iPhone 5 release date could be Oct. 5 2012 to commemorate Steve Jobs’ death

According to Apple Biter’s Blog at iPhone5Reviewed.com, Jobs was closely involved with the iPhone 5 in the last days of his life and followed all the steps of the production.

His involvement in the product should make it “cult classic” at the time of its release, probably in the summer of 2012.

“We find these rumors to be very valid, for the simple fact that Steve Jobs gave utmost importance to the design of Apple products,” the site writes.

Because of this, the blog speculates that the date of the launch for the iPhone 5could be pushed to October in commemoration of the death of Apple’s co-founder.
