A report from BGR today contradicts an earlier report that stated the next-gen iPhone is already in production. We did not cover the report initially due to the many suspect claims. The BGR report claims that early EVT/DVT prototypes of the new iPhone are in production, but full, final runs are still relatively far off. The development stages of the iPhone were also dicussed by developer @chronic yesterday:

Additionally, BGR runs down some next-gen iPhone specs, which we were first to reveal, including: NFC, 1GB of RAM, LTE, and an early fall release window.
