iPhone 5 Delayed?October 26, 2011 • Posted by CrackDefender in News • • 0 comments
The iPhone 5 might just be delayed, after so many rumors have been predicting that it would arrive in sometime in the month of October. It’s rumored right now from the New York Times that there are production problems with the manufacturers who make parts for the iPhone as well as assemble the finished product to come out to the stores are falling behind. The problem lies with a single equipment manufacturer that creates a vital component for the iPhone 5.
If the production is delayed, iOS 5 will have a longer length of time to be tested on current devices and any bugs in the code can be found. This also gives them time to do product testing and make sure they fix any kinks in the hardware. This does have its negative points though, since so many mobile cell phone carriers have geared up to release the iPhone 5 on their own networks in the middle of October. With Verizon and AT&T working on rolling out their prepaid plans for the iPhone4 mini/S, they’ll still have a fallback plan if the iPhone 5 isn’t released on time. The iPhone 4 mini/S is a cheaper smaller version of the iPhone 4 that will be rolling out to consumers sometime in the next three months.
But the rumors of the manufacturers being delayed are just that, rumors. No one will confirm or deny when the iPhone 5 is rolling off the line and into the eager hands of Apple customers, especially Apple itself. This might explain why they never gave a projected date publicly and of course keep people guessing. The only information that’s come out so far about it is from unintentional leaks from various industry insiders and company memos; we can only wait and see.
