We've been hearing a lot about the date September 12 lately. That seems to be the date that has been locked in as the setting for the unveiling and announcement of the iPhone 5.
But there hasn't been much speculation about when the device would actually be released. That is starting to change, as what could be the first credible source to peg a launch date has come forward.
The blog iMore reports that it has heard from people who have provided accurate iPhone launch dates in the past, that the iPhone 5 will be available for customers beginning September 21.
As for what the expect with the new iPhone, those details are of course as sketchy as ever.
Previously released reports have led us to believe that the new device will have a potentially larger screen than any other iPhone in the past.
It could also incorporate new display technology that allows it to be even thinner than the iPhone 4S.
As for September 12, everyone is curious to see how CEO Tim Cook can handle the pressure and hype of announcing a brand new iPhone model as opposed to an incremental upgrade.
All answers will be revealed next month.
