One search pulls up results for both the iPhone 5 and new iTunes press releases, while a second search reveals a link to a “New iTunes” page on apple.com
As noted by several MacRumors readers, searches for “iPhone-5″ on Apple’s site are currently yielding a number of search results revealing that Apple will indeed be calling the new iPhone the “iPhone 5″. The results point to several currently-inactive iPhone 5 pages including the press release announcement and a “tips” page. (Thanks, Johan!)
