Sorry, as we reported yesterday, there’s no iPhone 5. The latest, which we just confirmed, is that the iPhone 4S will be the same design as the iPhone 4. The price will be $199 for the entry level iPhone 4S — and will be released at Apple Stores on October 14th (update: it’s the iPhone 4 that’s $99, scroll to the bottom for a wrap up…). According to our sources, the company will soon show off an iPhone 4S — a device that keeps the same exterior as the iPhone 4 but has updated specs including a faster A5 processor, better 8MP camera and Assistant Voice Recognition.
