Numerous reports are entertaining a rumor indicating that September 7th will be the day Apple launches the highly anticipated iPhone 5. Typically, Apple releases its new phones at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), but this year it did not happen. Although this event that takes place on September 7th is typically reserved for iPod launches, it could be for the iPhone as well.
A Japanese website is claiming that September 7th (September 8th on that side of the world) is the day Apple will introduce the iPhone 5. When asked for a source, the Japanese website simply said it came from “a source in the know.” The site, Kodawarshian, as apparently accurately reported Apple rumors in the past several years.
We all know how to treat rumors, so lets treat this as such. But lets entertain the possibility for a minute. Although the date may be correct, it might not even be when Apple decided to introduce the iPhone 5. AllThingsD is reporting that the iPhone 5 wont launch until October.
It would make sense to have the iPhone and iPod announced together but who knows. As far as the new iPods go, reports indicate a new 1.3mp camera for the iPod. Apple needs to introduce some new features in order to jump out of its sales slump with its iPod line.
