A blog from Japan called Macotakara (which reminds me of Taco’s everytime) has now reported that they have learned from a source that is “reliable” that Apple will be shooting for a September or later in October release of the iPhone 5 this current year, which makes a continued shift away from the middle of the year releases that were seen in 2011 and this would be yielding a 12-month upgrade lifecycle for the iPhone 4S. It is also being claimed in this report that it is intended of Apple for timeframes later on to be a part of the long-term plans from Apple for future releases of iPhones.
According to Asian reliable source, next iPhone will be released in September or October , and this cycle seems to be kept for years.
It was similarly heard by MacRumors, of a representative from a supplier that is known to be providing parts for the iPhone that is where Apple has made plans for ordering that is shooting towards a release of newer hardware in this coming September.
It was also claimed by a third source named iMore just last week that Apple is picking an October release of the iPhone 5 that is LTE enabled, and that source is supposedly having already named March 7th accuralte as the release date of the newest iPad 3 tablet at the media event held by Apple. The iPad 3 has yet to be announced by Apple, though the release date has been well-confirmed as being accurate by a very well-connected man named Jim Dalrymple from The Loop.
The September and October claims for the release date of the iPhone 5 are contradicting numerous previous rumors directly from which it was claimed that Apple would be pushing out a new iPhone this summer, and it was assumed to be at the WWDC (WorldWide Developers Conference) in San Francisco. Though that event may actually be held during the week of June 11th-15th this current year, which means that a product release in a few weeks just after such an event would be quite a small lifecycle of a smartphone, especially an iPhone as it would only be eight months for the iPhone 4S itself. Though, apparently some had already believed that Apple would be holding off indeed for the iPhone 5 release just until about later in the year as it happened in 2011.
