Apart from the unlikely rumor run by BGR yesterday, the most consistent has been that the next iPhone is due for a September launch – most likely towards the end of the month. According to DigiTimes, a site known for having contacts within the manufacturing industry, the iPhone 5 will be shipping next month.
Pegatron, one of Apple’s production partners in China is said to be preparing a shipment of 10 million iPhone 5 handsets. These devices will be shipped from tAccording to the report, this figure has dropped from 15 million. However, that estimate could be way off, as could the 10 million rumor. Either way things are moving towards a launch in the next 8-9 weeks. Let’s hope Jobs&Co start sending out invites to an event soon.
