Consumers are waiting eagerly for the release of Apple’s next generation iPhone – iPhone 5. The anticipation for the iPhone 5 among fans have led to drop in sales. Analysts say, this might force Apple to release iPhone 5 earlier than planned. According to a report published by iMore on July 30, Apple’s next iPhone is set to be unveiled at a special event on September 12, 2012. iMore also mentioned that the device will hit the stores on September 21, just 9 days after the official introduction.
Yesterday, we saw the purported images of assembled iPhone 5. Does it indicate, Apple iPhone 5 is about to knock at the door soon? Well, the probability is 50-50. But the recent report from iMore has heated up the speculation further.
The Apple specialized blog, iMore, has claimed that, Apple is planning to debut iPhone 5 and 7.85 inch iPad mini at a special event on September 12, 2012. The blog also mentioned that, iPhone 5 will be released on September 21, just after 9 days of its official debut. However, iMore couldn’t say for sure, iPad mini will be released. It expects, iPad mini could be released on September 21, same as iPhone 5. iMore also speculated that the new iPod nano may also debut on September 12. Unfortunately, they haven’t got any specific information about the releasing date of new iPod nano either.
If we look back into the past we’ll see, last year Apple introduced their iPhone 4S on Tuesday, October 4, 2011, and released it 10 days later on October 14. On the other side, this year Apple announced their iPad 3 on Wednesday, March 7, 2012, and released it 9 days later on March 16.
Though, the information is not definitive, speculators will continue heat up the debate.
