iPhone 5 release date nears as iPhone 4 stocks drop

Apple iPhone 4 stocks dip hinting at iPhone 5 launch

iPhone 4 stocks drop hinting at an imminent iPhone 5 release date

The iPhone 5 release date is edging nearer as after months of endless rumours and speculation new reports have suggested stocks of the iPhone 4 have dropped ahead of the new handset’s arrival.

Following Apple’s second quarter products call which saw the Cupertino firm hint at a September arrival for the eagerly awaited iPhone 5, new reports have claimed US network provider Verizon Wireless has begun clearing its stocks of the existing Apple handset.

A usual indicator that a new Apple product is in the pipeline, reduced stock levels have reportedly been joined by a number of discounts and deals on iPhone 4 accessory bundles with retailers.

Latest rumours have suggested that the Apple iPhone 5 will launch this September boasting the same 1GHz dual-core A5 processor found in the iPad 2 alongside an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities and a thinner form factor despite leaked pictures of a claimed iPhone 5 prototype revealing an iPhone 4-esque design earlier this week.
