iPhone 5 or 4S Release Confusion: Now June/July Says Analysis
Does the speculation over when the iPhone 5 will see the light of day ever stop? Earlier we posted an article which claims the next generation iPhone is delayed until October, and now we have a claim that according to certain analysis that the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S whichever it turns out to be will release in June/July rather than September.
According to an article over on Online Social Media, by way of iClarified, Andy Zack of Seeking Alpha claims that analysis of Apple’s quarterly guidance apparently reveals, “ Apple will release the next iPhone in June/July rather than in September.”
Apparently during the Q2 conference call Peter Oppenheimer, Apple CFO said, “We expect OpEx [operating expenses] to be about $2.5 billion, including about $255 million related to stock-based compensation expense.”
However according to Zack “Oppenheimer might as well have said, “Despite what you might hear on Wall Street, we expect the iPhone 5 to be released in late June or early July as planned.”
Why Oppenheimer’s statement translates into a ”late June or early July” release for the iPhone 5 escapes me, but one thing is for sure, the iPhone 5/4S will release only when Apple confirms it will release, and all else is simply speculation, but it does get somewhat confusing at times don’t you agree?
