Recent iPhone 5 and OS X Lion Rumors do not contain any truth.
I admit we are a slave for the Apple Rumor mill. Any bit of information about Apple brings eyeballs to the site. Additionally I am also a sucker for every bit of news and rumors about Apple, the next iPhone, may it be an iPhone 4S or an iPhone 5. Lot's of the Apple rumors we carried in the past weeks though turned out to have no truth to them. I have been thinking several times to just invent my own rumors as it would not make any difference. The OS X Lion release or the MacBook Air release are a prime example for wrong rumors. The MacBook Air is supposed to be released already in April according to this rumor we carried in early April. It is still not here. The OS X Lion release date was thought to be last Thursday according to most rumors before that day. OS X Lion is still not here. Obviously the iPhone 5 is not here yet and we cannot really confirm what rumors are going to be true. iPhone 5 rumors are though all over the place and we are not any wiser on what the iPhone 5 will be like yet.
