IPhone 5 pre-orders said to begin September 30th ahead of October 7th launch

Updated 4 years ago

Apple will begin taking pre-orders for its new iPhone 5 smartphone on September 30th, with a launch set to occur one week later on October 7th. Apple watcher 9to5 Mac claims to have confirmed the dates with multiple sources, though it does say Apple is currently deciding between two launch dates, October 7th and October 14th. The report also says Apple is mulling September 29th as the date pre-order availability will begin, though one source says the 30th is more likely. TiBp reported last week that Apple will launch its next-generation iPhone handset on October 7th, so this is the second time we’ve seen the date mentioned. TiBp also stated in the same report that Apple’s iPad 3 will not launch until next spring, as opposed to this fall or winter as had been previously reported.
