The iPhone 5 UK launch may be the second week of September according to a new report from China Times, while the much-rumoured iPad 3 may follow in November.
The paper cites sources at Chinese suppliers who claim that Apple has put in an initial order for 4 million new iPhone units, with suppliers already lining up 400,000 trial units.
There have been myriad reports that the next iPhone will launch at what is traditionally Apple's iPod event this September; usually Jobs and co treat us to new phone hardware at WWDC in June, but the iPhone 5 was conspicuous in its absence at this year's conference.
A September launch seems to be growing ever more likely, with 'fall' also pegged as the iOS 5 release date; however, this new report is the most specific yet and we're not completely convinced about the second week of September itself.
Meanwhile, rumours that Apple will again break with tradition and launch a third iteration of the iPad towards the end of the year are also failing to die.
China Times hasn't got a flawless track record on Apple rumours; it was only close-ish when it predicted an October 2009 launch for the first iPad (it debuted in April 2010) but the fact that the 2011 release date for the iPad 3 rumours prevail make us suspect there could be something in it.
