iPhone 5 Release Date Set for “Third or Fourth Week” of September [RUMOR]By: Josh Wolford - August 14, 2012
If we believe the rumored time frame, eager Apple fans will be able to get their hands on the new iPhone on September 21st.
And a new report from BGR seems to corroborate that date range. According to a “trusted source” inside AT&T, the iPhone 5 (new iPhone?) will launch during the third or fourth week of September. And AT&T is planning on a rush, as they are also instituting an all hands on deck policy that will last into October. Not only that, but apparently a large training event has been postponed to early October because of a “huge announcement.”
Current rumors put the release on September 21st, and the official press event to unveil the new device on September 12th. Yesterday, we heard that pre-orders for the next-gen iPhone will also kick off on September 12th. That means that Apple is changing it up a bit from last year. The pre-order period for the iPhone 4S didn’t start until a few days after the debut of the device.
Of course, these are all still rumors at this point – but we have heard a fair amount of sources put the release in late September.
If all of the spec rumors turn out to be correct, this is likely what your new iPhone will look like:
