iPhone 5 landing autumn, says analyst

The sixth-gen (or fifth-gen proper) iPhone will be with us in autumn this year, an investment bank has predicted.

In a note to investors, Tavis McCourt of Morgan Keenan advised that the bank expects the handset in fall 2012 and, in news to surprise precisely no-one, forecasts it will be a “significant” growth driver for Apple.

The note states: "We expect iPhone revenues to represent 47.5 per cent of Apple's total revenues in [the December quarter], up from 38.8 per cent in the Sep. quarter, and up from 39.1 per cent in the year ago period.”

McCourt’s forecasts come amid a slew of rumours around the iPhone 5’s spec sheet, with speculation suggesting we could be in for a monster model with a whopping 128Mb of onboard memory and a radical teardrop-shaped design.

Other features mooted to be present and correct take in a larger four-inch screen (up from 3.5-inches) with higher resolution than the 4S’s super high-density retina display, plus a dual core processor that would bring Apple kits in line with top-end Android smarties.
