iPhone 5 Said to Be Ready for WWDC 2012
Apple swayed from its traditional June unveiling for the iPhone 4S, choosing instead to hold the official launch at a dedicated “Let’s Talk iPhone” event in October. But we may not have to wait until this upcoming October to get a glimpse of the iPhone 5.
According to a report, the sixth-generation Apple smartphone will get back to its traditional June announcement at Apple’s Worldwide Developers conference.
The report comes from Daiwa Securities, which claims that Apple’s iPhone 5 will see the same WWDC unveiling that given to the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4. Furthermore, the company says the device will utilize “glass to glass” touch panel technology that will be supplied by TPK Holdings and Wintek.
To most people this doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Many reports circulating before the launch of the iPhone 4S last year claimed that 2010′s iPhone event was simply delayed so that Apple could perfect its iPhone 5 which was postponed at the last minute and substituted for the iPhone 4S.
Apple has yet to announce the date of its WWDC event for 2012, but a previously leaked calendar suggests that it could happen between June 10 and June 15.
