iPhone 4S & iPhone 5: Both To Be Released In September?

The Internet has had a number of different rumors that have been circulating about the next iPhone which is fairly normal. We have heard that it will have a redesigned camera and we’ve heard that there are two different models coming along with a load of other things. The latest is that the iPhone 4S & iPhone 5 will both be released in September.

We’ve also heard that the iPhone 5 and the iPad 3 will be LTE enabled thanks to a LulzSec leak and now the latest rumors echo what we have already reported, the iPhone 5 should be here in September. There’s an entry over on iClarified where they are talking about both the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 saying that they will be released simultaneously along with the new iOS 5.0 update.

They have sourced an article over on CNN by Philip Elmer-DeWitt who talks about how an iPhone 5 release with the iOS 5.0 would make sense, especially as the new iOS has been released to developers. Strangely though we have only heard that there’s a new iPod Touch coming from the actual code, you would have thought that if it was going to be a September release then there would be some code for that specific device, unless it will be a last minute inclusion.

There’s quite an interesting quotation within the CNN article that mentions how Nokia and RIM are currently struggling in the smartphone market so it’s a good time for Apple to introduce a mid-range smartphone (i.e. $300-500 category), which will dramatically expand their physical market as well as their market share.

What do you guys think? Will we see the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 released simultaneously? Let us know in the comments section below.

    I don’t think there will be a simultaneous release. Apple is a company that has always brought out a product under a full spotlight..not a shared one!

    Well, Apple is clearly feeling the pressure from other companies using Android. Although, it wouldn’t make sense to drop the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 simultaneous since they got IOS 5 and iCloud coming out this fall.

    There might be a general disappointment, among the apple-fans who has been waiting a long time for the new handset, if they release the iPhone 4S. Especially since the rumors has been saying that there might be a “5th generation phone” coming up. And if there is something that Apple can’t afford is getting their fans disappointed!

    The release of the new handset needs to top the news about iOS 5 from a selling point of view - I don’t think that an iPhone 4S will do that - however, the iPhone 5 will be very popular!
