There has been no shortage of speculation about the release of iPhone 5.

If Apple decides to wait a full 12 months after releasing the previous model, the iPhone 4S, then the new iPhone won’t be released until October.

There are a number of iPhone 4 users who are now off contract and not prepared to move to the iPhone 4S because it looks like the device they’ve used for two years and they know a new iPhone could just be around the corner.
