Another rumor that is currently spreading is the fact that the phone will have an advanced Wi-Fi chip that will boost its battery-life. According to World News Resource, the new chip is known as the Broadcom BCM4334 and will serve a variety of purposes, primarily Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0.

However, the rumor that has been most widely speculated about has been the phone’s imminent release date. Apple has made no official announcement, but according to the Chicago Tribune, launch for the iPhone 5 is widely expected in October. Many expect that Apple will make the announcement during the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) where CEO Tim Cook is rumored to give the keynote speech. Many speculators claim that the phone is ahead of schedule and may be released as soon as this summer.
