  • China Times: iPhone 5 Launching Second Week of September


    Regardless of whether the information coming from the rumor mill is correct, one thing is always certain - the rumors fly most furiously in the immediate weeks and days before an Apple product launch. That said, given the flurry of iPhone 5 news and rumors we've heard in just the last 72 hours, it's obvious that the next generation iPhone isn't too far from our reach.

    Late Wednesday, a report from the Chinese-based publication China Times indicated that Apple's internal plans for the iPhone 5 launch place the device on a path for release somewhere between September 6th and September 15th - roughly the second week of the month. As you are well aware, speculation about a mid-September iPhone 5 unveiling has persisted for months.

    According to information presented in the report out of China, Apple will only have four million units in its first order to accommodate early adopters - a situation that could create an iPhone 5 supply crunch ahead of the holiday shopping season. Similarly, "component issues" have slowed progress on plans for the 3rd generation iPad, which no longer appears poised for a late 2011 release.

    When you take into consideration the recent information leaks at AT&T, suspicious Apple hiring plans for late summer, purported iPhone 5 cases turning up online, and now the latest Apple news out of China, it's pretty clear that our long wait for the 5th generation iPhone is almost over.

      We definitely won't get a 5mp front camera. It's not even 1mp in the iPhone 4. To make it 5mp would make FaceTime run like crap, which Apple would never go for.

      Why would any company ever release an upgrade to a product.... without actually updating it..........

      Of course the next generation iPhone will be superior to the current iPhone, that is just common sense.

      I am guessing that statement was comparing the 3GS to the 3G. Looked the same and aside from a bit of a speed boost (noticable, but not noteworthy IMO), there wasn't much to brag about.

      This could be the greatest phone ever....or a big letdown. Save your excitement for when you actually know something about this phone besides a potential release date.
      Does it hurt to be optimistic? Duh the phone can be a huge let down or a great phone, only time will tell. In that time we'll do what we always do...Speculate

      I really hope it looks like the pic here. I personally miss the rounded back. It makes sense to look like that. It matches the iPad and MacBook Pro look. Even the iMac.

      I've got 2 lines upgrade eligible since May. Thought maybe I'd hit June launch. Not so much. Come on release! At least show it to us Apple! I'm sick and tired of your Mission Impossible crap!
      Same here! This phone got a lot of features, refuse my self paying for the same look!, did it back with 3G/3Gs refuse my self to do it again! Unless the company that I work for pays for it, then it's a different story, ha!
