iPhone 5 not being launched at WWDC
iPhone likely to land during traditional September iPod event instead.
The iPhone 5 is unlikely to launch at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this June, with sources telling a number of tech writers that the event will instead be focused solely on software. Specifically an iOS update and plans for Mac OS X Lion.
One source told The Loop that, “If you go looking for iPhone 5 [at WWDC], you’re probably going to be disappointed.” Rumours suggest Apple will now wait until its annual iPod event in September to tout the new phone, with the music player now losing share as smartphone sales surge.
What’s more other insiders speaking to John Gruber at Daring Fireball reckon Apple could be poised to unleash the iPad 3 at the same event, with an upgraded MobileMe also being thrown into the equation.
