3G iPhone Release Date is Around the Corner

You’ve been hearing stories about this over the past couple of weeks–iPhones have been unavailble for purchase due to low supplies worldwide (EG – London, NYC, etc). We know that Rogers has announced the iPhone is coming to Canada, but there were no details given. However, some new evidence has come up just recently though.

Oh No! The Apple Store Says iPhones are Unavailable!

The Apple Store online won’t even let you purchase iPhones online! That’s right folks, iPhones are shown as “Unavailable” on Apple’s website. This is a pretty good sign that the 3G iPhone is on its way. As for the release date, a good announcement date would most likely be at the Apple WWDC happening on June 9th, as most rumors have been mentioning.

Confirmation of 3G iPhone Capabilites in latest iPhone Firmware 2.0 Beta Release?

Another piece of evidence that supports an imminent 3G iPhone release is located within the current beta version 5 of iPhone firmware 2.0 (list of features here). A new screenshot has appeared on the web that indicates an option to “Enable 3G” as “Using 3G loads data faster, but decreases battery life.” Pretty interesting stuff I must say, but like I’ve always mentioned before we’re going to have to continue counting down the days till the June 9th WDC.Until then, happy waiting!

    I think it’s going to be this week. There’s no way they will have no stock for the next 3 weeks. If it does come out this week without any big announcement then the form factor probably won’t change much. I don’t think WWDC is a good place to announce it anyway, if they announce it early then they can spend the conference talking about xcode touch or whatever it’s called rather then the new hardware features of the iphone.

  • I completely agree! There’s no way they will have the iPhone OOS for so long. Let’s wait and see… πŸ™‚
