Apple Roundup: iPhone 5 Specs, iPhone Worth

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The top Apple (AAPL - Get Report) tidbits from around the Internet include more iPhone 5 rumors and chatter about how much your iPhone's worth to you.

As the iPhone 5 gets closer to becoming a reality for consumers, there's no shortage of rumors about what the latest smartphone from Apple will contain.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the phone will be materially slimmer than its predecessors, with Apple utilizing in-cell touchscreen technology.

This technology will allow Apple to integrate touch sensors into the LCD, eliminating one layer of the phone. It could also help cut costs and simplify Apple's supply chain even further, according to The Journal.

Apple could not be immediately reached for comment for this story.

Noted Apple bull Gene Munster, an analyst at Piper Jaffray, has put together a rather interesting survey, showing that the iPhone is more valuable to users than any other phone.

Munster polled more than 400 people and asked them to value how much their phone. The average value of an iPhone is $313.27, according to the 208 iPhone users in the poll. By comparison, the average value of an Android was $219.99. Surprisingly, the BlackBerry smartphone value was just below the Android, at $219.27. Google (GOOG - Get Report) makes the Android operating system, while BlackBerry phones are made by Research In Motion (RIMM).

Shares of Apple are lower today, off 0.59% to $603.35.
