Apple had traditionally launched a new smartphone each year in June or July, however this trend ended with the October launch of the iPhone 4S. Citing an unnamed source, Japanese website Macotakara reported on Monday that Apple’s next-generation iPhone will again be launched in the fall this year. The device will be released in either September or October according to the report, and Apple’s future smartphone launches will remain on a fall cycle in coming years. The report reaffirms an exclusive BGR report from last year, which stated that Apple will launch a new iPhone with a revamped antenna system and a unibody aluminum design this fall.
