Apple’s iPhone 5 is expected to be released this fall during the annual event where the company for the past three years has unveiled the next gen iPods. A new report published by The China Times now specifically mentions iPhone 5 availability during the second week of September.
The report further mentions that Apple has asked its suppliers to be prepared with an initial order of 4 million units and are currently preparing for 400,000 trial run units. Apple would be looking at introducing a new iPhone in September as that would be closer to the holiday season which could give a tremendous boost in sales.
Earlier this year Apple introduced Verizon iPhone 4 and then the white model which would have forced the company to delay the introduction of iPhone 5. The next gen iPhone is expected to feature 8 MP camera, larger screen and dual-core A5 chip.
The report also notes that iPad 3 launch could be delayed due to component shortages. However, we don’t expect the Cupertino, Calif., based company to announce the third gen iPad before 2012.
