The french blog, App4phone.fr claim that a large Chinese accessory maker has told them that they have been directed by Apple to be prepared for the new iPhone 5 on September 21st 2012.
This would make sense as Apple’s release date schedule is normally around that date, just a month after their usual October announce date.
The only thing I’m not to sure about is something that Cultofmac pointed out, that if Apple sticks to the same time frame as the iPhone 4S announcement (presuming this release date is true), then that would mean they would be taking to the stage just ten days earlier, which if you can do your math means the announcement event would be on 9/11.
As always we don’t know anything till it happens, so we will just have to wait and see. In the meantime drop us a comment below with what you think about this release date.
