iPhone 5 release imminent as iPhone 4 stocks down?

Reduced Q2 Apple iPhone 4 orders hint at an imminent iPhone 5 arrival, according to fresh reports. But still no word on an official release date from Apple HQ

Apple’s mooted iPhone 5 could be hear sooner than many expected as new reports claim Apple has lowered second quarter orders of the current iPhone 4 in preparation of its replacements arrival.

Technology blog Digitimes has claimed that “according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers” Apple has lowered its quarterly order of iPhone 4s by more than 2 million units as the Cupertino tech giant lines up the iPhone 5, tipped to be officially called the iPhone 4S, for a June 6th unveiling at the opening of its Worldwide Developers Conference.

With stock levels of the iPhone 4 set to drop in the near future Digitimes, not content with seemingly outing Apple’s iPhone timeline plans, boldly claimed its sources had revealed the iPhone 5 will begin production in August ahead of a September launch whilst “the rear camera will be upgraded to a 8-megapixel resolution model.”

Smartphone retailer Phones4u earlier this week told T3.com that "the iPhone 5 has been delayed until November following an issue with the handset's software.” They later reiterated: “Apple had a software issue with the handset so they are still waiting to fix that up so it will be November when it is coming out.”
