iPhone 5 could launch in June at Apple’s developers conference | Crave – CNET


Smartphone users chomping at the bit for the next iPhone could get a taste of it by June.

The latest rumors about Apple’s flagship phone suggest that the iPhone 5 could be announced in June at Apple’s next WWDC. This latest report comes from analysts at Daiwa Securities as reported by the Chinese newspaper Commercial Times.

The folks at 9to5Mac are predicting that WWDC will be held from June 10 to 15 this year.

The new scuttlebut follows a recent report from 9to5Mac also pointing to a summer release for the next iPhone. Citing a “reliable source at Foxconn in China,” the Apple blog site said that samples of the iPhone 5 are already “floating around” Apple. The new phone reportedly will sport a 4-inch, or larger display, with a form factor that differs from the iPhone 4 and 4S in both length and width.

If true, it means Apple will be returning to its usual schedule of unveiling the new iPhone in June. Last year marked an atypical change of pace with the iPhone 4S not reaching the market until October.

The iPhone 5, as presumably it will be called this time around, will continue to use the current glass-to-glass touch panel technology, according to the Daiwa analysts, benefiting Apple’s touch panel suppliers, including TPK Holding and Wintek.

People who bought the iPhone 4 in June of 2010 will of course be eligible to grab the iPhone 5 this time around. But those of you who went for the iPhone 4S last October will either have to wait or break your contract to pick up Apple’s next-gen phone.
