Will September ever come so we all can stop wondering when Apple will officially announce the release date for the next iPhone? It seems like the iPhone 5 speculations have been going on for over a year now, but until Apple pulls back the covers it’s all just hearsay. A Japanese site that focuses on the tech space claims that someone “in the know” has confirmed that Apple will indeed introduce the iPhone 5, and possibly a free iCloud iPhone at an undisclosed September 7th event. Apple typically highlights new iPod releases during this time frame, so this is why many insiders think that Steve will use this event to blow everyone’s minds out of their ears with his new lineup of phones.
In regards to the iCloud iPhone, which could also be announced at this 9/7 event, it’ll combine the wonders of iOS 5 with the iCloud tech to give users a cheap alternative to the iPhone 5. Supposedly the iCloud phone will almost entirely rely on cloud storage for memory purposes, so it won’t ship with much local flash storage at all. This phone will possibly be given away for free if you sign up for a two year contract because it has less internal parts and therefore it’s cheaper than the iPhone 5.
I’m putting some faith behind this rumored 9/7 Apple event. Too many sources have been throwing the month of September around as the official month to unveil Steve’s next innovative creation, and this latest bit of news only adds more validity to those claims. Now it’s all just rumor, but I’d be flabbergasted if we make it through September 2011 without getting any iPhone 5 details. Stay tuned and get those funds in order, because September could be an exciting month yet gut punchingly expensive. You’ve just been wanting some official news about the damn iPhone 5…
