If you didn’t already know, Apple is holding a media event September 12 2012, and this is the date we expect them to unveil the new iPhone 5. Apparently the new iPhone will become available for pre-order on that same day.

That’s according to a new report. We knew that the release date would be within a few days of the unveiling (in fact, it’s meant to be the Friday following the unveiling, September 21), but we didn’t previously know that they would be offering the new iPhone for pre-order on the same day the release it.
This wouldn’t be the first time Apple has done this, as they did the same thing with the iPhone 4S last year, becoming unveiled and available for pre-order on the same day – October 7th, 2011. I’m sure they will have no problem shifting millions of units, even with the almost instantaneous availability after the handset being unveiled – they didn’t with the iPhone 4S.
There hasn’t been much speculation as to the pre-order and release dates in other countries – only the United States. What we know so far indicates to an October 5th release for other countries. So not too long after the initial US release.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are the 2017 iteration of the iPhone.
On September 12th, we’re also going to be seeing a new iPad mini device, and the long-awaited iOS 6 mobile operating system for the iPhones, iPods and iPads.
What We Know About the New iPhone
Besides the dates that the new iPhone is going to be unveiled, we know a fair amount more about the design and features too. So let’s take a look at what we know so far about the new iPhone.
As you can see from the picture, the design of the New iPhone 5 has changed somewhat compared to the old iPhone 4S. They still look similar, but the new iPhone boasts a metallic looking back plate cover, a slightly taller 16:9 screen, a new smaller dock connector, relocated camera and it’s a little bit thinner than its predecessor too.
On top of this we also have iOS 6 which brings a huge heap of changes in itself, this is something I’m really looking forward to seeing.
One thing that we’re all just guessing about at the moment is the name of the new iPhone. Will it be called The New iPhone? The iPhone 5, The iPhone 6G? Who knows… what do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
