Carrier Seems To Confirm September iPhone 5 Arrival


It sure seems like almost a given at this point that Apple will announce the iPhone 5 in September, with units reaching consumers sometime closer to the end of the month. After all, we’ve heard that general schedule rumored time and time again. We still don’t have anything like official word from Apple, but we are getting closer to confirmation from a reliable source, upon one carrier promoting the new iPhone for a September arrival.

German carrier Mobilecom Debitel has been talking quite a bit about a new phone for September. It mentions things like “perhaps a bigger screen of 4 inches or a thinner cell touchscreen”, both of which seem to fit with what we’ve heard about the iPhone 5. While the page containing those hints is coy about the identity opf the phone itself.

In a email the carrier’s been sending to its users, it’s a little more clear about just what phone we’re talking about: “Additionally, there’s now all the info about the iPhone, which is expected in September.”

In separate Apple news, there’s a report out that iPad mini production is about to go through the roof. Supposedly, Apple’s suppliers have been manufacturing a few hundred thousand units per month since June. If this rumor’s correct, the company is about to greatly pick up the pace, moving up to four million units a month in September. That will hopefully mean plenty of iPad minis to go around this fall.
