iMore which has earlier said that Apple would launch iPhone 5 event on September 12, 2012, now reveals that iPhone 5 pre-orders “are currently planned to begin that same day” in the U.S.
The blog on the website iMore has attributed this information to the sources that have provided it with accurate iPhone related launch dates in the past.
The fifth iteration of the device that helped revolutionize the mobile industry is expected to sport a thinner, larger screen and a smaller dock connector, among other tweaks, sources and analysts have told reuters.
Some analysts said a September release date for the new iPhone would work financially for Apple, helping the company end the calendar third quarter on a high note with a possible heavy demand for the upcoming holiday shopping season.
Photos of what look like a close to final version of the iPhone 5 surfaced on the Internet last week showing its curved backplane, all of its buttons, the speakers, and its screen, as well as a headphone jack that has been relocated from the top of the phone to the bottom.
