Apple is poised to launch a new iPhone product this fall, and the tech blogs are chomping at the bit.

I must confess, I'm as curious as anyone else about the next big thing, and the new iPhone which will likely release this fall has the world's attention for a few reasons. These are detailed in a story from PC World.

Perhaps the most intriguing element is Apple's upcoming mobile operating system, iOS 5. This has already been revealed by Apple, and it promises to allow The iPhone, The iPod Touch and The iPad to stay up-to-date via the Internet, rather than by syncing locally with a PC.

There is also The iCloud, which may improve the accessibility of data across devices and render other online sync services obsolete.

As for the specifications of the device itself, rumors abound, but Apple is staying mum.
