Al Gore confirms multiple iPhone releases

Former US vice president, Apple board member and maker of scary movies can't keep a secret.

Toby Shapshak, CRN's South African bureau chief, has unearthed the most conclusive iPhone 5 release evidence yet. He heard Apple board member and former US vice president Al Gore seemingly confirming our suspicions of a budget iPhone 4S arriving alongside the iPhone 5.

The man who once claimed to have invented the internet trailed off a sentence with, " not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month.”

So, not only can we expect the rumoured October 4th iPhone 5 release date to be correct, but from his pluralisation there should be more than one iPhone.

Chances are there will be a top end iPhone 5 and a slightly more affordable option in the iPhone 4S, which will likely be an iPhone 4 case loaded with a slightly bumped spec. Normally we wouldn’t trust a politician but this is Al Gore, saviour of the environment. He wouldn’t lie, would he?
