Apple iPhone 5 launches later than expected says new rumor.
Until now the Apple rumor mill favored September as the release month for the iPhone 5. A couple weeks ago we saw some rumors that said Apple would already launch the new iPhone in August. Now John Paczkowski over at AllThingsD reports that the release of the iPhone 5 is actually in October.

The report refers to sources with knowledge of the situation say that the launch of the iPhone 5 is in September. Basically rendering all reports that carry a September launch date for the iPhone 5 as false.
We do not know how credible the source is, but October sounds as feasible as September as launch month for the iPhone 5. It could even be that Apple still has not settled on a firm launch date for the iPhone 5.
This will be the first fall launch for an iPhone making it difficult to predict. It is though the case that several of the rumors that mention a September launch for the iPhone 5 have at least some kind of evidence. There are vacation blocking reports, alleged statements of carrier executives and indicators from the supply chain.
