The Apple Roundup: The totally-not-a-secret iPhone 5


With so many people writing about Apple, finding the best stories and reports isn’t easy.┬áHere’s our daily pick of stories about the company from around the Web that you shouldn’t miss:

  • Is this what the iPhone 5, set to be introduced a week from today, will look like? iMore, which has nailed a series of scoops on the device this year, says it is.
  • If it feels to you like this next iPhone is the worst-kept secret Apple’s had in years, you’re not alone. Fortune looks at how times have changed in the world of Apple rumor blogs.
  • A downside to all these leaks? A Chinese company has designed a phone that copies the iPhone 5 mockups — and has even gone as far as to attempt patenting the design in China before Apple’s phone launches in the country. (via Wired)
  • Yet another downside to dozens of mockups and iPhone 5 parts floating around the web: it lets polls, like this one by Business Insider asking if the widely leaked design of the iPhone 5 is ugly before it’s actually introduced, be taken.
  • We already know Apple is selling twice as many iPads as Macs to schools. But a new market research report says iPads are outselling Windows PCs in the education market as well. (via Apple Insider)
