Apple is to officially launch the much mooted Apple iPhone 5 in September as new reports suggest the handset has entered the final stages of testing.

Having opted to do away with its usual annual product cycle in failing to unveil the iPhone 5 at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference that ran in San Francisco last week, Apple is believed to be heading for a September reveal with MacRumors claiming the Cupertino company has just entered the final stages of testing for the heavily rumoured handset.

Having unveiled iOS 5 ahead of its announced autumn rollout it is believed Apple will launch the fifth generation iPhone handset to coincide with the hefty software update with September having been repeatedly leaked and rumoured as the device’s launch period.

With Apple’s product cycles usually seeing September as the time to refresh the range of iPod devices, this years autumn opener could see a bumper offering with the iPhone 5 expected to touch down with an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities and the same A5 ARM processor as found in the iPad 2.
