Obviously when the word “rumor” is in the title, the content of the article should be taken with a grain of salt. We try and report any new next generation iPhone information, whether it be rumor or speculation, to give readers a full marker set to draw their own conclusions.

Combining all of the gossip we’ve heard so far, the iPhone doesn’t sound like it’s coming in June. While Apple has a tendency to surprise, I doubt they’d let millions of customers think that a new iPhone wasn’t coming this summer, if it was. So if they’re not following the typical release cycle, when can we expect Apple’s next smartphone?

We’ve heard multiple times that Apple might launch the next iPhone sometime in the fall, but this is the first time we’ve heard an exact date. Popular Apple blog 9to5Mac reported today that a Phones4U (wireless retailer in the UK) representative is claiming that the iPhone 5 will hit the UK market on November 21st of this year.

As the site points out, this would add to the growing pile of assumed-evidence that Apple is planning on unveiling their next iPhone in September. The tipster also mentioned that the new iPhone will be “offered on similar tariffs to those offered to early iPhone 4 adopters.”

Will we see the iPhone 5 on November 21st? Not likely. For starters, it’s a Monday and the Apple faithful know that their major product launches generally fall on Fridays. And though a November launch puts the device in prime position for the holidays, it could potentially take away sales from an assumed iPod refresh expected around the same time.

I think we’ll see some extremely impressive things next month at WWDC that will hopefully fill in some blanks on Apple’s next device. It’s been rumored that iOS 5 will be a major factor in attracting customers to the next iPhone, suggesting that the design of the device won’t be too far off of the current.

iDB is interested. Will you wait until November to upgrade?

    • Jasper

      Samsung phones aren’t really good, and also not better then iPhones from apple

    Phones4u! Sorry but living in the UK I wouldn’t believe anything that they say. They are a third party seller who just want headlines.

    I don’t get how people are saying they are goin to stay with the iPhone 4 when yet , they have no idea what apple have to offered on the generation device. Yes , we had heard rummors but those rummors are not confirmed yet . I’m just gonna wait until what they gonna announced on WWDC then I’ll make up my mind .

  • Will

    Yes I do and I love it !

    • So when the next one comes out you will still have one of the fastest phones out there right?

      So why upgrade ?

      • Will

        Design is a big one and hardware as well ?? Why wouldn’t you ? Will see more details in a month or so . I can’t wait !

  • I love the ip4
    However I don’t think the next model wouldnt be much different to the ip4
    Yes the next one will have the a5 chip and possibly a bigger mp camera and a bigger screen
    But is that enough for me to upgrade
    Not really
    The ip 4 for me is the bench mark for all other manufactures to catch up
    Don’t get me wrong there are other good smart phones out there
    But they ain’t awesome yet 🙂
