The iPhone 5, Apple’s next full on smartphone sequel, may not hit stores until the Autumn, according to a new report from Macotakara.
An unnamed source has told the Japanese website that an October launch is the most likely time we will see a new iPhone be revealed, shifting the once-traditional summer launch cycle to the Autumn, as first seen with the release of the iPhone 4S.
Set to go head-to-head with Android giants like the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3, the iPhone 5 is expected to land with a quad-core processor, 4G download speeds and NFC technology, with some rumours also pointing towards a larger, more pixel-dense screen.
It looks set to be another busy year for Apple, who are thought to have an iPad 3 well into production, and a superslim MacBook Pro revamp waiting in the wings.
