Apple will lift the covers off the iPhone 5 on 12 September, according to a new rumour from iMore, with pre-orders for the device opening on the same day.
That puts shipments of the iPhone 5 down for nine days later, meaning the first wave of customers could be getting their hands on the phone on 21 September.
However, iMore also suggest that these dates may only be applicable to US markets, with international markets including the UK getting the iPhone 5 in October. The rumoured UK street date is now Friday 5 October.
With BGR citing an AT&T source for their October leak (with a regional AT&T staff training event pushed back in order to accommodate a “huge announcement” in September), things are looking reasonably solid here.
Septermber 12th could well be a busy day in Cupertino.
