With the overwhelming success of the iPhone 4S, Apple enthusiasts will be glad to hear that Steve Jobs had a chance to work on the iPhone 5 before he died.

According to a blog post, Rodman & Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar said the iPhone 5 will be a "cult classic" due to Jobs's involvement.

Jobs died Oct. 5, with the cause of death listed as respiratory arrest.

The iPhone 4S launched nine days later. Within the first three days, more than 4 million units were sold. That was more than double the amount sold when the last model of the iPhone was launched.

The iPhone 5 is expected to launch in the summer of 2012.
