In what is definitely the most legitimate source to join this list of those predicting a later-than-usual iPhone 5, Reuters reports of a September 2011 iPhone 5.
Reuters reports that the much anticipated won’t be released in June 2011 as previous iPhones have around this time every year; news that will definitely disappoint those holding on to hopes that previous reports were nothing but mere speculation.
According to the report, the iPhone 5 will begin production sometime in July and will be ready for a September 2011 release that is likely to coincide with the annual fall media event Apple is known to hold; a seemingly perfect fit for the announcement of the iPhone 5.
The Reuters report also confirms that rumours around the iPhone 5 featuring the iPad 2′s dual-core A5 processor are true and that it is also likely to include 64GB of storage capacity (much like the white iPhone 4), a slightly larger screen, and an aluminum back as well.
The report goes on to suggest that the iPhone 5 will remain structurally the same as the iPhone 4, but will have totally revamped internal components.
A better idea of what we can expect the iPhone 5 to be like will be after Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference, where they’ve publicly stated to unveil the new iOS 5 that the iPhone 5 will sport when released.
Report: Reuters Confirms Rumours Of A September 2011 iPhone 5
There are mixed feelings out there about Apple’s decision to break the trend of releasing iPhones in the summer, but it might be a better deal for eventual owners of it, as it gives Apple even more time to fine-tune the iPhone 5 to perfection and avoid the re-occurrence of problems its experienced in the past.
The later-than-usual release of the iPhone 5 might also throw Apple’s biggest competitors off-guard as they could’ve been expecting Apple to keep with previous trends and release the iPhone 5 this summer, but we’ll have to wait quite a while to see if that has any positive/negative effects on them.
So let us know what you think. Is it relieving that Apple is making sure that they don’t release an ‘unperfected’ iPhone 5, or are you furious that you’ll have to wait a couple more months to get your hands on one?
