Apple to start pre-orders of iPhone 5 on September 30, launch to happen on October 7?

According to a new report by the blog 9to5Mac, Apple is planning to start the pre-orders for their next iPhone on September 30th while the actual launch of this device is said to be happening on October 7th or 14th, of which October 7th is more likely at this point.

According to our sources, Apple has been weighing between launching the new iPhone on October 7th or October 14th, but with the product’s latest stages of pre-mass-production currently moving along nicely, Apple is presently shooting towards a launch on the 7th.

The company has still not finalized the pre-order start date, but is debating between Thursday, September 29th and Friday, September 30th. The 30th seems more likely at this point according to one of our sources.

If Apple is planning to start the pre-orders of its next iPhone at the end of September then that clearly means that it will hold the event on that day or before that too, because Apple usually starts pre-orders of its new devices on the same day as it hosts its announcement event.

iPhone 5 is expected to feature thinner and lighter design, A5 Dual-Core Chip, 1GB RAM, 8-Megapixel camera, possibly a larger screen, and much more. We will keep you posted with any new information that becomes available about the upcoming Apple iPhone, Stay tuned.
