iPhone 5 to Launch in Late October Instead of September?

Share:

Some more iPhone 5 rumours are coming your way, this time via John Paczkowski from AllThingsD. According to his sources, the iPhone 5 will be an ‘October surprise’ rather than be announced in September. His source refutes recent reports AT&T employees in the US received blacked out vacation periods during the end of September:

“I don’t know why AT&T’s calling for all hands on deck those weeks, but it’s not for an iPhone launch,” a source familiar with Apple’s plans said.

So, when can we expect the company to uncrate the iPhone 5?

“October,” the source said, while declining to offer a hard launch date. Other sources said it will be later in the month rather than earlier.

iOS 5 is set to launch in September, and if Apple holds their annual September iPod Event, a simultaneous Phone 5 announcement could take place and would coincide perfectly. If the event takes place in mid/early September, Apple could announce release dates for weeks later, to take place in October. Add in the industry connections ATD has (they host the annual D conference), and this story might have a little weight.

As August passes, expect even juicier iPhone 5 rumours to ‘develop’. Let’s hope for decent Fall weather for those line ups, eh?

    This coming from a person too scared to make a profile and back up any reaction from within the forum for such immature and pathetic comments. I mean how sad are you if you’re too afraid to type words from the comfort of your own home under anything but “Guest”?

    Or apple can just be screwing us… Then refresh the iPhone and make millions more sales. And improve it in July 2012 so more can buy the improved model.

    And Rogers stores across Canada will get 2 phones per week and the frustrating mess of the iPhone 4 will be repeated all over again. Yay. I’m waiting for the iPhone 6 and quite possibly, they’ll do the same with 5 that they’re doing with 4 and offer a $50 upgrade before 6 comes out.
