We have heard several rumors about Apple’s next smartphone. What it’ll look like, what kind of hardware it’ll house, and even who will offer  it. We’ve also heard a lot of speculation regarding the device’s launch date.

We’ve been hearing gossip since as far back as April suggesting a September release for the next iPhone, and iPhoneItalia seems to confirm that further with leaked information from a wireless carrier…

The blog has received information from a Swisscom executive claiming his company has already been contacted by Apple regarding iPhone 5 distribution. The tipster told them that the iPhone 5 would be launching in the U.S. on September 5th, and then would go international a month later.

Though the blog says the source is 100% certain about the information, it’s hard not to be a bit skeptical. Especially when Verizon’s COO Lowell McAdam stated on their earnings call today that Verizon though the iPhone 5 was coming in June.

If Verizon’s COO doesn’t know when Apple will launch their next smartphone, how would a Swisscom executive come by that information?

While it’s likely we will see the next iPhone in September, chances are it won’t be available until later in the month. At least with the end of July approaching, we’re not that far away from finding out.

What do you think?

    Frankly, I am sick of the rumors. Really wish you would just stop posting about release dates until they have been confirmed.

    • ac

      Don’t read the blog and comment then…it’s that simple!

    • Matt

      +1 .. People read blogs for news, not constant rumours about release dates and design concepts, who gives a sh*t seriously.

      • aleks

        i do

      • CJ

        @ alexs thats’ cos you hve no life and probably jack off over rumours and worthless shit on blogs.

    • wass

      Finally!. Someone else that finds all news headlines that end with a ? worthless.

  • Randy Wheeler

    I assume they all know by now. If they were to let the public know…they would violate some clause and you know what that means!!! So chill out, it will be released and you will get your paws on one before you know it. Besides, the more they push it back the better the technology they can put in it, so quit complaining!

  • Jason

    I hope this turns out to be true.. the sooner the better. can’t wait to upgrade from my 3GS.

  • Takean

    I just don’t care really anymore. I used to be excited…but now I’m just blah. I love my iPad 2, and I’m actually thinking of ditching the iPhone for an android phone since I have the iPad. I know that’s blasphemy here but I really like the flash usability on the androids. And since I do flash websites it would be great to be able to show them off on a phone.

    Plus apples latest sue everyone who wants to make a phone strategy is kinda a bummer too.

    • Rae

      Just get the app–CloudBrowse–for ur flash websites

  • Bradibiza

    More than likely the COO of verzion is talking bollocks & the Swiss dude is telling the truth. Why would an American CEO know more information than a Switzerland CEO . Or in typical fashion Americans presume that the world spins around them. And us Europeans are the poorer cousins. Ps my house is older than your country and your country is chinas bit.ch.

    • Not only is Apple an American company, all their products tend to launch in America first.

      On top of that, Verizon has over 100 million customers compared to Swisscom’s 5.9 million.

      THAT’S why it wouldn’t make sense for a Swisscom employee to know more than Verizon’s COO.

      There’s no American bigotry here, just looking at the facts.

      Thanks for reading.

  • Mcsteven

    I’m just surprised we still don’t know what it’ll look like. Something should of leaked by now…

  • Mcsteven

    @bradibiza- it’s easy for you to say those things online isn’t it?… I dare you to say that to a true Americans face. You and I both know you’d get yourself knocked out.. We’re not the greatest country in the world because of our weaknesses, we are because of our strengths…
    And no I’m not a bigot, I wouldn’t willy nilly go around and talk bad about others for no reason like you so have.

    • Bradibiza

      I have told Americans to their face and they agree , as they are the 5% of Americans who own a passport & violence is not on their agenda.

      The words “knocked out” are perfect words to describe a country which has bullied it’s way around the globe since the great depression.

      And describe a true American ? I’m pretty sure native Americans wouldn’t call the last 300 years of immigrant migration to their country as true Americans.

      The greatest country in the world you say! For what reason ? Capitalism? war mongering? Budwiser ? Junk food ? Health care ? Globalization ? The list goes on & on.

