iPhone 5 and iPad 3 release date nears as production begins

The Apple iPhone 5 release date looks set to be just a few short months away - possibly being released on the same day as the iPad 3 - with Taiwanese suppliers already reportedly manufacturing parts for both devices

iPhone 5 and iPad 3 component suppliers in Taiwan have begun producing parts for the upcoming Apple devices ahead of an autumn release date, new reports suggest.

Foxconn, the company behind the overall assembly of Apple’s handheld devices, as well as a number of smaller component suppliers responsible for the likes of the units’ cameras, batteries and chassis, are all reported by tech blog Digitimes to have ramped up production ahead of a large order from the consumer electronics giant. 

The report, which goes on to suggest that between 5 and 6 million iPhone 5 handsets will be shipped in the third quarter of the year -alongside an unknown number of iPad 3 devices -  comes amid rumours that  Apple’s iPhone 5 release date will fall in September, whilst hinting at a possible simultaneous iPad 3 arrival.

While there have been few reports of what new features any iPad 3 tablet will boast, the iPhone 5 has been a hot topic on the rumour mill for some months. It is believed the device will come complete with an A5 1GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities and a larger, 720p HD display. And in may last year, the rumour mill went into overdrive after Apple iPhone 5 photos were reportedly leaked online. 

We don't know about you but T3  cannot wait to get our hands on one!
