iPhone 5 production might only start in September
The unannounced iPhone 5 is in the news again, this time thanks to a rumor that will not be well received by Apple fans.
Business Insider is reporting that, according to Avian Securities, Apple’s new smartphone will enter production in September. The rumor is based on conversations with an unnamed “key component supplier.”
Assuming this is true, WWDC 2011 (scheduled to take place between June 6 and June 10) is likely not the place where iPhone 5 will be officially announced. Moreover, if production only starts in September, the new iPhone will be released towards the end of the year, of even in early 2012.
I really don’t think Apple wants to see the year ending without a new iPhone on the market, so I’d say a launch in 2012 is impossible.
According to previously unveiled details, the iPhone 5 could look like in the image above, featuring a large display (4 inches), a dual-core processor, and an 8MP camera.