      If it makes you feel better, Americans are hated throughout the world, because of jealousy! 99% of American haters would jump at the chance of obtaining a green card, me included. (as the only people who like the British throughout the globe are Americans)

      Because just like the Americans the British are hated with as much passion. Why ? Basically because we speak English, we think we are better than everyone else and have a godly right to do anything we choose fit.
      Remind you of anybody ?

      If you was a true American you would be disgusted & ashamed of your country. Lets forget about the oil wars… Two words “Bush” “Twice”

      Apple is an American company true, but it has all their products made in China? So it can make more money. You still proud of being an American?

      Your banks & government actions caused a world wide recession.

      You are currently on the tip of defaulting on your national debt…

      So if you think that I believe what an American CEO says is true, specially one who is more concerned with selling all those iphone 4s to the 100mil customers you say They have, you must surely be a Android user or a French man.

      And for good measure, your national sports of rounders (baseball) is a girls game on steroids, and your Football teams are as artificial as the plastic turf they play on. Thus why 5.7 billion people call it “American Football” as just like the country its new, plastic & fake

      Lots of love

      Your English cousin Brad

      Ps good luck with china

      Pps sorry IDB

        U dont have aids on your country?? WOWWWW!!!! how can u lie like this? ……
        besides Brasil in south america, some countries in Europe are known for its prostitution places

        C’mon guys this is not the place to talk about those things, this discussion is about iphones, apple releases and IOS,

        every country and every nation haves its ups and downs, let’s leave this for their politicians and ONGs

      • Cameron

        @Fabio Rodrigues Yes every country has it’s ups and downs but if you were American you would say your country is perfect and then continue about how much Europe sucks! So go shove it up your arse!

      • Cameron

        USA SUCK! USA SUCK!

      • Ike

        That is so true Sam

      • Cameron

        So not true lke!

  • Danish

    Advanced and developed^^

  • I don’t believe the US will get the iPhone 5 a full month before anywhere else. If this is the case then there is a serious problem with the 15 million units supposedly “ordered”

  • Eli

    @Cameron dude who do you think brought the iPhone to Britain…. So Stfu and just let us do our job. Bring new technology to your dumb country.

    • Bradibiza

      The Chinese brought the iphone to The Americans, the Europeans & everyone else, they built it, packed it and shipped it.

      Now I’m throwing a guess out here. That apple HQ’s design team is a mixture of earthlings from all nationalities .

      I’ve done a fair bit of traveling and met numerous different types of humans. And I’ve never met a nation so empowered with them selfs as the average American.

      Yes I agree, that the country called USA sports every different possible landscape you can Imagine. There are 360+ million people live there, and the Government is portrayed to be the boss of all nations, so yes your country seems to you as the greatest in the world.

      However you have less than 5% of the world population and the other 95% dislike you with a passion. Including all other English speaking nations, Canadians, Britons & Australians.

      The American wealth is based on money that does not exist & you have more national debt than any other country on the planet.

      It’s the only country to have used the atom bomb in anger & the last country to official take part in WWII
      (it wasn’t USA who won that by the way, it was a piece of English engineering called the Spitfire)

      America is the land of the free? Really tell that to the Mexicans!

      The British in the bigger picture have caused more atrocities throughout history than America has had hot dinners. And we will carry on causing them, while hidden behind Americas skirt like the obedient lap dog it is.

      But times are changing and fast, the Internet is now the Greatest force on planet Earth, so be careful of your boasts of greatness as 95% of the planet disagrees.

      My advice, do what I do when I meet anyone who isn’t English, bow your head in shame, apologise for your countries lack of respect and show meekness …

      Then you will truly become great

    • Cameron

      Fuck off and listen to Bradibiza!

  • reem

    Come on guys , it’s only a phone , it doesn’t matter from where you are, American, Chinese, Indian, British or even Persian. I Don’t really mind who will make the phone . They all have bodies and minds.I will be happy if the iPhone would be apiece of art in it’s technologies and design, so I can ubgrade my 3GS and make my husband stop teasing my by his galaxy s 2 ,
    By the way I’m a Muslim Arabic lady from Dubai, UAE.

