iPhone 5 release date 5 June?

Apple's WWDC event likely to see NFC-packing new iPhone

Online chatter claims WWDC pegged for first week in June.

Is the iPhone 5 set to outed on 5 June? The NFC-touting blower could make a debut then, with rumours flying that Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), has been lined up for the first week in June.

The eagle-eyed Mac fans at AppleBitch have been keeping an eye on the Moscone Centre website, the venue where Apple holds WWDC. From 5-9 June, the centre says it’s holding a “corporate meeting”, a phrase used in previous years by Apple in reference to its developer bash.

This coincides with leaked dates in the San Francisco Chronicle. If these dates are spot on, we’re likely to see the iPhone 5 take a bow on the first day of proceedings, as was the case with the iPhone 3GS in 2009 and the iPhone 4 in 2010.

The iPhone 5 is expected to rock NFC smarts, as well as a rumoured slimline design. Stay tuned here and to our Facebook and Twitter pages for more as we get it.
