According to two reports published today, Apple will be launching their new iPhone on October 14th in the U.S along with several other countries on the roster.
The news comes from Boy Genius Report in a post where they cite Macotakara’s report which claims that the next iPhone will be launched in selected markets on October 14th.
The October 14th release date seems quite likely to us, especially in the wake of Apple’s official announcement regarding their media event, which will be held on October 4th at their own campus in Cupertino. The event invite image has “Let’s Talk iPhone” written on it which, well, very obviously suggests that we’ll be seeing iPhone-related hardware announcements, reportedly in a keynote from new CEO Tim Cook himself.
Just a note that the first batches of Apple products usually have a flaw or two – iPhone 3: screen dimming, switches (vibrate and volume) and home button broke easily – iPhone 4: antenna issues resulting in in dropped calls. Might be best to wait a month and see what comes out in consumer reports.
