Apple Rumors: Next Gen iPhone Orders Placed, iPad 3 in September
Last month, we were the first to report that Apple will start production + shipping of next generation iPhone 5 this summer, while every other news site and blog was reporting that iPhone 5 was delayed. Now many tech websites are reporting that Apple will start production of iPhone 5 soon and will ship it by September. Even the highly unreliable analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray now says that Apple has placed orders for new equipment to iPhone manufacturing equipment supplier, which means Apple is setting up the production lines.
