Apple will only unveil one new iPhone next week at Cupertino, according to an analyst, and it will support voice recognition.
Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster believes that the tagline included on Apple's official invites to the media event on Tuesday 4 October - 'Let's talk iPhone' - is a clear hint at one of the key capabilities the iPhone 5 will have, Apple Insider reports .
Voice recgonition in iOS 5 is something that has long been rumoured - Apple acquired speech technology companies Siri and Nuance in 2011 and the feature is heavily used on the rival Android platform.
Both Siri and Nuance provide speech-based apps for the iPhone so integration into iOS 5 doesn't seem to be out of the question. However, no reference to this feature was made at the WorldWide Developer Conference in June.
The number one on the phone icon on the invite could be a hint that Apple will only unveil one new iPhone and Munster doesn't expect Apple to announce a low-cost model. "We expect Apple to continue with a lead device (iPhone 5) that carriers sell subsidized for $199/$299 along with a previous generation device (iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S) for $99," he said in a note to investors.
