    Should be an exciting few weeks leading up to the official announcement. Can't wait to actually see the thing.

    Is that a legit pic of the iphone 5 manufacturing in that article? Wondering if that bezel tells us anything.

    Here's the best line: "The date could and likely will change again, but we feel it is necessary to report the company’s current plan."

    That's what I was wondering. The screen area on the parts look a bit larger and there's something different about the home button... :confused:

    That was exactly my thinking too.

    It is a legit pecture of the iPhone 5 Manufacturing according to the article. See how the caption reads "notice the elongated gesture home button" or something along those lines.

    If it's legit, the screen won't be edge to edge, although it'll be pretty damn close.

    That is code for, "as always we really don't know but this is as plausible as Area 51."

    I'd rather have a touch home button not the physical button but whatever. :D

    Still wondering if iOS 5 will be out in September. I'm thinking a GM release before the announcement of the iPhone 5.

    ^ that is likely. Unless you see the GM release before the date you can purchase the phones you can bet iOS 5 isn't included. I can't see them releasing iOS 5 after the iPhone 5 though, tbh.

    Yeah, agreed. Just hoping that they don't release it a day or two before the iPhone 5 is released like last year with iOS 4 because this rumour has an October launch. I can't wait that long for iOS 5 :p

    I'm seriously starting to believe that after the gizmodo/iPhone 4 debacle, apple has said "Alright. Fine. We'll play your game. Here's 50 rumors to sift through. Now figure out which ones are correct."

    If you're a developer then I can understand. I am not so I wait.

    Nope, I'm no developer. I do sometimes download the GM seed, but other times I just wait for the public release.

    I normally get my iphones from a network provider but this year i will buy from apples online store. Can anyone explain the process. For example. Will i be able to place a pre order on the apple store and get delivery of the phone on the launch date? Thanks.

    Yup. You order from the Apple online store then it will be shipped to you. Sometimes it'll come a day or two before the actual launch day, but most of the time it comes on launch day or maybe a day or two after depending on your location.
