Like this one, but a 5!


Apple tends to release their iPhone updates June of each year. That's why it's not entirely surprising that we'd see the handset June of 2011. However, we also heard rumors from publications with credible sources saying that the announcement may be delayed. As of right now, it's unclear whether this means such a delay for the device. Doubtful, since the iPhone is one of Apple's biggest products, and they want to keep it fresh.

The latest rumor comes from Korea's ETNews, reporting that the iPhone 5 would be announced at an event after WWDC. Still, some are skeptical as Sony's CEO Howard Stringer mentioned that they will be supplying 8MP camera sensors to Apple. Then again, website TUAW points out that even that may be a misunderstanding as Stringer did not name any devices, he simply said they were supplying components for the Cupertino-based company.

Sorry, folks. This is what you get when you combine hype with speculation with anticipation. It's a bit messy, isn't it?

We're sure things will become more clear as June draws near. For now, just treat this rumor lightly, because if anything new happens, it will be all around the internet within hours anyway. Still, it's worth keeping tabs on all the Apple rumors.
