According to the most recent Internet rumors making rounds about the possible launch timeline of Apple's next iPhone version - iPhone 5, as it is widely referred to -, the much-awaited handset will probably be released some time in September.
With rumor-mills abuzz about a possible September release of the iPhone 5, the speculations about the smartphone's launch have become somewhat more specific than the earlier reports of a `sometime in fall' debut of the handset - most likely either in September or in October.
In fact, some of the blogs and news sites have even given the precise date for the iPhone 5's launch - September 21 -, largely on the basis of a report that emerged on the French blog App4Phone.
The latest rumors that Apple will probably launch iPhone 5 in September appear to be comparatively stronger than the previous `September or October' speculations; with the Guardian also mentioning in a Tuesday report that mobile phone companies are hopeful that the new iPhone will likely be launched in mid-September.
In addition, a recent MacRumors' report has also revealed that, going by the projections voiced by KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo -- who is generally right on such matters -, that iPhone 5 will debut `closer to the beginning of September.'
However, Apple has refrained from commenting on the rumors, with the company CEO Tim Cook saying: "I'm not going to put any energy into trying to get people to stop speculating."
