DC-HSDPA and according to boasting, the Internet speed will be faster. It is true that LTE access is provided by a limited number of operators. The iPhone 5 is equipped with a dual-band Wi-Fi module of 802.11n standard for supporting wireless data transmission at up to 150 Mbps speeds. The IPhone 5 the most beautiful handset for users, which we have ever created, Philip Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple Inc, does not stint his praises. We incorporated a surprising number of innovations and advanced technologies in this fine and lightweight device, which is similar to jewellery, with an excellent 4' Retina display, lightning fast A6 chip, high-speed wireless data transfer technology and with even longer battery backup. We hope that the users shall simply admire it. The iPhone 5 will be made available to users in the USA, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the UK starting from Friday, September 21. Yesterday, Apple not only launched the new iPhone but also a new series of music players including the absolutely new iPod touch and a completely upgraded iPod nano. The new iPod touch is once again the thinnest iPod touch in the history, which possesses a 4' Retina display, 5MP iSight camera with the possibility to record HD video with 1080p resolution, A5 chip of Apple, intelligent assistant Siri and also an iOS 6 operating system. Some already referred it to the new iPhone but without the calling option. For the first time, the iPod touch is released in five bright colors. Nthe new iPod nano (needless to say, that it is also the thinnest in the history?) is equipped with a 2.5' Multi-Touch display, convenient control buttons, built-in Bluetooth for wireless listening and is manufactured in seven new colors. Ladies all over the world are urgently updating their wish lists. Apple also launched a new iTunes version for Mac and PC, including a completely redesigned player and close integration with iCloud. Information appeared on the eve of the launch of the new phone from Apple that the release of the new iPhone will increase the U.S. GDP by 0.5%. This news was reported by Reuters referring to calculations by Michael Feroli, the Chief Economist of J. P. Morgan. According to his estimates, sales of the iPhone 5 will increase the US. GDP by 3.2 billion USD in a very short period and the annual GDP increase by 12.8 billion. In 2012, according to Ferola, the GDP will grow thanks to the sales of the new gadget by 0.33-0.5%.
