The much anticipated next iPhone from Apple is rumoured to be launching in New Zealand on October 9 according to ‘a contributer’ at kiwi tech blog TechDay. And he (or she) should know because ‘a source’ told him (or her) so.
According to a post on TechDay written by somebody only identified as ‘a contributor’, ‘a source within Apple’ has said the next iPhone instalment will be available here from October 9.
Now, with fans clamouring for news of the iPhone 5, Techday has learned from a source within Apple that the device will be launched here in New Zealand on October 9.
The prediction fits in with the latest iPhone 5 speculation internationally, with Wall Street Journal saying last week that US telcos AT&T, Verizon and Sprint are all preparing for the device to hit stores in mid-October, around a month later than expected.
This date could be delayed even further if the manufacturers involved are unable to keep to the production schedules, the Wall Street Journal said, citing ‘people familiar with the matter’.
Hmmm. So ‘a contributor’ is naming ‘a source’. Riiiight. Obviously these rumours have yet to be confirmed by anyone in authority and it’s unclear just who within Apple TechDay is claiming to have sourced this info from (very few would actually be privy to the facts, and even fewer still would risk their neck leaking this to a kiwi blog exclusively – no offence, TechDay), so take this with a pinch of salt but we’ll keep you up to date with any developments as they happen.
