Apple to Announce the 'iPhone 5' on August 7th? [Rumor]

Know Your Mobile claims to have learned that Apple will announce the 'iPhone 5' on August 7th.

A reliable industry source who wishes to remain anonymous revealed to Know Your Mobile that Apple's highly-anticipated and much-rumoured iPhone 5 will be launched via a keynote speech on August 7.

The new date correlates with reports from earlier in the month the iPhone 5's release had been brought forward from October to August.



Apple announced the iPhone 4S on October 4th of last year but hasn't given any indication of when it might announce an update to its popular smartphone.

it would make sense to announce it sooner. I thought they'd give like a 20-30 second teaser trailer at the june wwdc. The ip4 early adopters are all out of contract and looking for an upgrade. All this time between is time for them to go to android or look into the windows phone. They'll lose some on turnover.

On "know your mobile" First they say the announcement is august 7th, then they follow that up with saying "iPhone 5 will be launched via a keynote speech on August 7." . Just so everyone knows, they would never say it was available on that same day otherwise everyone would leave the room to go get in line

I could see Apple announce the feature set on August 7 but not ship until 4 or 5 weeks later in mid-September just to play mind games with Samsung, Windows phone, etc., but also to reassure those millions of iPhone 4 owners with 2-year contracts coming due that the iPhone 5 will be worth the wait and not to jump ship for the Galaxy Nexus III.

That iToy seems improved. So now kids can act like they own an iPhone 5.

Sadley being a total apple fanboy I would have to agree. Eaither way I will still get the next iPhone due to apples top of line quality, but I am disipointed of apples designs as of late. They really need to step it up! Way up beyond the reach of other phones. Set them so appart that Microsoft drops the phone line all together. I don't see this happening because Microsoft seams full steam ahead with cool products. Even if the surface tablet crashed during the keynote. Hahaha Apple has 100 billion or so in cash, they need to devote a few billion to more R

As much as I want the next iPhone if it looks anything like that draw up in the white I am not buying it.

So serious question...is there a reliable website for Apple news? This is the first one I found a year ago and have become used to it...but is there a really good one which is respected by most people? Thanks.

This is an amazing website. I use it as a web app. Provides important news that somehow involves apple and it's partners. Another brilliant and extremely popular app is called app advice. It provides news about new apps, update features and apple news. These two news platforms covered the last wwdc very well. Take a look

Thanks for pointing out the obvious bob. We know what the website does. It's well below sub-par

I don't have the time to post gay news about stuff that isn't actually happening. That's why I don't have a website.

And now Apple knows one industry leaker based on the rumor of an August 7th announcement. And they thought it was the guy they told August 10th at first! No soup for you! ... oops ... No iPhone for you!

I don't care when it will happen, but I hope you're ready for what I just found out and I hope it's true, too: The design won't change. Add LTE, NFC, an A6 chip, whatever, but I don't want to see ANY design changes again, ever! Not this year, not in 5 or ten years, not at all.

I heard it had a thunderbolt connector at the bottom to replace the 30 pin multi-feature port. Then the dock has the video and other ports, and the sync times are sweet sweet sweet ... 2GB ram, 16:9 display, a bit taller, quad core CPU, 32GB to 256GB of storage, and in LCD touch digitizer so no digitizer or cover glass ... and much thinner, LTE, just sweet sweet sweet... And if you microwave the packing it turns into smores ... Of course I heard all that on rumor sites (except the last tasty bit) so it has no basis in fact at all...
