IPhone 5 Expected in October ,2012 with biggest changes

IPhone 5 Expected in October with Major Changes - Mobiledia: "Apple will launch the iPhone 5 in October, according to Japanese blog Macotakara, a permanent change to the handset's release schedule to accommodate major changes of its flagship model.

The Cupertino, Calif.-based company unveiled the first four iterations of its smartphone at the World Wide Developers Conference in June, with a release following just a few weeks later. However, the iPhone 4S broke that tradition last year with a pre-holiday October launch, which led to the highest sales of an Apple handset ever.

 Analysts also expect the iPhone 5 to feature some of the biggest changes to the device since the iPhone 4, and Apple may need the extra time to iron out any lingering issues resulting from such a shift. 

'It is also rumored that Apple's next iPhone will likely feature LTE support for both Verizon and AT&T's network, an addition that will likely have a significant impact on the device's battery life. Apple engineers will need to assure the iPhone 5's battery does not become a victim of faster data speeds, a common complaint leveled against several other LTE-capable devices.
