With reports of production taking off (soon), does this mean we will get the iPhone sooner? Or was previous October announcements also preceded by rampened production this time of the year?

(Wondering if those June announcements are true) :confused:

most people have pointed out that Apple always gives developers about 3 months ahead of an iOS release to test software. The next iPhone will most definitely have a new iOS and Apple hasn't released iOS 8 beta yet so most likely a June launch is unlikely.

Apple will probably release iOS 8 beta 1 during WWDC this June, so expect a September/October release.

I do agree that starting production (if the rumors are true) this early seems a little weird and would almost project a June release.

I was hoping their schedule would not be so predictable as always :rolleyes:

this would be great but i cannot see them introducing a new iPhone with an old iOS.
