Apple is to give an iPhone 5 release date of September 5th new reports have claimed after the handset’s launch date was leaked by a European retailer.
Speaking with Italian iPhone blog iPhone Italia mobile network provider Swisscom revealed it is to launch the next-generation Apple handset on October 5th, reportedly one month after the device is to touch down in the US.
Quoting a “very reliable source” in the form of a senior executive at Swisscom the touted September 5th iPhone 5 release date would fall in line with the many rumours of a September launch that were seemingly backed up by Apple during a quarterly profits call last month.
Whilst a September arrival is expected for the mooted iPhone 5 that is tipped to be launching with 1GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel camera and a slimmer form factor, the reportedly leaked September 5th arrival would see the handset land on a Monday casting doubts over the validity of such claims.
