Media event set for September 9, launch likely ~10 days later.
iPhone 5 Actually Launching in October, Not September?
So, when can we expect the company to uncrate the iPhone 5?There are no other details about the specs, and they suggest it could end up launching late in October.
“October,” the source said, while declining to offer a hard launch date. Other sources said it will be later in the month rather than earlier.
AllThingsD tends to be well connected with industry sources, so there is reason to believe their rumors. It still seems possible that Apple may pre-announce the iPhone 5 for some small period. Historically, Apple has held their fall media event in September.
