iPhone 5 release date on September 21st rumors surface again

Last week an unnamed Chinese accessory maker has allegedly been told by Apple to get ready for a September 21 launch.

Now PhoneArena reiterates the rumor, basing its claims on a source who works in the retail industry in the United States.

The insider wouldn’t have taken this rumored release date seriously unless for the previous reports advancing the same information.

Rumors of an iPhone 5 launch have so far suggested a September or October release date.

As for specs, the handset is expected to come with improved Siri, Facebook integration, Apple’s own Maps app with turn-by-turn navigation and 3D renderings of cities, NFC integration and more.
