Hush-hush insider chatter that the iPhone 5 will go on sale in less than three weeks’ time got that little bit more credible today, after yet another sign of Apple’s plans emerged online.
Screen shots of an inventory listing from a computer owned by a US vendor show it will be selling a third-party iPhone 5 screen protector from September 21st. Not at all coincidentally, that’s the date that weeks of Apple supply-chain chatter suggests will see the iPhone 5 hit retail.
News of the iPhone’s path to market comes after Apple last night sent out invitations to a press event on September 12th, which is expected to be marked by the handset’s official unveiling.
Although the flyers don’t mention the handset by name, the telltale number ‘5’ made by the shadows of the number 12 on the flyer are something of a dead giveaway.
Billed in some quarters as the biggest ever upgrade of an iPhone, the sixth-gen Apple smartphone is reputedly taller than earlier models and features a larger, four-inch screen and a beefier quad-core processor to bring up to speed with Android rivals in the heavy-lifting stakes.
