Apple iPhone 5 is pegged for September 12, 2012 unveil date, with a Release date of Sept. 21, 2012.

Apple is gearing up to unveil the iPhone 5 at an event on 12 September, 11 months after the launch of its previous flagship smartphone, according to reports.
Asker's Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

If the iPhone 5 release follows previous years then it should be released at the end of June 2011 or beginning of July 2011. Verizon has also come out and said that their unlimited data plan pricing will be changing this summer, which is a signal that they will be getting ready for an influx of new customers buying the new iPhone 5.

However, with that said there's been some rumors going around that iPhone 5 will be delayed until September due to supply issues and to coincide with the release of iPad 3. This seems unlikely, if the past iPhone releases are any predictor of the future.

Below is the previous release dates for the Apple iPhone:

- The first original Apple iPhone was released on June 29, 2007;
- iPhone 3G was released on July 11, 2008;
- iPhone 3GS was released in the U.S., Canada and six European countries on June 19, 2009.
- iPhone 4 was released on June 24, 2010
"Like clockwork, Reuters has added to the tally of fifth-generation iPhone rumors. Citing three anonymous sources "with direct knowledge of the company's supply chain," Reuters claims Apple's fifth-generation iPhone will have a faster processor, and begin shipping in September.

That means mass production of the phone would have to start no later than August, with an announcement likely to come at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in June." - via PCMag,2817,2383856, –  Answers  Apr 20th, 2011 at 6:42 PM

October I believe.

I think it's in either somewhere in june or july

Now that the WWDC 2011 keynote is over, it's become pretty clear that the the fifth-generation iPhone and the new mobile iOS 5.0 will be released this Fall (September). At this time, there is every reason to believe that the iPhone 5 and iOS 5 release dates will coincide and happen in September.

The iPhone 5th generation is going to be realeased in late September 2011 when the ios 5 is released. It will have all of the features ios 5 will have. If you have common sense, you would realize if ios 5 is coming out, the iPhone 5 will!!!

It should be out by no later than september

If it's before Dec. 3, I'll be fine! I can't wait. My upgrade is Dec. 3 and I planning to wait for the iPhone 5! :)

september 2011

hopefully soon good by pos blackberry
