Report: iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Sept. 12, Expanded Rollout in Oct.
iMore reports that many international markets will likely start getting their hands on the new iPhone by early October.
Unlike in years past, the date for the rumored unveiling of the next-gen iPhone has held steady at Sept. 12. The iPhone 5, or whatever Apple decides to call it, is expected to hit stores by Sept. 21, and now iMore reports that more international markets will likely start getting their hands on it by early October.
Citing sources who have provided accurate Apple data in the past, iMore reported that the second wave of markets to nab the iPhone 5 will begin in the first week of October – probably Oct. 5.
In the U.S., buyers will be able to pre-order their new iPhone on Sept. 12 and it will arrive about a week later.
iMore was first to report the Sept. 12 event and Sept. 21 launch; Apple has not yet made any announcements.
Apple announced the iPhone 4S on Oct. 4, 2011, and it arrived in the U.S., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the U.K. on Oct. 14. By the end of October, the rollout expanded to 22 more countries. It arrived in Hong Kong and South Korea on Nov. 11 and in China on Jan. 13.
The iPhone rumor train is moving full-steam ahead. Several retailers – from Best Buy to Target – as well as carrier Sprint have dropped the price of the iPhone 4S in recent days, which normally signals that new iPhone is en route. Apple is also matching these lower prices when you ask, while BGR said AT&T will offer the new iPhone in the last two weeks of September.
