Latest speculation has iOS 5 launching October 10th, Apple iPhone 5 on October 15th?

Latest speculation has iOS 5 launching October 10th, Apple iPhone 5 on October 15th?
We have some new speculation regarding the coming launch of iOS 5 and the Apple iPhone 5. According to AppleInsider, the Cupertino based firm's support center-AppleCare-was told to expect a rush of phone calls on October 10th in relation to iOS. Now, the only reason to call AppleCare about iOS would be if all of a sudden everyone using an iOS flavored device forgot how to use it, or because a new build was launched. We would have to believe it's the latter in this case even though Apple Insider says that the tip comes from a source that is unproven.

What is so important about the launch of iOS? Recently, Apple has brought out the latest build of the software just prior to releasing the newest version of its touchscreen phone. For example, in 2009 and 2010, Apple released upgraded iPhone software just before introducing the next version of the handset. In 2009, just 2 days before the Apple iPhone 3GS went on sale, Apple released version 3.0 of what was then called "iPhone software". Last year, iOS 4 was released 3 days before the launch of the Apple iPhone 4.

Another tip comes from the CEO of French carrier Orange, Stephane Richard. Richard said in a televised interview, "If I believe what we heard, the iPhone will be released Oct. 15." When the CEO of a carrier talks, it usually carries more weight in this situation than other sources. One point to bring out is that the company he heads, Orange, is in France which means that a U.S.launch could be a few days earlier. 

This seems to fit with what we earlier reported about a potential Apple iPhone 5 release, which pointed to pre-orders at the end of this month and a launch on October 7th. And around that time, we are looking for the launch of a number of high end Android models like the HTC Vigor (HTC ThunderBolt 2?) and the Samsung DROID Prime. For U.S. smartphone fans, this could be the most exciting time of the year.

same here. the iphone doesnt have an edge over the competition. They should make more UI changes and more integration services within the phone but i do like how they implemented the drop down notification bar just like how android does.

Oh, well I do. Trading in my Evo as soon as it gets off of the truck at Sprint.

And I also give a s**t about Jobs. He has pancreatic cancer (which can't be cured), and you wouldn't have your famous 1 out of 1,000,000,000 Android phone if it wasn't for him.

Show a little respect to the person who made the smartphone, even if you can't stand what he made. Get over it.

Hey idiot, Steve Jobs didn't create the smartphone. Palm did, that's why they own a patent for it.

Perhaps you should work on your grasp of the English language and try making your points clearer. I'll help you out, try "He improved the smartphone", or "He revolutionized the smartphone", or, sticking with your original wording, "He made the smartphone better" or "He made the smartphone what it is today".

I don't understand why people keep saying that without Apple android wouldn't exist. That's completely untrue. Maybe it wouldn't have existed at the time that it came out, but all of these mobile OS's would have eventually been created. No matter who did it first. It's like saying that if Henry Ford never invented the car then there wouldn't be any cars today. It's just dumb.

Oh and here's a fun fact for you Steve Jobs enthusiasts. When Steve and Steve W partnered up and started Apple, Jobs did absolutely nothing besides attempt to market the products. Steve W did everything for the company. So everything Apple has today is thanks to Steve W, not Jobs. Do some research and you'll see.

I was at an Apple store checking out a 15" MacBook Pro with Quadcore i7 CPU and the conversation moved to when iOS 5 was going to be released. October 8th to 10th was the time that I was given. Based on October 8th to 10th for iOS 5, the iPhone would be expected a week later, given recent past experience mentioned in the article.

iOS 5? You must be mistaken, dear editor. iOS 4.5 is more like it, feature-wise.

11. Dj21o (Posts: 437; Member since: 19 May 2011)


There are over 250+ new features in IOS5. Even people with one arm can use multi touch on this phone. Its nowhere near a "4.5" as you put it.

And yet:

No widgets.
No live wallpapers
No further user customization.

You might say that these features are unimportant. I don't care. They EXIST on the leading (market-share wise) smartphone OS in the world right now: Android. Ever since 2009. That's what matters. Not the number of new features - but how they compare to existing features on other platforms - when the "other platforms" is Android mostly - which has the largest market-share among all of the smartphone OSs.

its so funny that you fandroids completely lack understanding of apple's design principles.

live wallpapers and widgets run constantly. they suck battery life and use processing power. its not much, but apple has made efficiency of both of those things a priority.

and, the best part to me is that they post in EVERY iphone article on PA. this just increases the hits on these pages and causes PA to cover the iphone even more. then they complain that PA covers too much iphone news and its THEIR FAULT. too funny.

I don't give a flying FRACK about Apple's design principles. These are THEIR principles. Not MINE. I am the CONSUMER. What I want is IMPORTANT. Not some goddamn retarded principles. And I didn't get what I want. Thus I will switch to Android. And if you think that I am the only one who - you are gravely mistaken.

Seriously, get over the whole market share argument. Obviously Android is going to have a greater market share when the OS is running on WAY more phones than IOS. And Widgets and live wallpapers are just a matter of preference if you even want them. IOS is all about simplicity. It's sad that the best argument anyone has for android is that it has widgets and live walpapers... Cool dude. I like android, I have used 3 different android powered handsets and then I got my Iphone 4. they both have pros and cons and for me personally i prefer the Iphone. So stop being ignorant and talking about market share when thats a stupid argument. If android only had 4 different phones on the market then Apple would be dominating in Market share and you know it.

1. Who cares about widgets, they all look ugly as s**t.
2. You can have live wallpapers. You just need Cydia, which is so easy a 1st grader can do it.
3. Who needs customiztion when you can throw everything in folders and even rename the folders.
- You can still customize with downloading different themes.

I literally just supported all of your statements except for the first one. Some are helpful I admit, but they are not the end of the world, seeing as you use widgets to toggle data, WiFi, GPS, all that you don't need with iOS. Oh, and you don't need to hit "kill all" 24/7 or even have a task manager.

If you need a task killer, your phone failed you. :)

Dude did you say 250+ features? Really? There are only 2 new features that I know of, iCloud which have been on smartphones for years now, & the blatant Android notification steal. That is it, please list the other 248+ features please...........
iOS 5 is the same as iOS 4. The only difference is what I just listed. Again please list the 248+ other features. Thank you!

Also you repeat yourself, the first one is not a feature, the ones after that are the features. So really you are 127+ short.

"I have more but i think you get the point."

I can say the very same thing about your list iKingTrust....tard! lol

If you're ignorant about the topic you should probably not comment.

There's imessage, new gestures, built in photo editing, wireless syncing with iTunes, updates to safari, updates to the mail app. These are just a few of the updates.


It's funny because when iOS 5 was announced tech blogs all gave it great reviews and praised it and yet fandroids on PA bash it. As usual you guys are removed from reality.

The wireless syncing that they completely ripped off from the jailbreak app? I have an Android, but I've owned both. It seems like Apple gets a lot of their ideals from jailbreak stuff yet they go around suing everyone for using their patents, it's crazy. I'm not saying that either is better though. Different strokes for different folks.
