For nearly two years speculations have been made about the release date for the iPhone 5. This will be Apple’s 6th generation of the iPhone smartphone. After the death of Steve Jobs, many Apple fan were disappointed to see the 4s appear, rather than the anticipated 5. The 5 has a lot of hype leading up to it and we will see how it compares to the newly released Android phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 or the HTC One X.
The rumors have been confirmed earlier today that Apple will host a special event sometime in September releasing the Apple iPhone 5 to the public. Expect finding one to be difficult as they will likely sell out quickly. Luckily, other cellphone carriers are expected to join with Apple and sell the phone on their line. AT&T will be keeping their stores full of employees through September and October 2012 to help with all the new sales.
The LA Times released an article titled “iPhone 5 launch in September has been confirmed by a ‘trusted AT&T source,’” and says that AT&T “plans to launch the sixth-generation iPhone in the third or fourth week of September.” We can only hope that these sources can be trusted and that this is not another rumor.
The Apple event is scheduled for September 12th and the official launch date will be September 21st. The pricing structure will most likely model the 4th and 5th generation pricing structures.
Will you stick will the iPhone craze or make the change to Google’s Android platform?
