iPhone 5 release date nears as latest iPhone 5 rumours suggest handset to be shipped from manufacturers in September
With the iPhone 5 release date still a mystery and the subject of much speculation, latest reports have suggested that rumoured iPhone 5 manufacturer Pegatron will begin shipping the device in September.
Tipped as one of the manufacturing plants to have secured a contract to produce the iPhone 5 for Apple, Pegatron is reportedly finishing off the first wave of its quota of 10 million handsets ahead of a September shipping date.
Citing “industry sources”, Chinese tech blog and repeated Apple rumour starter DigiTimes has claimed that “shipments will start in September” after “Pegatron Technology landed orders for 10 million units of iPhone 5.”
Whilst most iPhone 5 rumours have suggested the mooted Apple handset will touch down in September, a number of recent reports have claimed the currently unconfirmed handset will instead launch in early October.
