iPhone 5 release date now 16 August?

Apple seeking 'full-time iPhone staff' from 16 August to October 29, according to a job listing supposedly being advertised by Apple. Will it really launch the new iPhone 5 then?

Could the Apple iPhone 5 be launching on 16 August? That’s the rumour sweeping the web this morning, after CNET got its hands on an Apple job listing looking for, “…full-time iPhone Sales Staff,” from that date until 29 October.

The listing, posted by UK recruitment agency Reed, covers a slew of areas across the UK and seems to specifically be targeting workers to look after iPhone concessions in larger department stores.

The date has led to speculation that Apple is looking to launch the iPhone 5 on or around that date, falling weeks earlier than its much-mooted September release date. It had been assumed that Steve Jobs would use his annual iPod keynote to tout the next-gen blower.

For now, we’re taking this one with a huge pinch of salt. But Apple’s notorious when it comes to pulling surprises.

 

Will the iPhone 5 be outed on 16 August? Let us know what you think now on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
