Apple’s iPhone 5 release date has been confirmed by the CEO of a major overseas mobile phone carrier.
|The next gen iPhone is said to look like the current iPhone 4|
Stephane let the date slip when speaking to French media, saying “If we believe what we have been told, the iPhone 5 will be released on 15 October.”
What does that mean for Australia you ask? Well, Apple’s traditional business methods indicate that Australia will be getting it anytime within a month after its overseas launch.
The iPhone 4 was launched in the UK and US on the 24th of June, while Australia had to wait a whole week more before it graced our pockets.
As a release date, the 15th does have some credence behind it, as Apple is releasing its Gold Master iOS 5 on September 23rd, just ahead of the next iPhone.
The iPhone 5 is said to inherit the iPhone 4’s exterior (although a larger screen made possible through a finer bezel) and 512MB of RAM. Little else is known about the device.
