iPhone 5 battery problems could prompt September launch

More speculation on the next iPhone to keep all those iPhone 5 hungry iOS faithful at bay today, in the form of a rumour that one of Apple’s supplies could be experiencing problems supplying the battery for the upcoming new iOS smartphone, as the batteries are not up to Apple standards.

According to an article over on Apple Insider, Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White discovered an article on Chinese website Sina, from where these claims stem, and White shared a note to investors with Apple Insider, with the report claiming that just 30% of battery volumes currently hit Apple’s standards.

Apparently, the battery vendor, which remains unnamed, is currently working to solve the battery problem whilst development of the next iPhone, which is currently being called the iPhone 5 ramps up for an expected release later in the year.

Another rumour found by the same analyst that originates from ifeng.com, apparently suggest that the next iPhone could see release by Apple by the end of August; however, White still maintains he believes Apple will release the iPhone 5 sometime in September, saying that if there is a battery problem then they trust that Apple will sort out the issue in time for that September release.

Obviously last year Apple released the iPhone 4S mid-October, whilst industry watchers expect Apple will deliver the iPhone 5 roughly a year from the previous iOS smartphone, although other hope Apple will deliver the next iPhone earlier, but really when it boils right down to the nitty-gritty, end of August, sometime in September, or middle of October, the iPhone 5 will come when it comes, and anything to do with that release date is of course just speculation.

Would you prefer to see the iPhone 5 arrive at the end of August, or could you wait until September or mid-October to be able to grab the latest iOS smartphone?

    Hmmmm….. You’d think that with all of the Einstein’s that work for Apple would have anticipated making the battery more energy efficient seeing how 4g will be a battery drainer. Then again, Apple does have high standards for all of their products so maybe they want more battery power for the next revolutionary iPhone. Can’t wait.

      Seeing that apple already technically makes a “4G” phone on the AT&T network, you would think they would have the battery life downpat already. I doubt its the “4G” factor as much as it may be the larger processors and such.

    I was afraid to make a change.  I thought iOS was it.  My iPhone was not working and had to upgrade to another phone.  Samsung S3 had just been announced and was still apprehensive about the whole situation.  I did make the choice to go with the S3.  I am not going to be all over this phone saying how it is the best thing on earth.  I do like the way it is more like a computer that I am used to.  If I want to attach any kind of file, if I want to print… I am going to try this phone for a few years and see how it goes.  I would have purchased apple if it was out in June like always.  I hope that without Steve Jobs, Apple can keep up.  I think he was the mastermind behind the iphone and without him…well….I am not sure if apple can do it. I want apple to release iphones in June as always.  This ‘all over the place’ thing sucks!

    I think it should come out early sept we who havent bought the iphone 4s who still own the iphone 4 and had it since it first came out should come out sooner and for those who own the 4s no one told u to buy the 4s if u knew the iphone 5 was coming out in 2012 i didnt like the 4s that much so i thought i skip this one upgrade because i know i would regret it if the iphoone 5 came out so we who own the iphone 4 still we deserve an early release HOPING FOR SEPTEMBER!!!

    Since I have the iPhone 4s which I adore and the 5 is already
    Encountering problems. I think I will wait until the 5s is released
    Before I upgrade again. I need the perfected version.
