    I was just wondering what the chances are that ios5 may be released a week to a few days before the new hardware launch.

    As far as I can remember this situation has happened in the past.

    Would make sense to prove all new features are 100% perfect for the new hardware.

    Anyone thinking along similar lines?

    I'm not following your reasoning. How would releasing iOS 5 a few days before releasing new hardware impact the quality iOS 5 on that new hardware? A few days is not sufficient time to update the software on the devices before release.

    Developers have been banging away on iOS 5 betas for several months. This front page article talked about some of the details of creating the iOS 5 master for the unannounced products.

    It's entirely possible that iOS 5 could be released months before an iPhone 5 if the hardware is not ready. iOS 5 will be released within the next month regardless.
