Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off on June 6th. Historically, this is when Apple has unveiled the next iPhone. So should we expect the iPhone 5? Sorry, but we still don’t know.
However, Phil Schiller has said that “At this year’s conference we are going to unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS”. So it’s probably a safe bet that Apple will want to have their latest piece of hardware on hand to show off the latest iOS. But this doesn’t mean that the iPhone 5 will launch shortly after. In fact, iOS 5 is likely to arrive later in the year, around fall time, which means that the iPhone 5 could follow suit. This would also give Verizon more time to sell their version of the iPhone and position the iPhone 5 in time for holiday shopping.
What do you think? iPhone 5 launching this summer or fall? In terms of updates, we’re hearing that the iPhone 5 will sports a metal back (iPhone 1 like), larger 4-inch screen and a faster processor.
