Here's a little topic for wild speculation. Last year, Apple announced that iOS 4 for the iPad would be coming 'Fall 2010.' In the end, it was officially released in the last week of November which I believe which much later than many expected. Given that this year's iPhone probably won't see it's usual June/July release, I wonder if Apple has implemented a new release timeframe across iPhone/iOS And now we jump to the wild speculation... If Apple 'announce' the iPhone 4S/5 in a special media event in September, with a release in November alongside iOS5, we may see the beginnings of a new release strategy. Announce iOS at WWDC with a beta release to developers with the hardware and final software release coming just before the lucrative holiday period. Discuss.
