iPhone 5: imminent release corroborated by iPhone 4S recycling offer

Rumours that the release of the sixth-gen iPhone is imminent got a fresh veneer of respectability today, with the news that Apple has added the current-gen model to its recycling programme.

The iPhone 4S's inclusion in Apple’s Reuse and Recycle scheme means that customers can now trade in their handset against a new Apple product from the company’s site.

More important than the £300 that iPhone 4S-owning punters get to spend on iKit, however, is that the move is a clear signal that the arrival of the so-called iPhone 5 is looming.

Apple and its recycling programme partners traditionally only add products to the scheme when a new generation device is about to replace them.

Rumblings about the Cupertino-based giant’s plans come amid widespread speculation that the iPhone 5 could be launched as early as September 21st.

The purportedly redesigned handset is expected to improve on its predecessor with the inclusion of a quad-core processor, a larger, four-inch screen and Near Field Communications (NFC) chips for contactless payments.
