The mills continue to churn…

The oft rumored ‘next-iPhone’ or more popularly ’iPhone 5′ is in the news again…and pretty much for the same reason, hey.

According to Bloomberg sources, who are apparently “familiar with the plans”, the next iPhone is all set to release in September and will feature a faster processor and a bumped up camera.

“The device will include the A5 processor, the more powerful chip that Apple added to the iPad 2 earlier this year, along with an 8-megapixel camera, up from the 5-megapixel model in the iPhone 4, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t public.”

Additionally, the sources also claim that Apple is working on a high-resolution iPad 3 as well. The resolution will be “similar to the one now used in iPhone 4″ and about “one-third higher” than the iPad 2 (which goes against the increments Apple usually implements for easier apps scaling).

Further on, the sources also mentions a cheaper iPhone, rumored a few months back. Although it doesn’t seem like Apple will be announcing anything on that front, the sources say that work on a low-end iPhone is in process.
