Second Analyst Says iPhone 5 Production Pushed to September
Kuo has been told that the iPhone 5 will go into trial production in August and mass production in September. In addition, his supply chain sources indicated that Apple's next handset will not feature an all-new-design, but rather only "slight modifications" from the iPhone 4.
has heard that the iPhone 5 will include the faster A5 processor already shipping in the iPad 2, as well as a higher resolution 8 megapixel rear camera. Additionally, he has been told that Apple will switch to a Qualcomm baseband for both GSM and CDMA models, along with a new antenna design, which hopefully will finally and completely fix any "death grip" issues.
Kuo's report, however, states that Apple will unveil its iPhone 5 at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), scheduled for June 6 through 10 in San Francisco. However, other reports, and Apple's own statements have pointed to WWDC 2011 being software-focused (iOS 5 and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion), with no new hardware introductions.
