As each launch approaches, the public eagerly anticipates the latest Apple product. This being the first new phone since the passing of the company’s founder Steve Jobs & perhaps the most important product to come this year for the company who banks on revenue generated by their phone sales. Newspapers reporting that this launch may even turn around the entire US economy. (no pressure...)
