Conspiracy theories are doing their usual rounds. In late 2010, Apple ordered several Sprint-compliant cell towers to be put up on its California campus. Leaving jokes about AT&T’s network service aside, one has to wonder what Apple would want with such towers. A logical connection is quickly made back to the time when Verizon towers made their way to the Apple campus, which we now know took place when Apple was testing the Verizon iPhone. Common sense dictates that Apple must now be testing an iPhone to be used with Sprint’s network? It’s not entirely surprising, since we’ve been expecting to see a Sprint iPhone 4S for quite some time now.
The real question is, when will this phone finally make it’s debut? Also, will it have 4G? Will it be a common model across all three networks or a Sprint-exclusive?
If this is the iPhone 5 that Apple plans to soon-release, then it won’t likely have 4G “support”. Rumor has it that the same model will also have a T-Mobile variant. Further, sources told 9to5Mac that Sprint/T-Mobile and AT&T/Verizon will get a new model alternately. We’re not sure where that would leave the device if a T-Mobile/AT&T merger does take place.
Those who have spotted the currently-in-testing iPhone have said that it looks similar to the current iPhone 4. Looks like there won’t be any shock discoveries to be made in pub this time around.
