iPhone 5 to land in October, not September

Unicorn

With all of the rumors and false sightings, we were starting to believe there was more myth and legend to it all than truth. Now, it seems that a credible source is declaring a month for launch of the magic beast known as iPhone 5. Just in time for the Christmas shopping spree (as if it needed the boost for sales) the iPhone will have its newest edition launching in October, 2011.

Last week, Gizmodo reported that AT&T employees were barred from requesting vacation time the last 2 weeks of September, prompting the nature cry of, “It must be the iPhone launch!” John Paczkowski from AllThingsD received a different report.

“I don’t know why AT&T’s calling for all hands on deck those weeks, but it’s not for an iPhone launch,” a source familiar with Apple’s planstold Paczkowski.

Instead, it was revealed that October is the magic month, though an exact date was not disclosed. Now, the speculations and rumors about the build, processors, resolution, speed, additional features, dimensions, and everything else big and small pertaining to the smartphone will begin. How long will it be before a prototype surfaces?

They will release it at their “Media” event in September. Apple has never released anything in October.
