We’re hearing more reports regarding the release date of the next-generation iPhone and, if you’ve been following us lately, you’ll rightly guess that the report suggests a date in September.


The report comes from China Times which specifies the iPhone 5 launch to the second week of September.

From China Times:

The report also claims that the next iPad – rumored to pack a 2048×1536 Retina Display – has been delayed till Thanksgiving.

A few days ago, a senior executive at Swisscom was heard saying that the iPhone 5 would launch in US on September 5th and on October 5th, at least in Switzerland. This date was reaffirmed by AT&T’s reported preparations for the iPhone 5 launch.


The iPhone 5 is expected to have a thinner, curved, tapered design which would fall in line with the design of the iPad 2 and the iPod touch 4G.

The iPhone 5 will have a dual-core A5 processor; other anticipated features include a doubling of RAM, a higher megapixel camera, longer battery life and, according to recent rumors, a larger edge-to-edge Retina Display.
