Newest iPhone to Ship in September

By Michelle Amodio April 20, 2011

Nothing stirs the rumor pot quite like iOS devices, particularly the not-yet-in-existence iPhone 5.

In what was rumored to be a June 2011 launch, the supposed iPhone 5 is now slated for a September 2011 debut. Reuters is reporting that production of the iPhone 5 will begin in July or August, and Apple will ship it to the public in September, according to “three people with direct knowledge of the company's supply chain.”

One of the sources said the new phone would have a faster processor and look largely similar to the current iPhone 4, the report said, adding that the people declined to be identified because the plans weren't yet public.

So far, there's no verification on any of these claims, however one of the biggest rumors for the iPhone 5 is the inclusion of near-field communication support. NFC, which is becoming an increasingly common feature of high-end smartphones, allows for contact-less information transfer at very short ranges - and is considered to be the next big thing in mobile payment technology. Rumors have stated both that Apple will and will not be fitting NFC technology to the iPhone 5. Naturally, the company is keeping quiet as to which rumor is accurate.

A better idea of what we can expect the iPhone 5 to be like will be after Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference, where they’ve publicly stated to unveil the new iOS 5 that the iPhone 5 will sport when released.

In other iPhone news, a video was recently uploaded on YouTube showing the soon to be released white iPhone 4 carrying a whopping 64GB along with some pretty nifty new features. The video shows a white iPhone 4 with 64 GB storage capacity with a never before seen version of the iOS 4 prototype that never got released.

It also shows ‘expose multitasking’ that would show everything that’s currently open, instead of hiding it as the iPhone 4 currently does.
