Rumours (and hopes) that Apple’s fifth-generation iPhone will land in September may have been sunk, amid reports that it could be pushed back another month.
Industry mavens at AllThingsD have been reportedly told by “a source familiar with Apple’s plans” that the hotly awaited successor to the iPhone 4 will now land in October and not next month as has been increasingly whispered lately.
The shadowy figure did not offer a concrete release date, but said it would land later in the month rather than sooner.
AllThingsD has enough industry clout for us to believe there must be some truth to this latest revelation. It’s quite possible that Apple may still announce the iPhone 5 in September, but that the actual launch will take place in October.
What new changes the handset will boast over its predecessor, which has sold in excess of 20 million units worldwide in just the last quarter, are unknown. However, rumours have it that the handset will almost certainly sport a larger, edge-to-edge screen, a better camera and possibly even get rid of the home button.
Stay tuned as we bring you more news on the iPhone 5 in the weeks to come.
