It appears that rumor mill is now turning to trend the next-generation iPhone launch once again, as the new report comes out suggesting that the sixth-generation iPhone will launch after a complete year from the iPhone 4S launch, as Apple is trying to maintain a new launch cycle for the iPhone. The report comes from the reliable source of Japanese blog, Macotakara, which had mixed type of track record in the past on iOS devices rumors. The blog suggests that Apple is planning to launch the sixth-generation iPhone 5 in September or October, similar to the iPhone 4S launch last year. The source claimed that Apple is planning to maintain this iPhone launch cycle “for years.”
In the past, Apple was familiar with launching its flagship iPhone device on their World Wide Developer Conference, sometime in the time period of June – July, but last year the Cupertino Company decided to hold its iPhone launch on WWDC and named the developer conference to software focused conference, and launched the next generation iPhone right before a day from Steve Jobs death, in October 2011.
Earlier, this year, it was again reported by the sources that Apple would introduce its next-generation iPhone on the WWDC 2012, but now the sources of this report smash the old rumor by saying that Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 5 in September – October while following its new iPhone launch cycle. Last year, the iPhone launch event replaced the iPod music event, which, in past years, was held right before the holiday shopping season. But as we know, at the moment the iPod is not much concentrated both by Apple and audience, just because the iPhone full fills its place in the hearts of users.
The launch of a new iPhone during the holiday shopping season paid off in a big way for Apple, which saw record sales of 37 million iPhones during its December quarter.
