Fusible reports that Apple has filed an intellectual property claim with world Intellectual Property Organization to gain control of the domain iPhone5.com. This website is basically a small forum to discuss about the rumors of upcoming iPhone, in this case iPhone 5 as this domain was acquired in October 2010 after the release of iPhone 4. Seems like Apple is going to name the next iPhone as iPhone 5 and hence they are starting to work on the brand name.
Before the release of iPhone 4S, there were many rumors that Apple will name the iPhone as iPhone 5 while some where of the opinion that the name would be simply iPhone 4S. Eventually the name turned out to be iPhone 4S. The same thing happened with the new iPad. People thought that the name for the next generation iPad would be iPad 3 but it turned out to be 'The New iPad'. Now that Apple is on its way to release a new iPhone, the speculations and rumors have started all over again. People now think that the name for the new iPhone would be simply 'The New iPhone' inspired from the original iPhone. Lets wait and watch.
Apple usually obtains the domain names after it launches a product which would ensure no disclosure of upcoming releases. Apple took control of iPhone4.com 1 yeah after the launch of iPhone 4 and Apple didn't gain control of iPhone4S.com until several weeks after that device launched in October.
