Apple iPhone 5 ships in September according to Reuters

Reuters reports today that Apple will ship the iPhone 5 in September. This is not the first time we reported about the September iPhone 5 launch date. Of course when Reuters carries this rumor it becomes more likely. There have been other rumors that suggested a 2012 release for the iPhone 5. A new recent rumor places the iPhone 6 in the first half of 2012 though.
The information about the September launch date comes from people in the supply chain of the iPhone. The production of the new iPhone 5 is supposed to start in July and the design stays the same. It is expected that the iPhone 5 will launch with iOS 5 featuring for instance a new multi-tasking interface.

In the meantime we are awaiting the release of the white iPhone 4.

About the Apple iPhone:

The iPhone revolutionized the smartphone market and made the smartphone and touchscreens part of the mainstream gadget world. Before the iPhone, there were no other touchscreen only devices on the market.
The first iPhone went official in June of 2007 and the device was simply called the iPhone. It had EDGE connectivity only and offered no support for 3G networks, which was a sour point for many users. The other major sore point for users was that AT&T landed the exclusive on the device. The original iPhone came in 4GB and 8GB version selling for $499 and $599 respectively with no contract. The 4GB phone went for $199 on contract with AT&T.
 
The lack of 3G connectivity was fixed in the second iteration of the iPhone called the iPhone 3G. The 3G went official at WWDC in June of 2008, a year after the original iPhone surfaced. This smartphone had 3G connectivity for the AT&T network and a few improved specifications with more storage and other tweaks.
 
The next iteration of the iPhone was the iPhone 3GS that debuted in June of 2009 at WWDC. This phone supported the AT&T 3G network and added a higher resolution camera that could also record HD video. It came in black and white versions with 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB of storage. The 8GB version came after the initial launch as a way to offer the iPhone at a cheaper price. The 3GS runs a 600MHz CPU from ARM.
 
The latest version of the iPhone is the iPhone 4 that was launched in June of 2010, again at WWDC. This phone changes the shape of the iPhone a bit again and used a new Apple A4 processor and 512MB of DRAM, making it more powerful than any of the previous iPhones. The screen was also improved with a Retina display with resolution of 960 x 640. Verizon later got its own version of the iPhone 4 and marked the first time in the US the iPhone could be purchased from a carrier other than AT&T.
 
As of now, no new iPhone is expected at WWDC 2011 in June with WWDC said to focus on software. The iPhone 5 is expected later in the fall of 2011.
