If you needed further confirmation that the iPhone 5 won’t be releasing this Summer, this is probably is it. It has now been reported by a very reputable source that the iPhone 5 will now be arriving this September, with production of the next generation iPhone due to start in July.
That source is none other than Reuters, who have been told the information by three different sources who are familiar with the matter – yeah that old one again. Anyway, the main point here is that the iPhone 5 won’t be shown at WWDC for a change, but instead at Apple’s Fall event in September.
Reuters add in their report that the design is going to be the same as the iPhone 4, as detailed in our article yesterday, and they back up strong speculation that the iPhone 5 will include a dual-core processor, most likely to be the A5 processor as seen in the iPad 2.
What do you make of this fresh confirmation from Reuters? Considering that they have decided to publish this, it’s highly likely that this information is accurate, more so than it would be from say the WSJ as they have been wrong about Apple rumors once or twice in the past.
iPhone 5 this September folks – give us your thoughts.
