A recent report suggests that the upcoming iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will start shipping from Sept. 20 onwards and the next-generation iPads from Oct. 25 onwards.
Apple is rumored to be holding a press event on Sept. 10 where the long-awaited iPhone 5S and the budget iPhone 5C are expected to make their debut. If the latest report is to be believed, the new iPhones will become available as early as Sept. 20.
"A few days ago a source who wishes to remain anonymous to us revealed that the iPhone 5 S and the iPhone 5 C will be announced on September 10 and will be released on October 25. The same source comes to correct the statement on dates, saying late October will see the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 and not the iPhone 5 S and iPhone 5 C," reports TechManiacs (translated).
The TechManiacs report now brings in more good news for iFans and says that the iPhones will release on Sept. 20. The report also indicates that iOS 7 will release on Sept. 16. The next-generation iPhones are expected to be the first devices to run on the company's latest operating system.
The time schedule given by TechManiacs seems very realistic when compared to the iPhone 5 launched in 2012. Apple launched the iPhone 5 on Sept. 12. The smartphone then went up for pre-order on Sept. 14 and started shipping from Sept. 21 onwards.
Apple released the iPhone 4S on Oct. 14 (Friday) 2011 and the iPhone 5 released on Sept. 21 (Friday) 2012. Apple usually releases its iPhones on a Friday, giving customers more time to play about with their latest handsets over the weekend. Consequently, the release date of Sept. 20 seems even more accurate.
The year 2013 has seen the launch of several Android, Windows and BlackBerry devices. Now it seems that Apple will hit the market with an array of devices such as the iPhone 5S, the budget iPhone 5S, iPad 5, iPad mini 2 and more.
With just a few more weeks left before Sept. 10 dawns, we can only wait for Apple to take the curtains off the next-generation iPhones.
