So far, according to rumors, those waiting for the next iPhone should expect a new, larger and widescreen display as well as a smaller dock connector on the sixth generation iPhone. While there is really no shortage of rumors — and they seem to affect current iPhone 4S sales to a certain extent — we haven’t really heard of a release date confirmed by more than one source/rumor.
Of course there was the August 7 rumor — which we’ll soon find out about — but according to a French online publication, September 21 is the release date for the iPhone 5. Based on sources within Chinese accessory makers, App4phone is reporting that Apple might have included the September 21 bit given out to these accessory manufacturers. Last year’s iPhone 4S was launched in October on the 14th, a little bit off from previous year’s dates, and September 21 seems to be off every previous date (given that Apple usually makes the phone available ten days after its announcement). A September 11 keynote is possible but highly unlikely though.
