iPhone 5 Release Set for June -
02-13-2012, 12:33 PM
The iPhone 5 release date theory came about as Digitimes posted a news story saying "Apple is expected to unveil its iPhone 5 smartphone at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) to be held in June 2012, the Chinese-language Commercial Times quoted Daiwa Securities as indicating." This is very much a story-of-a-story kind of thing, so it's largely unverifiable. That also means we can't prove it's false, so we'll have to wait. Summer is a fairly standard time to release a new iPhone, with the exception of the iPhone 4s release which was done in October of last year. Another iPhone5 release date could happen independent of that, as the iPhone 4s release in Cupertino did last year in October. It could mark a change from Apple away from industry events like CES as WWDC and into their own sponsoring of an event. In that case, Apple could announce the release of an iPhone 5 on their own schedule, independent of deadlines set by industry event schedules.
