The Apple iPhone 5! It exists, probably. As we noted back in March, gossip about a next-generation iPhone has been burbling across the Web for a while now, which makes sense –– Apple refreshes or reboots all of its products on a yearly basis, and the last iPhone was unveiled last June. This week comes news that the iPhone 5 could hit shelves in September, a couple months off the usual pace, but perfect for back-to-school and the holiday shopping season.

According to Reuters, which cites "three people with direct knowledge of the company's supply chain," Apple's latest touchscreen handset will look more or less like the old touchscreen handset. But the iPhone 5 is likely to get a faster processor, Reuters reports. Meanwhile, over at PC Mag, the list of possible improvements on the new iPhone includes a better antenna and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. (The current iPhone 4 sports a 5-megapixel model.)
