Rumours have been circulating all over the Internet suggesting that Apple’s sixth generation iPhone will launch in September 2012. These rumours have turned into a sort of confirmation if sources close to Reuters and AllThingsD can be believed.
Sources close to AllThingsD have reportedly confirmed that the event is scheduled sometime in the week of starting from the 9th of September, which makes the 12th of September a plausible date for the event. Reuters too has confirmation from its sources about the September event.
Apple on the other hand has declined to comment on the situation but all rumours will be put to rest once the Apple Invite finds its way to inboxes.
Recently, purported images of the iPhone 5 were leaked by a Japanese repair shop site, iLab Factory.
Whether the rumours are true or not, one thing is certain. Apple is planning something big for this holiday season. Not only is the new iPhone doing its rounds in the rumour circles, but the new iPod Touch and new iMac’s along with a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display too are make an appearance in the online rumour mills. Another device that is rumoured to make an appearance at Apple’s September event is the iPad mini. We however are doubtful whether this device exists seeing that every time a 7-inch tablet is launched, rumours of the iPad mini start to surface. We have seen this trend with the launch of the Kindle Fire as well as with the launch of the Google Nexus 7.
To steal some of Apple’s thunder, it is expected that Samsung will launch its 64GB Galaxy S III smartphone around the same time that Apple announces the iPhone 5. Apple and Samsung have locked themselves in a legal battle over technology patents since the past year seeking a ban on each other’s products throughout the globe.
