One website is reporting, with inside sources that Apple could be planning to take the wraps off the iPhone 5 early in August, which would mean a launch would come shortly.
If KnowYourMobile's intel is accurate, the next iPhone will be announced on August 7. Citing the usual "reliable industry source", no other information on the phone was provided. Wired says that iOS 6 would also arrive with the next iPhone.
The "leak" comes a day after KitGuru published photos of what it claimed was a test model of the iPhone 5 (the post has since been removed from KitGuru), KitGuru's alleged test model leak closely resemble those leaked in May by 9to5Mac.
TechRadar remains skeptic to the date with them reminding that everybody that KnowYourMobile has been wrong about Apple rumors in the past and has no proven track record. But that doesn't mean the rumor can't be correct, so we'll take it with a pinch of salt. Apple released the iPhone 4S last October, breaking its summer cycle of launching the a new iPhone.
Other previous rumors included the iPhone 5 to be similar in form factor with the iPhone 4/$s and they will have a unibody metal consturction, making the overall device thinner. The screen could also receive a bump in size from 3.5 inches to 4 inches.
