iPhone 5 Announcement August with September Release: 2011
Hot new data is now in via Piper Jaffray and Apple Company Data mentioning a few details about the new iOS 5 announcements and the iPhone 5 being announced in August with a September (2011) release.
Apple Insider has some great information covering Gene Munster with Piper Jaffray on Friday reporting that the Apple iPhone 5 WILL go on sale in September. The exact days are as follows: At the WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) on June 6th the new iOS 5 will be announced, the iPhone 5 smartphone will be announced August 24th with it shipping September 13th.
According to Munster if we look at averages there is around 79 days between an iOS software event and the iPhone hardware announcement, plus around 99 days between the software event and the release/Shipping of the new Apple iPhone.
There is a lot to think about when it comes to the new iPhone 5 (4S), will it have a bigger screen? According to the source above it will have a 4-inch display even though this could come in 2012 but more than likely and fingers crossed could come in 2011.
Looking at the dates above is of course all speculation in our eyes, until we hear official announcements we will always have a balance of mixed feeling. Yesterday iPhone Rumors reported on the Foxconn explosion and fire leaving two dead and 16 injured, could this indeed stop production of iPad’s and iPhone’s, if this is the case then the iPhone 5 will not be releasing in September.
