Latest Reports Put iPhone 5 Release in September – iPad 3 on the Way?

News Reported by Valerie Lauer


The latest round of rumors about the iPhone 5 release date as originally reported by Bloomberg news organization suggest the device could be in our hands in September.

Other dates have recently been bandied about, including a report of an August release from Boy Genius, and an October prediction from Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

The good news about all these reports is that the time frame is relatively consistent. The possibility of an actual iPhone 5 release date before the end of the year is getting warmer by the minute.

Feature Updates

The latest report also includes some of the features Bloomberg’s anonymous sources say will be included in the iPhone 5. They say to expect an A5 processor chip, similar to the one currently used in the iPad 2.

Several conjectures about some serious camera updates are out there too. Bloomberg’s report says the iPhone’s rear facing camera will receive a hefty update, going from a 5 megapixel camera that the current iPhone 4 has to a much more powerful 8 megapixel camera. There is also a rumor that the 1 megapixel front-facing camera could be an astonishing 5 megapixels. Recent reports also suggest the phone may have dual flash capabilities.

iPad 3 Rumors Commence

Bloomberg’s sources also hinted that a higher resolution iPad 3 may be in the works. Details about the rumored iPad 3 are not quite as prevalent. Screen updates are projected to be similar to the iPhone 4’s current Retina display model.


Conflicting Reports

The iPhone 5 rumor mill has been producing a large variety of reports, as usual. Bloomberg’s sources suggest that the iPhone 5 will have several feature updates, but will not stray too far from the current iPhone model.

Just a day before the Bloomberg report surfaced, Boy Genius told a much different story. Reporter Jonathan Geller announced an iPhone 4GS would be an internal upgrade to the current model, and that users could expect a completely new product with different dimensions and even shape when the iPhone 5 is released.
