  • Report Says First Week of September Marks Start of iPhone 5 Production


    Production is about to commence on the 5th generation iPhone, says a new report from an Apple-related news site in Asia (Macotakara.jp). If the report is accurate, the iPhone 5 - or iPhone 4S, perhaps - will begin rolling off the assembly lines in about three weeks.

    For most of the year, we've been hearing that early fall would bring with it the long-awaited release of the next-gen handset, a reality that eluded us this summer during Apple's traditional June iPhone roll-out period. But the latest news out of Asia at least endeavors to confirm that further delays are not on tap.

    What's more, Japanese website Kodawarisan cites sources close to Apple who reveal that the big iPhone 5 reveal will take place at an Apple event on September 8th (but given that the date was presented in Japanese time, the actual date in the US would be September 7th).

    This afternoon, I looked into the calendar at San Francisco's Moscone Center West, and Apple doesn't appear to have yet secured that date (9/7/11). Of course, supposed "clues" about Apple events based on that calendar's bookings and available dates have led us astray before. So just because we can't yet confirm a booking for Apple at its favorite venue on the aforementioned date doesn't mean that the iPhone 5 won't be unveiled at that location at that time.

    UPDATE:

    Within hours of the rumor mill cranking out the above September 7th report, Jim Dalrymple of The Loop says he's been informed by Apple sources that the company will NOT release the iPhone 5 on that date.

      So you post a fake video then ask here for people to view it?
      Why?

      Well maybe if apple gave us the best new devices, they would not have to drag every company who they feel is a threat to court. Samsung, htc & so on.

      Instead, apple simply gives us little upgrades at a time to keep us happy. There are faster phones out there with 4G, bigger screens, 3D & more.

      It's been over a year and no new phone from apple, that's just crazy. Apple has had a long time to come out with an awesome phone, NOT just an "upgraded" faster phone.

      Upgrade is next year. So I will be ready for the iPhone 5th gen, 5gs, or the 6th. Lol. I'm more stoked about iOS5

      To respond to the "Update" in the OP... I don't think anyone thinks the iPhone was to be released on Sept 7th.... just announced at a press event. If production is to start the first week of Sept it would make sense to have an Oct ship date.

      I don't think it will be released on that day, all i know is what my buddy told me and he said that the release is in september. It's kind of a sit and wait deal, although im pretty sure that it will be available in september. It's an educated guess based on trust so im going to stick to my guns.
      Your post makes very good sense though.

      Agreed, regardless if IOS5 is a "catchup"(according to some) it's something that's native and if anyone's played with the beta they know how smooth it is. People that are fine with the iphone 4 with no JB will definitely be blown away with IOS5.

      True that even I'm blown away some with them opening features in IOS5 and widgets and I've been jailbroken on every iPhone and I'm on iPhone4 now the thing I like the most is the ability to change sounds and vibrations for notifications, mail, text messages,.... Better yet any text tone in one click without the need for winterboard
