New rumor says iPhone 5 launches just days ahead of Black Friday.
It is pretty much consensus in the Apple rumor mill that Apple will unveil the iPhone 5 in September. When the iPhone 5 is actually shipping has not been discussed much yet. UK's gadget magazine T3 picked up a rumor that the iPhone 5 launches on November 21 in the UK. The information comes from a representative of phone retailer Phones4U. It is hard to say how much time will pass between the iPhone 5 (or is it just an iPhone 4S) announcement and the release. If this iPhone 5 UK release date would also be true for the US, it would put the iPhone 5 launch in the crazy Black Friday week (Black Friday 2011 is Nov. 25).
My guess is though that Apple is not waiting that long with the iPhone 5 release. Next month they will unveil iOS 5 at the WWDC 2011. Developers will then have all summer to prepare their apps for iOS 5. So there is no need for Apple to unveil the iPhone 5 and than wait for developers to adjust their apps. I think Apple will start the sale within a week or two after the September announcement.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
