Apple users waiting for the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 could see both pop up by early September.
"We expect Apple to unveil iOS 6 GM (Golden Master) in early September," KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in a note obtained by AppleInsider. "Based on the release schedule for iOS 6 GM, there is a very good chance iPhone 5 will start shipping also in early September."
Last year, Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S in October, triggering a slow September quarter as consumers held off purchases in anticipation of the new model. Kicking off the next phone this September would help Apple end the calendar third quarter on a high note, according to Kuo.
So, what does the analyst expect to see in the next-generation iPhone?
