'Steve Jobs helped design, develop next two generations of iPhone'

Washington -  Late Apple founder Steve Jobs may have been involved in the design and development of the next two generations of the iPhone.

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón, who had been interviewing cell phone makers and wireless service providers about the rash of phone thefts in Silicon Valley, said he was disheartened by the lack of commitment toward hardware solutions to the problem, such as "kill switch" for stolen devices, reports Fox News.

But he revealed a tantalizing bit of information - that according to Apple's government liaison, Michael Foulkes, the company was unable to add such a device to the next two generations of phones because they have already been developed, under Steve Jobs.

The latest Apple rumour has it that a new model - likely called the "iPhone 5S"- will be unveiled at a June event and go on sale shortly thereafter in July. A low-cost iPhone likely aimed at developing markets in India and China will be unveiled in August, the rumours suggest.

The iPhone 5S is expected to feature a faster A7 processor, an upgraded camera and possibly a fingerprint chip under the Home button for improved security.

A smartwatch from the company is also in the works, and likely to be unveiled this year.
