Do you like your iPhone rumors with a little bit of an international twist? The latest one we’ve heard about the upcoming launch of Apple’s next-gen iPhone hardware may be coming through a little bit mangled thanks to Google Translate, but the gist is clear: it claims the US will be getting the next iPhone on September 5, with its international release a month later on October 5.
The rumor comes out of Italy, where supposedly an anonymous executive at mobile carrier Swisscom leaked the info to iPhoneItalia. The site seems very confident in the source’s reliability, and if he is who they say he is, it does stand to reason that he might be aware of launch plans two months in advance of when his company would get its hands on the phone.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t seem to offer any new information in the iPhone 4S/5 controversy, just that whatever Apple’s next iPhone is, it would hit the US on September 5 and Europe on October 5.
