It was rumored that the iPhone 5 will be launched in the second half of October, well now we find that the iOS 5 GM could be launched before the end of September, probably in the day that Apple will hold a conference presentation of the new products.
Those from AppleInsider found that Apple partners will receive iOS 5 GM version before the end of September to install the operating system in the new iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5G devices. After installing the operating system in the device, they will be delivered in 10 – 12 days to the company’s stores in mid of the month where the official launch will take place.
If Apple will release iOS 5 GM between September 23 and 30 then the conference will take place throughout when the launch of iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5G will be scheduled on several weeks later. I knew from the last week that Apple iPhone 5 is produced by partners but without iOS 5 installed, and now we learn that iPod Touch 5G is in the same situation but the problem will be resolved over 2 weeks.
Of course everything is just about the information received by an analyst from sources inside Apple’s partner factories during the launch but it fits with everything that happened or presented so far.
