Rumours surrounding the iPhone 5 release date gained added weight today, amid confirmation from a German network that it’s expecting a launch in September.
Germany’s Mobilcom Debitel has begun circulating its August newsletter to customers, which states the next-generation iPhone will finally land in September, an ETA that’s long been the mainstay of the iPhone 5 rumour-mill.
‘In September, it’s finally time for a new generation of smartphone to go on sale,’ the email reveals.
Previously it’s been rumoured that Apple will officially unveil the iPhone 5 on September 12th with a release date pinned on September 21st. However, there’s chatter that it might launch Stateside first before making a global debut in the first week of October.
Features and improvements the eagerly awaited handset is expected to bring include a taller, slimmer design, a larger, four-inch display, a quad-core processor and potentially 4G and NFC support.
It might also introduce a new, 'mini' dock connector that will replace the current 30-pin port on all future iOS devices.
