iPhone 5 release date set as September 5th in the US?

iPhone 5 release coming to US one month before Europe?

Amid growing speculation of an August iPhone 5 release date, fresh reports have claimed the next-gen smartphone will launch in September in the US, making an August UK launch highly unlikely...

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 aslimmer form factor, the reportedly leaked September 5th arrival would see the handset land on a Monday casting doubts over the validity of such claims.

When do you think we will see the Apple iPhone 5 release date set for? August, September, couldn’t care less? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
