Apple CFO hints a September iPhone 5 release

Posted on Jul 23 2011 - 10:40am by Robert

Cupertino-based tech company Apple seemingly confirmed the upcoming launch of a new iPhone model by the end of 2011’s third quarter. This leads to the speculation that a possible iPhone 5 release date will be on September, not August this year.

According to a report by Apple Insider, Apple Inc.’s Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer hinted during an earnings call that the upcoming iPhone 5 could be launched in September, after suggesting a 12 percent revenue drop for the third quarter. September seems to be one of the company’s strongest seasons, so an analyst asked Oppenheimer why he’s telling people that Apple will have a 12 percent revenue decline.

The company expects that iPhone sales will slow down sometime in the next 10 weeks as people will be looking forward to the launch of the new iPhone.

The CFO said that there is “a lot going on in the fall with iOS 5 and iCloud,” and added that “future product transition that we will not talk about today.” Some reports say that the future product transition may be the iPod Touch, iPhone 5 or the new MacBook Air.

Based on reports online, Apple may introduce a new version of the iPod Nano and iPod Touch, along with the iPhone 5. A number of credible websites have confirmed that according to their sources, the new iPhone is slated to be released soon, and will come with Apple’s new iOS 5 operating system out of the box.
