iPhone 5 gets October release date, not September?

A new source has claimed that the iPhone 5 launch is more likely to occur sometime in October, not the mid-September date that’s been bandied around.

That’s according to the typically reliable John Paczkowski at All Things Digital,  who’s been talking to that rumour mill perennial, a ‘source familiar with Apple’.

With regards to that September release date, the mysterious mole said, “I don’t know why AT&T’s (US phone network) calling for all hands on deck those weeks, but it’s not for an iPhone launch.”

So if not next month, when? “October,” the source said, not offering anything more concrete. This date still falls between those recruitment dates for iPhone experts spotted last month.

Apple typically announce the latest versions of their iPhone at the WWDC each year, but this year there was no new hardware, just lots of information on iOS 5, the new software set to be core to the iPhone when it does finally arrive.
