iPhone 5 pre-orders to begin on September 14th

The sixth-generation Apple iPhone will be available to pre-order two days after it is officially announced, fresh insider tip suggests.

Citing unnamed sources abreast of matters, Geeky Gadgets reports that pre-sale of the handset will begin this Friday the 14th, exactly a week before its mooted release date on September 21st, also confirmed by a ‘someone close to a major UK mobile carrier’.

The rumour mill has gone on overdrive as the tech world braces for inarguably the year’s most anticipated smartphone announcement, due to happen this Wednesday in San Francisco.

Rumoured to be taller and slimmer than past iterations, features the iPhone 5 is expected to bring include a more capacious, four-inch display, 4G LTE support, a beefier processor and a redesigned dock connector.

Pricing is likely to be the same as the iPhone 4S when it dropped last October, starting at £499 for the 16GB model and £100 more for each additional storage option. Fret not - contract prices to bring that outlay down considerably will be revealed shortly after the announcement. Stay sharp.
