There have been many rumors circulating regarding Apple’s next-generation iPhone. As to whether you buy into the rumors or not, it is almost certain that Apple will be pushing out a new iPhone this year, at least that’s what they should be doing if they don’t want a bunch of their users to jump ship onto Android or Windows Phone 7.
We reported that Deutsche Telekom has reportedly started taking pre-orders for the iPhone 5, and now it appears that maybe that wasn’t such a bad idea after all. According to Fast Company who is citing an “inside source”, Apple may be launching the iPhone 5 on the 19th or 26th of September, with pre-orders starting either during the week or a week prior to those dates.
The device is then reported to be made available in the first week of October, a time frame in which many are agreeing is plausible. Once again, rumors are best taken with a grain of salt. Many websites and blogs have been known to cite “inside sources” but given how tight Apple security is regarding leaks, we’ll have to take it at face value.
However with October only three weeks away and September 19th and 26th not too far off, I guess only time will tell.
