Apple iPhone 5 release date now in September?

Suppliers say phone will be out in second week of September

Apple has given its iPhone 5 device a September release date, according to a Chinese newspaper that also claims Apple has ordered 4m handsets to be made by its Far Eastern suppliers

Rumblings around the iPhone 5’s potential release date are continuing, with a Chinese newspaper now claiming the revamped device will not be out until the second week of September.

The China Times says Apple has ordered four million of the devices from its Far Eastern suppliers, with production only now beginning to ramp up. Word is there are 400,000 trial models being made first.

What’s more, it seems Apple's so-called iPad 3 will not be unleashed at the same time, with tight component supplies apparently pushing the release of the Retina Display-packing slate back to November.
