Apple Launch iPhone 5 on September 21st, 2012

The next iPhone model is expected to become official on September 21st, just in time for a commercial availability starting with the fourth quarter of the year.

Apple has already confirmed that the next iOS version would arrive this fall, but it did not offer specific info on new devices that would be launched running under it. Many of the rumors on the matter suggested that the company might be set to launch the new device in September, without a specific date set as of yet. However, it appears that Apple has actually got all things down on paper, and that the new iPhone will be unveiled to the world on September 21st. The info comes from App4phone.fr, which cites a large accessory maker from China, also said to be one of the third leading accessory makers in Hong Kong. The September 21st launch includes the unveiling of the iPhone 5 only for a handful of countries around the world, it seems. United States, France, UK and China will be among the markets to receive the device first.

On the other hand, if Apple gets this launch in line with the release of iPhone 4S, we should see the device available in a wide range of countries starting with mid-October, with even more of them set to receive it before the end of the year. What remains to be seen is whether September 21st is indeed the availability date of the device, which would suggest a September 11th announcement, or the unveiling date, which means that October 1st will see the new handset on shelves. iPhone 5 should hit the market with the new iOS 6 platform on board, a larger display, thinner body, and a variety of outer design modifications when compared to the currently available models. Thus, users might see it packing a smaller 19-pin dock connector, along with the headphone jack moved to the bottom end, a center front camera for video calls, thinner display, and support for nano-SIM cards. None of these has been confirmed for the time being, but only few changes are expected to emerge in the final product. Stay tuned for more on this.
