iPhone 5 on schedule for a June launch, report claims

Updated 4 years ago

Following rumors suggesting that Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 5 launch might be delayed until September, reports that Apple’s next-generation iPhone is on track for a release during the fourth week of June. Apple has traditionally released new versions of its popular smartphone in June or July, but recent rumors suggested the iPhone 5 might be delayed until September. The rumors were further supported by reports that Apple might focus solely on iOS 5 at WWDC this year and forgo a hardware announcement. “‘iPhone 5,’ the next model of iPhone 4, will be released on the coming 4th week of June,” reports. “In the midst of the iPhone 5 postponement rumors, Apple has confirmed that iPhone 5 will be released as planned and it will be released simultaneously in Korea through SK Telecom and KT.” Rumors suggest Apple still may focus solely on software at WWDC 2011 and instead announce the iPhone 5 at a special media event hosted by CEO Steve Jobs.
