Ready for yet another iPhone 5-related rumor? Good. Here you go.
Contrary to the latest report we heard on the matter, apparently production for Apple’s next iPhone hasn’t started yet. That said, the iPhone 5 is currently in what’s called EVT3, or the third ‘engineering verification test’. After all the EVTs are finished, there’s also a ‘design verification test’ stage to go through. Judging from what happened with past Apple iPhone releases, there’s about a month between the last EVT and the first DVT.
So there you have it. Despite this, however, the device is still on track for a fall release, either at the end of September or the beginning of October. It will come with 4G LTE support, as well as NFC and 1 GB of RAM. That’s double the amount that can be found in the iPhone 4S, by the way.
