Apple’s sixth generation iPhone could be officially unveiled on the week of September 9th.
According to Huffington Post’s weekly rumour watch, “an iPhone event is happening the week of September 9” where “Apple is going to introduce a new iPhone” adding that “it’s likely the new phone will be out the following week”.
Previously it has been rumoured the Cupertino-based giant will lift the lid on the iPhone 5 on September 12th, with September 21st pinned as the due date for when it will finally hit shop shelves.
While we hate to be cynics, we’re not entirely convinced about it being announced on September 12th, mainly because it’s not a Tuesday, which is traditionally the day Apple chooses to debut a new iPhone.
Logic dictates Apple would wait a full year before announcing a successor to the iPhone 4S, which landed in October. However, the general consensus appears to be that a September release date is nigh on certain. It may be that Apple wants its last quarter figures to be as strong as possible.
Details on the iPhone 5 are still scant, but if you trust rumours much, it’s said be taller and slimmer than its predecessor and features a larger, four-inch display, an improved camera, a quad core processor and possibly NFC and 4G capabilities.
