Apple to Unveil iPhone 5 at WWDC in June: Report


Published February 02, 2012


Following the fall launch of its wildly popular iPhone 4S last year, Apple reportedly plans to return to its summer launch schedule and unveil the next-generation iPhone 5 during its annual Worldwide Developer Conference in June. 

DigiTimes relayed the claim, which cited a Daiwa Securities analyst when it first appeared in Chinese-language newspaper Commercial Times on Thursday. 

The continued use of glass-to-glass touch panel technology in the iPhone 5 is the only other detail noted in the report.

Apple’s next-generation iPhone is expected to feature a completely redesigned case that utilizes a unibody aluminum architecture much like Apple’s iPad. The handset will also supposedly feature a larger display that measures approximately 4 inches diagonally. 

BGR reported in December that the new iPhone would feature a new aluminum case and a redesigned antenna system, but our source indicated that a launch would not take place until the fall.
