Leaked screenshot of inventory screen confirms September 21st launch of Apple iPhone 5
A screenshot of a retailer's inventory system reveals some accessories for the Apple iPhone 5 with a release date of September 21st. To be precise, this is from accessory maker iShieldz which is coming out with a iPhone 5 screen protector. Now maybe it's just our way of thinking, but an Apple iPhone 5 screen protector needs an Apple iPhone 5 to protect. And what would be the point of releasing the accessory on September 21st if the device hasn't been released yet? So based on this screenshot, we would expect the actual launch of the Apple iPhone to take place September 21st.

Good news. Let's just hope the new iPhone is as good as the iPhone 4 when it was released. If not then I'm screwed, cause then I'll officially hate everything on the market.

It might just be me, but I'm not excited about this year's iPhone. After last year's disappointment and seeing the screenshots as as the IOS6 preview all I can really say is MEH.
Android and Apple are just re-hashing the same old designs with marginal improvements.
Nokia and WP8 seem to have innovated and brought something new to the market. Let's just hope that PureView lives up to expectations!

Why were you disappointed last year? I thought most people figured there would be a 4S instead of a whole new device. I'm not all that excited for iOS 6 either though. I have an iPhone 4 and I was really hoping for the addition of Siri. I have many times where it would come handy and voice commands just doesn't cut it at all. iOS 6 seems more like an incremental update like Mountain Lion was for my Mac.

As good as the iPhone 4 when it was released? When was the iPhone good?

Hey man, don't be a hater. I've owned every galaxy s phone and to this day I will still say the iphone 4/4s is a very visual appealing device with a very capable gpu and high quality screen. We know that lacking memory expansion and replaceable batteries is a drag so some. And by today's standards the screen is severely undersized in the opinion of quite a few (not everybody), u can't say the phone isn't a respectable device in its own right.

The iPhone is appealing to the eye I must admit buy it runs ios which makes it boring the iPhone did set some standards but OEMs passed them

Made a mistake Thumb down.and just like nick i had own galaxy devices...the galaxy 1 and currently using galaxy s2. I also had the galaxy tab 7" but im done with samsung. All they do is increase the screen size every 2 months and rename them their product.if i ever buy another android i want it to be more stable.too many glitches,not responding. I dont care about widget or live wallpaper never use them 'cause we all know how it drains the battery fast.
Im not an android or apple fan or enemy...i just want something tha is going to work for the next 2 years.

I have to agree! Samsung keeps on dropping new devices. The specs are good, but the build quality couldn't be worse! As a result the phones don't retain much value.

Honestly, the iPhone was good before. WAS. Apple peaked with the iPhone 4 I think. Now, they're just gonna go downhill with quality. The 4S was a disappointment, and the new iPhone will probably be one too. Unless Apple has a surprise, which I doubt

Ironically in that the iPhone 4 was the most problematic phone we ever stocked,specifically for reception and dropping calls along with the normal problems that arise with the handsets. I would say apple peaked at the 3gs perhaps and its been generic and downhill from there

The 4S was just a better iPhone 4...where's the disappointment coming from?
34. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4201; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
The expectations that were had for the 4S compared to the actual product is what was disappointing. The new iPhone will probably be what everyone hoped the 4S was.

"Let's just hope the new iPhone is as good as the iPhone 4 when it was released."
Yes, I agree, let's hope they are the same as iPhone 4 is the same as iPhone 4S. :)

Try Cupcake. Because Gingerbread > iOS 6.

I'm sure it'll look nice but seriously, they haven't made a single change to how iOS looks for 6 years. Headed straight to boring town.

Everyone (iOS and Android users alike) spends so little time on the homescreen, its ridiculous how much we talk about it. Aside from the homescreen, I actually think iOS has the more visually appealing UI
