Apple will Launch the iPhone 5 in October, Not September

You seriously thought Apple was going to launch the iPhone 5 in September? Hah!

According to yet another rumor about the iPhone 5, every rumor which said that the iPhone 5 will be launched in September is wrong. Apparently, “sources with knowledge of the situation” (the super-secret, anonymous kind) have claimed that the reports that the iPhone 5 will be launched in September are misinformed.

The sources also say that though AT&T is definitely blocking employee vacations for some launch event, it’s not going to be the iPhone 5 launch. According to them, the iPhone 5 will be launched only in October.

As the supposed launch date nears, the iPhone 5 rumor mill has gone into overdrive. There have been exactly 247 rumors about the iPhone 5 yet, with all of them claiming that it will be launched in September.

Normally I wouldn’t lend any credence at all to this new rumor. However, since this one has been published by AllThingsD, which has had a good track record so far, I’m really confused. It might turn out to be true after all.

Most rumors suggest that the iPhone 5 will come with an 8 MP camera and may sport a 4 inch display. It will also sport the new dual core A5 processor, like the iPad 2.
