Many buyers may be disappointed in iPhone 5 release date cancelation. Buyers expected iPhone 5 to be released in July or August. There are speculations that iPhone 5 will be released in Labor Day or in the middle of next year, but that would be interfered with the probable release dates of iPad 3, iOS 5 and iPhone 4S. There are actually 5 possible times for iPhone 5 release date; it could be on the Labor Day, in the late September/early October, before Christmas, in the spring 2012, and summer 2012. However, none of these dates are confirmed yet. Read more for details.
The Ideal Time of iPhone 5 Release Date
Apple usually releases its devices on Fridays. So, the Labor Day in September 9th would be a good date to release iPhone 5. Moreover, people are still in Summer-break-hangover. They would easily be distracted by the news of iPhone 5 release date. Thus, it is a really good date to release the fifth generation of iPhone which people are waiting for. However, it is only a few weeks to go. This must be a bit rushed if Apple is forced to launch iPhone 5 on the Labor Day even though it is pretty much possible.
iPhone 5: Speculations of Release Date
Late September or early October is actually a perfect time for Apple to release iPhone 5. It is well-known that late September or early October is believed as the beginning of the holiday shopping season. iPhone 5 release date on the holiday shopping season will be just ideal. There must be a lot more prospective buyers. But, there are will be any other Apple devices’ release date on September/October. The new iPods will be launched in September. So it would be tricky if iPhone 5 release date is in the same month as iPods’. Therefore, October would be ideal.
If iPhone 5 is not released in September or October, then the last option is releasing the iPhone 5 just before Christmas if Apple is forced to release iPhone 5 this year. But, as a matter of fact, this would be a bit rushed too because Apple has to deal with iPhone 4 marketing. It is predicted that buyers will be more interested in buying iPhone 4 in that kind of time.
There is also a probability about iPhone 5 release date. It would be in the spring 2012. It means that Apple has taken its time, not rushed it off. But, iPad 3 will be released in the spring of 2012. Apple, of course, doesn’t want their own devices – iPhone 5 and iPad 3 – get involved in such competition. Moreover, there is an assumption that iPhone 5 will come out just like an upgraded-cheaper version kind of iPhone 4. As a result, buyers will tend to buy iPad 3. Nonetheless, spring 2012 is actually possible for iPhone 5 release date because Apple has prepared for it. The last probable release date of iPhone 5 is in the summer of 2012. But, this just won’t happen. It is too late for Apple to release the next generation of iPhone. In brief, Apple should release iPhone 5 in 2011 if they don’t want their products to step in each other’s toes. Therefore, the most probable dates of iPhone 5 release date are in the Labor Day or in October.
