Next iPhone to launch in early September, according to report

Apple will likely launch its sixth-generation iPhone in early September according to a new report from a well-connected insider. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo on Monday told clients that Apple will likely launch its “iPhone 5” smartphone in early September following the release of the Gold Master version of its iOS 6 software, which will debut on Monday during Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference keynote at 1:00 p.m. Eastern, 10:00 a.m. Pacific. “Based on the release schedule for iOS 6 GM, there is a very good chance iPhone 5 will start shipping also in early September,” Ming-Chi wrote in a note to investors on Monday. The analyst, who has a solid track record of reporting accurate information regarding unannounced Apple products, said last week that Apple’s next-generation iPhone will feature a new 4.08-inch display that utilizes in-cell touchscreen technology.
