Flipboard update for iOS coming on September 21, in time for iPhone 5 launch

iPhone and iPad owners are probably well familiar with Flipboard – the popular app that delivers news in a neatly-organized, magazine-style format. Android users also got a taste of the experience soon after the Samsung Galaxy S III hit the market. To date, the application has been downloaded over 20 million times.

But now that the iPhone 5 has arrived, is Flipboard going to be updated in order to take advantage of that bigger, 4-inch screen, instead of running in a letterbox? You bet! Word comes from Flipboard CEO Mike McCue, who stated that a new version of the app will be released on September 21, which is exactly when the iPhone 5 will become available in retail stores. In addition, McCue didn't miss the chance to share his positive impressions about the iPhone 5 and to point out how beneficial the additional real estate will be to the look and feel of Flipboard.

So in case you are getting an iPhone 5 soon, make sure you put Flipboard on the list of applications you might want to get. And in case you haven't tried it out yet, check it out on iTunes to see what you've been missing.