  • jbird

    You are all IDIOTS!! America is the GREATEST country in the world, deal with it!! You British and other Europeans would all be Germans if it were not for us here in America! India you are not the oldest do some research….. Apple is an American company with American ideals, they are taking over the phone world just like we have taken over the ENTIRE world…. you don’t like us… who cares, we don’t!! Our poorest people live better than your average citizens…. yes we have debt but we also have the LARGEST economy in the world and our debt to GDP ratio is still lower than most countries! I know it pisses you off that we have $3 gas, free iphone deals and still piss away more money than you make on one good night of partying but deal with it…. if you and “95%” of the world hate us then stop trying to BREAK into our country with the Mexicans!! You should also know that America gives more money and food and foriegn aid than ANY other country in the world…. I don’t think ANY of you want to step up to the plate and take on that role!! Show shut up and buy American iphiones!!!!

    • Ike

      REal talk

  • Bradibiza

    I’ve got a few bones to pick with your statements…..

    “You British and other Europeans would all be Germans if it were not for us here in America!” <————- America was to chicken shit to get involved in ww2, they thought Germany was to much of a threat. 30 months & tens of 1000s of deaths later pearl habour forced your hand. If you'd of stepped up to the plate sooner maybe many tens of 1000s more deaths could have been avoided, not to mention you didn't do it for free, the British had to pay for it. But let's not dwell on that subject.

    "Our poorest people live better than your average citizens" <————— I wish we had free health care, free dentists, free housing & unlimited unemployment benefit… oh wait we do… Do Americans?

    "yes we have debt but we also have the LARGEST economy in the world" <———- in context more people equal bigger economy .

    "and our debt to GDP ratio is still lower than most countries!" <——- by most you mean 36th out of 128.

    "I know it pisses you off that we have $3 gas" <—— In Venezuela the price of gas is 8.5cents a gallon, who's felling pissed off now?

    "free iphone deals" <—- you surely have no idea what you are talking about. In the UK nearly 3 Years ago for $38 US dollars a month I got unlimited Internet , unlimited text messages, 25 picture messages and 1000 minutes of calls to any network at any time. And 3 friends & family numbers.

    "“95% of the world hate us then stop trying to BREAK into our country with the Mexicans <——— Did you know by the year 2050 over 1/4 of Americans will speak Spanish as their 1st language? I'd advise Clases de español que de cerdo racista.

    "You should also know that America gives more money and food and foriegn aid than ANY other country in the world" <—— really! again in context if we look at those figures via GNI (gross national income) the Greateat country in the world America comes 19th in 2010 figures.

    "I don’t think ANY of you want to step up to the plate and take on that role!!" <——— I've not only stepped up to the plate and hit a home run, but another 17 other countries have smashed your pitch "Out of the Park" And are casually walking to 4th base as you scratch your nuts & eat McDonalds.

    ———————————-

    That aside, the sooner you stop listening to Fox News, CNN, BBC & other Propaganda machines the quicker you will be free from the matrix…

    Agree or disagree with me, but let's take this off IDB and allow me to serve you on twitter

    • usa haha

      yes thats why your fucking country is in the shitter right? in the uk people make an average £30K a year in the us that number is $46K why is that then thats a 3 thousand dollars per person? you did not save no on in the second world war. bıggest loss of lives was from russia and they ARE THE ONES THAT FİNİSHED NAZİ GERMANY WHİLST USA WAS PLAYİNG CATCH UP. sooo lets put it this was usa was fighting with european intel and with the brithish armed forces and russia raped germans thru asia alllll the way back to berlin then forced hitler to suck on a his own c**k before he killed himself. so go f*ck yourself you stupıd en educated yank. most you nation cant find USA on a map. FACT. the rest think europe is a country. education level is low. everyone is fat and you are dependant on the rest of the world to keep your economy standing. + usa love to jews more than money……………………….. thats like europeans saying muslims FİRST FOR EVERYTHİNG. let the christians wait. iphones and selling stuff does not make a country a good one or donating money to poor country,s. i love one thing and that is the way usa kills its own people and says ıt was bin laden and we cant find him its been 10 years but we cant find him. now with your black pesident losing votes. what to do………… o btw i kılled osama and we threw his body in the see as we dont need it? makes sense not to prove to the world that they killed him.
