Report: Apple to debut next-gen iPhone in October
Ok Apple fans, you know those rumors about the iPhone 5 coming out in late September? It looks like you will have to wait a bit longer before lining up to throw cash in Apple’s coffers.
Actually, according to Digital Trends, you will have to wait until October before fighting the other fanboys for the next-gen iPhone.
Sources with insider knowledge say the recent Gizmodo report claiming AT&T cancelled employee vacations in the last two weeks of September due to the market debut of the next-gen iPhone are wrong.
"I don’t know why AT&T’s calling for all hands on deck those weeks, but it’s not for an iPhone launch," a source familiar with Apple’s plans said.
So when does the iPhone 5 get released to the drooling masses?
Well, the source claims it will be in "October" but did not give an exact date. Other mysterious tech insiders said it could arrive later in the month, instead of earlier.
Again, there weren’t many details about the iPhone 5’s design, but the rumors from supply-chain insiders indicate the iPhone 5 will boast a faster A5 processor like the iPad 2. It is also believed that it will be equipped with Qualcomm dual mode GSM/CDMA baseband, along with a more powerful eight-megapixel rear camera.
No one truly knows when the iPhone 5 is coming out. It’s all rumor at this point. Maybe Apple is trying to make such an awesome iPhone that they want to take their time with it.
It’s their art after all, so why wouldn’t they want it be perfect?
