Rumours have been flying around from many sources in the past days about the impending iPhone 5 launch date. Today though both Reuters and Bloomberg confirmed a September 12 Apple event where the 6th generation iPhone, often referred to as the iPhone 5, is expected to be launched. Reports have also speculated that the actual launch of the iPhone 5 will take place the following Friday, September 21. These dates are about 1 month earlier than the launch of the iPhone 4S last year; the folks from Cupertino are no doubt feeling the heat from their competitor, the Galaxy S III. These new rumours will no doubt fuel the pent up demand for the next device and possibly slow down the momentum that Samsung’s device has gained in recent months. The next generation iPhone is expected to feature a slightly taller 4 inch display and 4G LTE connectivity.
