Sharp corroborates rumours iPhone 5 production starts this month

One of Apple’s main display manufacturers has added weight to rumours that the iPhone 5 will drop in September or October, as the clock continues to tick on the device billed as Steve Jobs’ parting gift to the tech world.

Addressing delegates in Tokyo, Head honcho at Sharp Takashi Okuda disclosed that “shipments [of screens for the iPhone 5] will start in August”, meaning that all signs increasingly point to the iPhone 5 dropping in late September or October, possibly, but let's face it most likely not, alongside the now-mythical iPad Mini.

Billed as the last-ever device overseen by notorious perfectionist Steve Jobs, the next-gen Apple handset will purportedly showcase a taller form factor and a larger four-inch screen. The phone is also expected to feature Near Field Communications technology to allow users to pay for goods by swiping their phone over a reader and 4G network support.
