The iPhone 5 release date rumors are heating up now as sources have recently reported that Apple is going to launch its next generation iPhone in June this year at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) to be held that month.
Apple usually follows the schedule of iPhone release in summer although its iPhone 4S was an exception, having been released in October last year. It may also happen that Apple would plan to release iPhone 5 in a totally separate event of its own sponsoring and not in industry events like CES as WWDC.According to Digitimes
“Apple is expected to unveil its iPhone 5 smartphone at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) to be held in June 2012, the Chinese-language Commercial Times quoted Daiwa Securities as indicating.”
This news may or may not be true so the best thing to do is to wait till June and see what happens. Now that iPad 3 release date rumors also seem to be materializing with the news that it is to be in March this year it seems the rumors about iPhone 5 release could be true too.
There are also rumors stating that the iPhone 5 features will include glass to glass (G/G) touch panel technology and recently photos revealed by the Phone Arena have led to believe that both the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 features would include AT&T micro-SIM cards to make them LTE-enabled due to AT&T micro-SIM cards. And last but not the least there would surely be an iPhone 5 Siri upgrade, as Siri has been a boon for Apple.
