iPhone 5 Rumor: Release Date Second Half Of 2012
[ Technology]

Although the iPhone 4S is still making its way to certain markets and is barely out of the box for most people, the demand for information on the next iPhone is still high. Sure, people are always anxious to learn about the newest Apple products, but the iPhone 5 will probably have an unprecedented amount of buzz surrounding it up until release – for the simple fact that many people felt tricked when Apple announced the 4S as opposed to the 5.

Thoughts on the 4S aside, DigiTimes has some information regarding the next gen iPhone. According to “sources in the upstream supply chain,” the iPhone 5 is unlikely to be revealed until “the second half of 2012.”

Of course, DigiTimes has been hit or miss with its Apple insider information as of late, and this is a pretty non-specific claim – so it doesn’t hurt to be skeptical regarding this claim.

But hey, that’s why a rumor is a rumor, right?

Apparently, the iPhone 5 will be that massive redesign that everyone is demanding, as DigiTimes’ sources say that Apple is planning an “overhaul” of all its product lines for 2012.

This would mean the iPad, iMac, MacBook, as well as the iPhone would be seeing significant changes.

Will it be the thinner, wider model with the larger screen that people expected for the October release of the 4S? It looks like there is plenty of time for speculation.

    FFS, this isn’t news matey. Anyone who’s had a pulse for the last 4 years would be able to tell you this bit of information. Are ou on a quota for writing articles and had a mental block?

    Please don’t give up your day job.

      OK, “matey,” this means you already knew the iPhone 5 was scheduled for next year? Sorry it took so long for the rest of us to catch up to your fountain of unending knowledge. What’re the lottery numbers for this weekend? What’s that? Oh, you mean you can’t see the future after all? Well, then, what good are you?

        Wait…Apple is going to release a phone next year?!?! Like they’ve been doing for the past…four years?!?! No way! That definitely took a lot of “unending knowledge” for me to figure that one out.

        Using logic and trends is a little different than predicting lottery numbers, Chris. So don’t get your panties in a bunch at Skeptic calling this article what it is – worthless.

          So when does the iPhone 6 come out then?

          • alex

            Fall of 2013.

  • Steve

    Really? Based on the fact that they release a new iPhone every year during the second half of the year you managed to extrapolate the next iPhone’s release date as being in the second half of 2012?

    Wow, aren’t you smart?

    Apple did not produce any rumors, only by using the secrecy. The blogs create the rumors. It wasn’t a big deal to predict 4s due to the 3gs in the past…
