Whether or not Apple will call its 2012 iPhone the iPhone 5 remains to be seen, but at least now Apple owns the iPhone5.com domain name if they do decide to use that name for their next smartphone.
The iPhone5.com domain name was registered back in 2008, and Apple took a complaint to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and has now won the dispute over the domain name.
The domain iPhone5.com is now being held by a brand protection company, which may have been used by Apple to take ownership of the domain, Apple will probably not use the iPhone5.com domain name, as in most cases when they have obtained domain names in the past it has been do as a protective measure.
