What Really Happened To The iPhone 5?


Everyone has wanted this redesigned iPhone 5 and it was expected to be announced in Apple’s Let’s Talk iPhone event but it didn’t do that. Instead, Apple announced the iPhone 4S with so many features and it’s already on its way to be the fastest selling gadget ever.

Just before the Let’s Talk iPhone event, a case manufacturer produced 500,000 cases for that redesigned iPhone 5. So what happened? Are those case manufacturers fools?

Well, 9to5mac has posted some thoughts about what has really happened to the iPhone 5:

The iPhone 4S as you see it was originally planned to be released at WWDC with iOS 5, like every iPhone before it […] But something happened around February of this year that threw everything off. Apple was still integrating the Siri team and code into iOS and it was going much slower than planned. At the same time, Apple’s iPhone 5 (teardrop) plans were moving along on or ahead of schedule and the first prototypes were testing well. With mid-October being the earliest possible date of a Siri-fied iOS being ready – with “Apple-levels” of polish –Apple had to look at its options.

The site expects the iPhone 5 to be available in Summer 2012, may be during WWDC 2012. We’ll still be there waiting for that last project from Steve Jobs, CNET said.
