AppleInsider reports today that Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray joined the rumor mill and agrees that the next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 5, will launch later than the usual summer time frame.
Specifically, there is agreement that the device will launch in September. Munster notes that, on average, there are 79 days between Apple’s iOS software events and iPhone hardware announcements.
He further notes that there has been an average of 99 days between the software event and the actual ship date of a new iPhone.
Based on that data, if Apple reveals iOS 5 at WWDC, averages say that an iPhone 5 announcement is due August 24 with a shipping date of September 13, 2011.
September 13 eh. Thoughts?
