iPhone 5 Rumor: Release Date Not In September After All?

    August 12, 2011

Earlier we wrote about a rumor that was making the rounds on the Internet that Apple would beholding a media event on September 7th. The initial thought was Apple would use this venue to launch the uber-hyped iPhone 5.

It now appears that the September media event isn’t happening, as sources have flatly denied to Jim Dalrymple of The Loop:

Reports began to surface yesterday that Apple would hold a special event on September 7 to launch the new iPhone, but that’s not happening.

According to my sources, Apple will not have an event or launch the next iPhone on September 7. It’s hard to say how that specific date was chosen by the sites that started the rumor, other than it fits into the timeline of previous Apple events.

At this point it’s unclear when Apple will hold their next media event. It could still be in September, as it just appears that Dalrymple has only squashed the rumore of the event being on the 7th. So, realistically the iPhone 5 could still be announced sometime in September, we’ll just have to wait and see. It’ll also be interesting to see when Apple finally does announce the iPhone 5 if it includes rumored built-in projector.

It should be noted that Dalrymple is pretty well known conduit for insider Apple information. He’s even been referred to as an “unofficial outlet for debunking rumor claims”.
