iPhone 5 Release Date: Preorder Starts On September 12, Delivery On October 5
Continuing the series information about the iPhone 5 we find out today that on September 12, the device would be available for preorder on the Apple website, and the first units that will be shipped to Europe and the rest of customers in the first week of October. In the U.S. terminal would be released on September 21, as originally rumored, but the launch in Europe, Japan and other countries worldwide would only take place on October 5, Apple applying this strategy for iPad tablet release.
This change probably occurs because Apple does not have enough units ready for sale of the new iPhone 5 and two weeks between the U.S. launch and international launch of the iPhone 5 would provide sufficient time to produce enough number of units to fill demand. This new information that comes from iMore are in line with the information that came from AT & T, both websites, having in the past credible sources.
According to a rumor launched by the Los Angeles Times also, it seems that pre-orders for the iPhone 5 will begin on September 12, 2012. This is the date that is believed to reveal the new specs and prices for the new
. If these rumors are true this would be the first time Apple start pre-orders before disclosing the new iPhone. Pre-orders for iPhone 4 started after a week of its launch and pre-orders for iPhone 4S began after three days of its launch.
Those who have tried over time to buy an iPhone on launch day know better that it is not nothing but a great and endless frustration, so smart retailers have come up with another proposal for those who want to be first to hold a new iPhone 5, namely pre-orders.
