Contradicting an earlier report from a recruiter, the head of Human Resources for a Foxconn factory says the new iPhone is coming in October, reports Kotaku.

According to a recently published article, the paper asked the head of human resources at Foxconn's Taiyuan factory about the iPhone 5 release date. The human resources head apparently told the paper, "We just got the order. It [the release] will be around October."

While its unlikely that either of these employees know when Apple is going to launch the new iPhone, Foxconn is hiring a large number of workers presumably to help manufacture the generation device.

October would not be surprising but nor would June/July. The reason being that The summer release date would swipe up the people ending their 2yr commitment from the ip4. It would seem like bad business to have those people off contract ready to upgrade but no 'new' device for 3-4 months. That could lead to them straying. Of course Apple will do what it wants to do. I guess it'll depend on if the manufacturer can get it out on time, if iOS 6 is ready and if the whole design is complete which I'd highly assume it is.
