iPhone 5 will be released on October 14
It’s been 14 months since the release of the iPhone 4 which is unusual for Apple which usually sticks to a 12-month product cycle.
September is also the month when the popular range of iPods are given their annual makeover so all signs are pointing to the updates being part of the upcoming iPhone event.
Rumours about the iPhone 5 have been swirling for months.
The strongest reports are suggesting the device will have a larger screen plus a thinner “tear drop” design which means it will taper in thickness from top to bottom.
Companies have already produced cases for the iPhone 5 with dimensions that indicate it will be a larger device than the iPhone 4.
As for the iPhone 4, the device will reportedly still be offered as a cheaper entry-level product after the new iPhone 5 is released.
