iPhone 5 will launch in September or October, new rumor claims
With or without LTE support, with or without a quad-core processor, with or without an IGZO screen, the iPhone 5 (or whatever Apple decides to call it) may not arrive this summer. Unlike what the previous gossip on the matter claimed, today’s rumor says Apple intends to keep its fall release schedule for the iPhone going for many years to come. That fall schedule has been first used in releasing the iPhone 4S last year.
If for no other reason than the record sales the iPhone 4S got even if it does look exactly the same as its predecessor and doesn’t come with many new features, this makes a lot of sense. At least it makes a lot more sense than Apple launching a new smartphone less than a year after the iPhone 4S was unveiled.
The current rumor comes from an “Asian reliable source” that told this to Macotakara. BGR then chimed in a reminded us of a past report that claimed the exact same thing, alongside an alleged redesign coming for the next iPhone, which will feature a unibody aluminum shape (seen in the mockup above) and redone antenna system (finally).
So will it be this summer, or will it be in the fall when the next iPhone gets announced? What do you think?
