iPhone 5 to launch in September or October, new rumor claims

Apple’s next-gen smartphone might not benefit from a summer release, as previous reports speculated.

According to Japanese blog Macotakara, who cites a “reliable source,” the iPhone 5 is heading for release in September or October 2012.

“According to Asian reliable source, next iPhone will be released in September or October, and this cycle seems to be kept for years,” the report said.

In addition, MacRumors reports that it heard from a representative of a supplier known to provide parts for the iPhone that Apple is working on a launch of new hardware in September.

If Apple’s past iPhone launches usually took place in the summer, now it seems the Cupertino tech giant wants to change things and as the WWDC this summer is dedicated to OS X, a fall release date is highly probable.

However, this comes in contrast to recent reports claiming the next iPhone will be released in the summer.

The latest report from ibtimes.com speculated that the iPhone 4S’ gradual loss of popularity would eventually force Apple to plan an earlier launch for the iPhone 5.

Other rumors pointing to a summer launch appeared in late January, when an anonymous source at Apple’s China-based supplier Foxconn, cited by 9to5Mac, claimed that several samples of the future smartphone, each sporting a slightly different design, have entered production.

The insider also shared that the iPhone 5 could be launched during Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference set for this summer.

Earlier this month, Daiwa Securities, an Asian financial services firm, provided a screenshot of the leaked calendar from San Francisco’s Moscone Center, hinting that the event could take place between June 10 and June 15, thus narrowing down the dates of a possible iPhone 5 launch.

However, not long ago, reports surfaced stating that the iPhone 5 could be released on October 5, 2012, to commemorate Steve Jobs’ death. The late Apple CEO was closely involved with the iPhone 5 in the last days of his life and followed all the steps of the production.

In the meantime, March 7 is seen as a possible release date for the iPad 3.

According to Apple blog iMore’s Rene Ritchie, who cites “sources who have been reliable in the past,” Apple is planning its next launch event for March 7, which is likely to correspond to the announcement of a third-generation iPad.

The new iPad is expected to feature and a 2048×1536 Retina display (twice that of the iPad 2), a quad-core A6 processor and 4G LTE networking.
