iPhone 5 release date: Al Gore talks about the release of “new iPhones” in October

It was enough to consider at least two models: a redesigned iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S based on the current iPhone 4 design.

While speaking at the Discovery Invest Leadership Summit in South Africa , Gore slipped what seems to an Apple secret.

“Not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month. That was a plug,” he said, fueling speculation that Apple might introduce more than one model in October.

Recent reports say that Apple management has banned employees from going on vacation between 9 and 12 October and between 14 and 15 October, confirming the hypothesis of the release of the iPhone 5 in the first half of October.
