Apple to Use Its September Event to Unveil the iPhone 5?

Apple may be planning to use its annual September media event to unveil the iPhone 5, according to a Digital Daily report.

Increasingly, I’m hearing speculation about the company possibly commandeering its annual September media event to launch the device instead. Which seems plausible. Buzz-wise, the iPod has been subsumed by the iPhone... So why not spice things up by throwing the iPhone into the mix? Doing so would not only give Apple a few more months to prep the device and the services rumored to launch alongside it, it would re-energize one of the company’s most important annual events and introduce the iPhone 5 right as we head into the busy holiday shopping season.

Digital Daily also points to an Avian Securities investor note that corroborates reports of a later iPhone 5 release.

"Conversations with yet another key component supplier indicates that production for iPhone 5 will begin in September," Avian's analysts said in a note. "This is consistent with Avian findings in the supply chain in recent months and we believe the consensus view is moving towards this scenario."

How in the hell does a device release in the same month that said device is suppose to start production?

Doing so would not \'spice things up\' it would cannabilize sales which is why Apple holds separate events. If they do this it\'s do to a shortage or major issues during development which you can bet was taking place for at least a year now. (iphone 4 was in development for 1.5yrs prior to launch). That\'s how companies work and how they have to work.
