Probably the most ubiquitous target release date of them all is around the month of September. Now we get yet another rumor that claims that the much antipated follow-up to the iPhone 4 is in fact going to be launched in September.
This is according to a report from BoyGeniusReport that they have a solid and reliable source who's working for AT&T that claims that the wireless carrier is already gearing up in preparation for the launch of Apple's iPhone 5. The iPhone carrier is said to rounding up their employees, including those that are working at the AT&T stores and informing them that they should complete their employee training at the soonest time. This is said to enable the employees to prepare themselves for a great wave of consumers that are said to demand for Apple's next iPhone, the iPhone 5.
According to BGR:
BGR has exclusively learned that AT&T has begun communicating launch plans internally for Apple’s next-generation iPhone 5 handset. We have been told that AT&T has begun informing employees across the company, and those who work in retail locations, to finish any sort of employee training as soon as possible. AT&T is asking managers to finish training in order to have employees available for the influx of foot traffic expected in September, a proven source has shared with us.
As you all know, we have been getting quite an influx of rumors and news regarding Apple's next iPhone even before the company manages to have an official statement about it. There have been several rumors that points to a September launch date. And with this new claim from a said "reliable" source, we are quite inclined to believe that the iPhone 5 will be launched this September, or at least it is possible the it will be at least announced by that time.
As for the specs and design of the iPhone 5 itself, the rumors and speculations are even much crazier. There have been claims that the iPhone 5 will have minimal hardware upgrade and that it will sport the same form factor as the iPhone 4. Another rumor indicates that the iPhone 5 will have a radical new design with a considerable hardware upgrade. And lastly, there have been reports that Apple will actually release two iPhones this year. One is a cheaper iPhone that will cater to those who have less budgets and the other one will be the direct successor to the iPhone 4.
