Will The iPhone 5 Launch In September?

New rumours from Asian suppliers suggest that Apple has already confirmed orders for the next generation of the iPhone. Pegatron Technology is believed to be the involved supplier.

The Taiwanese website Digi Times has suggested that the sixth generation iPhone will be introduced to the market, in September. Previous rumours on this matter have predicted the next iPhone might be released in October.

Aside from the upcoming iPhone, Pegatron is reportedly working on a 10-inch iPad, which is expected to be released sometime in the fourth quarter. DigiTimes' information on the subject must be taken with a grain of salt, though.

Apple has already unveiled a 9.7in tablet with high-resolution display, and the company has no reasons to add just a few millimetres and suffer all the manufacturing implications. Although it is highly improbable, considering Apple's product release schedule, the report suggests that we might be introduced to the long rumoured iPad mini, in August.

The supplier handling the orders relating to this product is going to be Foxconn. In order to better comply with Apples' orders, Pegatron is said to have accommodated its facilities.

"Pegatron has also internally decided to downsize its SI motherboard department and to shift resources to Apple's orders ", notes the report.
