iPhone 5 will launch on September 21, 2012… according to a rumor


Another day hour, another iPhone 5 [2] rumor [3]. This time the rumor is about the release date of the sixth iteration of Apple’s world famous iPhone.

According to a French blog App4phone.fr, the much-awaited iPhone 5 will be released on September 21, 2012. App4phone.fr is getting its information from the third largest accessory manufacturer in China whom Apple has reportedly given a few details about the iPhone 5 including the just-mentioned release date.

Of course without an official release date by Apple [4], this rumor is exactly that — a rumor. But, it should be mentioned, last year iPhone 4S was released on October 14 so an iPhone on September 21 this year wouldn’t be too much of a stretch. However, as Cult of Mac points out, Apple tends to announce products ten days before release which would mean an announcement this year would land on September 11, a date Apple is unlikely to pick for a major iPhone announcement.

Whenever Apple outs the iP5, it better do it quick before Samsung eats Apple’s lunch [5]. Do you agree? Will you be grabbing an iPhone 5? Share with us in the comments [6] below!
