The last couple years no one was able to guess the iPhone release, but that has all changed now. When Will Apple member Baz has taken the gold this time, with his guess of October 14th, winning $200 in Apple cash!
No one correctly guessed the name, so there is not bonus prize being awarded, but Baz…you were very close.
I’d like to thank everyone for participating in this years poll and wish you luck for next year.

It’s that magical time of year when our “biggest and prizeiest” release poll, for the next generation iPhone, is ending (with no winners, sorry guys, but I’m happy I haven’t had to pick up a second job to support this website just yet) and the latest iPhone is hitting store shelves…[record scratching noise]…but not this year! Unfortunately, for all of us, it’s late June and we are just starting our release poll for the iPhone 5 / iPhone 4s (or whatever the next generation 2011 iPhone will be called), “scheduled” for release sometime in the next several months. So even though we aren’t playing with our new iPhones right now, this is our favorite time of year here, as the second generation iPhone release was the reason for creating When Will Apple in the first place.
The winner of this poll will get their hands on a brand new iPhone 5 / iPhone 4s1…and don’t forget that bonus prize2, just like last year.
The rumors have been flowing in 2011, unlike last year where the iPhone 4 rumor faucet was brought to a drip, overshadowed by the imminent release of the first iPad. The rumors seemed crazy (or maybe I just didn’t want to believe), as most pointed to no iPhone in June, thanks to WWDC 2011 being “all about the software”.
Along with the release of the next iPhone, there is an impressive update coming to iOS. The next version, iOS 5, finally brings in the so desperately need notification center. No longer can the hordes of Andriod users make fun of us for [Do-do-do...close], make fun of us for always getting [Do-do-do...close], for always being interrupted! There are lots of other goodies, but notifications was my last big, glaring, missing piece of iOS that’s bugged me ever since I got the iPhone…so now I’m free to look for new things to hate.
After you place your official vote in the poll, take a second to give us your thoughts in the comment section. Also, this is how you can get in on that bonus prize! Login to When Will Apple, then in the comment section giveus your guess for the new iPhone name, along with whatever else is on your mind, for a chance to win a $50 iTunes gift card. What will they call it? iPhone 5? iPhone 4s? iPhone 4 plus? iPhone 4? Only Steve Jobs and 3 other people probably have that info, but it won’t stop you from guessing.
Submit only one official guess for the iPhone name. You can comment on all the names that you think, but please note which one is your official guess for the contest. Those of you that have already left comments with more than one name, please post a new comment with your official guess and I will update your comment with this info. If you do not update your comment, you will not be eligible for the contest.
Example Comment with more than one guess:
Official Guess: iPhone HD. I also think it could be called iPhone 4G. I can’t wait to get it whatever it’s called!
1 Prize issued in the form of a $200USD Apple store gift card for US residents only
Alternate Prize for non US residents in prize eligible countries: $200USD iTunes gift card
2 $50USD iTunes bonus prize is independent of guessing the correct date. If you are lucky enough to win the grand prize, then you will not be eligible for the iPhone name prize…sharing is caring. The same rules of the polls apply to this bonus prize; including being a registered user of When Will Apple and leaving your official name guess comment with your registered user account. One winner will be selected at random from all eligible entrants with the correct iPhone 5th gen official name.
