A couple of weeks ago iMore reported that Apple would be holding their iPhone 5 event on September 12, 2012. We’ve since learned that iPhone 5 pre-orders are currently planned to begin that same day, at least in the U.S. Release is still planned for 9 days later, on September 21, 2012. We’ve also learned that the second wave of iPhone launches, the ones in international markets, will begin in the first week of October, likely October 5.
Looks like we’re a month away — at least those of us in the U.S. (The AT&T staffing schedule info that BGR obtained seems to confirm this timeline as well.)
And if Apple really does refresh the entire iOS line (including the regular iPad with the new dock connector), it’s going to be a massive holiday season.
