Another iParts supplier has added weight to reports that iPhone 5 won’t drop until last in the third quarter, as speculation over Apple’s plans continues to run rife.
Latterly, the tech press has been chockfull of folks from Apple’s component supply chain claiming that rather than the expected June release for the next-gen iPhone, the handset won’t land until September at the earliest and could even be delayed until next year.
Today, the rumours got a dose of fresh momentum after Gene Munster of number crunchers and market watchers Piper Jaffray claimed two separate sources have told him that Apple has ordered parts “several months later than usual” this year.
However, Munster forecasts that we won’t have to wait until quite as some of the other rumour mongers have suggested and posits that the phone will arrive in August – a delay of just two months or so.
In a development that’ll surprise precisely no Cupertino-watchers, Apple has yet to even acknowledge the speculation.
