Countdown to iPhone 5, iOS 6 event starts

By Alan Ng - Aug 1, 2012

The iPhone 5 puzzle is now starting to come together very nicely. After showing you images of an alleged fully assembled sixth generation iPhone, it now looks like we have the magical date for when Apple is going to show off their new prized asset to the world.

Firstly, if you haven’t seen the pictures yet – you really should here. It’s the first time we’ve seen the device put together with all of the rumored component parts and it basically matches up with all of the speculation on the device over the last months. It essentially shows off that taller display screen close to 4-inch, as well as the redesigned back casing of the device which will now surely feature three panels with aluminum materials in the middle.

Here’s where it gets exciting though, as iMore has recently published a report claiming that the iPhone 5 is going to be unveiled on Wednesday September 12. Since Apple hasn’t announced any event date yet, you may dismiss this as just another iPhone rumor, but this time things are a little different.

Moments after iMore published that report, the date that they supplied had been verified by number of other reputable sources. AllThingsD have also said that the date is accurate for Apple’s next iPhone event, while Jim Dalrymple who is thought to be well connected to Apple has said in his latest Loop insight that this is the real deal as well.

Presuming that the date is correct, it also means that we should be seeing the iPhone 5 launch at the end of September, instead of the end of October as some of you were expecting. It also applies to the highly anticipated iOS 6 software update as well, although there has been no mention of Apple’s 7-inch ‘Mini’ iPad in all of this.
