The iPhone 5 will not debut in June at the WorldWide Developers Conference (WWDC) show, reports suggest.
This week Apple confirmed it is holding its time-honoured annual developers conference cum product showcase in June. For the last three years, the event has been marked by the launch of the new gen iPhone.
However, anyone holding out until then for the iPhone 5 is likely to be disappointed. According to Japanese blog Macotakara, the next Apple smartphone is highly unlikely to show until October at the earliest, meaning that it would not contribute to Apple’s financial year which ends in September.
Sources cited by the site have reportedly revealed that Apple has yet to start ordering parts for the phone, suggesting it won’t be anywhere near ready to go launch in just two months time.
Should the reports be correct, it would mean that the WWDC will be a software-only event notable only for the arrival of a new iteration of Apple’s iOS operating system.
