Rumors of the day: Apple’s Map plans, iPhone 5


Here are the latest rumors circulating in the Apple blogosphere:

“MacRumors” ( says that “despite statements by Google’s former CEO that Apple had “just” renewed their Map partnership with Google, there appears to be evidence that Apple has been working on its own mapping solution in iOS 5. My take: why not? Apple likes to control the “whole widget,” as Steve Jobs once said. And I do mean the WHOLE thing.

Recent market rumors — as reported by “DigiTimes” ( have indicated that Apple’s iPhone 5 is likely to come with a dual-LED flash with Taiwan-based LED packaging firms Everlight Electronics, Edison Opto and Lite-On Technology being pinpointed as potential suppliers. My take: this rumor is on the money.
