White or Black—You Decide

Although companies like Nokia have been delivering multiple color options in their smartphone line, Apple has so far balked at the idea. Instead, the iPhone maker has only offered a white or black iPhone. When the iPhone 5 launches, expect Apple to do the same and only offer a white or black version.
Apple's iPhone 5 is widely expected to hit store shelves at some point this year. Some reports suggest that the company will launch the device over the summer, while others say it'll probably hit store shelves toward the end of the year in October or November. Either way, it's clear that Apple will be launching a new smartphone this year, and as long as it doesn't follow its iPad branding strategy, it'll probably be known as the iPhone 5. As with all other Apple launches, rumors about the iPhone 5 are constantly circulating on the Internet. Just about anyone with access to the Internet and a keen interest in Apple products has been joining in the speculation about what new features will appear in iPhone 5. Others make it their mission to sort through the rumors to find the precious few items that might actually make sense. Here's a look at only those features that actually have the best chance of showing up in the iPhone 5. From the simple to the sophisticated, all of the following features will be making their way to the iPhone 5. You can bank on it.
