iOS 5 gold build to hit manufacturers this month

iPhone 5 release date hinted at as reports suggest the iOS 5 gold build is to be sent to manufacturers

Adding to the ever growing list of iPhone 5 rumours new reports have suggested that Apple is to send the completed iOS 5 master build to manufacturers later this month ahead of a mid-October iPhone 5 release date.

Speaking with gadget blog MacRumors industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that Apple is to issue iPhone hardware manufacturers with the iOS 5 gold build between September 23rd and 30th.

Seemingly backing up the numerous mid-October iPhone 5 release date rumours, the latest reports have suggested that a number of iPhone 5 handsets have already been manufactured and are simply awaiting the iOS 5 upload before being shipped.

Further rumoured iPhone 5 features to have emerged in recent weeks have suggested that the much mooted handset will land in 16GB and 32GB forms with black and white handsets to be made available with an 8-megapixel camera, 1GHz dual-core processor and a new, slimmer form factor.
