iPhone 5 to launch August [rumour]

Whoa, calm down son. Take this with a mighty pinch of salt and assess the facts we’re about to present.

Because Samsung is blazing ahead in the smartphone race, and because Apple shares have nicely boosted in Taiwan, the iPhone 5 is most likely scheduled for an August release.

This all stems from a media report which said that Taiwanese supplier shares to Apple have recently skyrocketed. This then points to a release earlier than October. Pretty dry stuff, but it gives us hope.

Apple’s drawn the line in the sand. With a mini-iPad coming soon, the iPhone 5 will bolster a collection of new gadgets from the mighty, but predictable Apple. Click here for other iPhone 5 rumours and drink in the tasty Apple juice.
