When is Apple coming out with the iPhone 5?


This year Apple has released the iPhone 4/Verizon and the iPhone S/unlocked. I read that IOS5 is coming out soon too. But when is there going to be a new iphone? I don’t want to buy a version 4 if version 5 is coming out soon.

As far as an actual iPhone 5 goes, I suspect it'll be another year or so before we see that. And who knows what it will have in terms of features. We'll see, I guess.

"The iPhone 5 release date will be this Summer, according to a previously-reliably source at Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) contract manufacturer, Foxconn. The final design seems nearly finalized, and production is already 'gearing up.' In IT Blogwatch, bloggers debate veracity of tittle-tattle.

[The] iPhone 5, as it is currently being called, is now gearing for production..various sample devices are also floating around..it is impossible to tell which one will be the final. Some things in common with all of them: .. 4+ inch display..symmetrical in thickness (also longer/wider). "
