Apple To Unveil iPhone 5 At Media Event On October 4th? [Updated]

Tim Cook iPhone 5 Media event

It is widely speculated that Apple’s iPhone 5, which is already seeing unprecedented demand will be available in the first half of October. In fact, we’ve have heard October 7thand October 15th as the possible release dates, which means that Apple needs to have the special media event to launch their new iPhone either at the end of September or the first week of October.

AllThingsD has just reported that according to their sources Apple will hold its media event to launch iPhone 5 on Tuesday, October 4th.

That’s the day Apple is currently expected to hold its next big media event, according to sources close to the situation, where the tech giant will unveil the next iteration of its popular iPhone. [..]

[..] While Apple could certainly change its plans anytime, sources said that the October 4 date has been selected by the company to showcase the iPhone 5. Sources added that the plan is now to make the new device available for purchase within a few weeks after the announcement.

AllThingsD also claims that Apple’s new CEO Tim Cook will be presiding over the event. A report over the weekend had claimed that Apple will have the event on October 5th.

Apple is also expected to unveil the next generation iPod touch product line and a cheaper entry-level iPhone called iPhone 4S along with the iPod product line at the media event. It remains to be seen if Apple will still be available to launch iPhone 5 by mid-October.

Even though Steve Jobs had resigned as Apple’s CEO, we were hoping that Steve Jobs will introduce iPhone 5 . We’ll definitely miss him and wonder if any future Apple product launch will be the same without him. Though we don’t want to take anything away from Tim Cook and wish him the best, we doubt it. What do you think?


Jim Dalrymple of The Loop who has a good track record when it comes to Apple related news seems to agree.
