The manufacturing partners that Apple employees have begun assembling the iPhone 5 according to a recent report. However, the company that is reporting that the iPhone 5 is on the way as a bit of a mixed track record, so you have to take what they say with a grain of salt. The report will follow news this morning that the German Apple carrier partner had begun presales of the next version of the Apple iPhone, and that the earliest versions of the device such as unlocked iPhone 4 are not going to come with IOS five.
The official announcement of the device from Apple is expected to come at some point next week. The company has made no announcement about what they can expect the device to become available, and Apple is waiting for supplies to come together. An official announcement from the company is expected to be made at some point next week regarding the date of the iPhone release.
Many of the large retail stores have instructed their employees not to take any time off between the 22nd of this month and the ninth of next month, which would suggest that the release would be coming soon after the 22nd, an initial rush for the device would end of the 9th.
The iPhone 5 will likely go down as one of the most popular devices ever launched if the initial hype for the device lives up to it. It has quickly become one of the world’s most popular and anticipated devices based on the fact that Apple is uncharacteristically releasing a fully updated and upgraded version of the device so soon after the last major release. The iPhone four was a popular release for Apple last year, and they are reportedly looking to capitalize on that with a release coming just one year after the release of the unlocked iPhone 4.
