Apple finally opens their mouths and spills the beans on the next generation iPhone, as the latest little rumour to hit the net on the subject is that the iPhone 5 could see an official announcement earlier that previously speculated and an inside source of the unnamed variety of course, has apparently stated that Apple is to hold a press conference on the 5th of October when they will announce the next iOS smartphone with the iPhone 5 hitting retail the week after. Apple uses the date to just unveil the new iPhone or to release it to the public and it has also been rumored that iOS 5 will be released on October 10th, which seems to fit well with the October 5th launch event……………….
Apple will be holding a media event on October 5th to announce brand new hardware and the news comes from PocketGamer, a website dedicated to covering mobile video games. The site cites an inside source at Apple who suggests that there will be a press conference held on 5th of October where the company will announce new hardware and this new piece of hardware would then be released a week later on October 12th. If you’ve been following the news lately, you’ll know that there are strong reports cropping up regularly regarding the next-generation iPhone or iPhones and multiple reports have suggested that Apple will introduce not one, but two new iPhones: a low-end iPhone 4 look-alike (which we’ll refer to as iPhone 4S) and a high-end next-generation iPhone (which we’ll refer to as the iPhone 5). There was one such previous report which suggested an Apple event being held at September 7th and that turned out to be a false alarm as no such event was held or even hinted at. From PocketGamer:
In the sort of hush-hush operation whereby we’d have to kill you etc etc, it seems that Apple is gearing up for a slightly earlier than previously expected iPhone 5 launch.
Our inside source says there will be a press conference announcing the new hardware on October 5th, with retail release occurring a week later.
The symbolism works well too: iPhone 5, iOS 5, October 5.
