iPhone 5 Slated for June Release?
According to a new report from Chinese newspaper Commercial Times, the iPhone 5 will be announced in June at the 2012 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
Sources inside Apple’s Foxconn plant recently revealed that production of the iPhone 5 was scaling up in anticipation of the launch, with rumors also arising that the iPhone 5 would feature a longer and wider form-factor.
While few concrete details exist, analysts have predicted that the iPhone 5 will have quad-mode 4G LTE capability to support the investment currently being placed in US 4G carrier networks. Developers have also hinted that Apple’s 6th iPhone will be NFC-enabled for short-range wireless payments.
