Next Apple iPhone 5 (or 4S) September Release: Looking Likely

We’ve continued to bring readers all the news and speculation about the next Apple iPhone, despite expected release dates seemingly changing by the minute and confusion over whether it will be the Apple iPhone 4S or 5. The latest information we have is that it appears as though a release for the next iPhone is looking likely for September.

If you’re an iPhone enthusiast following the news and rumors about the next-generation iPhone, you’ll know just how many new stories crop up about this iconic device. Earlier in the week we put together a recent rumor roundup for the iPhone 4S or 5 so check that out if you want all the latest. OSM’s Tim Ollason also told recently how iOS 5.0 is expected to be showcased at WWDC beginning on June 6 and wondered if it would be demonstrated on the iPhone 4S. Although Apple has said the iPhone 5 will not be making an appearance there has been no mention of the 4S that has been much speculated. Tim also recently told how the latest rumors that many tech sites have reported on, seem to indicate an iPhone 4S due around June or July with an iPhone 5 next year although of course nothing is yet confirmed.

News today though indicates that the next iPhone, whether it is the 4S or 5, will be released in September following a note to investors by analyst Brian White of Ticonderoga Securities. White raised predictions for shipments of the iPhone 4 in the June quarter and said that the usual lull in demand for the iPhone for the quarter does not seem to be occurring, according to Zach Esptein over on BGR. This could be due to the release of the White iPhone 4 in March that many had been waiting for, as well as the news that the next iPhone would not be released as early as usual, around June.

As well as this White points to data suggesting the next iPhone components will begin production in July with volume being stepped up in August, leading to a September release. Over on Apple Insider Neil Hughes also reports on this latest news so check it out at the link for his take.

As always of course, when it comes to Apple we will be kept on the edge of our seats but it would be nice to think that we might be given some indication of a release timeframe for the next iPhone at WWDC next week. We shall wait and see and let you know when we hear more. Are you waiting for the next iPhone? Let us know what you think of this latest news/speculation by sending us your comments.
