iPhone 5 September launch rumored, again

by on21 July 2011

Product transition will impact quarter
So we have been hearing now for a while that Apple has settled on September for the release of the iPhone 5. The strongest hint yet has been provided in Appleā€™s earnings report. During the earnings call last might, CFO Peter Oppenheimer said that a future product transition would impact the September quarter.

Sources who manufacture the parts that Apple uses to build iPhones have also hinted at a September announcement, but as is its policy, Apple will not discuss future product announcements ahead of time.

In addition to the iPhone 5, hints at a lower cost iPhone continue to fill our inbox. The current belief seems to be that Apple will offer a low-cost, entry-level iPhone that likely is nothing more than a revised iPhone 3GS. We have already seen evidence of this with sales of the 3GS at very low prices with a two-year contract by some carriers.

In addition to the iPhone 5, in the U.S. market it is now believed that both T-Mobile and Sprint will both be starting to sell iPhones at some point after the iPhone 5 announcement. No idea when this will be officially announced, but it seems that a good many of you believe that it is going to happen.
