  • Tim Cook Leaning Toward iPhone 5 Unveiling at June's WWDC?


    For much of early 2011, speculation swirled that the next-gen iPhone - which would eventually debut as the iPhone 4S - could be unveiled at Apple's World Wide Developer's Conference in June. As we quickly realized, however, Apple made WWDC all about iOS 5 and the world didn't see any new hardware until October.

    Once again, a familiar scenario is taking shape. According to the insight from Chinese-language newspaper Commercial Times, Tim Cook and company reportedly want to resurrect the summertime release tradition of new iPhones. A source at Daiwa Securities confirms the speculation and says current plans call for Apple to introduce the iPhone 5 at the Worldwide Developers Conference this June.

    Since the start of 2012, numerous credible sources inside Foxconn and elsewhere in the supply chain have indicated that prototypes of the iPhone 5 already exist inside the factory. A report from CBS News Friday reiterates the longstanding claims we've heard about the next iPhone, specifically that it will include a larger display, glass-to-glass touch panel technology, and a symmetrical design.

    Perhaps the only valuable takeaway from this and other similar reports in recent weeks is that Apple may not be wrestling with last-minute design issues that were said to be rampant before the iPhone 4S was unveiled. From Gene Munster to the sources inside Foxconn, everyone seems to be in agreement that the iPhone 5 is going to be significantly redesigned from previous models and that Apple is almost ready to begin mass production.

      Even if they want to resurrect the summer time release they certainly won't be doing so from WWDC. They'll hold that sucker in house like all their other big announcements going forward.

      This is about as reliable as the Bloomberg report about iPad 3 coming in February. It's really getting boring hearing about these speculative rumors. Do you really think Tim Cook called some sh1thead in China and said "Hey, I'm leaning towards releasing iPhone 5 at WWdC"

      I speculate that the iPhone 5 will be circular shaped like a disc and can be mounted on your chest to unveil a body armor suit that lets you fly and kill your enemies.

      I won't believe anything anyone says about speculation or any rumors besides Apple themselves. Sorry MMi but you should just stick to real factual news, I'd rather not know anything about it than to be lied to.

      I honestly don't care when they release it as long as its not a disappoint like the 4S. I was really looking forward to it but was bummed when the design was the same as my i4. Only thing I liked was that they finally made a 64GB cause 32GB just ain't doing it any more for me!! So I hope the newer Model set to be released later this year can surpass its predecessors cause I have 3 updates under my phones account just waiting to be used (>,<)

      Turn in your Cupertino key card Pepsolman. We told you to keep that under wraps.

      Seriously they need to hurry. I can't take my dirt slow 3G any more.
